At Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, pectoral implants have become in increasingly popular cosmetic procedure for men. Larger, more defined pectoral muscles can take years to develop in a gym, if at all and must be maintained with continuous rigorous working out some men do not have the genetic make-up to develop large chest muscles at all, regardless of how much time is spent in the gym. Pectoral implants are sometimes the only way for a man to achieve the chest that he desires.
It is important to realize that while pectoral implants will definitely increase mass and improve shape, they may not necessarily increase definition. While it is sometimes performed because of a congenital deformity known as pectus excavatum in which the sternum is abnormally and severely sunken in, pectoral implants are usually inserted in men who desire the appearance of increased muscle mass in their chest.
There are various pectoral implant options for men, depending on the desired results and initial consultation. The pectoral implant consultation will include an analysis of chest wall symmetry, a discussion of preferred end results, and a sampling of the different implant options in the office. Solid silicone implants come in various shapes and sizes in order to create the most natural looking and feeling results.
The existing contours and shape each man's chest will be taken into consideration in choosing which implants to use.
Dr. Eisemann usually creates a 5 cm incision in the armpit to insert the solid pectoral implants, using a narrow telescope with a small camera attached to the end. This type of surgery is referred to endoscopic pectoral implant surgery, which generally reduces bruising, bleeding and incision size. In some cases, non-endoscopic surgery methods are used. Results are visible directly after surgery, although it takes some time to realize the final end results, as some swelling will need to recede. Patients are usually instructed not to lift their arms for 2 days following pectoral implant surgery, and a light exercise program should begin within a week. Full pectoral activity and exercise is often recommended within a month after surgery.
