Many men find that they are unable to develop their pectoral muscles even with a regular exercise regimen. The chest may also be under-developed due to a congenital defect or injury. The pectoral implant procedure helps to correct the look of the chest by placing a solid yet soft implant below the existing pectoral muscle. The pectoral implants are pliable yet firm to give the feel of a well exercised pectoral muscle. Implants are available in many sizes so that the surgeon and patient can choose an implant during the pre-operative visit that will best fit the contour and compliment the rest of the patient’s body. Single implants can be used for reconstructive purposes.
Pectoral implants come is various sizes, shapes and textures and are made of solid silicone. These implants are used primarily as an enhancement device. During your consultation, your surgeon will show you the options and help you make an informed decision with which size and shape of an implant would best suit your needs.
