What is Pectoral Augmentation?
Many men want to have a larger, chiselled chest that they just cannot seem to get through diet and exercise alone. Pectoral augmentation, also known as pectoral implants, can give the appearance of a larger chest muscle through the use of implants. Using silicone implants, the patients can achieve the athletic, defined look they’ve always wanted.
At Genecov Plastic Surgery Group, our highly skilled surgeons are experienced in performing pectoral augmentations for patients throughout northern Texas, including Dallas, Southlake and Plano. If you’re interested in getting more information about the procedure, including average Dallas pectoral augmentation prices, or if you want to view some pectoral augmentation before and after photos, please contact us today.
How are Pectoral Augmentations Performed?
Pectoral augmentations are performed using general anesthesia. Implants are generally made of solid silicone elastamer, which offer patients a very natural appearance. Unlike older implant styles, silicone has a similar feel and firmness to the surrounding tissue, so they cannot be felt through the skin.
Pectoral implants are placed beneath the pectoral muscle to make the chest appear larger. Generally, the incision is made through the armpit, so no scars are visible. Unlike female breast implants, there is no risk of breaking or leaking, as the implants are solid silicone elastamer. The implant is held in place by the muscle, and may be stitched in place as well.
Am I a Good Candidate for Pectoral Augmentation?
Pectoral augmentation is an increasingly popular procedure in Dallas, Southlake and Plano. The best candidates are those who have already tried developing their chest muscles through exercise to no avail. Some people simply do not build muscle easily, however, so having pectoral augmentation can help you achieve the best results.
In some cases, pectoral augmentation is used to correct growth defects or injuries rather than just to enlarge the muscle. In this case, the goal is to return the area to its natural shape. Whatever the reason, an implant can be shaped to fit your needs perfectly. Pectoral implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, or a custom implant can be created as needed. Your surgeon will evaluate your musculature and determine how to achieve the most natural proportion.
What Kind of Post-Operative Pectoral Augmentation Care Can I Expect?
We recommend that patients take at least a week off work after pectoral augmentation surgery. You will be healed and feeling back to normal in less than two weeks. However, we recommend that you avoid strenuous activity for six to eight weeks, to allow for complete recovery.
Typically, there will be no drains involved in your recovery process, but you will receive a compression bandage wrapped around the chest to reduce swelling. You doctor may also advise you to start gentle arm-raising exercises to accelerate healing.
As with any surgery, you should limit your activity until you are completely comfortable and can exercise without any discomfort. By following your surgeon’s directions carefully, you can ensure that your implant areas heal fully.
What are the Typical Results of Pectoral Augmentation?
Pectoral implants are permanent, giving patients that well-defined, athletic look for years to come. Patients often report feeling more powerful and self-confident following the procedure. Still not sure this surgery is for you? We can provide you with a variety of pectoral augmentation before and after photos to help you make the most informed decision possible.
