Male Pectoral Implants Phoenix
Male pectoral implants define and shape the chest. The implants are made of solid silicone and come in several degrees of softness and different shapes.
This procedure is beneficial for men who do not achieve the desired results from exercise and for those whose chests are congenitally malformed. It is also ideal for those who have underdevelopment of chest muscles due to an injury or growth defect. This procedure will enhance existing muscle tone and shape.
The pectoral implants come in various shapes and sizes. During the initial consultation, our board certified plastic surgeons at North Valley Plastic Surgery will discuss the various implants and options. The implants can be pre-shaped or they can be custom made, especially in instances where there is a growth defect.
What to Expect During the Procedure
The incision is done through the transaxillary (underarm), and occasionally through a direct incision underneath the breast. The implant is then inserted into the created pocket underneath the pectoralis muscles. The incision site is then sutured closed; and, depending on the surgeon, dissolvable and/or Nylon sutures can be used.
What to Expect During the Recovery Period
Post-operatively, the chest will be swollen, and can take up to five weeks to dissipate. Restrictions for the next six weeks include, but are not limited to: heavy lifting, pulling, or pushing. The Nylon sutures will be removed within two weeks.
A compression garment is worn for the next few weeks to keep the implants in place.
The use of bath tubs, Jacuzzis, or anything that allows the body to submerge is not allowed, until clearance from the physician has been provided (usually three weeks after the surgery). Showering is allowed 24 hours after surgery. It is important to pat the operative areas dry and replace the dressings.
