Pectoral implants, otherwise known as pectoral augmentation, have been used for many years in reconstruction surgery after men suffer breast cancer. Pectoral implants are now safely being used to add bulk to the chest for aesthetic reasons. Today men are looking to obtain a particularly well-defined chest, and no matter how much time and focus is placed on this muscle group, it is not quite what they are looking for. There are also hereditary components that can lead to an underdeveloped chest. This is where pectoral implants can help. The implants are made from solid silicone rubber. They are not filled with liquid, so you can rest assured that there is no risk for leakage or breaking.

Self Image

Many people think that body image is only an issue that involves women. This idea could not be further from the truth. Take a look at Hollywood and it is evident everywhere. Billboards of gentlemen with their shirts off can be found in every city and on every major interstate. Movies and commercials always depict the "hero" with incredibly toned arms, abs, and chests. There is pressure on men to look the same way. For actors and models, part of their job is to perfect their bodies, but how can everyday men bulk up to these proportions and still hold down a full-time job and care for a family? On top of the lack of time, sometimes, hereditary components won't allow for this kind of definition. It can leave men feeling discouraged and less attractive. This is why many men are looking into pectoral implants to help get the look they want and the self confidence they desire and deserve.

Your Pectoral Augmentation Surgery

Your pectoral augmentation surgery will be an outpatient surgery in our state-licensed surgery center. An anesthesiologist will administer general (deep sleep) anesthesia and to monitor you throughout your procedure and recovery. The pectoral augmentation surgery will likely take one to two hours.

Dr. Sajan will make an incision in the armpit and create an area for the implant to fit into. Usually, the silicone implant will rest completely behind the pectoral muscle, and the incision will be closed with fine dissolvable sutures. You will receive detailed instructions for your recovery, and you might receive a compression vest to wear. If you are given a compression vest, or an elastic bandage to wear, make sure you use it, as they will reduce swelling and promote healing. You may also be given pain medication to help you manage pain during your recovery. Be sure to follow all of your post-operative instructions as stated in order to heal properly.

The New You

Your recovery will be about 1-2 weeks, however, you will notice the results of your pectoral augmentation immediately. You might also notice soreness at the site and bruising, but this should subside within about a week, and make way for the new, more defined you. The results of your pectoral augmentation will improve in the weeks following your surgery as will your self confidence. If you have any questions or concerns during your recovery, contact Dr. Sajan's office.
