Male patients who would like a fuller, more sculpted look in the chest/pectoral area are good candidates for Pectoral Augmentation with Implants. Through the use of FDA approved implants made of a silicon elastomer, men now have an opportunity to improve their body shape where exercise and an active lifestyle may have fallen short. In addition, patients who have had injuries or congenital deformities will also benefit from this procedure.
Pectoral Augmentation is done utilizing incisions in the underarm area. Dr. Wiener places the implant beneath the chest muscle and positions it based on the patient’s body structure and muscle tone. Small plastic drains may be used to aide in the healing process, and a compression wrap is worn for several days after the procedure. There will be some degree of bruising and swelling. Arnica, a natural anti-inflammatory will be used to control inflammation. Patients can return to work in one week. More strenuous activities should be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks.
