Who is an Ideal Candidate for Pectoral Implants?
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 silicone 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.
How is a Chest Implant Procedure Performed?
Pectoral Augmentation is done utilizing incisions in the underarm area. Dr. Wiener places the implant beneath the chest muscle and positions are based on the patient’s body structure and muscle tone. Small plastic drains may be used to aid in the healing process, and a compression wrap is worn for several days after the procedure.
What Our Patients Have to Say
“Just so everyone knows I had 3 major surgeries at once…Pectoral (Pec) implants, Tummy tuck with abdominal stitching, & liposuction. The Aftercare was great as well…..After surgery, I woke up with No pain at all. During the whole healing process, I still was not in any real pain, just a little sore. In fact, I was up walking that very night! I followed all their instructions and everything came out very well. They were able to provide a rehabilitation hospital facility that took excellent care of me for the first night or however long u choose to stay. I only needed to stay overnight. I healed very well and I believe in my heart was because it was good safe plastic surgery.”
