About Pectoral Implant Surgery

Who says that women are the only ones worried about the size of their chest? These days, it is no longer uncommon for men to be conscious about their bodies, especially with their pecs. Going to the gym seems to be the most convenient way to acquire the muscular look men desire.

Unfortunately for some, working out does not bring out the results they have hoped for. Despite their heavy lifting and compound workouts, their chest still remains undefined or small. Whether it may be due to their body types, genetics, or a certain medical condition, exercise alone just does not work well for some.

This is where pectoral implant surgery plays a significant role. Also known as breast implants for men, this cosmetic procedure enhances and tones the chest through the use of solid-based silicone implants. With this surgery, men get to achieve a more well-defined and bulky chest, leading to a boost in self-esteem.

If you’re one of the many having problems with the appearance of your chest, trust expert surgeon Dr. Javaheri to take care of you. With 20 years of experience in the field of cosmetic surgery, he certainly knows what to do. Without a doubt, results will produce a natural look of a lean and well-built chest.

Why Choose Pectoral Implant Surgery

Many men are frustrated with their scrawny appearance, particularly with how flat or sunken their chests may appear. No matter how intense their workout program is, combined with strict dieting, the formation of their pectoral muscles remains unchanged.

If you see yourself belonging to this group of men, we highly recommend you to get a pectoral implant surgery. With so much wasted time and money spent at the gym, you might as well go for something that can really guarantee you satisfactory results.

Even better, prospects for the cosmetic procedure would be the ones who hate going to the gym despite wanting a muscular physique. For these guys, they prefer taking the easiest way with the fastest result, which in this case, is by undergoing pectoral implant surgery.

The surgery is not only limited for aesthetic purposes, as men with chest injuries or congenital defects also undergo the procedure for correction and symmetry.

Are You a Pectoral Implant Surgery Candidate?

Ideal candidates for pectoral implant surgery are men with underdeveloped and poorly defined chests. People with Poland’s Syndrome, a physical defect where one was born without pectoral muscles, can also be good candidates for the operation.  

Almost all men are potential candidates, including you. You just have to be in good physical condition, as well as have the right mindset. Whether you want to emphasize the bulk of your chest, or you need some realignment in your pectoral area, it is important that you consult with your physician first.

What to Expect during Your Pectoral Implant Surgery Consultation

During your initial consultation with Dr. Javaheri, he will listen to your goals and expectations for the pectoral implant surgery. An important part of the consultation is discussing your medical history. You will provide information about your past and present medical conditions, previous surgical operations, possible allergies, and medications you might be currently taking. A physical examination ensues afterwards.

Once Dr. Javaheri approves you as an ideal candidate, he proceeds to measure your chest size for the implants. With so many implants of different shapes and sizes, you will have the benefit to choose for yourself.

You will be oriented on the whole procedure of the pectoral implant surgery. Instructions will be provided, including the do’s and don’ts before and after surgery. You will also be guided on the possible risks you may encounter during and after the operation.

Pectoral Implant Surgery: Procedure Explanation

Pectoral implant surgery normally takes one to two hours on an outpatient basis. General anesthesia can be administered or in some cases, sedation or local anesthesia can be used.

The operation begins with a small incision made on the crease of your underarm. A pocket large enough for your implants to fit is created. Once the implants have been successfully inserted, Dr. Javaheri will check to see if there are adjustments needed to be done. Suturing is then performed to close the incisions.

What to Expect after Your Pectoral Implant Surgery

Right after operation, you will be placed in a recovery area to be monitored. An elastic bandage will be wrapped around your chest to reduce swelling and implant movement. Expect your pectoral muscles to feel tight and sore, as well as feelings of pain and discomfort.

There will be bruises on your pectoral area. Eventually, they will just fade within a week or so.

Before being sent home, Dr. Javaheri will provide a treatment plan for you. You will be advised to get an adequate amount of rest and stay hydrated. He may also give you oral medication to lessen the post-operative pain.

Your Pectoral Implant Surgery Recovery Process

During the first few days after having your pectoral implant surgery, you will experience a bit of pain and discomfort. In most cases, the soreness subsides in a week.

On the second week, you will feel much better with your incisions already healed. By then, you are free to resume your routine activities, including going back to work.

Implant recovery, however, takes a longer period of 6 weeks. To avoid complications and implant damages, you will not be allowed to exercise until you have fully recovered.

You must consider the fact that the recovery process may vary depending on the condition and lifestyle of each patient.  

Possible Pectoral Implant Surgery Complications

By deciding to undergo pectoral implant surgery, there is a possibility that you are putting your health at risk. In any form of operation, complications such as bleeding, bruising, and swelling are unavoidable. In such cases, pain medications are usually given.

Because this procedure involves implants, risks of asymmetry and implant shift sometimes occur. Although uncommon, you might also experience muscle spasms and chest numbness on some instances.

With a qualified and proficient plastic surgeon like Dr. Javaheri however, you have nothing to worry about. By following his instructions and recommendations, you can minimize the possibility of experiencing any of these risks.
