Male Pec Implants

Pectoral Augmentation

Male Chest Implants

Men who are seeking bulky pectoral muscles and who haven’t
had success with their workout routines may choose to have
chest implant surgery, which uses solid silicone implants to
enlarge the look of chest (pectoral) muscles.

It’s important to note that while pectoral, or “pec” implants
can improve the bulk of muscles, they aren’t going to add
any muscle definition. In other words, you won’t be able
to see the muscle fibers through the skin. For that type
of definition, you will need to find the appropriate workout.

The male chest implant is made of soft, durable silicone, and will be inserted under your pectoral muscles.


What Surgery Is Right for Your Body Type?


Pre-Surgery Preparation for Male Chest Implants

Your surgeon may recommend that you don’t do any strenuous workouts for at least 1-2 weeks before your surgery. If you continue working, you may feel more discomfort following the surgery.

The Pectoral Augmentation Procedure

Your will have general anesthesia or heavy sedation for this surgery.
Before your surgery, your surgeon will measure your chest to determine the size of the solid silicone implant to use. A small incision will be made under your armpit and a cavity will be formed under your pectoral muscle, where the implant will be inserted. 

The Recovery Period for Male Chest Implants
You will not have to stay overnight in the hospital following your surgery. Within a few days, your dressings will be removed. You will be instructed not to do any heavy lifting or exercise for at least a month.

Potential Risks and Side Effects of Male Chest Implant Surgery

    • Displacement of implants can occur. Mild displacement isn’t bothersome, but significant displacement requires corrective surgery.
    • Infection. This can develop into a very serious complication. Infections generally emerge within a couple of months after surgery. Implants may have to be removed and IV antibiotics administered, which may require hospitalization. A new implant can be inserted after a six-month recovery period.
    • Hematoma. This is the gathering of blood around the implant, which is caused by bleeding. Hematomas that are medium-sized or large may require surgery for removal.  
    • Seroma. Body fluid that collects around your implants is called a seroma. Seromas are typically seen right after a surgical procedure. Generally, the body absorbs the excess fluid. When a seroma persists, it may have to be drained or surgically removed.
    • Numbness in the inner upper arm. When nerves are affected, stretched or cauterized during surgery, numbness may occur. The feeling may return in a few months;  if it doesn’t, the numbness may be permanent.

    Removal of Male Chest Implants

    In some cases, a patient will decide to have chest implants removed due to complications that have emerged as a result of implant surgery or for other reasons that aren’t health-related. The removal procedure is fairly straightforward and is done through the initial incision. The recovery period of implant removal is faster than for the initial surgery.

    Points To Remember About Pectoral Augmentation

    It is essential for you to understand that pectoral implants are meant to increase chest muscle bulk – they do not make a difference in muscle definition. 
    Your recovery period will end sooner if you avoid upper body exercise for 1-2 weeks prior to your surgery.

    As with any surgery, there is the potential for complications and side effects as a result of pectoral augmentation. But in general, this procedure is considered quite safe and the results look very natural. 

    You cannot repair congenital chest wall deformities with pectoral augmentation. Custom-made implants are usually required to fix these problems.
