For many men, the ideal male form can be difficult to nearly impossible to achieve through diet and exercise. The male physique and its muscular, sculpted contours are prominent wherever you look these days. The lean, sculpted male contour featured in movies and television is not easily attained. For some men, diet and exercise are not enough to achieve the muscular contour they desire. This is especially true for the pectoral region. Undefined pecs can contribute to feelings of insecurity in many men. For these men, as well as men who have birth defects or have suffered from physical traumas, pec implants can be an excellent way to improve and enhance the appearance of the pectoral region. Through pec implants, men can achieve defined, muscular contours and results that look and feel natural.
Candidates for Pec Implants Surgery
Ideal candidates for pec implants are men who are unhappy with the appearance of their pectoral region, are in good health, and have realistic expectations. Pec implants may be used to increase fullness in an underdeveloped chest region resulting from a birth defect, injury, and for those who do not achieve the muscular, toned appearance they want through diet and exercise alone. To determine if you are an ideal candidate for pec implants, please schedule a personal and confidential consultation with San Francisco plastic surgeon Albert Chow today.
Pec Implants Surgery
For the majority of our patients in San Francisco pec implants surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. Pec implants surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and usually takes one to two hours to complete. During surgery an incision is made in the crease of the armpit, a pocket is then created under each pectoral muscle in which the pec implant will be placed. The pec implants surgery is tailored to your unique contours. Once the implants have been placed, the incision is closed with sutures. Patients may experience mild discomfort for the first day or two after surgery. Most patients will be able to resume most every day activities within two weeks of undergoing pec implants surgery.
