Male chest implants, or male chest enlargements, is a procedure which can be used to give a more masculine appearance by creating a prominent and firm chest. The procedure is often popular amongst men who are unable to develop chest muscles due to certain muscular disorders.
The pectoral implant procedure is performed by inserting an implant through a small incision made in the natural skin crease under the chest or through the armpit. The surgeon makes a pocket under the chest muscle to place the implant, creating the appearance of a more defined and masculine physique as desired, minimizing the need for consistent body building, exercise or medication.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic, usually taking around an hour to perform, leaving amazing results with minimal scarring. Most patients require a week or 2 off work to recover with gradual return to normal physical activities. A compression garment will be required during this recovery period to assist with the healing process.
Can I have the procedure if I suffer from Poland’s Syndrome or have never developed muscle on my chest wall?
Yes, this procedure is not only cosmetic but reconstructive. The procedure will provide definition.
How long will I need to stay in hospital?
This procedure can be carried out as a day case or an overnight stay, your surgeon will discuss the best option for you after assessing your medical history.
Will I have swelling?
You can expect swelling for up to 6weeks following the procedure this will dramatically subside in the first 2 weeks. Swelling may differ from left to right and you must treat them as two separate procedures.
When can I go on holiday?
You can fly short hall after 2 weeks and long haul after 4 but you will be unable to sunbath or go in the pool or sea until 6 weeks, so it is advised to wait until you are 6 weeks prior to arranging a holiday abroad.
