Pectoral implants is a kind of cosmetic surgery for men which improves the size and shape of a man’s chest. Many of our abroad patients who come to get chest implants refer to unsuccessful results through gym and workout. In other cases, this area of the body has not developed correctly (Poland’s syndrome) or an accident has damaged the area.
Either case, men wanting pec implants need to feel satisfied with their own look and want to remedy that. Any of these conditions will be treated thanks to chest implants, which achieve results impossible to reach with any other treatment.
The operation consists of placing a specially designed implant under the chest muscle. The manufactured implants are made of cohesive silicone and the volumes available are 180-240-300 cc. In some cases the implant can be also custom made, tailored to each patient’s needs.
Pec implants are placed under general anesthesia through a small incision in the armpit, absolutely invisible.
The implant is completely covered by the muscle, so it is not visible. The implant pushes the muscle about 2.5 cm. What you see is the muscle. The volume to place depends entirely on the available space under the muscle. The projection of the implant, however, is about the same regardless the volume.
If you have gynecomastia (excess of breast tissue or fat), this can be treated at the same time.
There are some burning sensation, tightness or slight pain in the area for a few days. Press exercises and muscular activity is forbidden for two months. Generally speaking, the pec implants surgery is an operation with fast recovery and immediate results.
After 6 weeks there is no rstrictions and you can train and work ou as usual.

Pectoral implants are safe and durable but like all implants may eventually require replacement if wear and tear of the implant shell occurs.
The operation is relatively simple and is performed through a small incision in the armpit. In 4 or 5 days you can drive but you must avoid physical work and exercise with the pectorals for 6 weeks.
Yes, after pectoral implant surgery, scars will be left in the treated area. However, these scars are usually minimal and can be concealed with clothing. The incisions are strategically placed in the natural folds of the body (armpit) and are made with careful suturing techniques to minimize the appearance of scars. In addition, over time, these scars tend to fade and become less visible.
Yes, pectoral augmentation surgery can be an option for transsexual men who wish to enhance the appearance of their chest and achieve a more masculine appearance. However, it is important that each patient is evaluated individually and the most appropriate treatment plan for their specific case is discussed. Pectoral augmentation surgery for transgender men is often performed as part of a larger gender reassignment process, and it is important that patients have realistic expectations about the results and the potential risks and complications associated with the surgery.
Of course! With modern plastic surgery techniques and the right implants, it is possible to achieve very natural and realistic results with a pectoral augmentation. The key is to work closely with the patient to determine the appropriate size and shape of the implants, and to place them in a way that suits the patient’s proportions and physical characteristics. As a plastic surgeon, my goal is always to achieve results that are harmonious and balanced with the patient’s body, which includes making sure the implants look as natural as possible.
The placement of pectoral implants in men generally does not affect muscle function or the ability to exercise. However, it is important that patients follow postoperative instructions carefully and avoid strenuous exercise for the first few weeks after surgery to allow the implants to settle properly. After recovery, patients can return to their normal physical activities without any restrictions. In addition, it is important to note that implants do not improve muscle strength and that it is recommended to continue a regular and healthy exercise regimen to maintain good physical and mental health.
