Contact Us! Blog News Search our site

Pectoral implants for men. Even though they put themselves through excessive workouts, some men find it difficult to develop their pectoral muscles in the way that they desire. In some other cases, due to injuries or growth defects affecting the pectoral muscles, some men may be complete unsatisfied with the appearance of their chest. Thankfully, plastic surgeons have developed a technique which gives a bulkier appearance to the upper body, helping men improve their overall appearance in a short period of time.

Pectoral implants for men work by placing silicone material underneath the muscles of the chest, adding to the projection and bulk of these muscles. They are used to sculpt the chest are and to give it proper definition, resulting in a completely natural appearance.

The implants come in all different shapes and sizes, designed specifically for your needs. However, the size of the implant will be limited to the size of the client’s own musculature since it most appropriately cover the muscle to achieve the best results.

Whenever you come to the decision of submitting yourself to any type of plastic surgery, you always need to keep in mind that no procedure will be able to provide a ‘perfect’ aspect to your body. The objective of a cosmetic treatment is to achieve an enhancement in your features, not to provide an ‘ideal’. This can help your boost your self-confidence and assurance, making you feel better with the way you look while at the same time keeping realistic and down-to-earth expectations. This is one of the core values we have here at Better Looks; we want our clients to be completely satisfied with the results of their surgery and to heighten their self-esteem.

This surgery is performed under general anesthesia and the whole process usually takes around 1 to 2 hours, depending on the extent of the procedure.

Your doctor will make the incisions in the area of the armpit; it is not very large, up to 2 to 3 inches in length.

This will create a pocket between the two chest wall muscles (the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor). The implants are then placed inside this space, underneath the muscle and accommodated until they are arranged into the desired position. This will give the chest a natural-looking enhancement and will look like a well defined pectoral muscle. Once the yearned for results are achieved, your surgeon will stitch up the incisions.

Right after the procedure it is natural for you to experience some swelling and bruising, as well as some discomfort. However, this should last only a few days and can be easily controlled with prescriptions from your doctor. During this period, you must make sure you sleep with your upper torso elevated with at least 2 pillows.

The length of your recovery period is hard to predict since the ability to heal varies from person to person. However, in most cases patients are able to return to work around 5 to 7 days, if their work implies a lot of sitting and little lifting. For those men whose jobs imply physical labor, they will have to stay home for at least 3 weeks.

It is recommended for you to avoid any exercise during a period of 3 to 6 weeks since increase of the blood flow towards your chest can affect your sutures and the overall results of the procedure. Your weight lifting routine will also have to be postponed until you have healed completely.

Contact Us!The results of this treatment will become evident immediately after the surgery and you will be able to enjoy your new look straight away.


As with any type of cosmetic surgery, complications are unusual, but they sometimes do happen. However, they are usually minor and can be reduced by precisely following your doctor’s directions before and after the procedure.

In extremely rare cases, patients can bleed post-operatively and second surgery will be needed to control and drain the blood. Infection is also uncommon, but if it occurs, then it is treated with antibiotics. There is also the possibility for an implant to shift from its intended position and this will have to be corrected with another operation. Seroma and hematoma are also risks which may accompany this procedure, but keep in mind that they do not happen very often.

Make sure to ask your Better Looks surgeon concerning any risks you might have to face when undertaking this surgery. However, you must keep in mind that our certified group of doctors works full-time to prevent such scenarios from happening, since we value the health of our patients above anything else.
