Who Are The Best Candidates?
Even with frequent exercise, men sometimes find that they are still unable to achieve the chest development that they desire. Pectoral implants shape, enlarge, and firm the chest muscles, helping one attain the look they want while still allowing a natural appearance when the pectoral muscles are either flexed or relaxed.

About the Procedure and Recovery Time:
An incision is made high in the armpit and a pocket is made beneath the chest muscle and on top of the ribs A soft, solid silicone implant is cut to specifically fit each patient and inserted into the pocket. A very small dressing is placed under the arms and the patient can typically see the change immediately after surgery.

During the recovery period, the patient is instructed not to lift their arms for two days after surgery. Dressings are then removed followed by a gentle exercise program within 1-2 weeks to enable a full and comfortable range of motion of the arms. Generally within a week or two, physical use of the upper body muscles may be resumed and within one month, full pectoral muscular activity may be recommenced.

Surgical risks may include: infection, bleeding, asymmetry, scarring, and muscle and/or nerve damage.

Pectoral Implants for Congenital and Physical Defects:
Spina Bifida (Spina Bifida Association of America) is a genetic birth deformity that can alter the bone and musculature of the body. While pectoral implants are not a cure for these ailments, they can provide anatomical balance, when needed, in less serious cases. Depending on the extent of the defect, pec implants can help. Our doctors are among the leading surgeons in helping people with these ailments achieve anatomical balance through the use of pec implants.

Pectus Carinatum (UK Pectus Excavatum & Pectus Carinatum Information Site) is a condition whereby bone development surrounding the thoracic cavity often leaves the person with a protruding sternum, giving the appearance of a 'pigeon chest', a poor descriptor, but one commonly used. There are varying degrees of the birth defect, but in minor cases, pec implants can be used to offset the protrusion, masking the bone defect, and yielding a more normal appearing chest. Other musculoskeletal conditions associated with this defect are Marfan's Syndrome (Nation al Marfan Foundation), and Poland's Syndrome.

Pectus Excavatum (UK Pectus Excavatum & Pectus Carinatum Information Site) is a bone affliction from a birth defect, whereby the ribs that fuse with the Sternum, are concave, leaving the person with a sunken chest. There are varying degrees of the birth defect, but in minor cases, pec implants can be used to offset the condition, masking the bone defect, and yielding a more normal appearing chest. Other musculoskeletal associated with this defect are Marfan's Syndrome (National Marfan Foundation), and Poland's Syndrome.

Important Questions to Ask Before Choosing your Surgeon:
So you've finally decided to get pec implants. You've probably been thinking about it for some time. The only thing to do now… is to find the right surgeon who can assure you'll receive the best success without any problems.

To begin, it's EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to realize that very few surgeons perform pectoral implants. The fact is… it's a very, very unique procedure and few perform it on A REGULAR BASIS.

Some surgeons will say they perform pec implants. Some might even say they do them regularly. But, the key is to find someone fully qualified, that performs the procedure AT LEAST 4-5 TIMES PER MONTH. That means, the surgeon you choose, should average approximately one every week.

Why is this SO IMPORTANT?

Because pectoral augmentation is a unique operation that requires aesthetic skill… more so, than most people realize. Here's why—

1) Due to the stress placed on the pectoral muscles during common, everyday activities such as lifting, or arm extension, implants placed in this area are usually subjected to intensive movement. Thus, the likelihood of an implant shifting or moving after surgery is a concern.

Needless to say, having one's right side pec muscle look dramatically different than the left, due to an implant shift, won't generally result in the aesthetic 'look' one usually desires.

The bottom line, is that it's critical to have the expertise—gained from performing many pec implant procedures—to successfully pick the proper area of the muscle within the fascia, the implant pocket, so that the pec implant is assured of not shifting out of place… and over time, it eventually becomes an integral part of the muscle. This knowledge is ONLY GAINED by performing this procedure regularly.

2) Another extremely important consideration—one that every patient needs to be aware of— is the primary reason WHY they're having the surgery even performed… the final results. How they'll look AFTER the operation is completed.

Again, you should realize that pec implants are solid, silicone prosthetic devices. So, they must usually be carved, or shaped, before insertion. So, having the expertise to properly shape the implant, a process where the surgeon artfully sculpts the solid silicone device with a scalpel before insertion, so it appears natural yet enhancing, for each individual body type, or physical defect, is also critical.

There's nothing more eye-catching after surgery, than a poorly sculpted pec implant… one that somehow seems oddly fit for the individual's body type.

Our surgeon's artistic abilities are evident in most everything they do. Their aesthetic style in sculpting the pec implants for each individual has been gained from years of expertise, only developed by having done so many procedures. They are extremely adept at performing pec implants on people with birth/genetic and physical defects such as Pectus Excavatum and Pectus Carinatum, helping them achieve completely natural appearances after their corrective procedure by another surgeon. In most cases our surgeons can help in the reconstructive aspects of their affliction with pec implants.


  1. How many pec implants did the surgeon you're considering do last month? How many last week? How many in the last three months? Just remember, pec implant procedures require that the surgeon isn't merely a 'visitor' to this type of surgery...but, someone who is a 'regular'.
  2. Ask the surgeon if you can speak with his most recent few pec implant patients. Any surgeons who perform this procedure regularly won't have a problem letting you speak with their former patients.
  3. Ask him if he's ever had any complications from implant shifting, or infection. A poor decision, based on cost, or lack of experience can come back to haunt you.
