Creating enlargement and definition

Enlargement of the male chest is most commonly done through lifting weights and subsequent muscle enlargement. Strenuous physical exertion and protein supplements can build muscle, often times very impressively. Under ordinary circumstances, most people can create mild to moderate pectoral enlargement that they will find satisfactory. For those seeking substantial chest definition, chest enlargement in the shortest period of time, or if one suffers from developmental pectoral or sternal deformities, exercise alone will not produce a desired result.

Significant pectoral enlargement and definition can most rapidly be achieved through a male pectoral implant. While breast implants in women are far more commonly performed, male pectoral implants are an equally satisfying procedure. Being essentially the same operation as that of breast augmentation (albeit with a different implant shape and texture), a well placed implant can create a subtle to dramatic change in the appearance of the pectoral area.

The ideal patient for male pectoral implant surgery

Who is an ideal patient for male pectoral implants?

All patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with male pectoral implants

We do not treat patients below the age of 18 years of age.

Healing is better if patients refrain from or quit smoking.

The male pectoral implants procedure is performed purely for cosmetic purposes, to help improve one’s image and self-esteem.

An ideal patient for male pectoral implants are men who are in good physical shape, have realistic expectations and are unhappy with their chest and desire a more muscular appearance. Candidates include:

  1. Men who have an undeveloped chest and are unable to achieve a larger or more defined chest regardless of how much exercise is performed.
  2. Men with a sunken chest (pectus deformity)
  3. Men with an absent pectoral muscle (Poland’s Syndrome)

The male pectoral implants consultation

The consultation begins by having an opportunity to discuss your ideas, concerns and expectations about the procedure with your surgeon, and ask any relevant questions you may have.

Your male pectoral implants surgeon will:

  1. Take a focused history and examine you
  2. Explain the procedure
  3. Take your needs and preferences into account when deciding on the most appropriate treatment option for you

A male pectoral implants surgeon can be either from a plastic surgery or general surgery background (a declared specialist interest in breast surgery). Both specialities are fully trained to perform male pectoral implants.

The male pectoral implants procedure

The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, and takes about two hours.

At the beginning, an incision of about 3cm is made in the axilla, and a tissue pocket is made between the pectoralis major muscle and the rib cage. This is the area into which the implant will be placed. The incision in the axilla is important because scars on the chest wall itself will be quite visible.

The operation uses a custom silicone implant that is positioned in the subpectoral pocket, providing a natural look and feel to the pectoral muscles. Fine stitches are used to create a multilayer closure on the skin and muscles, securing the implant in place with minimal scars. A compression garment is then applied to provide comfort and reduce swelling.

male pectoral implantsAfter the procedure, there will be some discomfort because of the muscle dissection, which will be managed by over the counter pain medication. You will be able to go home the same day and medical team team will telephone you the next morning to check up on you.

During recovery it is most important to smoking. Smoking reduces th oxyfen supply to tissues and increases the risk of wound breakdown and infection following male pectoral implant surgery. You will be reviewed at regular points during the weeks following the surgery. This ensures your recovery is optimised to get the most pleasing aesthetic results.

For the first week you will need to limit your physical activity, particularly the use of your arms. The incision sites will heal within 2 weeks, but the area where the pectoral implants were placed will take about 6 weeks to heal. It is vital to have realistic expectations. After surgery, the recovery instructions provided by your surgeon should be followed carefully. 

MALE PECTORAL IMPLANTS FAQS

Am I an ideal candidate for male pectoral implants?

A good candidate must have good overall health and realistic expectations of the results they can achieve. You could:

  1. Have an undeveloped chest and are unable to achieve a larger or more defined chest with diet and exercise alone.
  2. Have a sunken chest (pectus deformity)
  3. Have an absent pectoral muscle (Poland’s Syndrome)

How is the male pectoral implants performed?

An incision of about 3cm is made in the axilla, and a tissue pocket is made between the pectoralis major muscle and the rib cage. A custom silicone implant is placed in the pocket, providing a natural look and feel to the pectoral muscles. Fine stitches are then used to create a closure on the skin and muscles to keep the implants in place.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia, and takes about 2 hours for completion.

What is the recovery period like?

After the procedure, there will be some discomfort because of the muscle dissection and you can take pain medication to ease it. You should limit your physical activity for the first week to ensure speedy recovery. It may take up to 6 weeks for the area where the pectoral implants were placed to heal completely.

Will I have to wear a compression garment?

A compression garment is then applied to provide comfort and reduce swelling, which you will have to wear for the first few weeks.

Will I have scars after the surgery?

The incisions are made in the natural creases of your skin and therefore scarring is minimal, which will heal over time.

What are the risks associated with male pectoral implants?

The most common risks include surgical infection, bleeding and scarring. Other possible complications can be discussed during your consultation.

If I am unhappy with the results, when can I have my revision surgery?

It is ideally recommended not to have any further work done for 12-18 months so that favorable outcome can be achieved after a revision surgery. However, the waiting period between your first and revision surgery can be carefully decided by you and your surgeon by looking at the result that was achieved and your expectation.

Can I get fat transfer instead of implants?

No. Fat transfer works well for small areas, but not larger areas.

All I can say is absolutely brilliant! This is the first time I've ever had cosmetic surgery so you can imagine how nervous I was. Even though it was a small procedure (umbilicoplasty with scar removal) Mr Tillo and the team made me feel extremely relaxed and calm to the point where I actually enjoyed my procedure! The aftercare is also amazing. Any queries I may have I contact the team and I almost instantly get a reply. I highly recommend the surgery!read more

My first consultation was an excellent experience. My consultant Dr. Omar Tillo was extremely approachable and attentive to what I had to say and want. He knew exactly what I wanted and I immediately knew he was the man for the job. The day came for my procedure and 6 hours later, hey presto....the rest is history! Miraculous recovery, excellent before, during and aftercare service. Thank you Centre for Surgery for everything. Without a doubt I totally recommend choosing them for a better you.read more

Have thought about labiaplasty surgery since having the twins, I finally took the plunge and booked in to see a consultant plastic surgeon. I didn't realise that the surgery was performed as an outpatient, so meant I could go home the same day! I was surprised by how little pain there was afterwards. They gave me a 7 day course of antibiotics to take as a precaution, but I don't think I needed them. Very pleased with the result and glad that Mr Sinha was my surgeon.read more

The ongoing middle age spread battle meant I cheated, and had liposuction at CoS. The doctor (Perrone) was a great listener and understood my reservations. We figured out my actual needs, he listened to my preferences and the lipo was a real success. Big thumbs up to Dr P and especially Nikesh for his regular phonecalls to check how I was doing. Really appreciate the post op care, thanks.read more

I just wanted to describe my experience after seeing Mr Tsounis for rhinoplasty. I found it reassuring that he's a specialist (only performs nose reshaping). The swelling has taken a little while to settle, but results are really showing and the natural look is just what i wanted. Many thanks to you and your excellent team.read more

At first I was very worried about going ahead with my surgery as any surgery has its risks and I had never gone outside of the NHS. However, after receiving a phone call from them I was instantly at ease as Gregory; the gentleman I spoke with, had previously undergone the same surgery. At first I wasn’t very open to talking about it as I found it very embarrassing, so to hear that someone was once in my shoes gave me the confidence to talk about it. Prior to the operation the Surgeon and I went over all of the details of my operation several times and I was very happy that they knew exactly what they were doing. I am extremely happy with the result of my Gynaecomastia treatment and so far I have minimal scarring. I’d like to thank the team for their aftercare service as I have had communication from their team every other day to ensure that my recovery was as smooth as possible and that I had everything I needed. Overall, a very professional and supportive team with expert surgeons. Highly recommend.read more

From day one my experience with Centre for Surgery and all the staff has been fantastic, I literally could not fault them. On the day of surgery I was very nervous but there was a lovely lady their who was looking after me (Kat) anaesthetist was friendly and very quick, my partner was able to stay with me until I got taken in for surgery, although I don't remember him being their, was sedated but talking, no memory of this at all, felt as though I went to sleep and woke up after it was all over. Professor Alberto who done my surgery done an amazing job, so so happy. Michelle made all my appointments, was always available when I had questions to ask and overall a lovely lady. Everyone made me feel comfortable, would highly recommend.read more

If you are looking for precision plastic surgery with a personalised service - look no further than centre for surgery.

I had a consultation with Dr Alam for hair transplant surgery and found him to be open and honest about all aspects of the procedure. I had FUE with 1500 grafts and although it is quite early, the results are just as I hoped for. The procedure was done under local anaesthetic and was virtually pain-free. I am surprised about the lack of swelling and I would highly recommend Dr Alam for hair restoration surgery.read more
