Chest Implants Gaining Popularity Among Men
Posted October 22, 2014 in Pec Augmentation, Pectoral Implants
Breast Implants have long been a cosmetic procedure primarily sought by women who want to achieve rounder, fuller or shapelier breasts. Now men are signing up, but for slightly different reasons. Male pectoral implants, or chest implants, have been gaining momentum in the plastic surgery industry.
It does take a lot of work to achieve that “bulked up” look that many men crave. For men who don’t have hours a day to spend at the gym, pectoral implants offer an appealing substitute. As a man, you can only do so many reps on the “peck deck” before you realize that your DNA is prohibiting you from achieving the bodybuilder’s physique you long for.
Even men who do work out and eat the right foods can have a tough time getting those rock, hard chest muscles. It depends on genetics. What can pectoral implants do for men who want to get a bulkier, manlier chest?
Will pectoral implants look good?
Chest implants can help men get a more defined chest. If you want to see the outlines of your pectorals, then a pectoral implant does have its place. When men consider chest implants, many have a misconception that it will look too much like breast implants. However, male implants are different both in the way they are delivered and in texture.
Dr. Humberto Palladino offers cutting-edge technology that allows a man to see what the peck implants will look like before going through with it. The Vectra 3D system offers a preview of the peck implants so that a guy can decide whether to go through with it or not.
If you like the “Superman Physique” then you will love the chest implants!
What can I expect with a peck implant procedure?
The pectoral implants are installed through very small incisions along the armpit, which after they heal will be barely visible. The surgery will be performed by general anesthesia, so you will not feel any pain during surgery. After you wake up, you will spend a couple of hours in recovery and then your chest will be sore for a few days. It may take a few weeks before your pectoral and chest heal entirely, so expect to take some time off from work and avoid any heaving lifting. Do not smoke before surgery for at least two weeks, and especially right after surgery, as this can cause blood clots, strokes and poor circulation.
