Pectoral implants can enhance the shape, size, and firmness of your chest muscles. They can provide the look you want while still allowing a natural appearance, even when the pectoral muscles are flexed.
The flexible, soft, solid implants will feel like a toned, well-developed pectoral muscle.
Are Pectoral Implants Right For You?
Pectoral augmentation is performed fora few differeent reasons. Common indications include:
- Sunken chest
- Torn pectoral muscle
- Poland syndrome
- Desire for larger chest muscle contour
How the Surgery Works
The incision to insert the implants is usually made along the natural fold of the armpit, although there are other techniques depending on the situation.
The pectoral implants are placed in a pocket beneath the pectoralis major, but above the pectoralis minor muscles. This manner of placement hides the implant under existing muscle tissue and provides a comfortable, natural looking result.
Once the incision is made, Dr. Lambert will form a pocket between the chest muscles and carefully insert and position the implant in the pocket. The incisions will be closed with sutures or surgical adhesive and bandages will be applied.
After Pectoral Augmentation Surgery
You may need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks to reduce swelling and provide comfort and support as you heal. Bandages and sutures will be removed in one to two weeks. Your scars will be hidden and will fade considerably over time.
