These implants are designed specifically for men and mimic well developed pectoral muscles. Male pectoral implants are natural-looking and made of silicone.

More Information about Male Pectoral Implants – By Dr. Mofid

Male pectoral implants are performed to enhance the size and shape of the male chest. These procedures are typically performed using shaped silicone implants placed endoscopically through small incisions within the axilla or underarm. These surgeries typically take 1-1/2 hours to perform and are done under general anesthesia as outpatient procedures.

Good candidates for this procedure include men with chest wall asymmetries, minor pectus excavatum, and hypoplasia or other causes of either unilateral or bilateral chest hypoplasia. Good candidates for this procedure include men that would like to achieve the appearance of greater muscle pectoral bulk of their chest. The most common reasons that patients choose to have male pectoral implants performed include the inability to achieve the appearance of a sculpted chest despite efforts attained through exercise.

During a typical recovery following male pectoral implant surgery, moderate exercise is resumed 2 weeks following surgery and upper body exercises may be resumed approximately 6 weeks following surgery.
