Male Pectoral Implants in San Diego
What are Male Pectoral Implants?
Male pectoral implants are designed specifically for men and mimic well-developed pectoral muscles. Male pectoral implants are natural-looking and made of silicone. The implants are carefully and precisely placed in the chest to ensure your muscle function remains the same so that you can continue to exercise and perform your normal activities as usual. The implants should feel firm to the touch as they are not filled like breast implants used for breast augmentation.

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.
Am I a Good Candidate for the Procedure?
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.
