Men who don’t have definition and bulk of the pectoral muscles feel that they are missing on what is perceived as the masculine side of a man.
Unfortunately too many men, who are physically fit, very active and who spend countless hours in the gym just can’t increase the definition and mass of their chest. Some men are born with no muscle on the chest wall, others have the muscle that does not respond to exercise and others have a genetic condition that precludes them from having any muscular development in that body area.
If you or you know someone who cannot attain the muscular chest, there is a solution to this problem.
The solution is called pectoral implants. Pectoral implants are made from cohesive or solid silicone, the density of which is very similar to the natural muscles of the chest. When these implants are placed scarlessly on the chest wall, it is virtually impossible for anyone to guess that these are implants and not real muscle. Who is a candidate for the pectoral implants?
Anyone who can’t attain the definition or the size of the chest muscle and otherwise is a healthy individual.
How large should my implants be?
Even though there are different sizes used in the pectoral implants, Dr. Grossman can order a custom implant made just for you, so that you know you will be satisfied.
How is the surgery performed?
The procedure is usually performed under twilight anesthesia in our Joint Commission Accredited Facility, this way you will have an easy recovery without nausea or vomiting that are typically associated with general anesthesia.
Dr. Grossman will use one of your naturally occurring wrinkles in the arm pit as the access point through which the implants will be introduced. Using the natural wrinkle will significantly reduce your chances of having visible scars.
The surgery time is approximately 90 to 120 minutes. In Dr. Grossmans’ proprietary approach, no drain tubes are needed and no restraining garments are necessary, so that the majority of our patients can return to a desk job in just 1 to 3 days. If your job is of physical nature, you may require more time before resuming normal activities.
All the sutures are placed internally, so nothing needs to be removed after the surgery.
Returning to the gym is very individual, some men can be on the tread mill in a week and others may have to wait longer.
Full energy work outs can be resumed by most patients three weeks after surgery.
After all is said and done, you should have the muscle bulk and definition you have always wanted.
