Pectoral Implants – Definition with Natural Results
Some body types do not develop chest muscle tone and definition as easily as others, and, despite regular exercise, some men may find they are unable to achieve their desired look through exercise and nutrition alone. Pectoral implants are a solution to build definition and the illusion of muscle in the pectoral area.
This procedure is performed in one of our private cosmetic surgery hospitals by our highly experienced surgeon Dr Yannis Alexandrides. The procedure is designed to increase chest size and shape by inserting solid silicone pectoral implants under the real muscle, giving you a natural looking, defined chest.
We pride ourselves on our after-care. We offer a comprehensive and extensive post-operative care programme, which includes detailed post-operative instructions and follow-up appointments with your surgeon at your 111 Harley St. clinic to ensure a speedy recovery, all at no additional cost.
The decision to have a cosmetic surgery is a very personal one and it is vital that you get good advice, tailored to your individual circumstances, so that you can make a well-informed decision. If it is something you are considering, please come in for a consultation and we can discuss the procedure with you.
Our friendly and approachable patient care co-ordinators, along with the specialist surgeon with whom we work, will aim to answer all your questions and provide you with credible and informative advice tailored to your individual needs.
Pectoral Implants take approximately two hours, depending on the extent of work required.
The method of inserting and positioning the implant will depend on your preferences, anatomy and your surgeon’s recommendation. Normally the incisions are placed under the armpits and will be closed with sutures. Implants are placed underneath the muscle and positioned to look as natural as possible for the optimal cosmetic effect.
After surgery, you will likely experience some fluid drainage from the incisions. Small drainage tubes will be inserted beneath the skin to prevent fluid buildup. They will usually be removed when the fluid production gets less. There may be a drip in your arm to keep you hydrated after surgery. As soon as you can have replenished your hydration levels, it will be removed. Some people return to work after two weeks, while others take three or four weeks to rest and recuperate. The stitches will be removed within 1-2 weeks after surgery, depending on your healing and rate of recovery.
Please note that in terms of results and expectations, there are numerous variables with every patient, each surgery and every recovery and healing period.
