Male Pectoral Implants

Pectoral Implants – Definition with Natural Results

Male pectoral implants offer a surgical solution for those who are concerned with the shape, size or definition of the chest and pec area.

Some men may find that they’re struggling to attain their muscular ideals with exercise and diet alone or may suffer from a congenital deformity resulting in a lack of confidence in appearance.

Pectoral implants can enhance the chest area by creating a more symmetrical, defined and muscular appearance.

Sometimes the surgery may be combined with liposuction if the patient has excess fat in the area.

What does the procedure involve?

The surgical process begins with a thorough consultation in which we will discuss your medical history, the procedure and method itself, and the results you’re hoping to achieve. The procedure requires general anaesthesia. The method of inserting and positioning the implant will depend on your preferences, anatomy and your surgeon’s recommendation.

Usually, the incision is under the armpits. Saline implants will be inserted underneath the muscle and positioned to look as natural as possible for optimal cosmetic effect. The shape and size of the implants may vary on each side to enhance proportions and make the appearance of the chest more symmetrical.

111 Harley St. has performed hundreds of these procedures. Our surgical coordinators have collated past patients questions and they have answered them for you to read below. The consultation is with your surgeon and costs £200, this cost is non-refundable but is redeemable against the cost of surgery. The price quoted to you after your consultation is an all-inclusive price that includes all the pre and post operative appointments.

Male Pectoral Implant FAQ

Are male pectoral implants suitable for me?

You may consider opting for male pectoral implants if you’re unhappy with the appearance of your chest. Such reasons may include asymmetry, lack of definition or size of muscles, or congenital disabilities such as Poland Syndrome which causes a concaved appearance to the chest (usually on one side).

When can results be seen and are they permanent?

The results of the surgery will be permanent, and like breast implants, they may need replacing every ten years subject to their durability and longevity.

How long is recovery?

The recovery rate varies but is usually around six weeks. During this time, you should avoid lifting heavy objects or exercising.
Most patients take around two weeks off work to recover from the operation.
You may be required to wear a supportive garment or bandage for around a week after your surgery.
*Please note that this is an indicated recovery time and healing time are unique to each individual. Results and recovery rates vary from patient to patient. They are dependent on a number of factors including expectations, genetics, lifestyle, the extent of surgery, type of surgery, medical history etc.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes approximately 1-2 hours, depending on the extent of the surgery.

Will there be scarring?

Scarring will be minimal, and the incisions will be closed with stitches, and removed within one to two weeks after surgery. Scarring will be concealed within the armpit so will be virtually undetectable.

Will the pectoral implants look like breast implants?

No. Pec implants come in many shapes and sizes and customised to the patient’s desires. While both pectoral implants and breast implants are made of silicone, the material used differs, and they are less prone to leaking or tearing.
They’re slightly firmer (to replicate muscle rather than tissue and fat) and made to allow for higher positioning on the chest area. In contrast, breast implants will usually ‘drop and fluff’ to resemble a natural teardrop shape.

Side effects and risks

You may experience bruising, swelling and discomfort which should subside within three weeks, though the rate of recovery varies from patient to patient. Other possible complications might include:
• Asymmetry
• Moving or displacement of implants
• Capsular contracture
• Infection
• Bleeding
