Pectoral Augmentation in Sugar Land – Houston TX
Pectoral Implants, also known as pectoral augmentation, male chest enhancement or pec implants
Male chest enhancement, known as “pec” implants, is now more popular than ever. Even with frequent exercise, some men find that they are unable to achieve the chest definition that they desire. Pectoral implant surgery is a method for improving chest contour. This procedure has become a prevalent option, particularly for men who are athletic or go to the gym and want to be able to show off their more sculpted, masculine chests. An increasing numbers of men are choosing to enhance their physique, body symmetry, and self-image with pectoral implants. This procedure can be performed to enhance an already shapely physique, or pectoral implants may be used for those who simply do not have the time or desire to spend countless hours at the gym.
Pectoral augmentation, is a surgical procedure designed to add fullness, size, and shape to the male chest. This procedure involves inserting a soft, high-grade, solid silicone implant into a space created under the pectoral muscles. To the touch, it has the feeling and consistency of a flexed muscle. Male pectoral implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. A consultation and physical examination with Dr. Nguyen will determine the most appropriate size and shape for each individual. Scars are easily hidden in the armpit within the hair-bearing skin. Gynecomastia or excess male breast tissue frequently present, should be removed with liposuction along with the “pec” implant surgery.
Reasons for Considering Pectoral Implants/Augmentation:
- If your under-developed pectoral muscles make you feel self-conscious
- If you are athletic and wish to improve your chest contour
- If your chest is asymmetrical or otherwise deformed
Recovery following Pectoral Augmentation:
Depending on the type of pectoral augmentation performed, your time off from work may be as little as a weekend or as long as a week, depending on your line of work. After surgery your will be required to wear a special compression vest/binder. This binder will need to be worn for about a month. In general the procedure is very well tolerated. Pain after surgery is usually very well controlled with oral pain medications.
Dr. Nguyen will ask you to refrain from any strenuous activity for anywhere from four to six weeks, depending on the type of surgery performed. Complications after pectoral augmentation are rare, and can be minimized by carefully following Dr. Nguyen’s post-op instructions.
