Body Sculpting for a Defined Male Chest

Muscle tone and definition can dramatically alter the look of a man's body. Hard hours in the gym, combined with diet and other exercises, usually work toward transforming an undefined male figure into the traditional large chest, small waist, tight buttocks, and muscular thighs and calves we see in magazines. But at times, heredity and body type make all the hard work in the world seem unsuccessful, as some parts of some men's bodies simply don't respond.

Plastic surgery techniques to contour women's bodies, such as liposuction, lifts, and implant procedures, are well known. Men have those options, too. And the results for men and women can be equally successful. Yet, men tend to be less likely to do the research and take the plunge.

How Pectoral Implant Procedure is Done

Today, plastic surgeons have used the lessons learned in making women's breast augmentation surgery successful, as well as medicine's vast knowledge of working with implants, and applied them to a procedure called pectoral augmentation and reconstruction for men. With custom-made implants, a patient with a small, undefined chest can get a dramatic, more youthful appearance of the pectorals. The implants are solid silicone--a plus because they cannot leak and this type of implant affords plastic surgeons the opportunity to carve and shave them to achieve the precise thickness, overall look, and feel the patient desires.

Preoperative planning is an important phase of pectoral implant surgery. To be successful, the surgery has to build the pectoral muscles without looking awkward for the patient's own body shape. The patient and doctor should talk at length about the specific changes about to take place. Doctors go as far as to draw the changes and transpose them to a clear plastic sheet so the patient can visualize what to expect from the surgery.

Patients require general anesthesia for the surgery, which can be done on an outpatient basis. During surgery, doctors place the implants below the pectoral muscle, making them visually undetectable. To enhance results for men who have fatty tissue around their pectorals or abdomen, surgeons can perform liposuction simultaneously with pectoral implant surgery. This can further increase the contoured results, giving men more definition--even a smaller waistline.

Ideal candidates for the procedure are usually in their 20s and 30s, and the results are permanent. Men who have the surgery can resume normal sports and activities about three weeks after surgery, and the implants do not hinder performance when they are correctly placed. Pectoral implant surgery can be used for cosmetic purposes, but it also can be an ideal reconstructive technique for those who have suffered trauma, rupture of the pectoralis major muscle, or for others who were born without or with only a partial pectoralis major muscle.
