Pectoral Implant Material & Procedure
The pectoral implant material is similar to a female’s breast implant. A slicone implant is used for pectoral procedures for men. Much firmer to allow for the male physique. The implant material used is shown to be safe and is solid enough to prevent any leaks.*
What Can I Expect From My Pectoral Implant Procedure?
- You will be put under general anesthesia for the length of the procedure, which is typically 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours.
- To help hide your scar Dr. Smith reaches your pectoralis muscles through an incision in your armpit
- Dr. Smith goes underneath your existing pectoralis muscles to place the implant, giving your chest a natural look and feel.*
With 4 board certifications in plastic surgery, Dr. Lane Smith is one of a few plastic surgeons qualified to perform this procedure.*
What to Expect After the Procedure
Typically, patients can return to normal activities within a few days. You will not be able to lift anything heavy or exercise for about three to four weeks. Within six to eight weeks, you should be able to return to your normal exercise routine. Dr. Smith will advise on when you can resume shoulder or chest exercises.
