What are pectoral implants?
If you would like a more developed looking chest, pectoral implants could help you achieve a stronger, more defined appearance. Sometimes working out at the gym doesn’t achieve the results you want, and with today’s busy lifestyles it’s hard to find the time you need to spend there. The ageing process and changes in weight can also weaken your chest muscles and cause them to sag. Chest implants increase the projection and bulk of the pectorals, and help to give you a more developed physique.
About the pectoral implants (chest implants) procedure
Chest implants are inserted through small incisions along the armpit crease, and placed directly under the chest muscle. Any scarring should be hidden in the armpit.
The operation is performed under general anaesthetic, which means you will be asleep during the procedure. It is usually performed as a day case, though sometimes you may need to stay in hospital overnight after your operation. You will need to plan one to two weeks off work to recover, and should avoid exercise for up to six weeks following the operation.
As with any cosmetic procedure, it is important that you review your expectations thoroughly before you decide to proceed. Your surgeon will explain the results you can expect after pectoral implant surgery, and will discuss the associated risks and alternatives to the procedure before going ahead.
