What are Pectoral Implants?
Pectoral implants are carried out in order to enlarge, bulk-up, firm and shape the man’s upper chest area. The aim of pectoral implants is to create the natural appearance of a defined and toned chest, or to correct congenital defects. Pectoral implants do not add power or strength to the muscle.

The surgeon makes an incision in the armpit and creates a pocket in the muscle. Solid silicone implants are inserted within the pocket under the existing pectoral muscle. The incision is then sutured. In some cases, liposuction is also carried out for more effective results.
