Pectoral Implants Toronto
PEC IMPLANTS (PECTORAL AUGMENTATION): A COSMETIC SURGERY PROCEDURE TO SHAPE THE APPEARANCE AND SIZE OF THE PECTORAL MUSCLES.
Male pectoral implants in Toronto are becoming an increasingly popular way to achieve greater chest definition. It isn’t always possible to develop the muscle contour you desire, especially given today’s pressures to balance work and lifestyle demands. Pectoral implants shape, enlarge, and firm your chest muscles, helping you attain the look you want while still allowing for natural appearance when the pectoral muscles are either flexed or relaxed.
PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY:
An incision is made in the armpit and a pocket is created under the pectoral muscle. Once the implant pocket is created, a soft, solid silicone implant is sculpted to the exact size and most esthetic appearance. Usually, this sculpting requires vast knowledge from having placed many pectoral implants before, to know specifically how the final implant will look after healing. Once sculpted, the silicone implant is inserted into the pocket and it is secured with a few small self-dissolving sutures. The external incision is closed, and a very small dressing is placed under the arms to promote rapid healing. The patient can typically see the change to the pectoral area immediately after surgery.
During the recovery period, the patient is instructed not to lift their arms after surgery. When the dressings are removed the patient is told to follow a gentle exercise program for the next few weeks to permit a full and comfortable range of motion of the arms. This allows the pec implants to settle into the fascia pockets that surround the muscle. Generally within a week or two, physical use of the upper body muscles may be resumed and within one month, full pectoral muscular activity may be recommenced.
