Preoperative Measurements and Sizing for Standard and Custom Pectoral Implants

Pectoral implants are the most effective method for male chest enhancement. There are a wide variety of standard pectoral implant sizes from which to choose. But unlike breast implants in women how to size and select pectoral implants is not as well known. Pectoral implants are paced exclusively in an intramuscular pocket. This means the lateral border of the pectorals Read More…

Plastic Surgery Case Study – Pectoral Implants in Tall Men

Background: While pectoral implants may be for male chest enhancement they are not the equivalent of breast implants for women. Besides the solid composition of pectoral implants, they are also different than breast implants because they are intended to create a pure muscular augmentation effect. This means that the lateral border of the muscle should Read More…

Plastic Surgery Case Study – Treatment of Pectoral Implant Contracture

Background:  Pectoral implants are the definitive treatment for enhanced muscle definition and size of the male chest. They are placed in a completely submuscular location underneath the pectoralis major muscle unlike female breast implants which are usually partially submuscular or on top of the muscle. Also, unlike breast implants, they are designed out of a Read More…

Plastic Surgery Case Study – Custom Pectoral Implant in Male Poland Syndrome

Background: Poland syndrome is a well known congenital chest deformity typically affecting only one side of the body. It is most commonly characterized by underdevelopment of the pectorals muscle with a higher and often smaller nipple-areolar complex. They are many other potential anatomic abnormalities such as anomalies of the rib cage and the ipsilateral upper Read More…

Technical Strategies – Funnel Insertion Technique for Pectoral Implants

  In some ways pectoral implants are the male equivalent of the female breast implant. While the enhanced anatomic structure is different (muscle vs breast mound), the surgical placement of the implant needed to do so is largely the same. Both pectoral and breast implants are placed in the submuscular plane underneath the pectoralis major Read More…
