Pectoral Implants

Conveniently located to serve Houston

Due to genetics and other factors, many men are unable to build and sculpt a firm, masculine chest no matter how much time they spend in the gym. Fortunately, Dr. Marcos Ikeda offers highly customized treatments with pectoral implants in Houston, so men can achieve their desired chest contours.

What Are Pectoral Implants?

Pectoral implants are medical devices made of silicone that can be surgically placed to enhance the appearance of the male chest. Designed to create a firmer, more muscular-looking chest, pec implants come in oval and rectangular shapes and are much flatter than the silicone breast implants available to women seeking breast augmentation.

Am I a Good Candidate for Pectoral Implant Surgery?

Dr. Marcos will meet with you for a consultation to determine whether pec implants are the best treatment option for your needs. In general, ideal candidates for pec implants are men who are physically healthy, at a stable and height-appropriate body weight, and do not smoke.

If you meet the above criteria and your motivation for pectoral implant surgery involves one or more of the following concerns, you may be a good candidate for this procedure:

  • Underdeveloped and undefined chest muscles despite consistent, targeted exercise
  • Gender-affirming surgery for patients transitioning from female to male
  • Congenital issues, such as a deep breastbone that causes the chest to appear sunken

What to Expect During Pectoral Implant Surgery

Pec implant surgery is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes one to two hours. It is an outpatient procedure, so you will not need to spend the night at the surgical facility.

Pectoral implants are placed via a small incision in each armpit. After making the necessary incisions, Dr. Marcos will insert the implants between the pectoralis minor and pectoralis major muscles. Sutures will be used to close the incisions.

What to Expect After Pectoral Implant Surgery

You will notice a difference in the shape of your chest right away. You can expect ongoing improvements as post-op swelling subsides over the next several weeks.

Recovery after pectoral implant surgery will involve about a week of downtime. It is normal for the chest to feel sore and tight for a few days after the procedure. Dr. Marcos can recommend over-the-counter pain medications that you can take to manage any discomfort as you heal.

It is important to avoid vigorous activities and heavy lifting for three weeks or more, as directed by Dr. Marcos. You may be advised to wear a specialized compression garment to secure the implant position and minimize swelling during the initial stage of the healing process.

How Much Do Pectoral Implants Cost?

The price of your procedure will reflect the specific pectoral implants you selected, applicable anesthesia and facility fees, and the total surgery time. The cost associated with your pec implant surgery will be reviewed with you during your consultation.
