Pectoral Augmentation & Pectoral Implants
in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, CA
Men, mostly average folk’s not just bodybuilders, don’t infrequently seek augmentation and/or enhancement of their chest. Frequently these men do workout but are unable to proportionally grow their pectoral muscles. Most all of us have at least one strong and/or favorite body part, but also have at least one body part that is relatively weak and/or small. Others may be limited by trauma or by genetic and developmental nerve and muscle deformities such as Poland’s Syndrome (missing pectoral muscle), Pectus Excavatum (funnel chest) or Pectus Carinatum (pigeon chest). In any case, these individuals are frequently embarrassed to be in public places, such as pools, beaches, and locker rooms without their shirt on.
Fortunately, there exists a relatively safe and effective surgical procedure using semi-solid silicone rubber (not gel like breast) implants. Through a small inch, or so incision within an armpit crease, the implant is placed under the existing pectoralis major muscle belly (except Poland’s Syndrome, where it is placed just under the subcutaneous fascia layer) to augment/enhance the chest. Also because these implants are not filled with gel, they cannot rupture or leak, thus they are considered to be permanent (e.g. no need for replacement after 10 years like breast implants).
