Pectoral Implants


Pectoral Implants Pectoral implants can benefit a man who is unhappy with the lack of definition or the bulk that regular workouts bring. Other pectoral implant patients seek correction of a pec muscle that is underdeveloped because of a birth defect or physical trauma.

Male pec implants are usually made out of a firm, yet soft and flexible silicone, as opposed to female silicone implants which are spongy and filled with a silicone gel. The doubts that arose several years ago about silicone (now being widely-retracted) were mostly related to the gel form of the substance, so male pectoral implant patients needn't worry.

Pectoral implants don't affect the natural muscle functionality, so patients can still work out after having the surgery.
