Pensacola Pec Implants or Pectoral Implants
Commonly referred to as pec implants, pectoral implant surgery is a cosmetic procedure done to give a more muscular and masculine appearance to the chest. A solid, appropriately sized and shaped implant is used to increase the size and define the appearance of the chest. Sometimes exercise can't create enough muscle mass to produce the desired look. When this is the case, pec implants provide a solution.
Reasons for Considering Pec Implants in Pensacola
- Poor muscle development despite exercise
- Congenital deformities of the chest
- Desire for a more masculine upper body
The Pectoral Implant Procedure by your Pensacola Plastic Surgeon
Performed under general anesthesia, you will be able to go home the same day as your pec implant surgery. The surgery is performed through small incisions at the edge of the chest. The implant is placed under the pectoralis muscle. The specific implant is carefully chosen by Dr. Shaddix based upon your anatomy and desired result. The incisions are closed with sutures that dissolve and do not need to be removed.
Recovery following Pec Implants in Pensacola
Recovery following placement of pec implants is fairly short. You will be able to return to work after a few days, though some men prefer to take a week off. You will have some discomfort, but Dr. Shaddix will provide you with prescription medications to keep it controlled. You shouldn't exercise vigorously for about a month after surgery. Dr. Shaddix will provide you with detailed instructions to guide you through the recovery period and he will be available to answer your questions along the way.
