What are Pectoral Implants?
Sometimes, no matter how much exercise we undertake, we cannot achieve the physique we desire. This is normally due to genetics, but can also be down to body fat percentage and work out regime. The pectoral implant procedure is often requested by men who want to increase the size of the chest without the requirement of lifelong weight training or medications.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic by a specialist cosmetic surgeon at one of our luxury private hospitals. The surgeon will make small incisions in the armpit or under the natural chest. A pocket will be made under the skin and the implant placed. Sutures will be made at the incision site and a dressing applied for comfort and to minimize the chance of infection. The whole procedure normally takes about an hour.

Following the procedure, you may feel bruised and sore however this will resolve in the following few days. Simple analgesia such as paracetamol is normally sufficient for pain relief. Any sutures will be removed after 7-10 days. We normally advise people to take a week of work (more if your job is very physical) and return to normal activities and exercise in 6 weeks.

When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
We recommend that people take a week off work following the procedure (more if your job is particularly physical). Strenuous activities, heavy lifting and intense exercise should be avoided for about 6 weeks after your surgery.
Are there any alternatives to this surgery?
Weight training can help develop the size of your pectoral muscles, however if you have tried this and it has failed to give you the results you desired, you may want to investigate pectoral implants.
Can I combine this procedure with other surgery?
Yes, you can combine this procedure with other body surgeries. You can discuss this in full at your free consultation.
Will I have altered sensation in the area?
Whenever skin is cut, nerves are also cut; this may result in altered sensation to the area, particularly at the incision site. All care will be taken to maintain sensation as much as possible.
What weight should I be for surgery?
You should be at a healthy weight for your height when you have surgery as this lowers risks related to anaesthetic. For the best aesthetic results, we recommend that you are at your ideal weight at the time of surgery as further weight loss or gain can change the results of your surgery.
When can I fly after the procedure?
You should check with your surgeon regarding safe timings of air travel following your surgery. Many airlines have their own protocols and you should inform your travel insurance company if you have had recent surgery.
We recommend that in the weeks after surgery, you are close to one of the locations Nu Cosmetic Clinic can refer you to in case you have any concerns, so foreign holidays may be best avoided until a few months after your procedure.
