Pectoral Augmentation Treatment Abroad
Women aren't the only ones dissatisfied with the size or shape of their chest. Some men are also unhappy with the appearance of their pecs, or chest muscles known as pectorals. Men with sunken chests, those who have lost weight or those who just can't seem to increase the size of their chests despite rounds of exercises may benefit from pectoral augmentation. While not a very common procedure, it is fairly straightforward and may benefit men around the world who are looking for that little bit of enhancement that will offer greater self-confidence and self-esteem.
Pectoral Augmentation Procedure
Pectoral augmentation utilizes an implant, much like those used for women undergoing breast augmentation procedures. Chest implants designed for men are created of soft silicone implants.
The implants are inserted through a small incision in the man's armpit. An endoscopic procedure, which utilizes a long, thin tube with a camera and a light on the end, inserted into the muscular structures of the best. Most often the implant is inserted beneath the pectoral muscles and then sutured into place with overlaying chest muscles and muscular structures.
The procedure takes about two hours from start to finish, during which the man is placed under general anesthesia. Patients generally recover from the procedure in about four to six weeks, when they can resume activities. However, weightlifters are cautioned to wait an additional two to three weeks before resuming any weight-lifting routines.
Who Benefits from Pectoral Augmentation?
Any man dissatisfied with the size of his chest after repeated and continual effort to increase chest size through weight-lifting may benefit from this procedure. Men recovering from traumatic injuries, deformities, muscle tears or other physical conditions may also benefit from the procedure. However, prospective patients should understand that pectoral augmentation is designed to create a more defined muscular appearance and not merely a larger chest, as is the case with breast augmentation for women.
Cost of Pectoral Augmentation
In the United States, pectoral augmentation procedures may cost an average of between $5,000 and $7,000, depending on geographical area. Medical travelers to destinations such as South America, Poland, and Thailand or Singapore may spend thousands of dollars less, with an average saving of approximately 40% to 60% on the same procedure performed in the U.S.
Who Performs Pectoral Augmentation Procedures?
A cosmetic or plastic surgeon with experience in pectoral augmentation is recommended for this procedure in order to achieve optimal results. Plastic surgeons should belong to national or international plastic and cosmetic surgical organizations or associations, and have ample experience in the field of implants to achieve desired results. Ask for verification of training, education, experience and certification prior to choosing a surgeon, and make sure that surgical facilities are accredited by country of origin.
