How you look has a direct effect on how you feel. As a man, you want to look and feel like a manly man. This is challenging when you do not have the muscle definition that many other men walk around with in the gym. Fortunately, all hope is not lost for those who long to achieve the defined pectoral muscles that many others possess.
If you are one of the men wishing to change the appearance of your chest by adding definition, Hi Def Pec Augmentation may be just the thing give you bulk in your chest, a boost of self-confidence, and attention.
What is Hi Def Pectoral Augmentation?
Hi definition pectoral augmentation is the process of adding definition and mass to a man’s pectoral region of their chest. A firm implant is introduced to the pectoral cavity of the receiving male patient. This implant is adjusted by Dr. Steinbrech in his New York City office to achieve the best possible full chest look. This procedure is done as an outpatient operation with minimal invasion. The results from this type of minimally invasive outpatient surgery are instant, with little pain, and with a quick recovery time.
Why Hi Def Pectoral Augmentation?
There are many men who simply lack the ability to develop their pectoral muscles to the degree that they would like, regardless of the amount of time they spend in the gym. Chests that appear as adolescent or boyish will benefit from the added chest and pec volume, which one can achieve with this type of minimally invasive procedure. Having a fuller chest will give the patient a boost of confidence and added sex appeal. Achieving this mature look is possible with a hi def pectoral augmentation.
Before undergoing this type of elective surgery it is important to select a close friend or family member to aid in the more strenuous of your everyday activities for a few days after the procedure. The doctor will require blood and urine testing beforehand to rule out any unknown issues or problems. Other than a good night’s sleep the night before, there are no pre-surgery preparations that need attention.
The procedure of this type of augmentative surgery involves the patient being put under with general anesthesia. Once comfortably numb, Dr. Steinbrech will create a small incision in the armpit of the patient. The implant is then slid into place through this tiny opening in the skin. Dr. Steinbrech will maneuver the implant into the desired position within the existing pectoral muscles. The implant is held in place by the existing pectoral muscles in the chest. The implant, although it shares the same space as the chest muscles, does not hinder the movement or use of the chest muscles in any way. Dr. Steinbrech will align and shape the pecs to achieve the fullest, most chiseled look possible. The incision is then closed to finish the augmentation. This same procedure is repeated on the other side of the chest and armpit.
*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
After the surgery is complete, the patient may incur some slight discomfort in the area of the incisions. There may be isolated areas of bruising and tenderness for a few days and up to a week. Plenty of rest is recommended with limitations on the amount of activity that one engages in for a couple of weeks. Men who have recently undergone this type of outpatient surgery need refrain from lifting or stressing their chest muscles for a few days up to six weeks. Normal activity can be resumed fully after approximately one week of healing. After the chest and incisions have fully healed, men are able to participate in any type of workout or bodybuilding regime they desire.
The risks involved in this type of surgery are minimal. The main risks involve the bruising, swelling, and discomfort that come with this type of surgery. As with any type of surgery that involves the use of anesthesia, there is always a risk of an allergic reaction. In some rare cases the patient may develop an infection that will require the attention of a physician for antibiotics. There is also a risk of the implants not being symmetrical in appearance or shifting within the chest after the procedure. These complications can be kept to a minimum by taking the time to assure that the surgeon doing the augmentation has highly quality and proven skill in the field of augmentation.
Are You A Good Candidate?
There is no limit to the type, age, or size of the man looking to improve his pectoral region. Candidates for this type of outpatient surgery include everyday men looking for definition, bodybuilders trying to achieve a fuller chest look, and any male seeking to enhance their physical appearance with larger, shapelier chest muscles.
Reviews from Patients
I had pec implants done by Dr. Steinbrech in August 2016. I was a bit nervous prior to my initial consultation but Dr. Steinbrech and his wonderful staff immediately put me at ease. Dr. Steinbrech took his time and answered all my questions and concerns. The surgery was scheduled a few months later and I was once again put at ease the morning of surgery by Dr. Steinbrech and his friendly and caring staff. The surgery was a great success. The implants have settled in nicely and have given me greater confidence in the way I look. I wish I had known about Dr. Steinbrech years ago, I would have had the surgery sooner. As busy as his practice is I've never felt "rushed" during any of my follow up appointments. Dr. Steinbrech is definitely one of the best if not the best cosmetic surgeon in NYC.
Hi Def Pectoral Implants FAQs
How long will it last?
Generally a pectoral augmentation implant will last the patient a lifetime. There is always the chance for complications, but overall patients are rarely in need of a second surgery.
What should I expect after the procedure?
Immediately after the procedure, the patient may feel groggy and nauseated from the anesthesia. When the initial pain medication wears off, the patient will likely encounter discomfort, swelling, and tenderness. The surgeon will prescribe pain medications to control the discomfort level. There will be minimum (nearly unnoticeable) scarring where the surgeon makes the incision in the armpit to insert the implants.
What are the risks?
The risks involved include swelling, redness, tenderness, and discomfort of the incision sight and possibly the chest area. Depending on each individual patient’s tolerance to anesthesia there may by adverse effects or allergic reactions. The largest and most dangerous of the risks is the risk of infection of the surgical site or the implanted area. When any signs of an infection or fever are present after any type of surgical procedure, contact Dr. Steinbrech’s New York City clinic immediately for clinical advice and follow up care.
How soon can I return to work?
It is best to take it easy for one to two weeks. A full recovery can be expected in one to two months. Returning to work depends tremendously on the type of work that one does. Men who hold business positions and require a desk and telephone may return to work sooner than a man who spends his days pouring concrete. Each case has its own individual parameters and limitations. Dr. Steinbrech will be able to give a determination of the correct amount of time that the patient will need to recover.
