Pectoral Enhancement

One of the most popular ways that men try to improve their physical appearance and musculature is by going to the gym. For some guys, no matter how often they exercise or how much weight they lift, the muscles just never seem to fill out they way that they would have liked. The pectoral muscles of the chest can be particularly hard to define and develop.

People with well-developed pecs probably never notice them that much. But for men with small or underdeveloped pectoral muscles, Dr. Solomon offers pectoral muscle enhancement. Chest implants can give men a more masculine appearance. The implants are made out of a soft-solid silicone that will not leak, and come in different sizes to accommodate the aesthetic goals of each individual patient.

The Procedure

Dr. Solomon gives all patients a customized, individual consultation. Dr. Solomon discusses with each patient their aesthetic goals and expectations for the outcome of the procedure. He also answers any questions that patients may have. Dr. Solomon gives patients an exam of their muscles during the consultation as well.

During the surgery, Dr. Solomon makes an incision in each armpit - a good location resulting in minimal and hidden scarring. He then places the implants between the two muscles that make up the chest - the perctoralis major and pectoralis minor. This procedure may be preceded by male breast reduction in Philadelphia to remove excess glandular and fatty tissue. There is an immediate, noticeable improvement in chest size.

For patients undergoing pectoral enhancement, Dr. Solomon recommends returning to light activity within one week; a compression garment is usually worn for about six weeks' time. Pectoral implants won't give men a 'bodybuilder ripped' look, but they will give men who are looking for an immediate increase in size help in looking bigger and better.

Risks & Recovery

As with all surgeries, pectoral enhancement comes with some risk of complications. These include bruising, swelling, pain and infection. Fortunately, complications are rare and can be easily controlled with medications.

Most of Dr. Solomon's patients are extremely happy with the outcome of their procedures. Patients experience a renewed sense of self-confidence and an enhanced self-image, allowing them to lead happier lives.
