When is it justified?
The size and shape of the pectoral muscles are genetically determined, so they can only be changed to a limited degree by exercise. Thus, if you are unsatisfied with the shape or size of your pectoral muscles, it is advised to consult a plastic surgeon. During the preliminary consultation, the specialist will show you different implants and he will help you to choose the one that perfectly fits your anatomy.
Before the surgery, you have to undergo a complete and throughout screening to make sure that you do not have any health issue that might influence the outcome. To make the process more comfortable for you, we perform all the necessary screenings at our Institute in the same place and time. During the days before your pectoral muscle augmentation only have light meals, drink a lot and take vitamin supplements, such as Vitamin C, selenium and zinc. Avoid taking any aspirin, ginko biloba and any type of natural or herbal medicine.
The course of the intervention
Missing pectoral muscle volume is supplemented by implants. The surgery is performed in anesthesia and usually only takes an hour.
Implants are inserted through a 4-5 centimeters long incision made in the underarms, so the scar it leaves will not be visible. The implant is usually placed between the tissue layers of the large pectoral muscle. At the end of the surgery, drains are also inserted and fastened to your chest for 24 hours.
Recovery and aftercare
After your pectoral muscle augmentation you have to spend a night in our hospital, and then the drains are removed from your chest the following day. The plastic surgeon puts waterproof bandages over your scars, so you do not have to worry about getting them wet when you take a shower. You have to wear the special chest compress we provide for 84weeks. It is important to avoid any strenuous physical activity for the first two weeks and even after this period, return to your previous lifestyle gradually, in small steps. However, light exercise is allowed after three weeks. It is not recommended to visit a tanning salon or sauna for 2 months. Your control examinations will be scheduled for the 7th and 14th days, then during weeks 6 and 12 after your surgery.
