Pectoral prostheses

English subtitled video

Many men want to increase the volume of their pectorals and because of their physical constitution they can’t achieve it no matter how much they go to the gym. In this case they went to Clínica Sanza in Barcelona to get pectoral prostheses. These implants are made of a material that does not cause an immunological reaction and integrates with the tissues in a natural way.

It is a type of plastic surgery operation for life, its result does not disappear over the years. Our plastic surgeons at Clínica Sanza, with more than 30 years dedicated exclusively to plastic surgery, advise the patient on what would be best in their case, what would be the correct volume for their physical constitution, taking into account that the last word is the patient’s.

Frequently asked questions about pectoral prosthesis surgery

What is pectoral implant surgery?

Well-proportioned body muscles are a symbol of masculinity. Some people have poor muscle development or defective pectoral muscle development, even if they do a lot of pectoral gymnastics. In these patients, as well as patients with mild thoracic deformities such as pectum excavatum and congenital absence of pectoral muscles, the placement of pectoral implants may be useful to correct these deformities.

What is the pectoral implant procedure like?

In Clinica Sanza we perform a surgical approach by means of an axillary incision through which the implant is introduced and placed in a pocket behind the pectoral muscle. The scar will be hidden in the axillary area. Similar to the placement of breast prostheses, but with prostheses shaped like the pectoralis major muscle.

What material are pectoral implants made of?

Pectoral implants are made of a silicone compound. Its consistency is soft and smooth to the touch, but provides similar firmness to that of the exercised muscle. It is a more cohesive gel than breast prostheses.

What can I expect postoperatively?

After surgery the patient may feel some discomfort with mild pain. These discomforts are controlled by the use of analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs. You must wear a bandage or a girdle for 2-3 weeks so that the prosthesis is well adapted to the muscle.

What type of anesthesia is used in pectoral implant surgery?

Surgery for the placement of pectoral implants is performed under local anesthesia and sedation. This means that the patient will remain asleep during the procedure, absolutely calm, and will not perceive any painful stimuli.

What is the duration of the intervention? Is hospitalization necessary?

The procedure lasts 1-2 hours. It is on an outpatient basis unless the patient requires otherwise and prefers to remain in the hospital for 1 day.

What are the results?

Very natural and very beautiful. A gym-like pectoralis muscle is observed.
