MASCULINIZATION BODY SURGERY
Pectoral augmentation is a surgery that consists in the implant of a prosthesis under the pectoral in order to masculinize that area.
WHAT IS PECTORAL IMPLANTS?
Pectoral augmentation is a surgery that has the objective of augmenting, projecting and defining the masculine chest area using a prosthesis. This surgery allows trans mens to have a muscled, harmonic and attractive appearance of their pectorals.
Body masculinization surgery
In addition to pectoral augmentation, there are other methods for trans mens to define their body contour.
PECTORAL IMPLANTS SURGERY
The technique for this surgery consists in the submuscular insertion of quadrangular implants, made of silicone cohesive gel, through the axillary or the areolar route in order to create a more defined and muscled appearance (being different from the ones that are usually used in the female breast augmentation surgeries). Both the appearance and the feel of these implants are very natural. It’s a short process that normally requires general anesthesia, usually lasting between one and a half and two hours.
PECTORAL IMPLANTS POSTOPERATIVE
You will be able to return to your laboral activity about a week after the surgery, as long as it does not involve any physical effort. You must wait between one and a half and two months after the surgery to do any sport activity that may affect the pectorals.
THE RESULTS OF PECTORAL IMPLANTS
Although it will be better appreciated after a few days, you’ll be able to observe the aesthetic result of the surgery almost immediately. With a pectoral augmentation surgery you will be able to have a masculine, muscled and attractive looking torse.
