Miami Pec Implants & Male Breast Reduction by Dr. Tachmes
MALE CHEST WALL AUGMENTATION
For healthy male patients who desire more definition, shape and contour to their chest wall anatomy, augmentation with solid silicone pectoral implants is a safe and reliable procedure option. The implants are placed below the pectoralis major muscle via a small incision in the armpit.
A second option for male chest wall augmentation, projection and definition is fat transfer augmentation to the chest wall. Liposuction is used to harvest fat from the abdomen, flanks and thighs. This fat is then placed into the chest wall region to create a more sculpted and defined appearance while adding size and shape.
This condition results from an excessive accumulation of fatty and/or breast tissue in the male breast. After a careful history and physical examination, patients can be treated with a combination of Vaser ultrasound liposuction and/or direct excision of breast tissue via a small nipple areolar incision. The procedure selected depends on the type and amount of excess tissue present.
What to expect during recovery
- There may be some slight bruising around the incisions; this will soon disappear. A special scar prevention/lessening medication is begun about two to three weeks following surgery
- No vigorous activities such as weight lifting, bicycling, running, etc. One can usually progress to these activities about a month or two following the surgery but is dependent on any persistent discomfort or swelling and varies from person to person
- Pain and discomfort is controlled with prescribed medication
- The patient is usually able to return to full physical activities within 4-6 weeks
