Before the breast implant surgery, the patient goes through an examination to ask all their questions concerning the intervention, the contraindications and the postoperative follow-up of the recovery time. During the preoperative examination, the patient expresses their expectations of the pectoral implants placement, as well as the dimensions and projection of the implant.
The plastic surgeon suggests the appropriate pectoral implant. In fact, it should be suitable to the size of the pectoralis major and its shape after measuring the thorax.
The pectoral implant consists of a smooth envelope filled with a very cohesive silicone gel. In general, the pectoral implants have either a rectangular shape or a rounded parallelogram shape. There are different shapes and sizes relevant to the male chest morphology.
The pectoral implant surgery is done under general anesthesia, and lasts approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Besides, the patient should stay one night in the clinic.
How is pectoral muscle implant surgery performed?
The plastic surgeon makes a vertical incision, high in the armpit, of five centimeters to leave a pocket in order to insert implants under the pectoral muscles and over the ribs. In fact, the scars are invisible. The practitioner then places the prosthesis in place under the pectoralis major muscle. Besides, the pectoral implants fixation can be done by detaching the muscle at the edge of the sternum and replacing it with the implants. Finally, the surgeon makes the sutures with resorbable threads and then puts an elastic garment on the area.
Scars related to breast implants intervention
The scars will be hidden, following the pectoral intervention, since the incision is made in the hollow of the armpit. Therefore, any scars remain invisible. Besides, the stitches are sutured with resorbable threads that will disappear after 15 days. In addition, the dressing will be placed at the level of the chest in order to allow the pectoral implants adaptation to the muscles and to guarantee a better scarring.
