Available in established NYC plastic surgery practices, male pec implants are an ideal option for men to achieve the desired chest muscle tone and definition, especially when even hours at the gym fail to work. Individuals with genetic and physical flaws and bodybuilders can benefit from this cosmetic surgical procedure. An experienced surgeon with artistic skills can provide custom male pectoral implant surgery to help patients achieve the chest size they want and attain a toned, sculpted look.
The treatment is usually provided as outpatient surgery under general anesthesia and takes about 2 hours to complete. One of the questions that most patients ask their surgeon is whether male chest implants are noticeable to the touch. According to expert surgeons, you won’t be able to feel them that easily when the surgery is performed correctly and the implants are placed so that they are well hidden by the tissues. Just like breast implants for women, pectoral implants would be noticeable and easier to feel if they are placed above the muscle.
The chest wall structure is another factor that helps determine how noticeable they are.In very thin people, pectoral implants can rarely be slightly noticeable. This also applies for those with thin pectoral muscles. However, for men who train their chest muscles, the thick pectoralis muscles usually blunt all the edges of the implants.
While the hardness of the implant can vary between different implant manufacturers, the softest implants too will be palpable to some extent. They are more palpable when there is less soft tissue over them.
