What is Pectoral Augmentation For Men

Male pectoral augmentation surgery, performed by Dr. Kristopher Day at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery in Bellevue, WA, is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the size, shape, and definition of the chest muscles in men. During the surgery, solid silicone implants are surgically inserted beneath the chest muscles to create a more muscular and sculpted appearance. This procedure is often sought by individuals who desire a more defined chest but have been unable to achieve their desired results through diet and exercise alone. Pectoral augmentation surgery aims to improve chest symmetry, enhance muscle definition, and create a more masculine and aesthetically pleasing chest contour.

What to Expect During A
Pectoral Augmentation Procedure

During male pectoral augmentation surgery, performed by Dr. Kristopher Day at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery in Bellevue, WA, the patient will typically undergo the following steps:

  1. Anesthesia: The procedure is performed under general anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort and safety throughout the surgery.

  1. Incision Placement: Dr. Day makes discreet incisions within the natural contours of the chest, usually in the underarm area or along the lower edge of the pectoral muscle.

  1. Implant Placement: Pectoral implants, typically made of silicone, are carefully inserted into pockets created beneath the pectoral muscles. Dr. Day positions the implants to achieve the desired shape and contour of the chest.

  1. Closure: Once the implants are in place, the incisions are closed with sutures. Dr. Day may use dissolvable sutures or sutures that need to be removed during a follow-up appointment.

  1. Dressing and Bandaging: The surgical site is dressed with sterile bandages to protect the incisions and support the chest during the initial healing phase.

The procedure usually takes a few hours to complete, depending on the complexity of the surgery and the patient’s individual anatomy.


Recovering From A
Pectoral Augmentation Procedure

After male pectoral augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Kristopher Day at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery, the patient can expect the following during recovery:

  1. Immediate Post-Operative Period: After the procedure, the patient will be monitored in a recovery area until fully awake from anesthesia. Pain medication may be prescribed to manage discomfort during this time.

  1. Initial Healing: The patient may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the chest area, which is normal and expected. Dr. Day may recommend wearing a compression garment to minimize swelling and support the chest during the initial healing phase.

  1. Restricted Activities: Patients are typically advised to avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and upper body exercises for several weeks following surgery to allow the chest muscles and incisions to heal properly.

  1. Follow-Up Appointments: Dr. Day will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s progress, remove any sutures if necessary, and assess the healing of the surgical site. He will provide specific instructions on wound care, activity restrictions, and when to resume normal activities.

  1. Long-Term Recovery: While initial swelling and discomfort will gradually diminish over the first few weeks, it may take several months for the final results of the surgery to become fully apparent as the chest area settles and heals. It is necessary for patients to follow Dr. Day’s post-operative instructions carefully to ensure optimal results and a smooth recovery process.
