Male silicone implants are used to provide a healthier way in different regions of the body such as the chest, thighs, biceps and triceps. This operation is a virtually instant way to get the look of toned muscles. But aesthetics are not the only motivation for men want to perform the surgery. People who suffer from atrophy, thais is, who can’t develop muscles even practicing physical exercises regularly, and even individuals who have congenital deformities usually contemplate implanting silicones.
Unlike the material of the female prosthesis and other regions on male, the gel of the pectoral implants is more compact and has the approximate consistency of a toned muscle. The size of the prostheses always rectangular and thinner, shall vary according to the dimensions of the chest, height and bone structure of the patient. Doctors say that 300 milliliters is the limit of the silicone gel that should be implemented, because a big pectoral can cause a disproportionate appearance. In addition, the patient must have more than 18 years, it is necessary that the bone structure and the production of hormones are stabilized.
Silicone prostheses are inserted under the pectoral muscle through an incision of five to six cm on the armpits of the patient. Because of the hair in the cut region, the scar tends to be hidden. The location of the implant under the muscle promotes a look and a more natural texture than in the female body, if the prosthesis is well placed above the muscle.
Although the patient may be discharged from hospital the same day as the surgery was performed, physical effort must be spared in the first two weeks. The implants do not limit the movements of the arms, but it is necessary to expect them to acommodate in the pectoral. A chest modeling girdle is required to assist the healing and decrease swelling and bleeding. After 45 days after surgery, it is necessary to start and maintain an exercise routine to keep the obtained results. The same period should be respected for the patient to expose to the sun. If the interested in performing this surgery presents uncontrolled systemic disease, diabetes or hypertension, it will be necessary to perform a medical evaluation to study the possibility to perform the procedure.
