"My surgery was great. No issues and had a good recovery time. The staff was great, especially the 2 girls at the counter. I’ll be back in the future!"- J.B. / Google / Mar 18, 2020
"I wish I could give more than five stars; AMAZING experience! I've struggled to build muscle/bulk in certain areas of my body my whole life and decided it was time to take action. For about 6 months, I researched options and plastic surgeons, mostly based in LA and NY. I luckily stumbled across Dr. Dorner in my search and I'm so glad I found him. The whole staff is very friendly, supportive, smart and very accommodating. Dr. Dorner made recommendations based on the results I was trying to achieve and I have to say, he knocked it out of the park. I highly recommend Dorner Plastic Surgery."- R.C. / Google / Nov 23, 2019
"When All else Fails - If you've read my first procedure review, you know what's happening. If not, I'll give a brief synopsis for you.Back in 2016; I worked my a** off, literally. After losing 90 pounds I was left with stubborn belly fat and saggy skin around my abdomen. It was really affecting me and my view of my body. I worked extremely hard and felt I had nothing to show for it. Enter in, Dr. Dorner.I had my tummy tuck with muscle repair and liposuction done in September of 2016. 12 weeks into recovery..........Pregnant.I was extremely worried. I had just had this major abdominal surgery and now it was going to be undone; would it be okay for the baby, is it going to be too tight, would there be any complications? I had an amazing OB/GYN and it turned out her brother is a plastic surgeon. She said that she has had several patients that have had a tummy tuck and then had babies, with little complications, although they hadn't been as soon after.Long story short, everything turned out fine. I was fine, baby was fine (although she was breech and we couldn't get her to turn - no matter how hard we tried) and she was born in August of 2017.During my pregnancy I gained about 29 pounds. After my pregnancy, I gained additional weight. You know....new baby, whatever sleep I could get, nursing..these things took priority. I have managed to lose 23 pounds. So that's great, but it hasn't been lost from where I want. I've been trying hard, not as hard as before but still hard and the fats just not budging.I saw Dr. Dorner today for a consultation; after looking at the areas around my hips, he agreed and said he could perform liposuction with no issues. He did ask if I had had any drastic weight loss prior to my tummy tuck because I have more skin than he'd expect for someone who gained a small amount during pregnancy. I can't fault him for asking, I doubt he remembers my previous history, so I said yes. He briefly mentioned a posterior body tuck which I guess is like a tummy tuck for the backside. No thanks. Just the lipo please. I can live with my cellulite and not have to finance a down payment on a house.The quote was less than I imagined so I'm fairly certain this is going to happen. Just have to plan when; it looks like it will be shortly before mother's day, he's good at what he does and books out pretty far, plus it'll be my gift to myself."- M. / RealSelf / Mar 10, 2020

Pectoral Implants Ideal Candidates
There are multiple categories of patients who benefit from pectoral implants. The most common individual is just your average male who would like to have better definition in the pectoral region. Very athletic individuals also benefit from pectoral implants as they can further define and shape their contours. Patients who have had a congenital loss of the pectoral muscle benefit substantially from an implant as it can dramatically improve symmetry. Additionally, patients who have had significant weight loss benefit greatly from this procedure as much of their definition may have been lost. The implants fill out the loose tissues and provide improved definition. Sometimes in this category, a chest lift may also be necessary. The aging male also benefits dramatically from this procedure, since definition tends to decrease as we get older.
Pectoral Implants Procedure Technique
A pectoral implant procedure is performed under general anesthesia in our surgery center. A small incision is created within the armpit, similar to a transaxle area breast augmentation. Through the small incision, a pocket is created within the pectoral muscle just below the thick fascia that covers the muscle. The implant is then inserted and carefully positioned to provide the appropriate shape and definition.
There are multiple types of implants available. At Dorner Plastic Surgery, these can be customized depending on the type of shape and definition you desire. Custom implants are also available to help provide a more defined and individualized appearance. These custom implants can either be sculpted out of modeling silicone and then produced at the factory, or they can be created from a CT scan and refined through the use of computer simulation.
What to Expect with Pectoral Implants
Drains are generally not needed following a pectoral implant procedure. Most patients are able to go home the same day. Following the surgery, you can expect to be sore for several weeks, but early activity is encouraged. Most patients are able to return to work after about one week.
Pectoral Implants Frequently Asked Questions
How much do pectoral implants cost?

What other procedures can be paired with pectoral implants?
Several patients opt to have additional procedures performed alongside a pectoral implant procedure. These may include liposuction or upper body implants (deltoid, bicep, tricep, and trapezius) to help you achieve even more enhanced results. In your consultation. Dr. Dorner will be able to understand your overall desired figure and suggest complementary procedures to go along with pectoral implants.
What is the difference between pectoral implants and etching?
While pectoral etching does help to eliminate excess fat from the pectoral muscles, it does not add definition or volume for a more muscular appearance. Pectoral implants add bulk for a fuller, enhanced chest. In many cases, both pectoral etching and implants can be utilized for optimal outcomes.
