"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

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.
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
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.

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.
