Pec Implants in New York, NY

Throughout history, the desired characteristics of the male form have been consistent: strong arm and leg muscles, chiseled abs, and a defined chest. However, many men struggle with this last characteristic. It doesn’t matter how healthy their diet is or how much they can bench, some men are unable to shape their chests into that muscular form that has become synonymous with male strength. However, there is an answer for men looking to add definition to their chests, and it isn’t found at the gym!

Pec implants can help men gain the look and feel they desire for their chests, all while allowing them the confidence to walk around shirtless at the pool or beach.

The surgical experts at New Look New Life have years of experience helping both men and women achieve the body physiques they so desperately want.

  • The benefits of pec implants are both physical and psychological. Men who’ve had pectoral implants have the chiseled chest aesthetic that so many men desire for themselves (and so many women desire to touch). And with the improved chest definition comes a boost in confidence. No longer will men have to worry about hiding their undefined chests.

  • Candidates for pec implants are unhappy or embarrassed with their lack of pectoral muscle definition. Additionally, pectoral implants can help men who suffer from underdeveloped pectoral muscles, whether from birth or injury.

    Ideal candidates are non-smoking men, who are in good general health and have realistic expectations for their results.

  • At your consultation, your surgeon at New Look New Life will listen to your frustrations about your current chest aesthetic as well as your goals for the procedure. You and your surgeon will choose the pec implant size and shape that works best for you, and you will be given pre- and post-surgical instructions.

    If you think you may be a candidate for pec implant surgery, contact New Look New Life Surgical Arts by calling (646) 559-2854.

  • Pec implant surgery allows men to gain the toned definition in their chests that they may not be able to get with diet and exercise alone. This surgery often takes one to one-and-a-half hours to complete.

    Where Are Pec Implant Incisions Made?

    During the surgery, the incisions for pec implants are made in the armpit, where the two pectoralis muscles (major and minor) meet.

    What Is the Implant Made Of?

    While women undergoing breast implants have the choice of silicone or saline implants, a solid silicone material is used for male pectoral implants. Unlike female implants, which are soft, the male’s solid silicone replicates the toned feel of natural pectoral muscles.

  • Liposuction is sometimes used during pec implant surgery if the patient has stubborn fat in his chest. The liposuction removes the fat before the implant is placed, allowing for an even more dynamic result.

  • There are quite a few procedures that can be combined with pec implant surgery to enhance masculine contour. These procedures include:

What Are Your Concerns?

  • It generally takes up to six weeks to recover from pectoral implant surgery. In the days following the procedure, you will have swelling and bruising, and you will likely be sore. Medication can be taken to alleviate any pain. These side effects will dissipate over your first week of recovery. Most men can return to non-strenuous work after two to three days; however, it is important that you avoid any heavy lifting or other strenuous activity while you heal.

    The surgeons at New Look New Life provide all of their patients with their cell phone numbers so that they can be reached at any time during their recovery.

  • Before your surgery, you will be given an anesthetic, so you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. After the surgery, you will most likely have some pain, but this can be lessened with medication.

  • Like any surgery, having pec implants put in requires an incision, and with any incision, there will be scarring. However, due to the placement of the incisions (in the armpits), these scars will not be visible.

How Much Do Pec Implants Cost in New York?

Pec implant cost varies with each patient and is dependent on numerous factors, including the size and shape of the implant and whether liposuction is needed.

During your consultation at New Look New Life, you will be given an accurate cost estimate. It is important to note that we offer financing options through CareCredit® to assist you in paying for your pec implants in New York.

What Are Some Frequently Asked Questions About Pec Implants?

  • Though you will have some swelling in your chest and will likely be wearing a compression garment to help with recovery, your results are immediate and will continue to become more apparent over the next few weeks.

  • General anesthesia is used during pec implant surgery, so you can rest assured knowing that you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

  • Though rare, some risks associated with pec implant surgery include:

    • Bleeding
    • Infection
    • Asymmetry
  • While you may lose some sensitivity in the area during your recovery, your skin sensitivity should return to normal after several weeks.

  • Your pec implant is inserted between the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor muscles.
