Are chest implants for men right for me?

How soon can I have pec implant surgery?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega, she will help you select the pec implant size and shape that best suits your overall body. During that appointment, you may schedule your pec implant procedure.
How soon will I see the results of my pectoral implants?
You will be pleased with the stronger appearance of your chest and the definition created by the implants immediately after surgery. The definition will continue to improve as you heal.
What do I need to do to prepare for pec implants?
Smoking, blood thinning medication, and NSAIDs such as aspirin, Advil® or ibuprofen, and Aleve® must be avoided for two weeks before and after your surgery.
How is pec implant surgery performed?
Pec surgery involves the placement of solid, but soft silicone implants just under the pectoral muscles of the chest. These implants are designed to mimic the look and feel of your own natural muscles. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega pay close attention to the placement and contouring of pec implants to ensure masculine lines, a natural feel, and symmetry. In some cases, they may also perform light liposuction to achieve optimal definition. Incisions that are made to place the inserts are in the armpit, ensuring that any scarring is well-hidden.
How long does pec implant surgery take?
Pec implant surgery takes approximately 1-1.5 hours.
Do I have to stay overnight after pec implant surgery?
No! Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega will perform your surgery at our Brooklyn or Manhattan surgical center and you will return home the same day. You should arrange for a ride home from the procedure.
How long does recovery take?
After your pec implant procedure, you will have some swelling, stiffness, and discomfort. Most men are able to return to non-strenuous work within 2-3 days. During your recovery, you should avoid heavy lifting or running. In the days following surgery, your swelling will subside and your improved chest definition will be fully realized.
How long do I have to wait after pec implants before exercising?
You will feel comfortable resuming your normal activities the day after surgery but should wait 7-10 days before returning to strenuous exercise.
