Having a pectoral implant means undergoing a cosmetic surgery to change the appearance and the size of the pectoral muscles. These are the muscles in a male chest, which are impressive and good to look at.
Pectoral implants are solid, silicone prosthetic devices, which are specially carved and shaped for every individual who is having the implant done before insertion. After the implant, they should look and feel natural, yet give them the desired chest according to each individual body shape or defect. Bicep and triceps implants are the ones most commonly used to shape, enlarge and firm the upper chest and arm areas and if they are correctly inserted then they give a natural appearance of the chest and muscles in both the flexed and relaxed condition.
An incision is made in the armpit and a pocket is created in the fascia of the upper pectoral muscle. Once the implant pocket is created, a soft, solid silicone implant is sculpted to the exact size and most esthetic appearance.
Usually, this sculpting requires vast knowledge from having placed many pectoral implants before, to know specifically how the final implant will look after healing. Once sculpted, the silicone implant is inserted into the pocket and it is secured with a few small self-dissolving sutures. The external incision is closed, and a very small dressing is placed under the arms to promote rapid healing. The patient can typically see the change to the pectoral area immediately after surgery.
During the recovery period, the patient is instructed not to lift their arms after surgery. When the dressings are removed the patient is told to follow a gentle exercise program for the next few weeks to permit a full and comfortable range of motion of the arms. This allows the pec implants to settle into the fascia pockets that surround the muscle. Generally within a week or two, physical use of the upper body muscles may be resumed and within one month, full pectoral muscular activity may be recommenced.
PLEASE NOTE: This method may result in the appearance of stretch marks on the chest (tattoos can become distorted)

It’s easy to think that it’s only us ‘norms’ who constantly see the flaws in our own bodies, but that’s not true; in a recent interview, Rihanna – who, let’s face it, most of us would kill to look like – has her insecurities too.
The 24-year-old star is going to be seen in the upcoming issue of Harper’s Bazaar. After losing some weight, it sounds like Rihanna is lamenting the loss of one of her favourite features. “I miss my ass,” she says. “It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”
Cosmetic surgery could well be the solution that Rihanna turns to in a few years’ time; if the young star if after a fuller, bouncier bum, then buttock augmentation surgery, or even a Brazillian buttlift, could be just what the doctor ordered.
Of course, I don’t think Rihanna is desperately in need of cosmetic surgery, having a body to die for, but that’s not for anyone to say but her! After all, cosmetic surgery is all about feeling happy with your own body.
Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery Ltd., says that “Rihanna’s got a gorgeous body, but if she wants to fill out her bum a little without putting on more weight, cosmetic surgery might just be her best bet. Unfortunately, the only way to get a bigger bum without surgery is to put on weight – and you never know where it’s going to end up!”
Why Surgery Abroad?
People have been going abroad for surgery for years, and the overseas industry just continues to grow. Maybe it’s because it’s cheaper, maybe it’s because it sounds exotic, but it could also be the fact that it is a safe and viable option.
There are always horror stories – of course there are – although most appear to be extreme cases that have become tales used to win UK consumers into staying on these shores. With some proper research and knowledge on your side, you’ll be ready to take that trip abroad for surgery. With the media’s inclination for sensationalising everything, you’ll be happy to learn that surgery abroad is not the nightmare some make it out to be. On the whole, the service is very professional and the aftercare is excellent.
There a few things you can do to empower yourself before surgery abroad, but there’s probably one thing to ask yourself above all other considerations: ‘Is surgery abroad right for me?’ No matter what the credentials of the clinic are, and no matter how much you want to have the procedure done; if you can’t cope with being away from home, and the thought of leaving your family at home distresses you, undergoing surgery abroad might not be the right option for you.
