A pectoral muscle undeveloped leaves a child image of the chest. To improve it, we can use filler or pectoral prosthesis. Initially this process was reserved for purely reconstructive cases like Poland’s syndrome.
Today, pectoral prosthesis are placed in the following circumstances:
- If the patient is not satisfied with the size of his pecs because it is too small relative to his body
- If any of them have an asymmetry
- If the continuous effort with prolonged exercise routines has failed to visible results
We advise to put absorbable hyaluronic acid filler when the patient wants:
- Fix a small volumetric defect
- Want to try how it would be a definitive implant.
Looking for the faint scar as possible, the surgeon realizes a short incision in the armpit; through this incision is created a pocket under the pectoral muscle where the implant is placed. The procedure itself takes about an hour. After surgery the patient must wear a compression bandage is removed the next day and replaced with a special belt that enables us to keep the prosthesis in the desired location.
The hospital stay is ambulatory, the stitches are removed after 10-12 days. The implants produce very rewarding and final results.
