Struggling To Build Your Chest Muscles? Consider Pectoral Implants

By: Dr. Angelo Cuzalina


The pectorals are among the most challenging muscles for people to build. While any person might have an easy time producing defined muscles through regular exercise, the pectorals may still look too shallow or weak. But you don’t have to struggle with those muscles looking thin, as you can use pectoral implants to boost your appearance. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Angelo Cuzalina and the team at Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK can help you achieve the look you deserve.

What are pectoral implants?

As the name suggests, pectoral implants are for people with undeveloped pectoral muscles. The implants can correct imbalances or poor developments in the region.

An implant uses a solid rubber compound commonly used in the human body. Most pectoral implants are made from a solid form of silicone compounds that can be shaped to look like pectoral muscles.  The material does not have the potential to leak like most breast implants because the curing process for pectoral implants creates an implant that is solid through and through but has the consistency or firmness of a typical human muscle.

The implants produce a fuller and potential more athletic appearance around the pectoral region. The muscles will protrude slightly and can match with the other muscles you’ve developed. The design creates an even look that can help patients look sexier and healthier.

How are pectoral implants placed?

A pectoral implant is inserted by a surgical incision inside the upper arm or armpit. The exact location will vary, but Dr. Cuzalina will ensure the incision is in the most hidden area possible.

A surgical pocket is created by Dr. Cuzalina using endoscopic and other specialized instruments to assure the best possible position for the new sterile pectoral implant.

The size is based on pre operative measurements and discussion with Dr. Cuzalina on goals and realistic outcomes as well as risk.  After this personalized size and shaped implant is placed in the pocket, closure of the incision is perfomred in layers.  The sutures will dissolve after a w1-2 weeks or can be removed by the surgeon after enough time and healing. 

You should be ready to return to relatively normal activities in about a week or two on average, although the timeframe will vary by patient and certain extremely vigorous activities may need to be avoided for up to 6 weeks.  Regardless of the timing, you’ll need to avoid strenuous physical activity right after the procedure.

Are pectoral implants for everyone?

Our experts at Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK love helping our patients with pectoral implants. But we also recognize that not everyone can benefit from these implants.

Your body will respond well to pectoral implants if you are in good health and have enough skin elasticity to handle the implants. Excess fat in the area may require removal to further enhance your results.

You could also use pectoral implants if you’ve undergone a substantial amount of weight loss. A person who has lost plenty of weight over the years for any reason might benefit from implants, as they can correct some degree of sagging in the pectoral area following the weight loss.
