About Pectoral Implants
Pectoral muscles, or “pecs,” are the visible muscles within the chest. For some men or parts of society, the pecs can represent masculinity. Even with a healthy diet or a regular exercise routine, some men have difficulty defining their chest muscles. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as age, genetics, injury, or a birth defect. However, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina is proud to offer pectoral implants, which increase the volume and contour of the pectoral muscles. With years of experience, triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Cuzalina has a precise and artistic technique when it comes to placing pectoral implants. Please call Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK to schedule an appointment and learn more about this innovative procedure.

"Dr. Cuzalina and his entire staff have been so incredible to me. I wish I could give more than just 5 stars. I’ve lost 135 pounds and they did my tummy tuck! Not only this, but they did it completely free to me after applying for Dr. Cuzalina’s complimentary surgery. Never once did I feel as if I was treated any differently than patients who paid. Each member of the staff was so incredibly kind, caring, and made sure to let me know they were there for me! They gave me their personal cell phone numbers to be able to access them outside of regular office hours if I had any issues. My stomach has never been flat my entire 23 years of life, and now it is thanks to Tulsa Surgical Arts! Down the line I hope to get skin removal on my arms and thighs as well, and I know without a shadow of a doubt I will be returning to their office when I can afford it. Thank you all so very much for changing my life. Words can’t describe how grateful I am for all of you."- S.H. / Google / Oct 20, 2020

Who Is a Candidate for Pectoral Implants?
If you want to undergo pectoral implant surgery, patients should be in good shape and prefer to enhance the appearance of their upper chest. This treatment is ideal for incredibly athletic patients, like bodybuilders. If you want to contour the appearance of your pecs, this treatment can help you achieve your goals. Additionally, for patients who have difficulty gaining pectoral muscle definition because of a birth defect, significant weight loss, injury, or a medical condition, this treatment can also address those issues.
Pectoral Implants Procedure Technique
Dr. Cuzalina performs pectoral surgery with general anesthesia, which helps you remain comfortable. After administering anesthesia, we make a small incision within your armpit and create a surgical pouch inside the pectoral muscle. Next, he carefully places the implant to enhance the appearance of your pectoral muscle. Prior to your surgery, we will discuss the different types of implants and select the best one for you. Once he has finished inserting the implant, your incision is closed with sutures, and our team will monitor you in the recovery area.
What to Expect with Pectoral Implants
After your pectoral augmentation, you can go home to recover on the same day. If you traveled from out of town, you may prefer our overnight guest suite, which takes the stress of trying to travel home or perform activities, such as changing bandages or going to the restroom by yourself. You will experience some soreness for the next couple of weeks, but over-the-counter medication and cold compresses can help reduce discomfort. In about a week, you can restart your normal activities. Please contact Tulsa Surgical Arts if you have any questions or severe symptoms, such as fever or breathing problems.
Pectoral Implants FAQ
Are the results of pectoral implants permanent?
While pectoral implants are designed to be long-lasting, they may not last a lifetime. Factors like aging, significant weight changes, or trauma can affect their appearance over time. Regular check-ups with Dr. Cuzalina are an excellent idea to ensure they remain in tip-top shape.
Who should not get pectoral implants?
Pectoral implants can significantly enhance the male chest's appearance, but they aren't for everyone. Men with health conditions like heart disease or uncontrolled diabetes may face heightened surgical risks. Active infections or a high body fat percentage could also hinder results. Smokers, given their impeded healing abilities, should reconsider or quit well before surgery. It's also vital for candidates to harbor realistic expectations. Those with a history of chest surgeries or blood clotting disorders, or who aren't ready for post-op care commitments, might find the procedure less than ideal.
Are there any side effects or potential complications to pectoral implant surgery?
As with any surgery, potential complications can include infection, bleeding, or unfavorable scarring. There might be some temporary numbness, swelling, or bruising. Following aftercare instructions and attending follow-up visits is crucial to minimize these risks.
