Male Breast Enhancement

Male Breast Enhancement

During a common form of male breast surgery, a cosmetic surgeon inserts male breast implants. This male breast augmentation differs from the use of transgender implants--male breast enhancement using male breast implants is designed to contour and define the chest/pectoral region rather than build up women-like breasts.

Patients who undergo male breast enlargement (or male breast development) have typically found it troublesome in the past to achieve definition or bulk in the pectoral region solely from exercise. Some patients request a male breast implant for the purposes of correcting development- or injury-related abnormalities in or around the pectoral region.

As opposed to women breast implant surgery, male breast enlargement makes use of solid silicone breast implants that are fitted under the pectoral muscle wall. During male breast implant surgery, the breast implant plastic surgeon makes an underarm incision in which to insert the under-muscle breast implant. The outpatient male breast surgery requires one to two hours.
