YOUR Pectoral implants IN TUNISIA ALL INCLUSIVE
When strength training exercises are not enough to achieve a satisfactory cosmetic result, then the most effective surgical solution to have a muscular chest is pectoral implants that will give the chest a more masculine and more athletic appearance. This type of intervention is suitable for both young men whose torso is insufficiently developed as mature men whose chest collapsed.
IndicationsMore and more men are concerned about their appearance and go for cosmetic procedure to harmonize their bodies or to correct imperfections of the face:
rhinoplasty(nose surgery), abdominoplasty(belly surgery) and pectoral implant placement are among the most required procedures by men.
Pectoral implant placement is usually undertaken by two type of patients: young men whose pectorals are not sufficiently developed, or middle-aged men suffering from a falling chest.
This procedure is indicated to patients who, despite physical efforts and despite bodybuilding sessions, cannot develop either the pectoralis major (lower part of the chest) or the small pectoral (upper part).
The prostheses will therefore give them that firm and muscular appearance in a permanent way.
What are the implants made of?The pectoral implant consists of a smooth envelope filled with a cohesive silicone gel. The shape and size may be selected to be adapted to the morphology of the patient. Generally, the pectoral implants have either a rectangular or a rounded shape of parallelogram.
Before procedurePre-surgery consultation with the surgeon will allow him to make an assessment of the patient's needs and its overall health. The thorax will be measured and implants will be selected to be in full compliance with patient’s morphology (size, volume, projection). A complete check-up and a blood test should be conducted.
Some precautions must be taken by the patient, including quit smoking one month before the procedure, as well as stopping aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs 10 days before the procedure.
During procedureThe procedure is performed under general anaesthesia, and lasts between one hour and a half to two hours. The surgeon begins by making an incision of about five cm which will be located in the hollow of the armpit. This location makes the scar well-hidden and difficult to detect after the procedure.
The implant is inserted under the pectoralis muscle so that the muscular function is not blocked.
Finally, the surgeon makes the sutures with resorbable thread, before putting the bandage on the torso. The duration of hospitalization is usually one or two nights.
After procedureWearing a thoracic compression sheath is recommended for at least 2 to 4 weeks to stabilize and maintain the pectoral implants in place.
Convalescence lasts an average of one week. Work can be resumed after a period that varies between 10 to 15 days. Sport can be resumed after two or three months, depending on the general condition of the patient and according to the intensity of the sport practiced.
Consultations will be organized with the surgeon following the procedure so that the surgeon can confirm the good progress of the operation and control the healing progress.
ResultsAppearance change can be appreciated from the first days after the procedure. The torso is more bulging; the pectorals are well drawn and more prominent. However, it is necessary to wait between 4 and 6 weeks to be able to appreciate the final result which is permanent and natural.
Pectoral prostheses may be worn for life, but they may also be removed if the patient wishes.
Placement of pectoral implants : what are the alternativesAnother technique of cosmetic surgery can be considered to sculpt the pectorals without going for implants placements: lipofilling.
The procedure consists of injecting fat into the pectorals to give them more volume (but without the muscular effect). This excess fat is directly taken from the patient who will benefit from the procedure.
