During pectoral augmentation, implants are placed
beneath the chest muscles.
Treated with Pectoral Augmentation:
Pectoral augmentation may be performed in cases of
small pectoral muscles.
Weight training to define pectoral muscles is a
non-surgical alternative to pectoral augmentation. There are no comparable
surgical alternatives to the procedure.
with Pectoral Augmentation:
Pectoral augmentation may be performed under local
anesthetic with heavy sedation. It can also be performed under general
anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware
during the procedure.
Complications from Pectoral Augmentation:
Possible risks following pectoral augmentation
include infection, bleeding, nerve damage and a negative reaction to the
anesthesia. It is also possible for the implants to be asymmetrical or to
become displaced. Implant rejection is also a possibility.
from Pectoral Augmentation:
Total recovery from pectoral augmentation takes
three to four weeks.
