Pectoral Implants

Pectoral implants are really the male equivalent of female breast implants. The intention of the operation is to enhance the appearance of the male chest muscles by placing solid silicone implants on top of the pectoral muscles and beneath the skin. These chest muscles are often referred to as pecs or pec muscles and are the muscles that normally bulk up and increase in mass when a male exercises.

The main difference between a pectoral augmentation and a breast augmentation is that muscle is not separated from its attachments to the rib cage or breast bone as they are during a breast implant procedure, so in this regard it is a considerably less surgically invasive operation.
