Male breast enhancement a growing trend
October 27, 2010
Though breast enlargement may be thought of as a cosmetic surgery specific to women, recent trends suggest that a similar treatment is growing in popularity among men. Several doctors have reported an increase in patients seeking pectoral implants to improve both the size and muscular tone of their chest.
The procedure generally results in minimal scarring, and is similar to other popular male treatments such as calf and bicep implants. Recovery general takes a few weeks and the implants themselves are fundamentally different than those used on women, as they are made of solid silicone.
Plastic surgeons report that healthy men who like working out at the gym are looking to enhance the shape of their chest for a more masculine appearance. The implants help them achieve their desired physical look along with regular exercise and a good diet.
Men who are considering pectoral implants should schedule a consultation with a surgeon who is a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
