Pectoral augmentation is a surgical procedure for men that involves the injection of fat with a refined surgical technique that enlarges the pectoralis muscles and gives the chest a more masculine contour. Despite exercise, genetics play a huge role in the gaining of muscle in the pectoral area for some men. This procedure is perfect to create more definition in the upper body and to improve the self-esteem and appearance of patients.
What does the procedure look like?
This procedure involves injecting fat obtained from liposuction from other areas of the body. Dr. Campos-Leon then skillfully deposits the purified fat in the pectoral area. This results in more volume and the appearance of muscle.
What is recovery like?
After this procedure, a compression garment is necessary for the first week of recovery. There may be some pain that will dissipate with time. It is important to refrain from exercise and strenuous activities. Dr. Campos-Leon will discuss the recovery procedure in detail during consultation and after the procedure.
