Pectoral Implants

Reasons for Considering a Pectoral Implant

General Procedure

Pectoral Implants are different from a breast augmentation. During surgery, the tissue is raised to create an open pocket under the tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle.  Implants typically contain a saline solution (similar to saltwater) although in special cases the implants can contain a silicone gel.  Surgery typically lasts two hours and incisions tend to be in the armpit.
