Growing Trend in Plastic Surgery for Men

Traditional forms of plastic surgery include procedures like the enhancement of breasts or the reshaping of the nose. However, the evolution of modern cosmetic surgery has meant more options for those looking to enhance their look. Now, there are a couple of new trends taking the world by storm, each one appealing to a particular gender.

Pectoral Implants

Hours spent working out at the gym are no longer the only way men can get bigger chest muscles. Pectoral implants are available for men and plenty seem to be taking full advantage of this procedure. The number of pectoral implants in the United States surged by 208% from 2013 to 2014. Those numbers are expected to take off and climb even higher by 2016.

The ideal candidate for a pectoral implant is already in good physical shape as it is not a procedure intended to produce transformations of a very drastic nature. Some patients decide on pectoral implants in addition to gynecomastia corrective surgery. This process is done by taking an actual solid silicone implant and inserting it underneath the pectoralis muscle in the chest. This implant is totally different than implants used for female breast enhancement. Healing time varies between individuals but men are generally able to resume work by a week or less and exercise by around two weeks.  Cosmetic surgery has traditionally been considered an option only for women, although more and more men are joining that contingent, partly because of pectoral implants.
