A chiseled chest contour is a top desire amongst many men. This particular feeling enables men to be confident in their appearance both with and without clothes. While some men spend countless hours at the gym, lifting weights, doing cardio, and watching everything they eat, that isn’t always enough to achieve the defined, masculine chest they genuinely want to achieve. Unfortunately, heredity and conditions such as gynecomastia can get in the way and prevent men from showing off their chiseled bodies.
Over recent years, more men are turning to plastic surgery. Cosmetic enhancements are no longer perceived as something that only women can benefit from, and many men are discovering that surgery is the final ingredient to confidence-enhancing bodies.
If You Desire Reduction . . .
For many, dissatisfaction with their chest contour is due to excess fat on and around the chest that can’t be remedied with exercise. More severe cases of this excess is a condition known as gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is characterized by the presence of excess breast tissue and fat in male breasts. This condition can be detrimental to the self-esteem of men of all ages, as gynecomastia can affect anyone from teenagers upwards. Breasts have always been associated with a feminine contour, and while women desire an adequate amount of breast tissue, men do not. Gynecomastia can be caused by several reasons, from hormonal changes to medication to weight fluctuations. And oddly enough, one of the most common reasons for the excess of breast tissue is steroid use. Even though many men use steroids as a way to increase the appearance of a defined and masculine musculature, it can backfire and lead to the presence of enlarged male breasts. Gynecomastia surgery is performed in one of two ways: through liposuction or surgical excision. Liposuction is performed on the breast or surrounding chest areas if the enlargement is due to excess fat. Unfortunately, if gynecomastia is caused by excess breast tissue, liposuction cannot remove this. Tissue can only be removed through surgical excision, where incisions are placed around the areola to lessen the size and appearance of the breast. If necessary, excess, loose skin is removed after either liposuction or excision. A combination of procedures is not uncommon.
If You Desire Augmentation . . .
For others, chest confidence issues stem from the inability to gain chest muscle. Unfortunately, some men’s genetics don’t allow them to gain muscle no matter how much they work at it. If this is the case, pectoral implants can give the illusion of a sculpted and masculine chest contour without the stress of lifting endless weights. Pectoral implants made of a solid silicone material are inserted through incisions made in the natural creases of the chest or around the areola to reveal a chiseled chest.
Although exercise and a proper diet may not have been enough to achieve your desired chest contour, they are necessary to continue after your procedure to maintain your results.
