Having well-defined pectoral muscles are essential to a balanced body. Men with contoured chests are often thought to be more attractive and healthier than men with enlarged breasts, and a chiseled chest contour is a mark of masculinity and power.

Improving the appearance of the chest is one of the primary reasons that men turn to plastic surgery. Enhancing the chest can be accomplished in one of two ways, depending on your concern. For some men, dissatisfaction with their upper body contour stems from their inability to sculpt the muscles they want; for others, discontent arises from the presence of gynecomastia. 

What Is Gynecomastia?

The curvature of the underlying ribs determines the male chest shape. There should be a uniform thickness of tissue throughout the chest area. Gynecomastia is the accumulation of excess glandular tissue above the pectoral muscles that result in excessively large breasts. The condition can result from hormonal changes, heredity, or obesity, and it can occur during adolescence or adulthood. Gynecomastia is fairly common, with more than half of men enduring some level of the condition.

How Can Gynecomastia Surgery Enhance Chest Contours?

Gynecomastia surgery is performed to correct enlarged male breasts by surgically removing the unwanted tissue and skin in the chest. In cases where your enlarged breasts are primarily the result of excess fatty tissue, liposuction techniques can be used.

You may seek gynecomastia surgery to rectify underdeveloped, asymmetrical, or otherwise deformed chest contours. This procedure offers immediate results that only improve with time.

How Can Pectoral Implants Enhance the Appearance of Pectoral Muscles?

While some men struggle with too much fullness, others are unable to attain it. Many men spend hours a day at the gym, doing countless repetitions of bench presses and pushups. Unfortunately, not every man who attempts a chiseled chest can achieve it. 

For those who cannot, pectoral implants can help.

During this procedure, form-stable silicone implants are placed within the chest to create the appearance of defined muscle. The goal of the procedure is to make your chest proportional to the rest of your physique.

Is Male Plastic Surgery for Me?

Many men are unaware of just how easy it is to sculpt their chests with plastic surgery. Whether you have too much or not enough in the way of chest fullness, there is a plastic surgery procedure that is right for you. 

Men interested in plastic surgery should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations of their results.
