I can’t see my pecs. Will implants fix this?

Aug 12, 2019 | Men

Regular exercise and weight lifting are not the only answers to having a well-defined upper torso. Pectoral implants are becoming a popular solution for men looking to "bulk up" when hours at the gym are not giving them the results they need. For some men, no amount of exercising effectively gives their pectoral muscles definition, so they are turning to cosmetic help with pectoral implants. Pectoral implants look natural and can give men more chest definition which is why this cosmetic procedure is on the rise, especially for men in Beverly Hills.

Dr. Jaime Schwartz in Beverly Hills offers pectoral implant surgery to men who are wanting more definition in their upper torso. A highly-regarded, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Schwartz has a "patient-first" approach to his practice and is intently focused on patient care and safety. His extensive medical and surgical experience makes him one of the top cosmetic experts that men and women turn to in order to get the aesthetic results they desire. Here is some helpful information on how pectoral implants can give men the masculine definition they want for their upper body and how Dr. Schwartz can help.


Most men, especially in the Beverly Hills area, want a strong appearance to their upper body. A well-defined chest area has a strong impact on how masculine a man feels. When a man feels more confident, he tends to project this in his strength, health, athleticism, and overall attitude. For some men, an underdeveloped chest is due to a genetic trait so no amount of exercising or strength training will drastically change the way they look. Pectoral implants offer men a way to take charge of how they look by filling out this targeted area and looking more defined in their chest.


Pectoral implants in men are akin to a breast augmentation for women. Pectoral implants are designed to give men more definition and shape to their chest area, providing them with what can be described as a more athletic look. Some men have what is considered to be an asymmetrical chest. That means that one breast is larger than the other or there is a chest disfigurement due to an accident or birth defect. To help alleviate that, pectoral implants can give men a more symmetrical, well-proportioned look to their upper body. This low risk, fairly straightforward procedure, especially when performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Schwartz, can boost a man's self-confidence and give them amazing results.


Pectoral implants give a natural-looking enhancement to a man's chest. Dr. Schwartz offers this cosmetic procedure to healthy men in the Beverly Hills area who are in good shape but need help taking their chest area to the next level. During a consultation with Dr. Schwartz in his Beverly Hills office, various implant sizes and types will be considered. Pectoral implants are made of solid silicone that is soft and flexible to mimic the feel and look of muscles. The size and shape of the pec implant will be determined based on a man's aesthetic goals and body type. Dr. Schwartz will give his professional opinion on which pectoral implant device offers the most natural curve and shape to a man's existing chest muscles so they can get the look they are after.


This simple, safe cosmetic procedure typically takes about two hours. Dr. Schwartz will use his patented Schwartz Rapid Recovery method, which is a gentler form of general anesthesia called TIVA, allowing patients an easier recovery from sedation. A small incision is made in the armpit area so the pectoral implants can be inserted between the pectoralis muscles. This placement location allows for the pectoral implant to stay stationary so no movement or dislocation will occur. The incision is closed and repeated on the other side. Dr. Schwartz will ensure both sides look symmetrical once the implants have been placed in the appropriate location and that his patients obtain the more masculine-looking chest they wanted.


The results of pectoral implant surgery are almost instant for men. Some swelling and redness will occur after surgery and a compression garment may be provided to reduce post-op inflammation. As with all cosmetic procedures or surgeries, it is important to let your body heal properly. Make sure you have someone drive you home and is with you the first 24-48 hours. Most men can resume their regular exercise regime within 2-3 weeks but must refrain from chest related exercises or weight lifting for the first couple of months. Attending follow up appointments with Dr. Schwartz is important for the recovery period so you can enjoy the way your chest looks for years to come.

It is no surprise that more men in general are changing the way they look with the help of cosmetic surgery. Men who feel self-conscious when they are shirtless no longer have to feel that way with the help of pectoral implants. Some men spend hours at the gym and can't obtain the chest definition they want so utilizing the cosmetic procedure of pec implants can be the right solution. This low-risk surgical procedure can give men the masculine chest definition they need in order to feel better about how they look.

If you are considering pectoral implant surgery, finding the right plastic surgeon is the first step. Dr. Jaime Schwartz has helped men in the Beverly Hills area get the desired natural shape and curve to their chest area. Dr. Schwartz's surgical expertise and patient forward thinking will give his male patients the masculine aesthetic boost they need with the help of pectoral implants.
