Breast Implants for Men?

by Mark J. Hing

A lot of us have probably heard the story of gambler, Brian Zembic, who got 38C breast implants on a $100,000 bet. He won the bet, the money, and even kept his breast implants. However, if you thought that he was the only non-transgendered man willing to get breast implant surgery, you’d be wrong. The fastest growing plastic surgery for men is pectoral implants. It goes to show that what happens in Vegas doesn’t necessarily stay in Vegas.

“Pec” implants are still a relatively rare procedure, but it’s becoming more common than ever before. In 2006, cosmetic surgeons performed 409 pectoral implant surgeries, a small number, but a 99% increase from the year before. Perhaps in time, pectoral implants for men might be just as popular as breast augmentation for women!

There are various reasons why pec implants might be on the rise, but plastic surgeons jokingly referrer to it as the “Mathew McConaughey” factor, based, of course, on McConaughey’s chiseled physique and his uncanny ability to appear shirtless at all times. Unlike breast implants, pectoral implants are made from solid silicone to more accurately mimic the look and feel of solid muscle. Pectoral implants, however, do not improve the definition of muscles, they just add bulk. The pectoral implant is placed directly beneath the pec muscle to simply add size. For definition of pectoral muscles, exercise is still required…sorry, guys.

Some men no matter how hard they work out never achieve the physique they desire. Pectoral implants just might be the missing piece to the puzzle. Their pecs still might not look like Mathew MaConaughey’s, but it allows them confidence and peace of mind, at least, where their pectorals are concerned.
