Pectoral augmentation — or “pec implants” — adds definition and contour to your chest. It can be used as:
- A reconstructive surgery after an injury or illness
- To combat lackluster results in the gym
- As a female-to-male gender confirmation surgery
Successful pec augmentation uses a silicone gel implant to extend the depth of your muscle so it appears more chiseled and defined.
This surgery focuses on your upper chest where your pectoral muscles are, right over your breastbone. The pectoralis major is a fan-shaped muscle that overlaps the tissue over your heart and part of your rib cage and extends back toward your armpit.
How Much Does it Cost?
The average cost in the United States is $9,300. In Colombia, the procedure is 30-50% less.
