For centuries, the ideal male form has featured a strong chest with well-defined pectoralis muscles and the absence of excessive breast tissue. Unfortunately, not all men can develop this physique on their own. One of Dr. Marc DuPéré's specialties, pectoral augmentation, is available from only a few North American plastic surgeons. Dr. DuPéré offers pectoral implants for Toronto men with gynecomastia (overdeveloped male breasts) and/or the inability to develop the muscle mass necessary for a well-defined chest.
Dr. DuPéré performs chest augmentation to help Toronto men look and feel more masculine. Request a consultation with Dr. Marc DuPéré or call our office at (416) 929-9800.

Many men desire a fuller chest but lack the time required to build their chest muscles. Excess fat and skin can hide muscle definition, and some men are simply not genetically predisposed for well-developed pectoralis muscles. Pectoral augmentation improves the appearance of the male chest by:
Abdominal and body etching is often paired with pectoral augmentation for men who want more definition in their entire torso.
Dr. DuPéré uses silicone implants for chest augmentation. These implants come in a variety of styles and shapes and are approved by both the FDA and Health Canada. Silicone implants are soft but solid, so there is no risk of rupture or leakage.
Dr. DuPéré inserts the implants beneath the pectoralis muscles via a small incision inside the armpit. This placement creates a smooth, natural appearance, and the incision location camouflages the scar. Performed under general anesthesia, pectoral implant surgery takes approximately 2 to 2.5 hours.
Most men go home the same day unless other procedures are being performed. If needed, we can arrange a supervised overnight stay in our surgical center.
To promote proper healing, patients should initiate walking and stretching exercises on the day of their procedure. Patients should avoid exercise for 8 weeks, and upper chest exercise for 12 weeks. Most men can return to desk work after 2 weeks.
Chest augmentation patients wear drains for 5 to 7 days after surgery. Dr. DuPéré removes stitches after 7 to 10 days. Patients also wear a compression garment, easily hidden under the clothes, for 3 to 4 weeks.
Every procedure comes with some inherent risks. Although serious complications are very rare, Dr. DuPéré educates all of his patients about potential risks.
Those risks can include scarring, opening of the wound, implant exposure, discomfort for 1 to 4 weeks, bruising around the surgical sites, loss of sensation over the chest skin, and rarely of the nipples, palpable and/or visible implant edges of implants, possibly alleviated with fat injection, temporary superficial vein clotting (superficial thrombophlebitis) over the chest or upper arm (this is not dangerous and would improve over 3 to 4 weeks with anti-inflammatories), asymmetry, fluid accumulation (seroma and hematomas), infection (extremely rare), bleeding, nerve and vessel injury (a risk with any surgery), skin necrosis (possibly treatable with wound care), risks related to liposuction (dimpling, irregularity, fat embolism, excessive or insufficient fat removal, cardiovascular issues), sub-optimal fat "take" if fat transfer is performed, implant migration, capsular contracture and general anesthesia-related issues.
