The surgical procedure consists of Surgical increase the size (volume) and projection (size) of the breast through the use of implants or prosthesis, specially designed for that purpose.

The Breast Implants have been developed for more than 20 years, obtaining a wide margin of clinic safety.

The main indication for operation is the lack of male breast volume (Male Breast Hypotrophy).

How the Male Breast Enlargement is performed

The surgical procedure is performed under general anesthesia in a certified Operating Room, under rigorous standards of asepsis and antisepsis, in a Plastic Surgery Ambulatory Unit properly authorized, and endowed  with all the equipment and trained personnel to ensure the success of surgery as well as the complete and absolute safety of the patient. The external approach is through trans-axillary incision.

The Male Breast Implants must be placed behind the muscle. The Implants must have anatomical shape, smooth outer shell, textured shell or microtextured shell (most recommended is textured shell), silicone gel filled (most recommended is high cohesive silicon gel fill and form-stable), also can be low, moderate or high profile (most recommended is high profile for the best aesthetic result).

Usually the operation lasts about 1 hour and commonly it´s practiced on outcome basis.

Possible Complications

Among the complications that can occur in a very small number of patients, are the following:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Dehiscence of the surgical incisions
  • Prosthesis Dislocation (ectopic location)
  • Capsular Contracture
  • Muscle contracture
  • Prosthesis Extrusion (total or partial exposure of the  prosthesis through surgical incision)
  • Prosthesis rejection

However, with proper care and control, evolution tends to be very satisfactory.


The recovery is fast and painless, with satisfactory result.

The patients can make their normal lives after the first week, but must wait 8 weeks for exposure to the Sun, heat, go to beaches or physical exercises.

The pain or discomfort is mild and easily manageable with common painkillers.

Without complications, the final result is excellent, permanent and very rewarding.
