A physical characteristic perceived as more masculine, and sought out by many men through exercise, is a toned and contoured look to the chest and pectoral muscles. However, your unique body composition and genetics may make it more challenging to achieve this goal with diet and exercise alone, adversely impacting your confidence as a result. Pectoral etching in Houston offers a minimally invasive approach for contouring and enhancing your chest muscle definition.
After the two-week recovery period, you could enjoy your surgically enhanced chest for many years if you maintain a stable weight. However, there are a few physical qualifications that we look for in patients in order to ensure the most attractive results. Discover the Deigni difference by contacting our office and scheduling a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Olivier Deigni.
Pectoral etching surgery in Houston uses traditional liposuction methods to remove surplus fat from a patient’s chest at strategic points, specifically around the pectoral muscles. However, unlike traditional fat-removal procedures, pectoral etching leaves some amount of surplus fat tissue on the chest. Dr. Deigni reshapes and contours the remaining fat above the pectoral muscles into a shape that appears to enhance visible muscle definition.
Since the operation uses minor incisions for removing and redistributing abdominal fat, the incisions typically heal independently, and there is little visible scarring. Further, the surgery has a substantially shorter recovery period than more invasive body contouring procedures, usually lasting up to two weeks. Some men combine pectoral etching with pectoral augmentation surgery, using implants to further contour and enhance the chest.
After the procedure, a patient’s pectoral muscle definition is notably more apparent, giving the impression of a more muscular appearance. The surgery could also reduce male chest asymmetry and create tighter, firmer-looking skin on the chest for additional improvements.
The primary motivation for most pectoral etching patients is to flatten and contour their chest when exercise, diet, and other methods are unsuccessful. For instance, a sagging and deflated look to the chest from age and weight loss often prompts men to seek out pectoral shaping.
In many cases, men choose this procedure over other contouring procedures due to the minimally invasive technique that reduces risks and recovery time, yet still produces remarkable results. Pectoral etching is also a preferable treatment for some men because the effects can sometimes be permanent, depending on if a patient stays at a stable weight afterward.
Another essential consideration for pectoral etching candidates in Houston is excess fat on the chest that creates breast-like mounds, which cause a man considerable emotional distress, embarrassment, or self-consciousness. After the procedure, patients often report having considerably better body image and self-confidence, which can then positively impact their relationships.
Due to age, genetics, and lifestyle habits, some men struggle to create visible chest muscle definition with the usual health regimen. When a lack of pectoral definition is due to excess fat accumulation on the chest, the best solution is pectoral etching in Houston. The procedure is similar to liposuction for body contouring but goes further by reshaping the remaining fat to mimic pectoral definition.
Eligible patients are men who fail to see pectoral definition improvements with exercise, despite having good skin laxity and a healthy, stable weight.
