Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Armando Soto performs pectoral implant surgery for men who desire a stronger chest contour. This procedure is ideal for men who are naturally very flat-chested or who suffer from Poland’s syndrome. However, men who have a fairly chiseled and defined chest also frequently receive implants to further enhance their masculine physique. Dr. Soto consults with every patient to discuss their aesthetic goals and needs to customize their pec augmentation treatment plan at Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery in Orlando, Florida. Once silicone implants are formed and sculpted to the specific desires of the patient, they are inserted to create a fuller, sharper chest. Recovery time ranges from 2-6 weeks, but results are long-lasting.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017
"Absolutely the worse customer service, I had an appointment and tried to email the office to make a change because I wasn’t feeling good sick in bed. This appointment costs me $100 dollars, and I never heard back. After emailing a few more times no response and finally on my last try a person named Trish called me back. I told her I have been emailing back from emails I have been receiving from their office. She informed me that those emails aren’t responded to because they are just announcements about services. How was I suppose to know this? There is no reference to not replying to these mails. No suggestion it’s only advertisement nothing. My emails never ever were kicked back either to me. So when I wanted to reschedule they wanted to charge me another $100 dollars. No way not paying $200 dollars for something that will make him $1000’s."- T.C. / Google / Aug 27, 2021
"I had a lower body lift done by Dr. Soto five months ago and I am extremely happy with the results. It has improved my quality of life in a profound way.

He and his staff are always available if you need assistance or advice. He is hand down the best plastic surgeon"- T.M. / Google / Aug 05, 2021
"I cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Soto and his staff. I had a breast augmentation done in March and I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Soto and his staff were very welcoming, professional, and helpful throughout the entire process. They truly care about any concerns i may have had. Dr. Soto explained every detail of my procedure putting my mind at ease. My breast augmentation came out great and i recovered much more quickly than I expected. My results and experience far exceeded my expectations. Thanks Dr. Soto!"- G.W. / Google / Aug 02, 2021

Prior to the procedure, Dr. Soto will discuss the different sizes and shapes of implants that will best determine a patient’s aesthetic goals and desires. Once the implant size is determined and the patient is safely placed under general anesthesia, a small incision will be made in the armpit region for implant insertion. The incision is generally 1-2 inches wide, which allows for quick healing. Surgical tools are then used to create a “pocket” in between the chest muscles for implant insertion. Once the implant is securely placed, the incision is sutured and the process is repeated to the opposite side.
Silicone Vs. Fat transfer
Silicone implants are available in various shapes and sizes, which means there are plenty of options that will suit a patient’s desired size and needs. Customized silicone implants can also be individually created for patients who have an asymmetrical or deformed chest. However, fat transfers may be an option for patients who prefer a more natural method. Dr. Soto will be able to determine if a patient is an ideal candidate for a fat transfer during their consultation.
Generally, a pectoral implant procedure takes 1 – 2 hours and upon completion, patients are safely escorted to our on-site recovery room for further monitoring. During this time, a breathable compression garment is gently placed around the chest to ease swelling and discomfort. After a short observation, patients are released and encouraged to refrain from vigorous activities like running and heavy lifting. Typically, the incisions heal within 2 – 6 weeks and scars are barley visible and easily concealed since they are in the armpit region.

Pectoral Implants FAQs
Combine With Other Procedures?
Pectoral implantation can be combined with other cosmetic procedures. Most men decide to combine pectoral implant surgery with vaser liposuction to define and improve their chest, abdomen and love handles. However, combining pectoral implant surgery with other procedures will increase the cost of the surgery.
Can I Workout?
Generally, patients can return to routine exercise and other strenuous activities 2-3 weeks after surgery. Incisions in the armpits need the appropriate time to heal so bruising and swelling can subside. Wearing a compression garment can help speed up the recovery process.
