About Male Implants
Despite long hours of strength training at the gym and eating a healthy diet full of protein, some men are unable to develop their muscles to a desirable size. Implant procedures at Y Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery for men can include calf augmentation, and pectoral augmentation. Our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, can use male implants to correct body asymmetry, such as calves that are different sizes from a birth defect or a medical condition like polio.
Implants can also be used for the face. For instance, many men also find chin augmentation to be helpful in creating a stronger, more masculine jawline. Male implant surgeries use silicone implants that are shaped based on the patient’s body and goals to look natural while adding muscle mass and definition. Dr. Yalif can discuss all of the options for male implant surgeries at his office in Woodstock or Roswell, GA during a private consultation.
The best candidates for male augmentation surgery:
- Have tried diet and exercise
- Want to enhance or define their muscles
- Want to fix a physical defect or body asymmetry
- Have overall good health
- Have realistic expectations

"Dr. Y and his staff are incredible. First class from initial meeting to my final release appointment. I’ve worked for a Plastic Surgeon, and have gone to several in the Atlanta area. Dr. Yalef by far surpasses them all, hands down. Dr. Yalef bedside manner, compassion are the best in Atlanta. Dr. Yalef’s Team are equally skilled in their professionalism, ease of their care & compassion for you. Dr. Y thank you from the bottom of my heart for my new look! Love you and your Team!!!????"- K.E. / Facebook / Oct 16, 2017
"Dr Yalif and his staff are A+ in my book. From the very first visit (May 2017) until now (October 2017) they all were professional, attentive,caring, truthful, and accommodating. He did a wonderful job on my necklift. And continues to care for me during the healing process. Before you decide on a plastic surgeon, you owe it to yourself to consult with Dr. Yalif."- S.W. / Google / Oct 16, 2017
"I was very scared to my appointment... crying to my husband scared, my injury is very tender and painful. Dr. Y has such great bedside manner, he was gentle and handled my hand injury with care....his staff were so kind, they even held my baby. I would highly recommend him. I am not scared of my next appointment, at all."- W.D. / Facebook / Oct 12, 2017
"I have been seeing Dr. Y for several years now and am always pleased with my results. Since beginning treatments with Dr. Y I have moved to the Nashville area but still commute to the Alpharetta location for my regular appointments because Dr. Y has given me honest input on what I need and is light-handed in his approach. I look forward to getting my mommy-makeover done here as well."- D.T. / Google / Oct 09, 2017
What to Expect
Patients may have one augmentation surgery or a combination, depending on their specific needs and goals. Most implant surgeries are done with the patient under local or general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery, but some patients may need to spend the night for observation.
- Calf Implants: An incision is made in the back of the knee and then the implant is placed in a pocket either below the fascia or within the calf muscle.
- Pectoral Implants: An incision is made in the armpit and the implant is placed under the pectoral muscles and above the ribs.
- Chin Implants: An incision is made under the chin or inside the lip, then a pocket is created in the facial tissue where the implant will be placed.
The recovery period after implant surgery will vary depending on the location of the implant, but the surgeon will go over aftercare instructions, including medications, compression garments, and activity restrictions. Final results will be visible 1 – 3 months after the surgery when the swelling subsides and the implants settle into their final position. Implants can be long lasting, but patients should follow the surgeon’s care instructions and have their implants checked regularly for infections or leaks.
