Close to the deltoid muscles, the pectoral muscles are muscular sections that are located in the portions of the chest. These muscles contribute to the bulk of the chest muscles in both sexes. The entire pectoral muscle is divided into both pectoral major and pectoral minor. The pectoral minor is thin stretch of muscles that lied underneath to the pectoral major.
Functions performed: The pectoral muscles perform a wide variety of functions. These muscles play a pivotal role in pushing the arms forward. The downward and medial arm movement of the arm is also restricted by these muscles. The muscles also cover the upper front chest portions.
The response of the pectoral muscles is inadequate in some individuals. The chest may have excess fat accumulation and the chest may be drooping. Cosmetic procedures like pectoral shaping are ideal for these cases. These surgical methods help to give a more precise definition to the shape and structure of these regions. As a result, the patient can have a more muscular and masculine appearance. Pectoral implants can be surgically introduced into the chest portions. These implants are mostly made of silicone material. A wide range of implants in different sizes and shapes are available to suit the individual requirements.
