Various technologies can be applied to help reinforce post-surgical skin retraction. These may include plasma, radio-frequency, and ultrasound treatments.
In addition to aesthetic therapies, patients can improve their overall results by toning up their chest and shoulder muscles. Men with better muscle tone will have a better definition in their result, and as they tend to have a better lymphatic drainage, will recover from surgery faster. Building muscle is best when done prior to surgery, however, can also be done after, but only after at least three weeks of recovery.
