Chest muscles "receding" after surgery
« on: May 26, 2009, 01:37:34 AM »
After my surgery last week Ive noticed my chest looks almost concave.  Do the chest muscles "deflate" from the trauma to the area? Or was my chest just that flat?  Ive noticed a little definition returning(now 10 days after) Has anyone else noticed this?

From what I have read no muscles are suppose to "deflate".  Can you post a pic of the concave you describe?

If you stop exercising a muscle group it will decrease in size and become less pronounced very quickly. As you have just had surgery on your chest I presume you have stopped exercising the pectoral group, thus the muscle is not as pronounced as it was prior to surgery.

Also you were used to viewing your chest with all the fat and gland being there, this has now been removed so it is going to look very different.

On the subject of craters etc just use the search facility, there are lots of posts about this, and a lot of this depends on the skill of your surgeon and how much was taken out.

In the majority of cases things do even out over time, remember it takes a long time to fully recover from this type of surgery.

its not a crater, it just looks as if there is NO definition there at all, but in the psat couple days it has been getting better.  There was muscle there before the surgery, I am thin so it was easy to distinguish between the fat and the muscle.  Like I said, it seems to be getting better

Do u think Spamming dips and other lower chest exercise can make crater looks better?
