You Can Still Bodybuild With Pec Implants

While your muscles may be affected, you will still be able to develop them even with pec implants in place. The implants are custom shaped to achieve the most natural-looking result.

Yes, after an appropriate period of time of rest/recovery, you will be able to return to weightlifting.

 Best wishes.

As a bodybuilder, I tend to see both male and female individuals who want to bring up a particular lagging bodypart. I would have to see pictures to see what may be appropriate for you. Also consider that the ability to build the muscle after augmentation is affected, but no one knows how much.
