As a bodybuilder, I see quite
a few patients who want some form of implant enlargement for a
particular lagging muscle group. The placement of pectoral implants
usually involves customizing existing implants to fit the contours of
each patient to produce a natural look that fits chest wall and
pectoralis dimensions. It is still possible to feel the implant, but tapering of the edges prevents palpable irregularities.

Male pectoral implants are fairly soft, although not as soft as female breast implants. How hard your chest feels after the surgery varies to some extent depending on how much of your own breast tissue there is covering the implant. The more tissue you have, the softer it will feel overall. If someone feels your chest looking for an implant, they may be able to feel it. With that being said, most men are quite happy after the surgery.
