Yes, your pectoralis major muscles will "grow", despite having implants in place. Best wishes.

I think your muscle can still grow after pec implants, but the implant may alter the ability to build muscle. As a bodybuilder, I like to make fairly certain that the individual has gotten as far as possible before considering the pectoral implants.

Muscle growth after pectoral implants

Pectoral implants are generally placed under the pectoral muscle. Once you recover, usually after about 4 weeks, you can start exercising including working out your chest. You can bulk up your pectoral muscle the same way you did before the surgery.
