Can Clavicle Reshaping Surgery and Pectoral Implants Be Done At The Same Time?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am a 42 year old male. I follow you on Instagram. I would like a consultation about my right clavicle. When I was 8 years old, my father had me fire a rifle that caused a greenstick fracture on my right clavicle. The callus makes a prominent bump as you can see in the pictures attached. I work out a lot, but there is asymmetry. I would like to know if it’s possible to fix the clavicle and add chest implants that would improve the appearance of the upper chest.

‘A: Clavicle Reshaping and pectoral implants can be done together. I suspect the bump is either a hyperostosis at the fracture line or  it developed a slight bend at the fracture site. Either way the bump can be likely be shaved. down/smoothed over without compromising the integrity of the clavicle. I would check a clavicle x-ray to have a full understanding of what the bump is.
