For transgender female patients, a male-to-female transformation often begins with transfeminine breast surgery, also known as MTF top surgery. This safe and effective breast enhancement procedure is specially designed to enhance breast size and shape in order to create a chest with a natural feminine appearance. Compared to hormonal therapy, breast augmentation delivers results that are immediately noticeable with no need for daily medication.
Cosmetic surgery is an excellent way for trans women to assert their gender identity. Many patients identify with the fact that they can lead a more authentic and fulfilling life with secondary sexual features that match how they feel on the inside.
Transgender breast augmentation accomplishes that with a surgery that feminizes the chest, allowing our patients to experience more freedom and a sense of congruency with their gender role. The surgeons at The Aesthetic Center can help you attain your cosmetic goals with MTF breast augmentation.
Our team of dedicated and knowledgeable surgeons has helped many transgender women achieve a more feminine bust with feminine augmentation mammoplasty. This surgical procedure is also known as MTF Top Surgery. Our goal is to enhance the chest so that it takes on a more feminine appearance. Depending on each patient’s unique cosmetic preferences and existing breast shape, the procedure may involve:
Each male-to-female breast augmentation is tailored to the patient’s needs. Typically, trans female patients see the best result by choosing under the muscle implants. Using a modern dual-plane surgical technique, our qualified chest reconstruction surgeons will create a pocket in the chest cavity that will fit implants of the desired size and shape.
Incision placement will be discussed prior to surgery. An inframammary incision that falls in the crease below the breast tends to produce the best cosmetic result since it is easiest to hide.
General anesthesia ensures a safe and comfortable experience. A combination of permanent and dissolvable sutures may be placed in the chest, providing support to the wound for an easy recovery. Compression garments may be used to reduce swelling for the first 1-2 weeks.
It is normal to experience marked swelling for several weeks following the procedure. The worst of the swelling will subside approximately 14-21 days post-op. The breasts may appear high on the chest at first, particularly with under muscle implants. It takes time for the chest muscles to relax. The breasts will settle into their final shape and position 6-12 months after surgery, with remarkable improvement visible at the 2-3 month mark.
