Male to female breast augmentation (MTF breast augmentation) at Take Shape Plastic Surgery is a surgical procedure for transgender women who want to achieve a body they feel comfortable with. The procedure involves placing silicone or saline-filled implants into the breast tissue after an incision is made. The procedure generally requires one operation, two, if the patient does not have sufficient skin elasticity for the implants, and a tissue expander is required to create additional room. During the procedure, local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia is used.
An MTF breast transition is similar to a traditional breast augmentation. Patients can choose the size, placement, and implant type they prefer. However, because there is less breast tissue in transgender women, silicone implants are generally used for a more natural feel. Surgery typically lasts between two hours and recovery is roughly one week. The breast implants completely settle after two months.
The best candidates for this procedure are transwomen and non-binary individuals who are 18 years or older. It is ideal for people who do not feel confident in their body and would like to to enhance their appearance to build confidence and self-esteem. Due to the emotional nature of the procedure, it is recommended that candidates go through counseling prior to making their decision, so it is less likely that they regret their choice later down the road.
