Male to Female (MTF) Reconstruction
MTF breast reconstruction is an excellent option for non-binary transgender people or transwomen who want to achieve a more feminine profile. The surgical procedure involves insertion of silicone or saline implants to accentuate the shape and size of the chest.
The ultimate goal of MTF breast augmentation surgery is to make one more comfortable with their body by aligning the physical characteristics in a better way with sense of self. This reduces the feeling of gender dysphoria.
Most patients attain enhanced body confidence, self-esteem, and relief after getting the procedure done. However, choosing to undergo a surgery should always be a personal decision shaped by internal philosophies and feelings against external circumstances, such as personal goals.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides MTF reconstruction chest surgery to patients in Cleveland, Beachwood, Pepper Pike and Lyndhurst, OH, and surrounding locations.
Deciding to Undergo a MTF Reconstruction Chest Surgery
It is normal to hesitate before deciding on MTF breast augmentation surgery as with any other major life decision that results in permanent change. Most people start by weighing the benefits of the cosmetic surgery against its side-effects and complications. Experiencing a range of emotions is expected.
Your gender affirmation surgeon will walk you through the procedure, its pros and cons, and other information in detail. They will discuss recovery, safety, techniques, and expected results so that you can take an informed decision.
MTF Breast Implants for Transgender Women
Augmentation mammoplasty or breast augmentation is a critical component of gender transition. Breast implants are inserted in this cosmetic procedure to enhance the shape and size of your chest.
Majority of transfeminine individuals starting hormone therapy find the resulting physical changes to be attractive and positive. However, hormone therapy can only do so much, and you may desire larger breasts. This can be achieved by inserting breast implants to better match your internal gender expression.
Time Taken for Recovery
Male to non-binary (MTN) or Male to female (MTF) breast augmentation procedures require extensive surgical intervention. While the procedure is not painful, you may need to take 7 to 9 days off work to recuperate at home. However, this depends from patient to patient and the extent of surgery.
Realistic Expectations are Important
MTF breast augmentation is a vital step towards enhancing your body confidence and self-esteem. However, it is important that you maintain realistic expectations so as not to be disappointed with the procedure later. It can be difficult to predict the exact outcome since every patient is different.
You may also require additional surgeries to achieve the type of feminine looking chest you are hoping for. The best way to make sure that you receive quality care is to get your procedure performed by a reputable board certified plastic surgeon.
The breast reconstruction surgeon should have adequate knowledge, expertise, and training to ensure the surgery delivers successful and safe results. They should also have experience working with members of the transgender community.
