MTF Breast Augmentation
Breast Augmentation via MTF
Breasts have long been associated with femininity. Breast augmentation with MTF may give you the size, shape, and overall aesthetic that you’ve always wanted. MTF TOP surgery is a procedure that transforms a male chest into feminine breasts when hormone replacement treatment is insufficient for full breast enlargement.
While hormone replacement treatment can help with breast volume, many MTF patients want to improve the feminine shapes of their breasts to help with gender dysphoria, align their gender identification to their appearance, and boost their self-esteem.
Candidates for MTF Breast Augmentation
Individuals in good physical and mental health are the ideal candidates for MTF. They should be free of serious medical issues such as hypertension, diabetes, cancer, or bleeding disorders. They also include:
- Have reasonable expectations for their outcomes.
- Before surgery, you don’t smoke or are willing to quit.
- Are at a healthy weight and have no intention of gaining or losing any.
- Have you started hormone replacement therapy or sought counseling from a therapist?
Patients must be at least 18 years old and emotionally mature enough to undergo this cosmetic procedure.
MTF Breast Augmentation is a procedure used to increase the size of a woman’s breasts
MTF surgery for breast enlargement takes about two hours and is performed under general anesthesia. It provides a variety of alternatives for tailoring each patient’s outcome. These factors include the implant’s kind, volume, form, and projection, as well as its site.
Type of Implant
The outside shell of breast implants is made of silicone polymer, and the filler is either saline or silicone gel. Silicone implants provide a more natural appearance, are more firm, and have a smoother surface than metal implants. Saline implants are rounder, have a fluid feel to them when handled, and cost less.
Cohesive gel implants are the most recent advancement in implant technology. These silicone-gel implants, often known as gummy bear implants, are designed to provide additional stability once put. They are the most expensive and necessitate a larger incision.
Above the pectoral muscles but below the breast tissue, breast implants can be put (prepectoral). They can also be put over the pectoral muscles but below the chest wall (subpectoral)
Placement of Incisions
The inframammary folds are the most popular location for breast augmentation incisions.
Benefits of MTF Breast Augmentation
Although hormone replacement therapy can give you the look of female breasts, MTF breast augmentation can help you achieve even more feminization by:
- Breast augmentation
- Improving the symmetry of the breasts
- Breast projection and cleavage enhancement
- Increasing the shape of the nipple
- Improving the overall appearance of the breasts
What are some things to keep in mind while having gender-affirming breast augmentation surgery?
The chest and breasts of every woman are different. It’s critical to comprehend the desired breast size and form in relation to the current chest and breast anatomy. I’m curious if I can achieve the patient’s objectives in a single operation (single stage) or if a skin expansion stage is required. Shoulder width, breast projection, areola size, sternal width relative to shoulder width, breast cleavage, skin quality (stretch marks), areola diameter, nipple projection, and location of the breast fold relative to the areola position are all factors to consider. It’s also crucial to assess the pectoralis muscle, to see how distinct it is and how much it animates during contraction, since I’m attempting to figure out whether the implant should be placed in front of or behind the muscle.
