What is the goal of Transgender Breast Augmentation?
The transition is a sensitive and delicate time, and the transformation of your appearance may be crucial to becoming more at ease in society with your new identity. At Southeastern Aesthetic Surgery, we proudly provide the most advanced technological developments in transgender breast augmentation with the goal of helping you achieve a natural feminine bustline as you develop the figure that represents your true self. In many cases, breast augmentation may be combined with other procedures such as liposuction or fat transfer to achieve a more comprehensive transformation of your appearance, diminishing volume in areas that enhance a masculine physique and adding to the areas that make you look shapelier as a woman. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Austin to discuss transgender breast augmentation and other procedures available to help you achieve a more feminine figure.
Why should I consider Transgender Breast Augmentation?
Many trans women worry that their appearance is far too masculine to truly represent their inner selves, while also making them more vulnerable to social discrimination. For many, the struggle to appear more feminine and “pass” in society can be discouraging, and for some, may even lead to depression. For many years, the decision to undergo surgical enhancements was tainted with anxiety and fear of unreliable procedures that produced questionable results. Today, cosmetic procedures to help accentuate a more feminine figure and silhouette have become safer and less complicated, with breast augmentation being the most commonly performed procedure for trans women. The peace of mind gained by aligning your mind, body, and spirit may help you realize that the courageous steps you are now taking are leading you into an exciting new discovery of yourself.
Who is a good candidate for Transgender Breast Augmentation?
Any trans woman in good general health who feels that her appearance detracts from her social identity and wants to enjoy wearing feminine clothing may be an ideal candidate for transgender breast augmentation. If you feel you are living an unfulfilled, unsatisfying life trapped in a body that does not represent who you are, transgender breast augmentation, perhaps combined with liposuction or other procedures, may help you to finally feel more at ease in your physical self.
What is “Top Surgery”?
Southeastern Plastic Surgery provides top surgery to transgender men in order to address several aesthetic concerns in a single procedure. Top surgery removes breast tissue while simultaneously creating a more masculine appearance of the chest, often removing excess skin and repositioning and/or resizing the nipple and areola area. It typically occurs in three steps: first the physician performs a mastectomy, which removes existing breast tissue; then the physician repositions chest tissue to provide a more masculine shape; lastly the surgeon will reposition and sometimes resize the nipple and areola so they having a masculine appearance. Good candidates for top surgery have been living as a member of their desired sex and have realistic expectations for the procedure. The recovery process is highly individual depending on the extent of your surgery, and is something you should discuss with your physician during your consultation. You should expect that the initial healing process will take several weeks. While not all transgender men choose to remove their breast tissue, if you are looking to undergo this procedure, know that you can trust Dr. Troy Austin to help you achieve an appearance that you are comfortable in.
