What is MTF Top Surgery?

Through the adjustment of physical characteristics, this procedure is meant to feminize the chest area for individuals transitioning from male to female. Sometimes referred to as chest feminization or, more generally, gender-affirming top surgery, this procedure shifts existing tissue if needed and strategically places breast implants, resulting in a more feminine and contoured look.

Options for Gender-Affirming Breast Augmentation

As one of the most versatile cosmetic surgeries, breast augmentation offers precise customization since breast implants come in a wide variety of choices.

Breast Implant Type

Silicone and saline implants each offer pros and cons, and the choice is often made depending on what look the patient is seeking. The preferred shape, round or teardrop, will be determined mostly based on whether you want an especially natural look or something more dramatic.

Breast Implant Incision

Periareolar incisions, or adjacent to the areola, are often made to disguise scarring when this is a concern. Inframammary incisions, made in the crease under the breast tissue, result in some scarring but can allow for a larger implant.

Breast Implant Placement

Again depending on aesthetic goals, placement of the implant may be submuscular, underneath the chest muscle, or subglandular, above the muscle but under the surface tissue. Submuscular placement provides a typically more natural look, while subglandular is a less invasive procedure and often requires less downtime.
