Transgender patients who are transitioning from male to female often undergo hormone treatment to enhance the size and shape of their breast tissue. However, those who still desire larger breasts may decide to have a surgical breast augmentation.
The procedure is very similar to a traditional breast augmentation, using saline or silicone devices surgically implanted under the skin and tissue. However, because chest anatomy differs from male to female, there are various anatomical factors to consider in order to determine the best approach. Dr. MacPhee can make recommendations during a private consultation based on your particular anatomy.
