MALE TO FEMALE CHEST SURGERY
Male to female chest surgery typically requires constructive techniques. These techniques include the use of breast implants, local flaps, or fat grafting.
The most common technique typically involves placement of breast implants. The size and shape of the chest determine what type of implant is used in the augmentation. Ancillary techniques involve changing the nipple size or position depending on the desired result. The most common implant used is a silicone breast implant because it tends to give the patient a more natural look and feel. Saline implants can also be used, however risks of rippling and deflation are higher.
During the initial consultation with the surgeon, we will discuss the details of the procedure which include the approach, surgical technique and type of implant.
