Additional MTF/N Gender Confirmation Surgeries

For many transwomen  and feminine-spectrum gender-diverse and non-binary people, MTF/N breast augmentation is just one part of their physical transformation. Every patient is unique and has a different relationship to their bodies and experiences of discomfort or gender dysphoria. For this reason, some patients choose to undergo multiple procedures on their journey towards physical and emotional well-being. However, it should be noted that not all trans people have surgeries or go though medical transitioning.

Other Popular “Top” Procedures

In addition to MTF/N breast augmentation, there are a variety of other MTF/N surgery options that can create a more feminine upper body and facial appearance, including:

  • Liposuction– A body contouring procedure that eliminates unwanted pockets of fat from localized areas of the body.
  • Abdominoplasty– A body contouring procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal region.
  • Rhinoplasty– A surgical procedure to alter the size, shape or proportion of the nose.
  • Chin and cheek implants– A surgical procedure to add volume or contour to various regions of the face.
  • Thyroid cartilage reduction– A surgical procedure to minimize the appearance of an “Adam’s apple.”

The right procedures for you will ultimately depend on your cosmetic goals and expectations. Some transfeminine patients choose only breast augmentation, while others desire a more significant physical transformation.

During your consultation, Dr. Mosser will work with you to design a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your individual goals and expectations, as well as your body type.

Additional Surgical Procedures

The recovery period necessary in between surgical procedures is surprisingly short. The vast majority of patients feel comfortable resuming work and other light physical activity within a week of surgery. More strenuous physical activities should usually be avoided for at least a month. Most patients are healthy enough to pursue additional surgical procedures within four to six weeks of their breast augmentation or other surgical procedure. Of course, this is an estimate and recovery can vary greatly among patients. You and Dr. Mosser will be able to determine when your body is strong enough to undergo additional procedures.

Performing Multiple Procedures in a Single Surgery

In some cases, it’s possible to perform additional cosmetic procedures at the same time as breast augmentation. Choosing to combine two or more procedures in the same surgical session can reduce costs related to surgery and ultimately shorten your recovery time. However, it’s important to keep in mind that electing multiple procedures may increase your risk of surgical complications. If you’re considering this option, Dr. Mosser will be able to determine if you’re an ideal candidate during the consultation process.
