For many transwomen and non-binary transfeminine people, male-to-female (MTF) breast augmentation is the first surgical step in their physical transformation. Every patient is unique and has a different perception of beauty. For this reason, some patients choose to undergo multiple procedures on their journey towards physical and emotional well-being.
In addition to MTF breast augmentation, there are a variety of other MTF surgery options that can create a more feminine upper body and facial appearance, including:
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.
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 original breast augmentation. 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.
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.
