 MTF/N breast augmentation is a solution for transwomen or non-binary transgender people who wish to achieve a more feminine looking appearance through a surgical procedure that uses saline or silicone implants to enhance the size and shape of the chest. The ultimate goal of surgery is to reduce feeling of gender dysphoria, make you feel more comfortable with your body by better aligning your physical characteristics with your internal sense of self and the self you’d like to present to the world. The relief surgery provides can enhance both your feelings of self-esteem and body confidence.

Choosing to undergo surgery is a complex process shaped by internal feelings and philosophies as well as by external circumstances such as your overall health, your ability to travel for surgery and your current financial status.
