Virtual Consultations Before MTF Breast Augmentation Surgery or Body Feminization

    Transgender surgery is a highly specialized area of plastic and reconstructive surgery. For many transgender patients, it can be difficult to find an experienced and qualified surgeon locally. Dr. Mosser frequently works with out-of-town patients who are interested in pursuing male to female (MTF) and male to neutrois (MTN) breast augmentation.

    Because it can be difficult and expensive for patients to fly in for the consultation process, Dr. Mosser offers the option of a virtual consultation.

    Candidates for MTF Breast Augmentation or Body Feminization Surgery

    MTF breast augmentation or body contouring is designed to make you feel more comfortable in your own skin. If you meet the following criteria, then you’re probably an ideal candidate for surgery:

    • You are 18 years of age or older
    • You are in good overall health and have realistic expectations for surgical outcomes
    • You are working with a counsellor or primary care physician (PCP)
    • You have a letter of recommendation from your therapist or PCP
    • You are fully committed to surgically transforming your body

    Additional factors such as your current weight, alcohol consumption and whether you smoke may affect your candidacy for surgery. All of these factors will be discussed during your consultation to help Dr. Mosser determine if you are a good candidate for surgery.

    What happens during a virtual consultation?

    Virtual consultations are usually conducted by phone, or in some cases video chat. A virtual consultation usually lasts about an hour, but may last longer depending on how many questions you have about surgery.

    There are a few steps you will need to take in advance of your virtual consultation:

    1. Complete our health information questionnaires. You can mail, email or fax them in advance of your procedure.

    2. Upload photos of your chest to our secure patient communication system at To effectively evaluate your chest, Dr. Mosser will need photos of your profile (left and right), a straight on photo and 45 degree diagonal views.

    A virtual consultation is typically sufficient to allow Dr. Mosser to determine if you are a good candidate for surgery. You will still need to come in for an in-person evaluation, but this can usually be done within a day or two prior to your scheduled surgery. Additionally, all necessary labs and blood tests can be done locally at your physician’s office.
