The importance of selecting a qualified plastic surgeon for transgender surgery
With more and more surgeons offering TG procedures to capitalize on growing cosmetic trends, it’s important to choose a practitioner who not only possess the highest standards of educational and professional accreditation, but one whose integrity places the clients’ best interests above all else.
Our team has received board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and has completed a series of rigorous and demanding residencies in craniofacial, reconstructive and burn surgery.

Your MTF Breast Feminization Results
Although taking synthetic hormones can create the appearance of female breasts, MTF breast augmentation can further enhance your breasts by:
- Increasing size
- Creating breast symmetry
- Enhancing breast projection and cleavage
- Improving nipple shape
- Enhancing overall breast appearance
After surgery is complete, you will be furnished with a compression garment to maximize healing and reduce swelling in the chest area. Scars will appear more prominent at first, but will eventually fade within 2-3 months post-op. Soreness, bruising and discomfort go with the territory, and can be easily combatted with pain medications supplied by our team.
Most clients can return to work and normal routines within 7-10 days, although it’s advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for at least six weeks. Patients can benefit from enlisting the help of a friend, family member or paid assistant to take on household chores and/or childcare for the first stage of recovery.
