Transgender Breast Enlargement Basics

Enlarging your breasts may be an important personal goal in your journey to expressing your authentic gender. Breast augmentation for a transgender woman is not that much different than a breast procedure for a biological female, but board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joel Beck will make sure you know what to expect from the process. To schedule your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Beck, please call Bay Area Feminization Surgery at 650-249-3169.

How is MTF Breast Enlargement Different Than other Breast Augmentations?

The technical aspects of your breast procedure won't be all that different from any other breast enlargement procedure, except for in the following ways:

  • Enlarging the breast pocket. Many transgender women undergo hormone therapy, which typically enlarges the breasts, but you may find you want larger breasts than the hormones can provide. Dr. Beck can place breast implants within the existing breasts. Even if you do not have breasts, skin usually stretches to cover a range of breast implant sizes. Dr. Beck has the experience necessary to recommend the breast implant sizes that will work for your current chest measurements and frame.
  • Matching an implant size to your frame. Transgender women are often taller and have larger frames than a person assigned the female sex at birth. Height and your frame may have some effect on how certain breast implant sizes look on your body, and Dr. Beck will make sure you know the full range of breast implant sizes that will work for you.
  • Complementing your feminization results. Your transgender surgery journey is entirely unique. It's nobody's choice but your own whether you want to pursue one, multiple or no surgeries as part of expressing your true gender. If you decide it's right for you, Dr. Beck can provide additional services such as laser hair removal or facial feminization surgery to complement the results of breast enlargement.
