Breast Augmentation and Gender Reassignment

Many transgendered patients who have undergone sex reassignment therapy consider a breast augmentation to enhance their body’s figure. While the hormones taken during hormone replacement therapy (HRT) provide some transgender women with the physical characteristics they desire, others seek a breast augmentation to supplement the effects of the transition process.

Surgically, the breast augmentation process for transgender patients is no different than it is for other patients. The same types of breast implants and incision options are offered. As is the case with other women, the amount of pre-existing breast tissue you have will determine how large your breast implants can be.

Breasts are an iconic and essential representation of womanhood. For many transgender patients, breast augmentation is a significant step during the transition process. The procedure can provide you with a more proportionate female figure, while at the same time improving your self-confidence and sense of identity.
