FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do You Have To Be On Hormones Before MTF Breast Augmentation?
No, it is not a requirement. However, unlike FTM top surgery where taking hormones does not impact results, taking hormones before MTF top surgery may improve results. Hormone therapy for MTF patients usually results in the development of some breast tissue. This can lead to more natural looking and feeling results. Additionally, it can make the technical aspect of the surgery easier.
This is completely a personal choice, however. Dr. Sessa does not require his transgender patients to take hormones before or after surgery. Some may choose never to take hormones and that is perfectly okay. It should be noted that if you do take hormones, you may need to stop for a few weeks before surgery. This is only temporary and you can resume at a certain point during your recovery.
What Are The Best Type Of Breast Implants For A Transgender Woman?
The best type of breast implant for a transgender woman largely depends on her goals and anatomy. In most cases, Dr. Sessa will recommend some type of silicone implant. This is because they tend to provide more natural looking and feeling results. However, if a patient wants particularly large breasts, but is not suited for the placement of silicone implants, saline implants can provide dramatic results through a small incision. Ultimately, the best way to determine the right breast implant for your body and goals is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Alberico Sessa at Sarasota Surgical Arts.
Do All MTF People Get Breast Implants?
No, not all people who transition from male to female get breast implants. Not all of them will experience gender dysphoria surrounding their chests, or at all. This is perfectly fine as every patient’s choices during their transition are their own to make. If you choose to get breast implants, Dr. Sessa is the best breast augmentation surgeon in Sarasota.
What Breast Augmentation Techniques Can Be Used During MTF Top Surgery?
All of the major breast augmentation techniques are possible to use during MTF top surgery. These techniques include:
- Inframammary incision
- Periareolar incision
- Transaxillary incision
- Transumbilical incision
The inframammary fold and transaxillary incisions are the two most popular and frequently performed techniques for transgender breast augmentation. Dr. Sessa can recommend and talk about the best technique for your surgery.
