What is Transgender Breast Augmentation? Information for MTF Patients

Transgender breast augmentation is the terminology for a breast enlargement procedure that is performed on a transgender individual, but its roots are in breast augmentation (which is technically termed augmentation mammaplasty). Here is a quick synopsis of the procedure.

As most people know, breast augmentation is a surgery designed to enhance the breasts with the use of implants. Those implants can be silicone gel, which are slightly cohesive and have a denser texture – or they can be saline, which are filled with sterile saltwater that is encapsulated in a silicone shell. The implants come in a variety of sizes, and even in a variety of shapes. Your specific style of implant will determine on a number of factors, including your body type and chest size.

Other Surgical Considerations

MTF breast augmentation involves more than just the insertion of implants. For some patients, there may also be skin grafting involved. This is sometimes necessary, in order to create more skin on the chest to accommodate the breast implants. Essentially, the surgeon needs to create more "room."

Dr. Childers has performed numerous transgender breast augmentation procedures at his Riverside office. While some patients may prefer to undergo transgender breast augmentation in Ontario or elsewhere in the Inland Empire, they must bear in mind that waiting times are longer in these more heavily populated areas. Plus, Dr. Childers is a Harvard-trained plastic surgeon – a qualification that is hard to come by in Southern California.

The cost of transgender breast augmentation is approximately $6,000, according to the national average. In Riverside, transgender breast augmentation is somewhat closer to the highest national figures because cosmetic surgery fees tend to be higher in Southern California. At Riverside Plastic Surgery Associates, we strive to make cosmetic surgery fees manageable for every patient with the financing options we make available.
