This procedure is designed to create breasts that produce a more feminine physique. Hormone therapy may first be used to enlarge the breasts, but when this treatment option fails, many turn to breast augmentation to achieve the full, round breasts that project from the chest.
Female breast tissue is very similar to male breast tissue, so the process used is very similar to a typical breast augmentation surgery. Typically, the procedure is performed under anesthesia on an outpatient basis, and can be done in just under an hour.
Implant types may vary in textures, shapes and sizes, and choosing the right one is a matter of deciding what is right for your individual situation. Here at the Maercks Institute, we offer both silicone and saline implants to our transgender patients:
Silicone: A cohesive silicone gel is used to fill an outer silicone shell. These are often referred to as gummy bear implants, and newer products offer decreased risks and better safety. Saline: A silicone shell is filled with a saltwater solution, and implants are filled after they are placed in the body.
