What is MtF Top Surgery?
MtF top surgery is a gender-affirming procedure that uses breast augmentation to give you the breasts that will help you feel more aligned with your true gender. Using advanced procedures, our experienced surgeons can help you achieve natural-looking breasts.
Am I a Good Candidate for MtF Top Surgery?
If you are a trans woman or nonbinary and want to have feminine breasts, you may be a good candidate for MtF top surgery. People should also be mentally and emotionally prepared for the permanent changes of top surgery. At Longwood Plastic Surgery, we have worked with people through all steps of the MtF transition process.
Many people have spent years thinking about this surgery and feel very prepared. If you are ready and have been on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for one year or longer, we look forward to helping you with your top surgery. We recommend that candidates stay in good physical health, avoid smoking before and after surgery, and make sure their surgeon knows about all of their medications.
How Does MtF Top Surgery Work?
Physically, MtF top surgery resembles a standard breast augmentation. You will need to be on HRT for one year prior to your top surgery. This will develop your breast tissue and give you better placement for the implants. The surgeon will use a small incision to insert the implants. You will have a wide choice of implants, including silicone and saline. Silicone implants offer a range of shapes with different amounts of projection to help you find the right ones for you.
