What is Top Surgery Recovery Like?
The procedure is carried out in the LPS accredited surgical suite on an outpatient basis, so you’ll be able to recover in the comfort of your own home. It’s normal to feel heaviness on your chest from the weight of your new implants. We’ll supply you with a surgical bra to support your new breasts throughout your recovery, and we recommend you wear these supportive garments for as long as you need.
You can expect to keep your physical activity on the light side for the first 2-3 weeks, but most patients return to work or school after a few days. It may be several months before your breast implants fully settle into their most natural position, and you become accustomed to their feel.
What Results Can I Expect?
The results of MtF top surgery are immediate and profound. You will no longer be missing a part of your body that should have been there all along. Your shirts will fit as intended, and best of all, people will perceive you as the woman you know you are. When your colleagues, friends, and loved ones react to you as they do to women in general, the mental weight lifted can be immense. No more concern about whether or not you pass. No more worry about being clocked or misgendered. You can now focus the emotional energy you’ve long put toward your gender identity on living your life to the fullest.
Let Longwood Plastic Surgery give you the confidence and courage to live your most authentic life as the woman you’ve always been.
