What Does MTF Top Surgery Involve?
MTF top surgery is a type of cosmetic procedure targeted at increasing the breast size in transgender women. The procedure allows for a more feminine breast-to-hip ratio. MTF breast reconstruction involves the use of saline and silicone implants that enhance the size and shape of the chest.
This chest reconstructive surgery is performed on individuals looking to alter the size, shape, and appearance of their chest. Generally, MTF is performed on people that desire a feminine appearance but have a masculine looking chest.
MTF Procedure Candidacy
You can improve your body confidence and self-esteem with male to female (MTF) breast reconstruction surgery. This procedure is suitable for patients that are:
- Above 18 years of age
- Physically and emotionally healthy
- Committed to having a chest augmentation procedure
MTF Top Surgery Procedure
MTF surgery (also known as breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty) can be completed in 1 – 2 hours in the operating room. Your treatment provider will put you under general anesthesia for the entire duration of the procedure. MTF surgery can be performed using several techniques. Your surgeon will consider the desired chest size, implant used, and location of incisions while determining the ideal technique.
Things to Know About MTF
- You can choose between saline implants (saltwater) and silicone implants (silicone gel).
- Saline implants are generally cheaper since they can be inserted using a small incision. However, you can obtain softer and more natural looking breasts with silicone implants.
- Incisions may be located under the bust line, armpit or around the areola.
The surgeon will make the incisions for inserting implants using a pre-decided surgical plan. The implants can be placed in a pocket above or below the pectoral muscles.
