Male-to-female breast augmentation: Reasons and implant options

Getting saline or silicone implants is the most important stage in the feminizing top surgery process for transgender patients. It’s crucial to note that breast implants are used exclusively to increase the size and fullness of breasts. If a man is seeking to enlarge and accentuate the pectoral muscles, pectoral implant surgery is the appropriate choice. While most female breast implants are composed of liquid matter, male pectoral implants are made of solid silicone.

Reasons for Breast Implants in Men

Like women, men have many different reasons for wanting to alter the size and appearance of their chests. Breast implants can help to boost self-confidence for men in a state of transitioning to a feminine-presenting appearance. Breast implants can help to balance the ratio between the hips and chest. Additionally, men who prefer the look and fit of women’s clothing may be interested in enhancing the silhouette to make clothing more flattering.

Types of Breast Implants for Men

Men can consider all of the available options for implant type, implant size, and placement when planning their augmentations. The first step is selecting the type of implant you’d like the surgeon to use. 

The traditional silicone breast implant is the most popular option for MTF augmentation. Capable of providing a natural look and feel, silicone breast implants closely resemble the natural properties of the fat that makes up breast tissue. Silicone can be an ideal choice for MTF breast implants because men tend to have less breast tissue compared to women. This can pose difficulties during implant surgery because there may not be enough tissue available to cover the full implant when choosing a firmer option.
The second implant option for MTF breast augmentation is the gummy bear implant. Made of stable, cohesive silicone gel, these implants give you the option to choose either a round or teardrop shape. They do a beautiful job of maintaining their shape when a person is sitting, lying down, standing, or moving about. Leak risks with gummy bear implants are low because the gel within the implant will stay in place even if the implant’s outer shell is torn.

MTF Breast Augmentation Candidates

An ideal candidate for MTF breast augmentation is in good mental and physical health. In many cases, a male breast implant patient is someone who wants to see more dramatic changes in breast size after starting hormone therapy. It’s important to confirm that you are not suffering from diabetes, hypertension, bleeding disorders, or other health conditions that could complicate surgery. A candidate should be at a healthy, stable weight that they plan to maintain.

Your Initial Consultation

We know that the day of your male breast implant surgery consultation in Miami is an exciting, highly anticipated day that will be filled with lots of questions. Rest assured that the team at Boutinic Aesthetics will do everything possible to put you at ease while we explain the process of MTF breast augmentation. Our first priority will be helping you to determine if you’re an ideal candidate for breast implant surgery. 
We’ll start by discussing your goals for surgery, reviewing your medical history, talking about your experiences with past surgeries, and asking if you smoke. We’ll also help you begin to get an idea of what to expect from this surgery by showing you different implant sizes. Our patients will typically try on several different implant sizes during the consultation period to get a better idea of the aesthetic look that makes them feel comfortable. One of our surgeons will examine your chest to take measurements of its shape and size.

MTF Breast Augmentation Surgery in Miami: What to Expect

On the day of your surgery, you will be given anesthesia. Your surgeon will help you determine the best anesthesia method to use during your consultation period. MTF breast implant incisions are made to be as inconspicuous as possible. They are typically placed under the breast, in the armpit, and on the edges of the areola. Once incisions have been made, your surgeon will insert the breast implant into a pocket underneath your pectoral muscle.
Exact placement of your implant will be determined based on the size of the implant you’ve chosen, your body composition, and other factors that will be addressed during your consultation period.
Once the implants have been placed, your surgeon will close the incisions with sutures, surgical tape, or skin adhesive. While every attempt is made to create minimal scarring that will fade dramatically over time, every patient’s healing journey is different. Genetics, your medical history, and other factors all impact your body’s ability to heal scar tissue following surgery.
Results of breast augmentation can be seen immediately. However, patients can expect to experience swelling and tenderness for several weeks following surgery. It often takes up to six months for implant results to reach their peak. It’s normal to experience pain and discomfort for several days following surgery. Patients are advised to take one to two weeks off from work, exercise, or any activity that would cause them to engage in strenuous activity. You may also be instructed to wear compression garments during your recovery.
