BREAST AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE
We provide breast augmentation methods designed to help transgender patients achieve their desired shape safely.
The process for transgender breast augmentation includes some unique considerations. Because our transgender patients have tighter tissues in the breast area than cisgender* female patients, we may not be able to begin with large implants. Depending on your desired breast size, we will likely design a strategy for staged augmentation, beginning with smaller implants.
Another option is to begin the process of breast augmentation with tissue expanders. A tissue expander is a temporary implant that can be expanded to stretch the skin over time. This prepares the area to safely receive a larger, permanent implant. Fat grafting is also an excellent solution for natural augmentation of the breast mound.
Dr. Rogers will gladly discuss all your options and help you find the solution that is right for you. All options are designed to achieve a natural shape and feel, so you can feel truly at home in your body. As with all cosmetic procedures and treatments, results may vary depending on the individual patient’s physiology and healing abilities.
*”Cisgender” refers to an individual whose gender identity matches the sex they were assigned at birth.
Insurance Coverage Options
Transgender procedures are covered by some insurance providers. While every insurance provider is different, we want to help ensure care is affordable for all our patients. We are happy to help you work with your provider to go over your options. Please contact us to get started.
