Breast Augmentation for Gender Confirmation

While breast augmentation is easily one of the most popular procedures for cis-gendered women around the world, it’s also an incredibly important step in the transitioning process, enabling transwomen to feel truly comfortable and at home in their bodies.

If you’re frustrated by a disconnect between the body you see in the mirror, and the way you feel on the inside, breast augmentation with Dr. Hovsepian can be an important and rewarding step in your gender affirmation journey. To learn more about this procedure and how it can help you, please reach out and set up your consultation at our Beverly Hills surgical center today.

Ideal Candidates for Breast Augmentation

During your consultation, Dr. Raffi Hovsepian will discuss everything you need to know about this procedure. He’ll also get to know both you and your current gender affirmation journey, to ensure that this step is the right one for you. The FDA has approved saline implants for patients 18 and older, while silicone implants are approved for patients aged 22 and up.

In most cases, it’s recommended that hormone therapy has been in place for at least one year, with a stable level of breast development having already occurred. This procedure can take place either before or after facial feminization or gender reassignment surgery, and can grant you the curvy, feminine chest that matches your cosmetic goals.

Fat Transfer for Your Breast Augmentation

Natural Approach

Traditional breast augmentation utilizes either a saline or silicone implant to add volume, shape, and size to your chest. A fat transfer augmentation, on the other hand, can either complete or improve your physical transformation with a natural approach that forgoes the use of artificial implants.

Tone and Trim

One attractive aspect of the fat grafting technique is that it allows you to remove fat from another area that might not be responding to diet or exercise. This procedure utilizes liposuction to suction fat from a donor site that has plenty to spare, before it’s purified and carefully injected into the breasts.

Sculpt and Shape

Not only does this process work to naturally add volume and size to the breasts without the need for any artificial implants, it also enables you to sculpt and tone another area of your body, so you can address any problematic bulges of unwanted fat and fully contour your figure in a way that meets your goals.
