Male to female chest surgery, priority in transition?

Dr. Reed, When do you advise I have breast implants done.  I am have been living full time as a woman for 5 years and have been on estrogens for most of that time.   Cherishma

Dear Cherishma,

The choice is yours.  If you’ve been on estrogens for 4 to 5 years, your breast size has probably maxed out and typically is one cup size smaller than your mother or sister.  If you are happy with your breast contours now, best not to have unneeded surgery.  Large breast implants will eventually sag as do large breasts on natal women, and you’ll be back in the operating room for a lift or revision.  If you present confirmingly as a woman now, surely you have many admires.

You may wish to consider feminizing vaginoplasty as your next procedure, and do consider our one-stage vaginoplastyBefore and after male to female transition pictures are posted on our web-site.  For vagionoplasty enter srsMiamicom/vaginoplasgty and scroll down.  Hope you like what you see.

Cordially,
