Top breast augmentation surgery details
MTF top breast augmentation is performed with the patient under general anesthesia. Either breast implants or fat grafting will be used to create the breasts. If breast implants are to be used, the size, shape, and placement of the implants will be decided during your initial consultation with Dr. Maercks. Some patients may require a tissue expansion procedure before the implants are placed. If this is needed, Dr. Maercks will go over the details during your consultation.
If fat grafting is to be used to create your breasts, the first step of your procedure will involve liposuction. Fat will be removed from an area of your body where it can be spared (usually this is the abdomen, thighs, or flanks), and it will then be injected into the chest to create a breast mound. The use of fat grafting for breast augmentation is for patients who only want a smaller breast size. After the top breast augmentation has been completed, your new breasts will be wrapped in a compression garment.
