This is a very interesting and real situation. I spoke with Curtis Crane, MD who is well-respected and has a special interests in gender reassignment. His response to your statement was as follows: "The goal of most plastic surgeons is to reconstruct the abnormal to normal or enhance something that is already natural. This request falls outside of both categories. It is closest to the request of trans patients, however, those surgeries are considered reconstructive as gender dysphoria is a well studied entity where surgery is thought to make the patient more whole, as it orients the patients gender (brain) with the body. As this patient explicitly states he is not transgendered, it falls outside of the guidelines most plastic surgeons consider ethical."
Feminizing the male chest
Placing breast implants in males to feminize has been done for years and is not the major issue in the discussion. Since this is an operation with placement of foreign material, motivation and expectations need to be explored. A psychiatric evaluation is very important to evaluate the motivations prior to proceeding with a life changing procedure like this. I would do the same for a woman who wanted a breast aug for the wrong reason, boyfriend wants it, etc.
Breast Implants for Men?
Thank you for the question.
I have had the opportunity to work with several men interested in breast implants (to feminize the chest wall). This is a different situation from trans gender patients in transition and from men who are looking to augment their chest walls ( pectoralis implants).
Nevertheless, this subset of patients is somewhat uncommon; it is very important to understand patient motivation clearly and to educate these patients about the long-term effects of having feminized chest walls.
