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.

Best wishes.

Breast implants for men.

Regardless of the gender you were born with, breast implants are a surgical option available to patients willing to accept that this is not the same as wearing "falsies" some of the time. Crossdressers may not dress in feminine fashion all the time, but breast implants of a DD size would definitely not allow convincing masculine appearance, and therefore would not be an appropriate consideration unless you dress as a female full-time.

Though this might be considered male-female transgender appearance, gender identity is a complex and non-binary (male or female) designation.

Surgery to place breast implants is something most plastic surgeons do, but placing breast implants in the male chest has some important differences from female breast augmentation that few plastic surgeons have experience with and are aware of. Seek an ABPS-certified plastic surgeon who has experience with transgender patients and does lots of this surgery, regardless of your own choice of designation. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen

Assigning gender not necessary

Assigning a gender is not necessary as there are more gender designations than male, female, male to female, female to male, gender queer, etc.  I would not use adjustable implants because of the port and its requirement for removal.  There are no significant advantages to adjustable implants.

Breast implants for men

Usualy if men desire female breast implants, they are undergoing hormone replacement for subsequent sexual reassignment surgery. This also requires a psychological evaluation.  Good luck.
