I am trying to find a board certified surgeon that is willing to do breast augmentation surgery on me, a male who is NOT transgendered (at least not in the way it is usually implied). I do not wish to have to go through months or even years of psychotherapy etc to prove that I'm competent to choose my own life path. I have thought this over for years and I really will have it done. I'd just HIGHLY prefer to do this with a board certified US/Canada surgeon then have to fly abroad to get it.
How Can I Find a Certified Surgeon That is Willing to Give Me (A Non TG Male) Breast Implants?
Here is a link to the board certified doctors in your area who are qualified to perform Breast Augmentation. Our board certified doctors under our Gender Reassignment Surgery may help you as well.
Hopefully this helps!

Breast augmentation in the male patient.
Thanks for your question. Indeed I am occasionally turned to the perform breast augmentation in the male patient. Regardless of the patients gender I always attempt to make sure that the goals and the motivations are correct. In the situation of a transgender patient I go through the same informational process that I go through with everyone. I do believe the people have the right to choose their own life paths as long as no harm will be done.
You should not hesitate to speak to a board certified plastic surgeon. Your goal is not uncommon and I suspect that you will find someone who is a good fit for you.

Breast implants for none transgender male
As previously noted, this is not a patient population that is particularly large, but I suspect most plastic surgeons come upon this question occasionally, myself included. My recommendation is that you search for a certified plastic surgeon and be very candid with them during your consultation about your goals and expectations. I have operated on transgender individuals and self-described "cross dresser's" and yes, they are different with regard to their goals. Best of luck to you.
Breast Augmentation for Male ( Not Trans- Gender)?
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.
