As a Male Can I Get Breast Implants Without Getting HRT at All?

Hi my name is Trevor. I prefer to go by Sara. I am transgendered and was wondering if I can get breast augmentation without EVER being on HRT. I don't want HRT or SRS just feminization surgery and breast augmentations but need to know more information. Thank you for your time, ∞Sara∞

Yes you can have breast implants with out hormone replacement therapy. Proper sizing and placement is necessary for a great result.

      Not taking hormones should not pose any increased risk with regard to surgery.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials to perform the breast augmentation.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Hughesplasticsurgery Los Angeles, CA
