Male breasts

Okay, you are a male with female breasts. The breasts themselves are larger than those most women have and even look nicer than those on most women. I think for starters, you need to figure out why it is that you have feminine breast, before you decide on what you plan to do surgically. You should have an endocrine work up to see if you have some severe hormonal imbalance or some other reason this has occurred. That should be your first priority . then you willbe in a position to decide what it is that needs to be done . Also, a psychological evaluation should be done. I would be surprised if you could find a plastic surgeon willing to put implants in you until there are some answers to some very basic questions.

Male 38C wants larger breasts

The possibility of going larger exist, however without an actual physical examination it would be very hard to know how much larger the person could be made.  According to the patient 38 C is an actual size it possibly can go up to double D but that still would have to be determined at the time of the physical examination in order to decide what size implant could be placed in the patient.

Based upon how stretched you skin appears, I do not think that you could tolerate/handle much larger breasts or implants.

Male Bigger Breasts?

Thank you for the question and pictures.

It is difficult to give you precise advice without direct examination and more information about your specific situation and goals.. However, based on your pictures and experience I think you will be able to achieve larger breasts. Exactly what breast implant size/profile will be necessary to do so will depend on exactly what your goals are.

I would suggest that you meet with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience with similar patients.  You may also find the attached link helpful.

Best wishes.

Male with 38C breasts wants to go bigger.

You look neither male nor 206 pounds in the provided photo. If you are male to female transgender and have not taken female hormones or suppressed testosterone, you are lucky to have such youthful, attractive, and full breasts (and no chest hair).

Irrespective of your gender identification, the breasts you show in your photograph cannot be enlarged by much at all, as the cleavage is close, the skin is already full, and the breast-to-waist ratio is large. You could likely add no more than 250cc per side, if even that. 1200cc is achievable only with significantly overfilled saline implants or tissue expanders, since the largest silicone or saline implants are 800cc with the saline allowing some overfill (but not to 1200cc).

Any surgeon who agrees to operate with these stated goals is not doing anything good for you. And this advice has nothing to do with gender, but with simple anatomic limitations. 1200cc would add approximately 4-5 cup sizes to your present breast volume. That is clearly impossible without harming you. Best wishes!

Male breast Implants can be massive

Male breast implants are not the most common of procedures done by most plastic surgeons.  Since males tend to have wider and heavier frames, the implants they can carry are much larger then the standard females.  Saline implants above 1200-1500 cc are common in males who desire that look and have the frame to support it.  Hope that helps.

Transgengender male to female surgery

Transgender male to female breast augmentation is a possibility and can be performed to achieve larger breasts.  On a visit with a plastic surgeon that specializes in surgery for transgender individuals you can discuss your goals as well as the implants that will used to achieve them.

Large male breast enlargment

It is a very interesting case. I would suggest to follow Dr Edelson advice to start with about the diagnosis of your feminine look. For what concerns your breast size I had very good experiences with serial augmentation for patients aiming to very large sizes. This means that you will need two or tree procedures to reach your ideal/maximum size. The result is very natural because the skin can expand slowly and without stretch marks. You should consider very seriously how important it is for you to have a natural look: very large implants are often visible and/or palpable. This is the main issue to resolve before planning any augmentation and you definitely need some consultations with excellent specialists before taking any decisions. Good luck.

Male with breasts

Although it is not uncommon for men to have breast tissue, I would recommend a endocrine work-up to make sure there is not something medical that requires more attention.  Once you complete your work-up and you want to proceed with larger implants, then I would recommend a similar evaluation and consultation that women go through for breast enhancement, whether it is through implants or fat grafting.

Male breast augmentation.

In my experience , genetic males who opt for breast augmentation are unique in several ways. First of all, men are frequently larger than women. Therefore larger implants don't look as gaudy as similarly sized implants may in women. Secondly, the pectoralis major muscle is significantly thicker than in most women so that it tends to flatten the implant more in males. Therefore one generally uses higher profile  implants to get real projection, (unless the hormones have given sufficient projection). Also, because males generally have thicker tissues, they can use either silicone OR saline with similar results ( without the threat of rippling) whereas with women, most of us use silicone more frequently than saline. Also, because the implants need to be larger, the axillary approach ( which I rarely use anyway) is used less frequently in males. 
Lastly, "standard " implants generally come in sizes up to 800 ccs which translates to roughly three or more "cup" sizes. If you're already a 38C, an 800 cc implant should be sufficient. 
Oh, and one more thing. It can be bigger operation in males so you "may" pay a little more.
