Can Men Get Breast Implants?

Yes, but be sure you fully understand the risk/benefit of this idea. If you want to fill out a concavity or look more feminine must be determined. From MIAMI Dr. darryl j. Blinski

Many Transgender Patients Happy With Implants

It’s not unusual for transgender patients to request breast augmentation surgery.When this situation arises, the operation can be performed successfully with high levels of patient satisfaction.Many similarities exist between transgender and female breast augmentation patients, but important differences exist, as well.
These differences are related to the type of preoperative evaluations that are necessary and important anatomic differences that exist between the two groups.
The preoperative evaluation of transgender patients involves several important considerations.It’s important that transgender patients be in a supervised transgender program that follows an organized algorithm.This type of program provides important psychological support and hormonal therapy in the preoperative period.When this program’s specified criteria are met, it’s reasonable to proceed with breast augmentation.
Several important anatomic issues must be considered in transgender patients.Transgender patients often have broader chest walls than female patients and, for this reason, often require larger implants.In some cases, the pectoralis muscle may be large and bulky and, for this reason, subglandular implant placement may be necessary, as well.
If you’re considering breast augmentation, consultation with a Board-certified plastic surgeon is appropriate.This surgeon should be able to formulate an appropriate treatment plan for you.

Men and Breast Implants?

Thank you for the question.

Yes,  men can get “breast implants”.  I've seen several men with your requests achieve their goals. Every patient's situation is different. It will be important to have an honest/open dialog with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon.

Best wishes.

Male Breast Implants

Thanks for the question.

To answer your question, in short, yes. I would need more information to delineate the type of "look" you're attemtping to achieve before commenting any further. I recommend following up with a board certified plastic surgeon who is versed in male breast implantation. 

Best of luck,

Can a man get breast implants

As suggested by the previous postings, men can get implants but they are stiffer and more shaped pectoral implants.  The firmness and shape give more of a muscular look as compared to the soft look and feel of traditional breast implants.

I hope that helps!

Breast Implants for Men

Yes, there are implants for men to enhance their chest.  The pec implants are placed similarly to breast implants, but results in a more masculine look.  Placing a regular breast implants may results in a feminizing look.


Good luck.

Men and breast implants

If you are trying to have a more masculine chest, then pectoral implants would be the right choice.

If you are trying to achieve feminine breasts as part of a sex change process, then you should start with the normal sequence which includes psychological evaluation and hormonal treatment at a center that has a gender reassignment program.

What is the reason for the implants

You did not explain the reason for getting the implants. This is an unusual request unless you are at the process of the sex change or you meant Pectoral implants for the chest enhancement rather than the Breast enhancement. Please provide more information and pictures.
