The growing understanding and acceptance of what it means to be transgender is encouraging more people around the world to express who they really are, even if their physical appearance doesn’t match how they feel inside. Fortunately, advances in cosmetic medicine have made it easier to remove these physical limitations as well.
If you’re a transgender individual who’s interested in exploring sex reassignment procedures, there are many doctors who are willing to reshape your body—unfortunately, some of them make unrealistic claims about transgender body sculpting. The truth is body sculpting can have mixed results, with some variables depending on the sex you were assigned at birth. Belle Medical providers increase the chances of a positive outcome by thoroughly counseling all of our patients, letting them know exactly what they can expect from their treatment.
For Male-to-Female Patients
Fat Transfer, or fat grafting, is our standard recommendation for breast augmentation for transgender women. However, MTF body sculpting doesn’t always deliver ideal results. Male bodies typically lack the amount of estrogen needed to keep the body from reabsorbing the excess fat—we’ve found that around 25% of the fat remains in the breast tissue after transfer. Our physicians recommend traditional implants for MTF breast augmentation.
When it comes to MTF hip augmentation and feminine body contouring, however, our procedures can deliver life-changing results.
For Female-to-Male Patients
FTM body sculpting is more straightforward. Our targeted fat removal process transforms feminine curves into a lean, masculine look. The procedure is quick and nearly painless, and it requires very little downtime.
FTM chest contouring is another popular procedure for transgender men exploring gender reassignment. Our treatment is focused on removing fatty tissue. Although patients will still have breasts after the procedure, they will be much smaller, creating a more masculine profile.
Feel More Like Yourself
Our cosmetic procedures are just that: cosmetic. They can change what you look like on the outside, but they cannot change who you are inside. We want you to be happy with your decision and your body. We recommend that all of our patients receive counseling before and after the procedure. The safety, happiness, and well-being of our patients is our number one priority.
