Male to Female Breast Enlargement

Last Updated: May 29, 2012

Typically, breast augmentations are performed on women, but there are circumstances under which men also benefit from the procedure. For example, male-to-female transsexuals, female impersonators, gender-benders and cross dressers elect to have the surgery to improve their appearance, presentation, and sense of identity.

Male breast enlargement methods are similar to women breast enlargement. As with women, male breast enlargement include procedures such as intake of breast enlargement pills, breast enlargement exercises and, of course, getting surgical implants.

Alternative methods are often seen as safer compared to surgery and are less expensive but do not guarantee the same results as implants. With men, as well as with women, the effectiveness of these methods depends on individual's body built. Naturally, men who have more feminine body structure will benefit from breast enlargement for men methods that do not involve implants. There are men who claim that pills work for them, while some suggest exercises works better.

A very important thing to note is that the breast enlargement pills and exercises were primary designed for women. These methods are often successful with women because their hormones and body structure differ from men's. It is important to consult with a doctor before deciding to use product that is not designated to help your gender directly.

Breast Implant Surgery

The surest way of getting male breast enlargement is to get breast implants inserted through plastic surgery methods. We are able to refer you to plastic surgeons in your area who are all board certified and are able to give you the most affordable rates on this procedures. Presently there are three basic kinds of breast implants that are used today: saline-filled, silicone gel-filled and alternative, such as soybean-filled implants. There have been lots of medical advances in breast implant surgeries and surgeons can now operate with very little amount of scarring by inserting implants through incisions that are hidden in belly buttons or armpits.

After your surgery

When you get your new breasts it is important to wear a bra. Don't listen to people who say that bras are only for women. If you have breasts you will - just like any women - experience some discomfort when your body adjusts to this new "addition". The tissue that starts to form under the skin is tender and without a bra the new breasts can move around and cause pain and bruises in some extreme cases.

With increased breast size the nipples and the nipple area may become hard as well so wearing a bra can ease this discomfort. Once the breast tissue becomes enlarged and the skin slowly stretches and readjusts to the new breast shape it is good to apply Aloe Vera gel at least once a day if not more.

Weigh Your Options Carefully & Discuss Them With Your Surgeon

Before you decide to have this surgery, you should think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon. There are lots of plastic surgery consultants who will suggest wearing a bra or a brasserie (or fake breasts) for some time before agreeing to perform a male-to-female breast enlargement.

If your expectations are reasonable, however, and if you're physically healthy, then you should be able to have this procedure. (We are able to put you in touch with the best, board-certified plastic surgeons in your area who offer both expertise and affordable rates.)

Breast Implants

Breast enlargement surgery is designed to enhance the size and shape of a person's breast tissue. The increase in breast size results from the implementation of breast implants into the patient's body.

Breast implants are made up of a silicone shell that is comprised with some filler material. Typically the filler material is composed of saline, although silicone gel is sometimes used. The patient has the option of choosing a smooth or slightly textured surface for the outer silicone shell.

In most cases, the male breast enlargement surgery takes one to two hours to complete. Once the implants are inserted stitches are used to close the incisions.

Male Breast Augmentation - The surgical procedure

Surprisingly, there are few significant physiological differences between male and female breast tissue other than volume. The surgery is identical with either gender. Through inserting an implant behind each breast, surgeons are able to enlarge a man's bust line by a cup size.

Since most men usually have less skin in that area, it is suggested that they start with the smaller implant in order for the body to get used to the new shape.
During the surgery breast augmentation is done under general anesthetic by inserting saline implants under the breast area.

There are choices for placement of the implant and of the incision, and in discussion with the doctor you should be given an option that suits you best. The method of inserting and positioning your implant depends on your anatomy as well as on your surgeon's recommendation.

The incision can be made either in the crease where the breast meets the chest, or in the armpit to minimize scarring. Once the surgeons works through the incision, your breast tissue will be lifted to create a pocket, either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath your pectoral muscle. Most breast implants are simply a shell filled with either silicone gel or a salt-water solution known as saline; there are also alternative fillings such as soy solution.

Surprisingly, there are few significant physiological differences between male and female breast tissue other than volume. The surgery is identical with either gender. Through inserting an implant behind each breast, surgeons are able to enlarge a man's bust line by a cup size.

In most cases, the male-to-female breast enlargement surgery takes one to two hours to complete. Once the implants are inserted, stitches are used to close the incisions, which may also be taped for greater support. Finally, a gauze bandage will be applied, and prescription pain medication administered along with recovery instructions.

Recovery From Male Breast Enlargement

During the recovery phase it is best to invest in a good bra that will further support your breasts and help to ease any discomfort.

The surgeon will give you recovery instructions and prescription pain medication.

The time it takes to fully recover varies according to where the implants were placed and your past experience with recovering from surgeries. If implants are placed under the muscle, recovery time to all routine activities can be around 7-10 days and you can return to active exercise in about a month.

The recovery time is quicker if the breast implants are placed above the muscle.
