When it comes to breast growth, hormone therapy can only accomplish so much. Most transwomen find that they also need breast implants – or MTF top surgery – to complete their transformation.
Among our Tucson transgender surgery clients, silicone implants are the most popular option because they feel softer and look more like natural breast tissue than saline. However, many clients also find the benefits of saline appealing – including the shorter scar and lower cost.
Once you’ve chosen your ideal type of implant, you will need to refine your selection. Prior to surgery, you will have the opportunity to try on different implant sizers to determine the volume, projection and shape that is right for you.
