The plastic surgeons at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery understand the importance that skill and artistry play in plastic surgery. This is especially the case for individuals who are transitioning to look physically different than the body they were born with.
For patients desiring to look more feminine, body contouring surgery aims to add fullness and volume to the breasts, hips, and buttocks. In the initial consultation, we will ask the right questions to get a thorough understanding of the type of body shape you desire as well as your overall goals. A unique body contouring surgery plan for a more feminine appearance will be created.
To create a female chest, we recommend patients be on hormones for at least 12 months prior to surgery. Just the addition of hormones (prescribed by your endocrinologist) can create a pleasing breast mound, and some patients elect to not have surgery at all after hormones. If, however, you desire more fullness and volume in the bust, your surgeon will discuss either fat transfer or breast implants as possible options.
At the time of breast implants, liposuction or other body contouring procedures can be performed to help shape the body and give a more feminine appearance.
For breast surgery using fat transfer, the surgeon will first use liposuction to remove fat from one area, and it is then grafted to the breast region. If there is enough volume, this fat can also be used to add to the hips and buttocks to feminize the body shape.
For breast surgery using breast implants, please refer to our section under Breast Procedures. The operation is similar to a female breast augmentation, with the caveat that sometimes more than one procedure may be required to get enough stretch of the chest skin to accept a large implant.

MTF chest surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis and under general anesthesia in our accredited surgical facility. After the surgery, the treated areas will be bandaged and put into compression garments to encourage blood flow. For patients undergoing longer or multiple procedures, there is an option to recover in our overnight suite. The first followup appointment is the day after surgery when early results can be seen. The final results take months to fully mature.
Austin-Weston is pleased to provide convenient financing options to our patients. Estimating the cost of your procedure will be the first step in determining your out-of-pocket costs and possible insurance coverage. In most cases, unfortunately, insurance providers do not cover cosmetic procedures. However, our office will certainly confirm if any coverage is possible. We also offer a variety of payment options and can work with you on choosing a finance plan that is best for you and your needs.
