What Is Transgender Breast Surgery?

Transgender breast surgery is a key component of the transition process for many individuals, designed to align one’s physical appearance with their gender identity. At our practice, Dr. Kaweski offers tailored breast surgery options to cater to the unique needs of transgender patients, whether it’s to feminize or masculinize their chest.

How Does Transgender Breast Surgery Work?

Transgender breast surgery is a meticulously designed procedure that ensures safety and effectiveness for individuals seeking to align their physical features with their gender identity. Grounded in extensive research, this surgery is just as safe for the transfeminine population as it is for cisgender patients, offering peace of mind and confidence in the process. Typically completed within one to two hours, the procedure offers a range of options similar to those available to cisgender women, including breast augmentation with various types of implants and the option of enhancing the outcome through fat grafting, also known as lipofilling. This flexibility allows for a personalized approach to achieving the desired breast appearance, ensuring that each individual’s aesthetic goals are met with precision and care.

Transgender Breast Surgery Timeline and Process


During your initial consultation, Dr. Kaweski will discuss your aesthetic goals, evaluate your health, and explain the various options available for transgender breast surgery. This is a key time to ask questions and set realistic expectations for the surgery's outcomes.

Preoperative Prep

Once you've decided to proceed, Dr. Kaweski will provide detailed instructions to prepare for surgery, which may include guidelines on diet, medication adjustments, and cessation of smoking. Preoperative testing is also conducted to ensure your safety during the procedure.

Surgery Day

On the day of your surgery, you'll arrive at the hospital or surgery center where Dr. Kaweski will perform the breast augmentation or masculinization, typically taking one to two hours. You'll be under general anesthesia, ensuring you're comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure.

Postoperative Care

Immediately after surgery, you'll be closely monitored in a recovery area. Dr. Kaweski and the medical team will provide care to manage any discomfort and ensure the initial healing process is on track, giving specific instructions for at-home care before you leave.

Recovery and Follow-Up Appointments

Recovery varies by individual, with many returning to light activities within a week, but it may take several weeks to fully resume all activities.

What types of breast surgery options are available for transgender patients?

For transgender patients, we offer a range of breast surgery options tailored to individual needs, including breast augmentation with implants for transfeminine individuals and breast reduction or chest masculinization procedures for transmasculine individuals. The choice of procedure depends on your transition goals and the current state of your chest.

How do I know which size or type of implant is right for me?

During your consultation, Dr. Kaweski will discuss your aesthetic goals and help you decide on the size and type of implant that best suits your body frame and desired outcome. This decision is based on various factors, including your body structure, skin elasticity, and personal preferences.

Is transgender breast surgery safe?

Yes, transgender breast surgery is considered safe, with a risk profile similar to that of cisgender individuals undergoing breast augmentation. Dr. Kaweski follows stringent safety protocols to minimize risks and ensure the best outcomes. However, as with any surgery, it’s important to discuss potential risks and complications.

What can I expect during the recovery process?

Recovery varies by individual and procedure but generally involves some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first few weeks. Dr. Kaweski will provide specific postoperative care instructions, including how to manage discomfort and when you can resume normal activities. Most patients can return to light activities within a week, with a full return to all activities within several weeks.

How long will it take to see the final results of my surgery?

While you will notice changes immediately after surgery, it can take several months for the swelling to fully subside and the implants to settle into their final position. The skin and tissues need time to adjust to the new shape, so the final results may not be fully apparent until about six months post-surgery. Dr. Kaweski will monitor your progress through follow-up appointments to ensure optimal healing.
