Breast augmentation surgeries in women are one of the most preferred cosmetic surgery procedures. For aesthetic and functional reasons, thousands of women choose breast augmentation with implants every year. But what about the men? Although not as much as women, men also prefer breast implants to see themselves as complete women, especially after the male-to-female gender reassignment process. Although the process differs slightly from males than females (due to differences such as chest shape and skin elasticity), it proceeds with almost the same principles.

How Does it Work?

For people who have undergone transgender surgery, feeling fully female is one of the most important wishes of their new life. And this goes through the breasts. But even after long years of hormone therapy, the tissues of the natural mammary glands are rarely sufficient to achieve a typically female profile. Breast augmentation using implants allows you to reach the ideal figure.

What Does a Male Breast Implants Surgery Involve?

  • Consultation for Male Breast Implants: After you submit your request for information, you will take an online consultation to make sure that you are a suitable candidate for the male breast implants surgery. During this consultation, your complaints and story will be learned in detail and your current health condition and surgical history will be required. The imaging results, blood tests or photos will be very useful to evaluate your case. Taking all this into account, we can prepare and offer a customized treatment plan for you.
  • Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic: This is the stage where you choose one of the clinics and surgeons that we offer you according to your criteria and expectations, and also where we arrange the date and trip plan that suits you upon your preferred clinic/surgeon.
  • Final Consultation with Your Surgeon: When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon who performs your male breast implants surgery. Everything about your surgery will be discussed between you and your surgeon during this consultation. The surgeon will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations and goals better and also make you understand what you should expect from your treatment and the potential risks or complications of the procedure. You will also decide together the individualized surgical and recovery plan that can be followed, especially during the first 24 to 48 hours after the surgery. At this stage, it is very important to find the answers to all the questions you have in mind. The surgeon will explain the whole process clearly and try to simulate it as much as possible, in order you to feel ready and relax.
  • Medical Examinations: Before the surgery begins, your surgeon will conduct physical and blood tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the surgery. Also, before surgery, a computer-based examination will be carried out. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the surgery and if any risk detected, surgeons try to eliminate them first.
  • Surgery: The procedure to enhance the male breasts is similar to that applied to women. After applying general anesthesia, an approximately 3 cm long incision is made. Then the surgeon creates a pocket behind each breast (either submuscular or subglandular). After the pockets are made, a saline or silicone implant of suitable size is inserted and adjusted for optimal position. The incision is closed and recovery begins. Many different methods can be used to perform incisions, most common ones are:

1.    Transaxillary - This incision is made under the patient's armpit. This is the common technique for male breast implants procedure

2.    Periareolar - In this technique, the incision is made on the outer edge of the nipple.

3.    Inframammary – The surgeon makes the incision under the breast; with this method, any surgical scar can be hidden.


What Should I Expect from Male Breast Implants?

  • You may walk slowly and resume light daily activities the day after surgery.
  • It’s advised to wait 7 to 10 days for stretching and heavy lifting exercises.
  • You can return to non-strenuous activities within 3 to 7 days.
  • You can drive a week after surgery
  • Most swelling, bruising and soreness disappear within 4 to 6 weeks.
  • You can start strenuous activities in 6 to 8 weeks.
  • You should be cautious during the first two months and carefully follow your home care as recommended by your doctor.
  • Your final bra size will be determined within 10 to 12 weeks.
  • Your surgical scar will continue to fade for up to two years.

Things You Should Consider Before Male Breast Implants Surgery

  • You should get all the lab testing and visit your surgeon to make him/her evaluate your current health status
  • Your surgeon may prescribe you a certain medication or may adjust your current medications
  • You should stop smoking and maintain a healthy balance for alcohol consumption
  • Avoiding to take aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements is also important because it can increase bleeding in the whole process of Male Breast Implants.



Is Male Breast Implants Procedure Painful?

Although postoperative pain is rare, it can be experienced, to relieve this pain your surgeon will prescribe you proper pain medication.

What Happens at The Consultation with The Surgeon?

The plastic surgeon will assess whether you can have breast implants and what procedures will be required to achieve a more feminine silhouette. For this, it takes into account the principles of plastic and cosmetic surgery, in which your anatomy and parts of the body must remain compatible with each other.

How Long Does Breast Implants Last?

It is estimated that most of the breast implants last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. However, some breast implants may be removed sooner due to complications or personal preferences.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
