Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) is a cornerstone in successful MTF transition. It is critical that key components of the facial features be addressed in FFS.
Breast augmentation in the MTF patient requires an understanding, on the part of the surgeon, of the differences in pectoral muscle characteristics between female and male anatomy.
MTF patients typically start female hormones prior to sex re-assignment surgery (SRS). In conjunction with hormone replacement therapy, MTF patients typically take testosterone-blocking medications such as aldactone to block testosterone that is produced by the testes.
Liposuction and Body Shaping
Body shaping procedures in the MTF patient are aimed at optimizing the female shape. This typically involves performing liposuction throughout areas of the mid-body such as the abdomen, midriff, flanks (love handles), and mid-back.
