MTF and MTN Breast Augmentation
Many trans women and transfeminine folks choose Breast Augmentation to increase not just bust size but to also boost confidence and self-esteem. Dr. Mosser specializes in MTF and MTN Breast Augmentation and offers both saline and silicone breast implants. Choosing implants is a decision based on a few different factors which Dr. Mosser will discuss with you in detail during your consultation.
The surgery itself is typically an outpatient procedure done under general anesthesia that lasts 1-1.5 hours. The implants are inserted through a small incision, usually at the bottom of the breast (inframammary fold.) Recovery is fairly quick. Some bruising and swelling is common in the first few weeks after surgery, and Dr. Mosser will prescribe pain medication to lessen any discomfort you experience during recovery.
Cost of MTF and MTN Breast Augmentation: $7200-$8200
Body Feminization uses liposuction to create feminine body contours. (The procedure is also referred to as Body Contouring and Body Sculpting.) Dr. Mosser can treat multiple areas of the body, including hips, flank, back, abdomen and buttocks, to provide a more feminine body contour.
Cost of Body Feminization: $5000-$10,000
Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular feminizing procedure provides a fuller, curvier, and more lifted backside. This is done using a fat transplant process, where fat is removed via liposuction and strategically transplanted to the buttocks. Implants and silicone injections are not used for this procedure.
