It stands to reason that you would want gender confirmation surgery to be performed by a cosmetic surgeon who respects you, treats your wishes with understanding, and who performs the surgery with the utmost precision. At Austin Cosmetic Surgery, you can expect concierge-style, quality care, from a cosmetic surgeon who brings a deep and abiding respect to patients on this highly personal, critical journey, Dr. Michelle Cabret.

MTF top surgery

MTF top surgery is performed to create a feminine figure by enhancing the breast size with implants. The procedure involves selecting the type, size, and projection of the implants that will create your vision for your figure. Dr. Michelle Cabret will work closely with you at every step of the process and can offer professional guidance to help you choose the ideal shape and size for your frame.

The procedure is performed under anesthesia, which may be general or intravenous sedation.

In either case, you will not experience any pain or discomfort during the surgery, and when you wake up and become alert, your new breasts will be in place.

The implants chosen are placed beneath the chest muscles, which provides a beautiful outcome, with a smooth, rounded shape that looks and feels soft, bouncy, and natural. The implants are placed in a surgical pocket, created by your surgeon. Dr. Cabret has this procedure down to a fine art, having performed hundreds of breast augmentation surgeries over more than two decades in practice.

What is the recovery time after MTF top surgery?

After your procedure, you will need one to two weeks to rest and recover and enjoy the first results of your beautiful new breasts. You must avoid any vigorous physical activities for about four weeks, and the full results, with the implants fully settled into place, is typically achieved at about eight weeks.

FTM top surgery

FTM top surgery is essentially the removal of breast or chest tissue to create a flatter, masculine chest contour. This surgery is often extremely rewarding for the patient, who has dreamed of the day when he can be free of feminine breasts, with a chest area that is remarkably masculine in appearance. These surgeries are performed with ultimate precision when under the care of Dr. Michelle Cabret. Rather than simply removing breast glandular and fat tissue, she carefully repositions and resculpts the area to create a more attractive outcome.

This procedure is performed under general anesthesia, administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. At Austin Cosmetic Surgery, we are committed to ensuring the highest level of patient health and safety. Our state-of-the-art clinic has an onsite surgery center, where FTM top surgery can be performed in privacy, with personalized care in an exclusive setting.

Recovery after FTM top surgery?

After your surgery, you will be released to return home to rest and recover, under the care of another adult. The recovery time is in the range of two weeks, as the body, and the incisions, need time to fully heal, and the tissues to knit.

Your chest area will be protected with a compression garment, and you will have prescription pain medication to keep you comfortable in the early stage of healing. Plan for a friend or family member to stay with you for the first day or two, as your mobility will be limited after the surgery.

You must not lift your arms above your shoulder, lift anything weighing over five pounds, and Dr. Cabret will inform you when it is safe to return to your exercise routine. In the meantime, ensure you take gentle walks every day to stimulate blood circulation and faster healing.
