Breast Implant Options for Trans Women

When considering trans breast augmentation, consult with an experienced gender-affirming surgeon to understand the options. Each option has unique characteristics and benefits. The choice of implant type and placement method is a deeply personal decision. It's often influenced by body shape, desired outcome, and individual preferences. Below are two breast implant options.

Saline Implants:

Saline implants are made of a silicone shell filled with sterile saltwater. The implants are usually inserted empty and then filled. Their size can be adjusted during surgery.

Silicone Gel Implants:

These implants consist of a silicone outer shell filled with silicone gel. They are known for their natural feel and appearance, making them a popular choice for transgender breast implants.
