Gender Reassignment: Male-to-Female (MTF)

If you're a trans woman here in Toronto, facial feminization surgery and MTF breast augmentation are some of the most exciting components of your transition - an opportunity for you to begin visualizing the face and body of the real you. Dr. Marc DuPéré offers a number of options that can be customized to your own journey, from subtle nonsurgical improvements to full-body transformations.

Breast Augmentation

MTF chest surgery is often quite straightforward, but some people will require tissue expansion prior to having breast implants inserted. Dr. DuPéré will discuss this with you in detail at your consultation.

Dr. DuPéré performs breast augmentation, and you have many choices regarding your final look. For example, the decision between silicone and saline breast implants can be daunting, as they both have their advantages. For example, while many people feel silicone implants yield results that look and feel more natural, others are drawn to the saltwater filling and lower cost of saline. Only you can decide which option is right for you, although Dr. DuPéré guides you through the decision-making process to ensure you make the best choice for your body and lifestyle.

Breast augmentation is performed while you are completely asleep under general anesthesia. Dr. DuPéré makes an incision around the lower edge of your areola, in your armpit, or in the area where your breast crease will be. He creates a pocket in the tissue and inserts the implant. Dr. DuPéré uses a device called the Keller Funnel, which eliminates direct contact with the implant. This minimizes the risk of infection and later complications.

Recovery & Results

MTF breast augmentation patients should expect to be comfortably back to work within about 1 week. If you work at a more physically demanding job, you may need to take longer or work a modified schedule. It's also important to refrain from strenuous physical activities, especially those that involve your upper body, for about 6 weeks after surgery.

Immediately after your breast surgery, you may notice that your breasts look high or tight on your chest. This is normal. Because this surgery is typically performed on patients with very little existing breast tissue, it takes some time for the skin and surrounding tissues to acclimate to the presence of the implant. Over time, the tissues will soften and the implants will sink to more natural-looking positions on the chest. This process is gradual and can take several months.

Other Options

Hip Augmentation | Hip implants can create the soft, sexy contours that form the base of an hourglass figure.

Buttock Augmentation | Whether through Brazilian butt lift or buttock implants, buttock augmentation can improve the shape and size of your buttocks for beautiful softness.

Fat Grafting | Your own fat, taken from another area of your body, can be used to enhance your breasts, face, and more.

Liposuction | Selectively remove unwanted fat deposits and improve your curves with liposuction. Dr. DuPéré uses a special technique that minimizes contour irregularities.

Brow Lift | This facial procedure can be used to lower the hairline and reduce the visual weight of a heavy brow.

Nose Refinement | Better known as rhinoplasty, this surgery is appropriate for MTF patients because it can feminize the nose.

Dermal Fillers | These injectable products can be used to subtly augment the cheeks or lips for attractive, soft facial curvature or a beautiful pout.

Dr. DuPéré also performs the tracheal shave procedure to reduce the look of a prominent Adam's apple. He will cover all of your options for you during your personal, candid consultation.

No matter where you are in your transition, Dr. DuPéré has the tools and the sensitivity to meet you where you are. Request your consultation right here on our website, or call Visage Clinic at (416) 929-9800 to schedule your visit.
