Procedures for Female-to-Male Patients
For FTM patients, the main areas of focus are typically the chest and abdominal regions. Some FTM patients are also interested in body contouring to sculpt a masculine physique, calf implants for more muscular legs or facial procedures to transform the appearance of their face. Whatever your areas of concern, Dr. Eisemann is here to help. During an in-person consultation, he will discuss all of the options available to you and explain how transgender surgery can make your journey easier as you transition.
Sculpting a More Masculine Chest
Hormonal therapy is often a crucial first step in the physical transitioning process for many transgender and nonconforming individuals, but it may not provide satisfying results across all categories. For patients interested in creating a more masculine chest, Dr. Eisemann offers subcutaneous mastectomy breast reduction to help his FTM patients flatten their chests and build their ideal contours. Pectoral implants may also be placed during or following a breast reduction procedure to sculpt a masculine upper chest and create the look that better matches your identity.
Subcutaneous mastectomy breast reduction sometimes includes a nipple graft to maintain a natural appearance, alongside removal of the breast tissue. Dr. Eisemann will explain the procedure to you in detail during your consultation and determine if breast reduction surgery and pectoral implants should be a part of your individual treatment plan.
Creating Masculine Contours with Liposuction
Body contouring is popular among many transgender and nonconforming patients working to transition, as it can be used to eliminate stubborn fat and sculpt the abdomen, hips, waist and back. Unwanted stomach fat is a nearly universal area of concern, and Dr. Eisemann can remove stubborn fat to help you achieve a slimmer and tighter abdomen. With liposuction surgery, Dr. Eisemann can recontour your physique and get your one step closer to living authentically.
Transitioning to a Masculine Facial Profile
Certain facial characteristics are often associated with a masculine appearance, and procedures like rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, cheek augmentation and chin augmentation can be used to effectively achieve the features of a male face. Cheek implants can add depth and shape to your face with long-lasting results. Chin implants can help build a stronger and more pronounced jaw, and neck liposuction can also be used to further tighten your jawline.
Nonsurgical treatment options like Botox and dermal fillers can also provide transformative results without the side effects and downtime of surgery. Whatever your needs, Dr. Eisemann can create a unique treatment plan that brings your desired appearance to life. Schedule a consultation today to learn how Dr. Eisemann can create a personalized treatment plan based on your needs.
Procedures for Male-to-Female Patients
For transitioning male patients wishing for a more feminine appearance, most MTF procedures are designed to address traits in the chest and face. Transgender breast implants and liposuction can give you the above the waist curves you desire, while tracheal shaving can eliminate the bothersome Adam’s apple that is a common nuisance among MTF patients. Some MTF patients may opt for a Brazilian butt lift or buttocks augmentation using implants to help them achieve a curvier, sexier rear end. Laser hair removal can also play an important role in removing unwanted leg, underarm or body hair to create a smoother and more feminine appearance.
If you are an MTF patient interested in transitioning your appearance, schedule a consultation with Dr. Eisemann to learn more about all of the options available to you.
Build Your Perfect Chest with Breast Augmentation
With breast augmentation using implants, Dr. Eisemann can customize your new breasts according to your frame and your desired results. With a breadth of choices available, including implant type, size, texture and placement, Dr. Eisemann will work with you to ensure your breast augmentation procedure delivers life-changing, satisfying results.
The World Professional Association for Transgender Health recommends MTF patients undergo at least one year of hormone therapy before opting for a breast augmentation procedure, although this is not required. Some patients find that hormone therapy alone is sufficient for their needs, but your experience may vary. Whatever your decision, Dr. Eisemann will be happy to discuss the transgender breast augmentation procedure with you in detail during your in-person consultation.
Enjoy a Curvier, More Feminine Backside with Buttocks Augmentation
Buttocks augmentation is a popular procedure among many patients due to its ability to sculpt a curvier and more youthful rear end. For MTF patients, buttocks augmentation can be performed alongside liposuction for comprehensive body contouring. A Brazilian butt lift uses fat taken from other areas of your body via liposuction to augment the size and shape of your backside, ensuring a completely natural procedure with a low risk of adverse side effects and complications. Buttocks implants are also a viable choice for many MTF patients and can be customized according to your body goals.
Dr. Eisemann will discuss the differences between the two procedures and help you come to an informed decision during your consultation.
Creating a More Feminine Face
Facial plastic surgery for MTF patients typically focuses on reshaping the facial profile for a softer, more feminine appearance. Commonly performed procedures include rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty, brow lift, cheek augmentation and lip implants. Using the wide variety of treatment options available, Dr. Eisemann can help you sculpt a face that better complements your gender identity, ensuring the person you see in the mirror matches how you view yourself.
Nonsurgical treatment options, including Botox injections and dermal fillers, allow for more subtle results that can be tweaked and adjusted according to your preference. Results are also temporary and reversible, making it an easier choice for many patients hesitant about surgical treatment options.
At Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, we understand that your face is a reflection of your identity and believe it should match your authentic self. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Eisemann to learn how he can use surgical and nonsurgical procedures to help you reveal your true identity.
