Breast Surgery for Gender Reassignment

By Elena Prousskaia MD, FRCS (Plast), FEBOPRAS

Having trained in oncoplastic surgery I can offer you a full mastectomy to remove breast tissue.

Alternatively, for male to female reassignment, Elena can carry out a one-stage breast augmentation using implants. If you prefer a larger cup size, it may be necessary for the surgery to be performed in two stages using expanders first, followed by implants later.

How Elena can help with Breast Surgery for Gender Reassignment

You will be able to make a decision about the right surgical option for you following a long conversation and examination in the clinic.

It is normal to have a second consultation, for you to ask any further questions, once you have had time to consider the different surgical options. After the decision is made we will carefully prepare for your surgery.

Elena will talk you through all the necessary pre-surgery investigations, as well as the after-care required. She will also fully explain the risks associated with the operation. We will only go ahead with the procedure once you are completely ready and happy with the choice we have made together.

What Is The Likley Recovery Time For Gender Reassignment?

The recovery tends to be similar to other breast procedures. The final result will be seen 3-6 months after surgery once swelling has settled down. You should rest and avoid any physical activity in the first 48 hours after surgery.
You should avoid all sport activities, housework such as hovering, driving, dog walking, holding a baby in your arms and any weight lifting for at least 4- 6 weeks following the surgery.

Is This Procedure Painful ?

After surgery it is normal to experience some discomfort, the level of which varies widely amongst patients. There is rarely prolonged pain unless there is a complication and in all cases you will be prescribed pain medication.

What Is The Difference Between This And Breast Reduction ?

Breast tissue removal for Female to Male transition in most of cases is performed with horizontal scars and free nipple areolar graft to achieve male chest shape. Breast tissue removal can be combined with liposuction and skin tightening to avoid skin excess in large volume breast tissue removal.

WHAT DO ELENA'S PATIENTS SAY...

Elena is an OUTSTANDING surgeon. I had PIP implants and was looking to have them changed. I knew Elena was the surgeon to help, she put me at ease and explained my options. The lovely ladies in her office were helpful, I wanted to get sorted asap, when an alternative date was available contacted me straight away. I received outstanding care from start to finish from Elena, her team and the hospital.  The aftercare is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, can call any time. I was so relaxed, I knew I was in great hands.  The final results are fantastic. Elena has worked magic and I couldn’t be happier.  I’m so glad I found her. I can’t thank her and her team enough.  

LMS – implant Removal & Replacement

I have been self conscious for the whole of my adult life and I cannot express how much this surgery  has changed things for me. Both mentally and physically. I highly recommend Elena. She supported me throughout my journey from start to finish. Elena is very particular which for me is really important. Elena really took care of me from initial consultation right through to surgery and aftercare.My scaring is minimal and I am absolutely over the moon with my results. Thank you Elena!

JB – Breast Reduction

I have been both physically and mentally uncomfortable in my body since I was 12. I was born with ‘breast mutation’ and I first had surgery to correct this through the NHS at 16 years old. The surgery I have had with Elena, 17 years later, has removed the NHS implants, one of which had ruptured, and completely altered the shape of my chest. By doing this she has made me look and feel like a woman for the first time in my life. She is at all times quietly kind and fiercely adept. A true artist. She has surrounded herself with the most wonderful team and I cannot thank them all enough for the new lease of life that I have been given.

EG – Removal & Replacement of Implants

Elena was recommended to me and as soon as I met her I felt entirely comfortable. Her explanations made sense in terms of expectations. Having made the big decision I did feel nervous but had absolute trust and confidence in Elena. I knew I was in the best hands. Elena's team is so supportive, my questions were answered with patience and understanding. My care at the McIndoe Centre was excellent. I am five weeks post op for abdominoplasty and liposuction and last week. Quite amazing to see the before and after pictures! I am so pleased that I was fortunate enough to meet Elena and have no hesitation in recommending her.

SM – Abdominoplasty & Liposuction

Had surgery with Elena in September, I was extremely anxious about the whole thing, but Elena and her whole team, from admin to the hospital staff were amazing with me and reassured me throughout my journey. I can not recommend Elena enough, and she has changed my life for the better! Already saving for my next operation with her!
