About MTF Surgery

MTF (Male to Female) gender affirming surgery represents a series of specialized procedures within the field of plastic surgery aimed at aligning an individual’s physical appearance with their identified female gender. This transformative journey includes various surgical options such as breast augmentation, body contouring, and facial feminization surgeries, each tailored to enhance feminine features and assist individuals in reflecting their true selves. Dr. Matthew Lewis combines advanced surgical techniques with a deep understanding of the nuances of femininity to create results that look natural and feel congruent with each patient’s identity. In the realm of MTF surgery, the goal is to provide a physical transition that mirrors the individual's inner beauty and essence, offering a path to living authentically and confidently.

How MTF Surgery Helps You Express Your Identity

MTF surgery encompasses a range of procedures designed to align one's physical appearance with one's female identity, focusing on key areas:

Breast Augmentation:

  • Utilizes implants (silicone or saline) to enhance breast size and shape, tailored to the individual’s desired outcome.
  • May involve fat grafting for a more natural look and feel, where suitable.

Body Contouring:

  • Liposuction to remove excess fat from targeted areas, such as the waist and abdomen, enhancing feminine curves.
  • Fat grafting to areas like the hips and buttocks to create a more traditionally feminine silhouette.

Facial Feminization Surgery:

  • Scalp advancement and hairline lowering to reduce the forehead size and adjust the hairline for a more feminine appearance.
  • Rhinoplasty to refine the nose shape and size, aligning it more closely with feminine proportions.
  • Jaw and chin contouring to soften the angles of the lower face, creating a more oval or heart-shaped facial structure.
  • Cheek augmentation through implants or fat grafting enhances cheek fullness and achieves a softer, more feminine contour.
