MtF transgender individuals may develop some breast tissue after hormone therapy, but the size may remain small. For larger breasts, a transgender individual needs breast augmentation surgery. In breast augmentation surgery, a breast implant is placed inside the breasts to not only increase the size of breasts but can also improve the shape of breasts.
LTC are now offering the revolutionary B-Lite lightweight breast implants which are ⅓ lighter than standard implants.
REASON FOR SURGERY
To increase the size of the breasts, which can also lead to additional comfort and confidence in your female gender.
This result can improve self-confidence and boost self-esteem, allowing you to feel more comfortable in your female gender.
How much does it cost?
The price of breast augmentation with B-Lite lightweight implants is approximately £7,150. For standard silicone implants the cost is approximately £5,800. This includes all of your pre and post operative aftercare up to one year, as well as your time in hospital. For an exact quotation please book a consultation with a member of our team.
What happens at the consultation?
You will meet your surgeon and one of our nurses who will ask you about your goals and concerns. A full medical history and examination will be done, before agreeing a plan for you and discussing the surgery and recovery and risks in detail.
Your surgeon will ask you to provide images of your chest following your remote consultation, allowing them to create 3D images incorporating various implant sizes that you are considering. This allows you to get a better idea of what can be achieved from the surgery. This is optional.
At your follow up appointment, prior to surgery, you can also take part in a virtual reality (VR) experience of your desired breast size. This is optional.
You may be required to undergo medical investigations such as blood tests, ECG or other, as medically advised by your surgeon.
How do I prepare for my surgery?
Once you have your consultations and your surgery is booked, you will have a pre-operative assessment with your nurse 2 weeks before surgery, during which any outstanding questions will be answered. Your preparation for surgery will be reviewed and information will be provided regarding medications, diet, and post operative care.
You will not need to stop your hormone therapy.
You must stop smoking a minimum of 2 weeks before your surgery and up to 12 weeks postoperatively.
What happens on the day of my surgery?
On the day of your surgery you will attend the hospital where your surgery is taking place. You will be reassessed by your surgeon and your anaesthetist before going to the theatre. The hospital team will complete the necessary pre-operative health checks.
Following your surgery, you will be bed bound and closely monitored by the hospital medical team. They will assist you with anything you need. You will be tired and spend most of this time resting. You will be provided with something to eat when you are alert and slowly mobilised with assistance.
Once you are awake and mobile, you will be discharged from the hospital to your home. You must have a chaperone to bring you home and stay with you for a minimum of 24 hours.
What aftercare will be provided for me?
LTC provides a premium aftercare service. You will be assessed 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 12 weeks, 6 months and 1 year post operatively to monitor your progress.
You will be provided with post operative manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) therapy to reduce swelling and promote better healing.
LTC also has a nurse on call 24/7 in the event you have any emergencies following discharge from hospital. You will be seen immediately if medically required or appropriate advice will be provided.
What happens if there is a complication?
In the event of a complication you will be medically assessed as soon as possible by your surgeon or a qualified member of our nursing team. In the unlikely event you need to return to the theatre this will be arranged for you by our team. Hospital and anaesthetist fees may be charged, however there will be no surgical fee. Further information is outlined in our terms and conditions.

Septo-Rhinoplasty and Breast Augmentation Surgery
After much researching I decided to have Breast Augmentation and Septo-Rhinoplasty with London Transgender Clinic and Weymouth Street Hospital. I found Mr Inglefield, Phyllis, Lynsey and all the staff extremely professional, friendly and helpful. They treated me with respect and always had time to answer any questions or queries that I had. Although I am at 6 weeks post op I am more than happy with the results so far with no visible scars on my nose and minimal scarring on my chest that will gradually fade. Thank you LTC 😀
