A tansgender patient asks by e-mail:
I am “gender variant”, my figure is quite lean. Is a breast augmentation with stem cells and autologous fat suitable for me? I’d like to achieve a moderate B cup.
The procedure of breast augmentation with stem cells is in general suitable for transsexuals. In individual cases it would be necessary to clarify if enough fat can be harvested to accomplish this desired augmentation of the breast. In addition the breast’s flexibility has to be increased to create enough space for the implanted stem cell-enriched autologous fat. This can be done by wearing a suction bra (e.g., BRAVA system) for several weeks before having the procedure.
