For transmen and transwomen the choice to have reconstructive chest surgery or breast augmentation can be a long and difficult process.
At the clinic we are committed to helping patients at what can be a very anxious, and exciting, time by providing straightforward advice and a sensitive approach to some very personal decisions.
Chest reconstruction is available as an out-patient procedure with various options including keyhole or peri-areolar approaches, or a double incision technique.
Breast augmentation can also be performed on-site with a variety of implants to suit your specific needs and desires.
