Regardless of where you are on your journey, Dr. Jacobs will be ready to assist you. If you are right in the beginning, he will help educate you and give you all the necessary information.

Whether you decide to go ahead with top surgery or decide against it, he is looking forward to getting to know you and your consultation will be time well spent. 

What are the benefits of MTF top surgery in Boca Raton?

While it is a relatively straightforward procedure, top surgery changes lives and the preparation process is very important. Even if you are quite certain that you are ready to go ahead with surgery, Dr. Jacobs will take his time to make sure you are fully informed and ready to take the next step.

In individuals who are fully physically and emotionally ready, top surgery can:

  • Relieve gender dysphoria (the distress or unhappiness of feeling that your biological sex doesn’t match your gender identity)
  • Improve your self-esteem and body image
  • Improve your social and professional relationships
  • Make you more comfortable with your clothing and personal style, since your body more closely reflects your gender

What are my options for MTF top surgery in Boca Raton?

Depending on your personal goals, Dr. Jacobs will devise a personalized surgery plan for you. If you are looking to add a small amount of volume, a fat transfer may be an option. In most cases, breast implants are your best bet. Both saline and silicone implants may be used. Silicone implants are often the better choice for transgender females, as the silicone gel typically makes for a more natural look and feel.

Other aspects to consider are implant size and placement. Dr. Jacobs will go over all these factors with you thoroughly and ensure you know all about the pros and cons of your different options. Your satisfaction is extremely important to him, and he will take all the needed time to ensure every detail is in place.

How long is the recovery time?

The procedure itself is relatively straightforward. Dr. Jacobs will perform your surgery in our Boca Raton ambulatory operating room suite. You will be under twilight sedation for the full duration of your procedure, which normally takes between 1 and 2 hours. You should be able to leave a few hours later. You should expect some bruising and soreness for the first few days, and you will need to take at least a week off from work. Dr. Jacobs will give you detailed post-operative instructions to help you recover as smoothly and rapidly as possible.
