My experience has been absolutely fantastic! Let me start by saying that I am a male to female transgender person. I was on hormones for about two years around the time of my consult. If I'm being honest I had a lot of hope for what the hormones would be able to do for my breast development. I had some slightly developed breast tissue, but the form was off. They were really much more of a cone shape. Bottom line they were sort of a disappointment. I thought I would just wear a water or gel bra forever, but I decided to look into augmentation. I looked into a couple doctors in my area. I factored in the extremely convenient location and his high rating on another site. So I set up a consult.
The scheduling was flexible and easy. On the day of the first consult I met with Dr. Feins and interacted with his staff. Dr. Feins did a great job of explaining to me both the process, and the procedure, as well as what I should expect. He was attentive to my questions, as was his nursing staffing. He went over the options and set up sizing parameters, that would work on my frame. At this this point I was still on the fence. Dr. Feins allowed me to take a look at the options as far as the implants. Upon looking at them and seeing the feminizing effect I was absolutely in. It was kind of a fun process, the nurse was fantastic and was there for any questions. I think at that point I could really see the value in relation to the whole transitional process. I set up the surgery as soon as I could. There was no pressure to decide on a particular type or style in the decision process, and they were flexible on dates.
Surgery was August 9th. Any surgery is a little bit of a scary thing. At least to me anyway. Dr.Feins was very reassuring and took me through the process. The facility was very attentive to my needs. Surgery was what one would expect, and I think the pain was pretty manageable upon waking up. We went over after care so I was ready for discharge and ready to heal. The healing process was seamless and happened exactly as it was laid out for me. I think having been able to ask so many questions I was prepared for what to expect.
I'm Healing now and it hasn't been long, but let me say I don't really think I could be happier! The surgery and Dr.Feins have done wonders to help my self confidence. My breasts are rounded and fuller and has done wonders to feminize my overall shape. It's right up there in importance with the other major steps in my transitional process.
Both Dr. Feins and the staff were sensitive to my needs as a transitioning mtf. This surgery has done so much to help me achieve my goals and how I even perceive myself. I strongly recommend Dr. Feins. I think I made a great decision going with augmentation, and selecting Dr. Feins was a great decision as well. Life Changing!!!
