Dr. Barone and our staff understand that transgender plastic surgery is a personal, and often emotional, experience. We will protect your privacy before, during, and after treatment. It is our goal to provide you with the discreet and exceptional care you deserve.
Transgender Surgical Options
There are a number of surgical options that can safely and effectively help you achieve a more masculine or feminine appearance. We offer facial procedures that can rejuvenate and reshape your face, including cheek augmentation, brow lift, and lip augmentation, among others.
Dr. Barone can also use liposuction to enhance the contours of your body. With liposuction, fat can be removed from specific areas of the body to produce a more masculine or feminine shape. Depending on your goals, the fat extracted during liposuction can be injected into other areas to add volume to the lips, chest, buttocks, face, or hands.
Dr. Barone can help patients achieve a masculine, sculpted chest with amastectomy and possibly pectoral implants. She also performs TUBA (transumbilical breast augmentation) for minimal scarring and realistic-looking results. During this procedure, she will make a small incision in your navel and create the implant pocket. Next, Dr. Barone will place deflated implants, which are subsequently filled.
Meanwhile, if you want to achieve smoother skin and reduce the amount of time you spend shaving and waxing, our laser technician performs laser hair removal to reduce unwanted hair.

If you decide to move forward with surgery, she will perform advanced techniques to produce natural-looking results. Dr. Barone welcomes transgender patients from across the country.
Achieve a Beautiful Feminine Appearance with Transgender Breast Augmentation
Dr. Constance Barone performs fully customized breast augmentation to help transgender patients achieve the feminine figure they desire. She is one of only a few surgeons in the country using the transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA) method to treat transgender patients. This method requires no incisions in the breast area and results in minimal, easily concealed scarring. Dr. Barone can perform this procedure alone, or as part of a more comprehensive plastic surgery plan involving laser hair removal, lip augmentation, and more.
Transgender Breast Augmentation Candidates
Breast augmentation requires careful consideration and planning. Dr. Barone can help you determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure during your initial consultation. Together, you and Dr. Barone will review your medical history and discuss your goals in great detail to determine if breast augmentation or another procedure is the best way to meet your goals. In general, any patient considering breast augmentation should be in good physical health. Patients must confirm that they have stopped using supplements and medication that cause bleeding, since this can further complicate surgery. These include fish oil, aspirin, and herbal supplements.
The Transgender Breast Augmentation Procedure
Dr. Barone typically recommends TUBA breast augmentation to transgender patients because it results in minimal, easily concealed scarring. On the day of your surgery, Dr. Barone may administer general anesthesia, though she also provides “awake” breast augmentationusing only local anesthesia.
During surgery, Dr. Barone will make a small incision less than 2 centimeters in length in your navel. Next, she will insert insert an empty implant shell, which she will subsequently fill with sterile saline solution. You may choose a subtle increase in breast size, or a more dramatic increase to create large, shapely breasts. Once the implants are full, Dr. Barone will close your incisions.
Transgender and traditional breast implant surgery are performed in a similar manner. Patients transitioning from male to female have larger pectoral muscles, so Dr. Barone typically recommends subpectoral placement of the implants to create a more natural appearance. Dr. Barone performs breast augmentation with both saline and silicone implants via the nipple or the inframammary and transaxillary approach.
Transgender breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure, meaning you will can expect to return home the day of your surgery. We ask that you arrange for a friend or loved one drive you home following the procedure. Dr. Barone will provide you with very specific instructions for recovery in order to ensure that you achieve the greatest possible benefits
Benefits of Transgender Breast Augmentation
Transgender breast augmentation can help you achieve the appearance you want, and help you to feel comfortable and confident with your outward appearance. The TUBA placement method is especially beneficial since it results in virtually no visible scarring.
