MTF Breast Augmentation in Wisconsin

Dr. King approaches MTF Breast Augmentation surgery as a union between science and aesthetics, and the results he achieves are beautiful and natural looking.

Dr. King will discuss with you the differences between silicone and saline breast implants, and help you choose which implants are most appropriate to your goals. Breast condition, body type, skin tone, age, and overall health are all considered when evaluating breast implants.

The Breast Augmentation procedure begins with an incision made around the areola, beneath the breast, or under the arm. The incision is small and subtle, to help conceal scarring. A customized breast implant is inserted through the incision and positioned, then the incisions are closed and bandaged. Breast Augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis, lasting about two hours, under general anesthesia, with an recovery time of about one week. Breast Augmentation can also be combined with a breast lift.

Payment: Dr. King accepts cash, credit card, CareCredit, and insurance, as well as Medicare and Medicaid.

Requirements: Dr. King follows WPATH standards. A letter from a psychologist stating that the patient is ready for surgery is required.

Dr. King and his staff look forward to speaking with you and will be pleased to answer any questions you might have.
