Can Breast Augmentation and Clavicle Reduction Surgery Be Done At The Same Time?

Q: Dr. Eppley,I  am a 25 year-old trans-woman. I’ve recently been shopping around for quotes for a breast augmentation as I have not had much growth over the years. I have also been following clavicle shortening over the past few years, as I have naturally broad shoulders and I believe it could help my case. Would these two surgeries be able to be preformed simultaneously?

A: Yes both breast augmentation and clavicle reduction surgeries would the able to be performed together. The real recovery is from the clavicle shortening and the breast augmentation doesn’t add much to the recovery.

Interestingly both breast augmentation and clavicle reduction surgery can be done in the same operative field. And also because of the visual closeness of the two anatomic areas one complements the effects of the other. (upper body feminization surgery)
