Trish: So I’m here today with Amelia. Amelia is transgender and today is the day that she’s having her breast augmentation so it’s a massive day for her today. So I just want you to introduce to Amelia and she can tell us a little bit about what is happening today.

Amelia Post OpTrish: So, Amelia, are you excited?

Amelia: Yes! I’m over the moon.

Trish: Fantastic!

Amelia: I’m nervous but I’m excited. It’s a long time coming.

Trish: Great. So tell us what are you actually having done today?

Amelia: So today I’m having a breast augmentation. I’m having 520cc high profile over the muscle – silicone cohesive gel; and I’m also having a little bit of lip filler as well.

Trish: How important is this on your journey?

Amelia: Oh my goodness, it’s so important. So for me, I’ve been planning to get my boobs done since I was 16, probably like a lot of girls. But for me it’s so important with part of my transition it’s helping me with my confidence. It’s helping me feel more womanly. I’m a curvy girl. And I’ve only got curves on the lower half of my body. I want the curves up top.

Trish: Sure, totally. Well, what we’re going to do; we’re going to be sharing this journey with Amelia today so we are about to go in now.

Amelia: Yes!

Trish: Very exciting. We’ll catch you in a minute.

Amelia: Yay!


Amelia: I’m feeling really good. I feel really tired. And I feel really tight. But I feel really good; I’m excited to see how it all looks.

Trish: I’m here today with Dr Ali Hussain who practices in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney as well.

Trish: So, thank you so much. You just done Amelia’s surgery; she’s just had breast augmentation.

Dr Hussain: Yes.

Trish: So Amelia’s transgender so obviously it’s different to a regular breast augmentation. So what’s the difference between the usual breast augmentation that you perform compared to what you performed today with the Amelia?

Dr Hussain: The skin is not that stretchable which obviously you have in a female so that’s one of the things which you need to take into consideration more deciding on the size what you have to do. In a transgender, the inframmamary crease where the implant sits is not well defined as well. So in the surgery you need to redefine the inframmamary crease; you have to create that to give a good shape of the breast to the patient. I had training from UK and I’ve seen quite few transgender seeking this operation and I just start at the first procedure to be looking more feminine.

Trish: Great. Well, thank you so much for taking time today.

Trish: So if you’d like to see Dr Ali Hussain, you can drop us an email at [email protected] or click below this link. Thank you so much for taking time to talk to us today.

Dr Hussain: Thank you.
