MTF Body Contouring in San Diego, CA

32 Procedures ( View All )


While many MTF clients are understandably focused on top and bottom surgery, body contouring with fat grafting cannot be overlooked as a significant method of feminizing the figure. Also known as body feminization surgery (BFS), body sculpting can create beautiful, soft curves, enhancing your self-confidence, as well as your fit in clothing and swimwear.

Surgical Technique

Body Feminization can include a variety of procedures, including Brazilian butt lift, liposuction, abdominoplasty, arm lift.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Transforming your body to match your identity may require enhancing your buttocks with a Brazilian butt lift. When excess fat is harvested from the waist, thighs, back, or arms, purified and then injected into the buttocks, it allows you to achieve a beautiful curvy look that is unmistakably feminine. A BBL is one of the most common feminization procedures we perform.


Creating your body is your right and we are here to help. Liposuction can remove excess fat at the waist or thighs to create a more sculpted, feminine figure. For MTF body contouring, we can create a narrower waistline by removing excess fat in the tummy area. The results create a remarkable change in your appearance that is exceptionally rewarding. The process requires a few weeks for the swelling to fade, and you will have to avoid strenuous lifting for at least a month, but you will enjoy your new figure for years. The fat removed with liposuction is gone forever, leaving your body looking sculpted, trim, and naturally feminine.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Restructuring the abdomen is often needed for the feminization process. You may have developed loosened abdominal muscles, and have excess fat and skin affecting your figure. Creating a lovely, sculpted look can be achieved with a custom abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Not only with the excess fat and tissue be removed, but we focus the surgery on creating a flat tummy, a trimmer waist, and a look that reflects your true identity.

Arm Lift

Your upper arms can be resculpted to create a more refined, feminine look. Imagine revealing your upper arms in sleeveless tops, swimsuits, and other revealing clothing. You have the right to create the body you want, and if your upper arms are a problem for you, we are here to help.

Durning/After Surgery

Body Feminization is a commonly performed and safe procedure performed in an accredited surgical center or hospital under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. General anesthesia is typically used to ensure safety and patient comfort. Feminization procedures on multiple parts of the body can typically be done all at the same time. However, based on patient wishes and recovery time, Dr. Champaneria may also space out the procedures to give your body time to heal between operations. There are multiple ways to time the operations, and Dr. Champaneria will work closely with you to establish a timeline that is safe, personalized, and effective for you. In either case, patients will be carefully walked through any postoperative suggestions and guidelines and be able to get any questions they may have answered so they are confident and comfortable. The surgery usually takes about 2 to 4 hours, depending on the procedure. For the first several weeks, the surgeon will recommend the use of a compression garment and may recommend lymphatic massage. Drains may also be placed at the time of surgery and may need to be managed at home. Following the procedure, patients will experience some bruising and swelling, as well as moderate pain which can be managed by pain medication. The pain should dissipate significantly within 4 to 5 days of surgery, while the bruising and swelling may continue for several weeks depending on the extent of the operation. Patients may go back to work within 7-10 days and may resume physical activities (such as exercise) between 6-8 weeks post-operatively.

Body Feminization FAQs

Benefits of Brazilian butt lift?

The buttocks and hips can be augmented and reshaped using fat from the client’s own body. Our San Diego Brazilian butt lift creates a sexier, more youthful rear-end profile. Curves appear completely natural!

Am I a good candidate for body feminization?

It’s important to note that while fat transfer and body sculpting can improve your contours, these treatments are not a substitute for weight loss, a healthy diet and exercise. Body contouring is ideal for those who are close to their goal weight, have good skin elasticity, and do not smoke. Patients should also have reasonable expectations for their outcome.

Cost of body feminization?

The number of areas treated as well as their size will affect the overall cost of fat transfer and body contouring. Costs will include anesthesia, facility fees, compression garments, and surgeon’s fees. Efforts will be made by our office to get insurance coverage.
