Some nonbinary people want to have breasts. For people who are developing breasts without having to take any hormone therapy, breasts can continue to grow during puberty until about the mid-20s. For people who take [[feminizing hormone therapy]], this causes the exact same kind of breast development as happens naturally for women, just not necessarily at the same age. If either of these processes has finished, and the person still wants to have larger breasts than what they have, then they have a variety of options, non-surgical and surgical. They can temporarily make their breasts look larger by wearing a more supportive [[bra]], a push-up bra, or padded bra. They can wear [[breast prostheses]], also called fake breasts. For people who want to permanently make their breasts larger, then they have the option to get [[breast augmentation]] surgery.

There are several things one has to take into account when looking for breast augmentation surgery options:<ref>https://www.genderconfirmation.com/available-techniques/</ref>

* '''Type of implant:''' there are two types of implants: silicone implants and saline (i.e. saltwater) implants. While silicone feels and looks more natural, it also requires bigger incisions, which means bigger scars.
 +
* '''Shape:''' the shape of the implant can be round or like a teardrop. Round implants are the most popular choice, because they are symmetrical and rotation is not a problem. However, teardrop implants can give a more natural look.
 +
* '''Incision location:''' there are three ways to insert an implant: through a periareolar incision around your areola, an inframammary incision just below your chest muscle or a transaxillary incision through your armpit. With silicone implants, an inframammary incision is normally the best choice, as they are inserted fully inflated. With a saltwater implant there are more possible choices.

Some nonbinary people want to make various kinds of changes to their genitals and reproductive organs. [[Hormone therapy]] can make some kinds of changes. For example, [[masculinizing hormone therapy]] can make a clitoris more like a penis, and [[feminizing hormone therapy]] can make a penis more like a clitoris. Hormone therapy can't make dramatic changes to the size of these organs, can't change where the urethra (pee hole) is located, can't cause or undo the descent of testicles, and can't change a person's ability to get pregnant. Many kinds of surgery to the genitals and reproductive organs is called [[bottom surgery]]. For nonbinary people who want their genitals to be more like those of [[cisgender women]] or [[cisgender men]], there are surgeries for those. For nonbinary people who have more unique goals for their genitals, there are surgeries for those, such as having both a penis and a vagina, or having a vulva without a vagina, or having [[genital nullification|no genitals]]..
