Female To Male Top Surgery 101: Everything You Need To Know
Making the decision to undergo Female to Male (FTM) Top Surgery is not easy, even if you know it’s what you want. Despite huge strides regarding people’s perception and understanding of transgender individuals, the fight to end unjustified stigmas and discrimination is not over. If you’ve made the decision to transition, our team is here to help and we acknowledge your bravery.
At HZ Plastic Surgery Orlando, our staff and board-certified plastic surgeon understand that committing to any elective surgery is a huge decision, particularly so when it comes to gender transition surgery. We recognize the emotional journey and we’re committed to doing our best to help you through it. So, here is everything you need to know about the female to male top surgery in Orlando.
Female-to-male top surgery is a gender reassignment procedure that involves a Subcutaneous Mastectomy, which removes breast tissue. The procedure transforms our patient’s in order to reveal a masculine chest that appropriately represents their gender identity.
Aside from removing the patient’s breasts, the procedure may re-adjust and/or reshape the nipples. Larger breasts typically require nipple readjustment and/or reshaping while smaller breasts may not. The reshaping style can be selected by the patient beforehand to match their ideal results.
Selecting the right female-to-male top surgery incision can help you achieve your ideal shape and feel of your chest post-surgery. These incision types vary according to whether you want to reshape, resize, or reposition the nipples. Other considerations include the post-surgery shape of pecs, amount of scarring, and the amount of nipple sensitivity you wish to retain. These options can be discussed during the initial consultation.
HZ Plastic Surgery in Orlando offers the following incision types:
Double Incision Technique
