what is a female to male top surgery (ftm top)?

Female-to-Male top surgery is a gender reassignment surgery that removes breast tissue in order to reveal a masculine chest. Dr. Z will remove the patient's breast and, if needed, re-size or adjust the nipples to match the patient's desired look. If you currently have small breasts, then little to no skin will be removed during your procedure. However, if you have large breasts, then skin removal and nipple adjustment may be necessary. There are numerous incisions that can be used for the female to male top surgery: buttonhole technique, double incision, inverted-T, keyhole, and peri areola. You and Dr. Z will discuss which of these incisions is right for you and your desired outcome. Choose a FTM top surgery in Orlando, FL.
