What is FTM top surgery?
For transgender and nonbinary individuals seeking gender-affirming surgery, Female to Male (FTM) Top Surgery delivers custom chest masculinization. This procedure involves removing breast tissue, reshaping the contours of the chest, and decreasing the size of the nipple. In some cases, additional techniques, such as muscle reconstruction, may be necessary to achieve the best outcome.
What are the benefits of FTM top surgery?
Female to Male (FTM) Top Surgery offers a wide range of benefits for transgender and nonbinary individuals, including:
- Increased self-confidence and improved ability to express one’s gender identity
- A more masculine chest shape and contour
- Reduction of nipple size
- Removal of excess breast tissue that may have caused discomfort or embarrassment
- Improved mental health for those suffering from gender dysphoria
Who is a good candidate for FTM top surgery?
FTM Top Surgery is best suited for transgender and nonbinary individuals who have provided their informed consent after:
- Thoroughly discussing the procedure's risks, benefits, potential complications, and legal and social implications
- Expressing that they understand that we cannot reverse this surgery
- Consulting with Dr. Sajan, who takes the time to review all possible outcomes with each patient before proceeding with Top Surgery
- What is the recovery for FTM top surgery?
After the surgery, a support garment will be needed for up to six weeks, and there may be slight discoloration in the area where the incisions were made that will require several months to heal. Most patients can return home on the same day of surgery. Plan on about two weeks off work, although some people feel well enough to return sooner.
What are the types of FTM top surgery?
Female to Male (FTM) Top Surgery is available in three different types:
The double incision technique
The double incision technique involves making two incisions along the horizontal chest line, removing breast tissue between the two lines, and repositioning the nipples. This procedure gives the most pronounced masculinization of the chest area, with some visible scarring, which will fade with time.
The keyhole technique
The keyhole technique involves one circular incision around each nipple to remove excess breast tissue and contour the chest wall. The resulting scars are typically well-concealed under clothing.
The periareolar technique
The periareolar technique is a less invasive option involving an incision around each nipple without going past the breast tissue level. This can help preserve sensation in the nipples while still achieving masculinized chest with minimal scarring.
