Transgender / Gender-Affirming Top Surgery Options

Male-to-female (MTF) or Female-to-Male (FTM) surgical procedures can take between two and four hours and will vary depending on the type of surgery required.

Like all surgeries performed at Panacea, transgender MTF and FTM surgery is tailored to each individual's distinct needs and goals, allowing them to feel more comfortable in their own skin.

Female-to-Male Transgender Top Surgery (FTM Surgery)

Female-to-male transgender top surgery is also known as a mastectomy, or chest masculinization. Breast tissue is removed from the chest and it is contoured to give patients a more masculine appearance.

The female to male (FTM) reconstructive top surgery is intended for transgender males seeking to remove their breasts and create a more masculine chest. This surgery, known clinically as bilateral mastectomy, can be performed using either the keyhole or double incision technique, depending on the amount of breast tissue the patient has. Both techniques have the same objective of producing a more masculine and defined chest by removing breast tissue, excess skin, and resizing, reshaping, and repositioning the nipple or areola. During the consultation, Dr. Arslanian will determine which technique is most suitable for the patient's body.

The main goal of this surgery is to help patients align their external appearance with their internal identity.

The keyhole technique is used for patients with a smaller amount of breast tissue, typically A or B cup size. This technique involves making a small incision near the areola, partially attaching it to maintain sensation and blood supply, removing the fat and excess tissue through liposuction, and closing the incisions. Due to the minimal amount of tissue in the breast area, this technique is generally quicker and less painful.

The double incision technique is designed for patients with moderate to large amounts of breast tissue. This more extensive procedure involves making incisions below the nipple on both sides of the chest and pulling down the skin to remove the mammary glands and excess tissue. Minimal liposuction may be required if the fatty tissue is difficult to remove. After the tissue removal, the excess skin is also removed, and the incisions are closed. This technique typically results in more scarring as it covers a larger area of breast tissue.

Male-to-Female Transgender Top Surgery (MTF Surgery)

Male-to-female (MTF) transgender top surgery is also known as breast augmentation or chest feminization. Breast implants are added to the existing breast tissue for a more typically feminine appearance.

There are different techniques for transgender top surgery based on gender identity. Male to female (MTF) top surgery involves breast augmentation with either saline or silicone implants to enhance breast size and shape. Dr. Abboushi and Dr. Singh assist patients in choosing the type of implant that best suits their needs. The implant is placed in a pocket created in the chest. Patients also have to decide whether to place the implant on top or underneath the breast muscles, with both options having advantages. The doctors  most often use a technique called "dual plane" breast implant placement, and they will explain the details of each placement option during the consultation to help MTF patients make an informed decision. Our doctors have developed surgical techniques to help all patients achieve their desired appearance.
