WHAT IS FTM BODY CONTOURING?
FTM (female-to-male) body contouring surgery combines top surgery with other effective body contouring procedures to make the patient's overall appearance more masculine. As the female body develops, hormones like estrogen begin to store fat in the hips, legs, and buttocks for an hourglass shape. To transform to a more masculine upper body with a V-shaped torso, FTM body contouring at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Jacksonville, FL typically utilizes liposuction techniques to eradicate fat from the butt, hips, and thighs. High-definition lipo may also be performed to define the abdominal muscles and produce a "six-pack." In some instances, the extracted fat is used to create a smooth line from the chest to the waist. Patients transitioning from female to male should talk to board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin to receive individualized recommendations for their body contouring treatment plan.

HOW IS FTM BODY CONTOURING DONE?
Because each patient will have a unique FTM body contouring plan, our team will talk to you during your initial consultation to go over the best surgical technique for your unique needs. Liposuction incisions will be made as tiny as possible and put in areas that are easily hidden, like natural skin folds. Once liposuction is finished, the fat taken is purified and grafted to the upper torso to make the transition from the chest to the waist smoother. Your FTM body contouring treatment plan will be carried out in our on-site surgical facility with general or local anesthesia.
