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.

"I had a breast reduction done with Dr. Caplin. This was the best experience I could’ve had! All of the staff at this facility are the kindest people! They made sure they discussed the entire procedure through and through and made sure to answer any questions I had no matter how big or small. I am so happy I went here for my procedure and feel like anywhere else wouldn’t have given me the same experience. Now my results … I was a 38I and went all the way down to a B! There was no better feeling than waking up the day of my procedure and looking at my chest!! I was crying the entire day from joy. I am now 1 week post op and they look AMAZINGGGGGGG!!! I couldn’t be happier !! They are an amazing group of people and skilled at their job! 20/10 would recommend!!"- A.W. / Google / Aug 19, 2023
"I had a great experience! I came for a facial and had an appointment with Micah. I got there early and instead of waiting for my scheduled time they saw me right away! They were very thorough in getting to know my skin type and needs. I have very sensitive skin, so thats important to me. Also the atmosphere was very relaxing. The esthetician was friendly and made me feel comfortable. But she didn't talk the whole time, so I was able to relax which I appreciated. I would recommend this place, and especially micah, to anyone looking for a rejuvenating facial! My skin is still glowing from it!"- E.H. / Google / Aug 16, 2023

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.
