WHAT IS FTM TOP SURGERY?
For many transgender men, having their breasts removed is a crucial part of their transition. To help transgender men get the masculine chest they want, board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin will perform chest reconstruction, or male chest contouring. During this procedure, a double mastectomy with liposuction of the chest is often utilized to remove breast and fat tissue. Depending on how large the patient's breasts are to start out with, the nipple-areolar complex may be resized and repositioned. Let our team at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Jacksonville, FL help you achieve the masculine frame you want with FTM top surgery.

HOW IS TOP SURGERY DONE?
There are a number of methods that can be utilized for FTM top surgery. The technique that's most ideal for you will be chosen, depending on the starting size of your chest, as well as your skin elasticity. All approaches used for top surgery aim to maintain your natural nipple and areola, but the placement may be shifted to suit the new contour. Typical subcutaneous mastectomy approaches are:
- Buttonhole technique
- Double incision
- Inverted T/T-anchor
- Minimal scarring technique
