Alright. I am a young man trapped in a young woman's body, and I am likely going to start hormone therapy within the next month. Of course, I have the "breast problem". I currently have a 36 A breast size. Once I start hormones, is there any way to tell how much breast fat will transfer to the abdominal region? And how much surgery would be necessary in the future to get the remaining tissue out? The best estimate you can give would be very greatly appreciated.

Female to male top surgery questions
Female to male transgender questions about top surgery.
For examples of each of these types of transgender mastectomies, click on the web reference link below. Seek ABPS-certified plastic surgeons who have performed transgender surgery for many years, as top surgery is not something that is taught as part of "standard" plastic surgical training, and requires experience with this subset of patients.
