Does Anybody Here Perform Breast REMOVAL Surgery (FTM)?

Doctor Answers 10

Top Surgery

I appreciate your question.
The 2 major methods are double incision mastectomy with nipple grafting and keyhole.
It depends on the size of your breasts as to which method would be best for you and the ability to maintain nipple sensation

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.

best of luck!

Breast removal surgery

It is best to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in gender confirmation surgery.  There are nuances of female to male breast surgery that differs from a standard mastectomy in females.

FTM Top Surgery


Thanks for the post. Although many plastic surgeons perform breast surgery, not many plastic surgeons perform FTM top surgery routinely. This surgery is not an extreme breast reduction. There are certain attributes of a male chest that make it look masculine. That is the goal of FTM Top surgery, not just to remove the breasts, but to make the chest look more masculine.

Yes, Female to Male Chest Surgery - Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery

Yes, I perform breast removal surgery. In some instances female to male chest surgery can be performed with retention of nipple sensation.  Other instances a free nipple graft needs to be used.  I will be more than happy to assist you to gain an aesthetic identity.

Yes, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Denver does FTM "top surgery"/chest masculinization

FTM "top surgery"/chest masculinization (which does not quite count as a mastectomy, in that 10-20% of breast tissue is left behind) can be done via a technique of leaving the nipple attached (rather than grafting it), so that some sensation is retained.  It is a very safe and highly effective surgery that has been continued to be refined over the years, and has treated trans-men from all over the country (as well as few from overseas).
