Chest masculinization surgery involves removing female breast tissue from beneath the skin in order to create a male chest. Nipples and areola are left intact, although usually smaller. With small breasts, little to no skin needs to be removed during surgery. Larger or more drooping breasts may require skin removal or elevating the nipples and areola.
