This 24 year old F-M transgender patient came to Dr. Tholen for skin-reducing total mastectomies, star-pattern nipple reduction, areola reduction and reconstruction of the nipple areola complexes (NAC) as full-thickness skin grafts for chest masculinization. He underwent a 4-hour general anesthetic outpatient operation and did extremely well. Post-op photos are at 5 months; scars will continue to fade and mature for up to a year.
