FTM top surgery
The metal plate used in Nuss procedure shouldn't affect your top surgery procedure or results. Be sure that you choose a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes in FTM top surgery and works closely with the transgender community.

FTM top surgery after Nuss procedure.
Most patients that undergo the Nuss procedure will have the metal bar removed several years later. However if your bar is still in place, it will not affect the ability to have male chest confirmation surgery. Since each of these procedures is relatively uncommon, you will want to choose a TOP surgeon that has a reputation for their work, just as you did when seeking the Nuss procedure.
