Transmasculine Top Surgery

The goal of transmasculine top surgery, or masculinizing chest surgery, is to remove the breast tissue and surplus skin from both breasts and create a masculine or nonbinary appearance to the chest.  There are three main surgical options for chest masculinizing top surgery which your surgeon will discuss with you.  You will work with your surgeon to determine the best option for you. This will be based on your body and your desires.

 

Transfeminine Top Surgery

The goal of transfeminine top surgery, or feminizing chest surgery, is to enhance the size and shape of the breasts to create a more feminine appearance of the chest.  This is achieved by placing implants under your natural breast tissue and muscle.  Your surgeon will discuss with you the implant type (silicone or saline) as well as the size and shape to match your body and your desires.
