Transfeminine Top Surgery

Feminizing Chest 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 to the chest.

What is the cost of transfeminine top surgery?

A surgeon's cost for transfeminine top surgery may vary based on his or her experience as well as geographic location. Many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans for transfeminine top surgery, so be sure to ask.

Transfeminine top surgery costs may include:

  • Surgeon's fee
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Medical tests and x-rays

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon for transfeminine top surgery, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.

There is some debate as to whether transfeminine top surgery is considered a reconstructive procedure. In some instances, it can be covered by health insurance. However, your coverage may only provide a small part of the total fee.
