Transfeminine Top Surgery

Male-to-Female

The goal of transfeminine top surgery is to enhance the size and shape of the breasts to create a more feminine appearance to the chest.

Preparing for transfeminine top surgery

In preparing for transfeminine top surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Provide a letter of recommendation from your therapist
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding

Transfeminine top surgery is typically performed in a hospital or ambulatory surgery setting, and will likely use general anesthesia. Some follow-up procedures may be performed on an outpatient basis, and local anesthesia with sedation may be used. These decisions will be based on the requirements of your specific procedure and in consideration of your preferences and your doctor’s best judgment.
