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 are the steps of transfeminine top surgery?

Transfeminine top surgery includes the following steps:

Step 1 – Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.

Step 2 – Insertion of the breast implant

An implant is placed in the chest to create a defined, more feminine shape to the breast. The type of implant used should be discussed with your surgeon prior to the procedure.
