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.

What are the risks of transfeminine top surgery?

The decision to have transfeminine top surgery is extremely personal. You'll have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable. Many individuals view this procedure as a necessary step toward alleviating their gender dysphoria.

Your plastic surgeon and/or staff will explain in detail the risks associated with surgery. You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedures you will undergo and any risks or potential complications.

The possible risks of transfeminine top surgery include, but are not limited to, bleeding, infection, poor healing of incisions, hematoma, loss of nipple sensation, implant leak, capsular contracture, anaplastic large cell lymphoma and anesthesia risks.
