Transmasculine Top Surgery

Female-to-Male

The goal of transmasculine top surgery is to remove the breast tissue (mastectomy) from both breasts and create a masculine appearance to the chest.

Transmasculine top surgery candidates

Transmasculine top surgery is a highly individualized procedure. You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else's desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.

Transmasculine top surgery is a good option for you if:

  • You have been diagnosed with persistent gender dysphoria
  • You have been under the care of a mental health professional who can provide a letter of recommendation supporting your decision to undergo surgery
  • You have been living as a member of your desired sex
  • You are of the age to make consent
  • You have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
  • If significant medical or mental health concerns exist, they must be reasonably well-controlled
