Masculinizing Chest Surgery

The goal of transmasculine top surgery, or masculinizing chest surgery, is to remove the breast tissue from both breasts and create a masculine or nonbinary appearance to the chest.

What is the cost of transmasculine top surgery?

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

Transmasculine 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 transmasculine 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.

Transmasculine top surgery is considered a reconstructive procedure and can be covered by health insurance. However, your coverage may only provide a small part of the total fee.
