Female to Male Breast Surgery

What is female-to-male breast surgery?

Female-to-male breast surgery, or top surgery for transgender men, is a surgical procedure that removes breast tissue. The type of breast surgery you require is based on how much breast tissue you have. Treatment can give you a boost of confidence.

Is female-to-male breast surgery right for me?

To determine if female-to-male breast surgery is the right procedure for you, Dr. Kerendian reviews your medical history, examines your breasts, and discusses your desired outcome. If you’re transitioning from female to male, breast surgery is one of the first procedures you might opt to undergo.

However, you might not be a good candidate for the procedure if you have an unmanaged mental health disorder, complex physical health issue, or a condition that limits your ability to properly consent to the procedure.

How should I prepare for female-to-male breast surgery?

To prepare for the procedure, follow all of Dr. Kerendian’s pre-surgery instructions. Don’t smoke, avoid taking certain medications, and arrange for somebody to drive you home after the procedure. The morning of surgery, don’t eat or drink anything.

What should I expect during female-to-male breast surgery?

The Desired Beauty team gives you general anesthesia, so you stay asleep and don’t feel any pain during the procedure. Dr. Kerendian makes an incision in each breast, removes breast tissue, and contours and reshapes remaining tissues. He also repositions your nipples and areolas.

Dr. Kerendian minimizes scarring during each breast procedure. If you have large breasts, he might remove your areolas and nipples, reconstruct them, and graft them back onto your chest. Additional surgeries help correct scarring or improve chest contours.

What happens during my recovery?

After female-to-male breast surgery, have someone drive you home and stay with you for at least one night. Wear a compression wrap on your chest for a few weeks. You may have temporary drains in your chest that drain excess fluid. 

Sleep with your upper body elevated for at least a week after surgery. Avoid strenuous lifting until Dr. Kerendian gives you the OK, and attend all follow-up appointments.

Don’t let having breasts prevent you from feeling like a man. Schedule a female-to-male breast surgery consultation by phone or online with Desired Beauty today.
