About Transgender Top Surgery
Transgender top surgery is a form of reconstructive surgery performed on the chest for those who desire to establish a more masculine or feminine contour. Two procedures that encapsulate this surgery are:
- Male-to-female top surgery implements either a silicone or saline breast implant to enhance chest contours as well as establish a more feminine figure
- Female-to-male surgery involves extracting breast tissue and sculpting the chest to create a leveled canvas
What can I expect in terms of recovery?
Ultimately, recovery period will depend on which procedure you are receiving. Patients who undergo female-to-male surgery typically resume working and some of their activities after about 2 weeks, while male-to-female surgery can take around 1 week. Dr. Sands and his team will provide everyone aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible recovery.
Am I an ideal candidate for transgender top surgery?
Anyone considering transgender top surgery should:
- Not be a smoker
- Be in good physical and mental health
- Have realistic expectations in mind for their determined procedure
