About Transgender Top Surgery

Each procedure has to be approached differently but with equal sensitivity.

FTM (female to male) top surgical procedure

In this procedure breasts are removed to create a flat manly chest and small nipples .
Depending on breast size and gland consistency it can be any one of the following

Double incision top surgery:

The surgeon will make an incision along the lower breast fold and remove the breast tissue. The excess skin is then reduced to create masculine contouring. Next, the nipple and areola that was removed at the beginning of the procedure are resized and stitched back in the appropriate position to complete the masculine look to the chest. Liposuction of the axilla, lateral breast and chest may be performed if necessary. This procedure allows the best male chest contouring. The final incisions along the lower border of the chest and the areola fade with time. Performed under general anaesthesia, this surgery typically takes between 2.5 to 3.5 hrs.
Beneficial for: medium to large breasts.

Periareolar surgery:

The surgeon starts with an incision around the entire areola and breast to take out excess fatty tissue. A concentric incision is then made to remove the intervening skin. Purse-string style stitches are used to tighten the skin around the new areola. The final incision is at the areola itself; this may need to be done in two stages to retain adequate blood supply to the nipple and areola. An outpatient/ day procedure under general anaesthesia, it can take between 3-4 hours.
Beneficial for: small to medium breasts

Keyhole top surgery:

An incision is made along the lower border of the areola to take out the breast tissue. This may be accompanied by liposuction if necessary. The areola is not reduced in size, but the nipple may need to be reduced to make it more manly. This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and takes between 2-3 hrs.

Is hormone treatment mandatory before Top Surgery?
Hormone medical treatment is often started before surgery in MTF top surgery and it improves the result, but it’s not mandatory
Will there be visible scars after the surgery? How do I minimise them?
At Ambrosia, we try our best to minimise scars. Do remember to discuss this and how best to improve them during the pre-procedural consultation.

For the Double Incision and Periareolar Top surgeries, it is usually advisable to have scar treatment for the first 3 months. During this time, the scars are typically most inflamed. You will also need to avoid excessive arm and chest movements in the first 6 weeks.

How painful is the top surgery?
Pain is a very subjective thing and differs from person to person; however that being said the pain for this surgery is minimal to moderate. You will be prescribed painkillers by your surgeon to deal with this.
When can I shower or bathe after this surgery?
Ideally you are allowed to shower after 48 hours but you cannot get your chest wet because of the dressings. Once these dressings come off on day 6, you can bathe with your chest wet.
Can breasts grow back after FTM top surgery?
Rest assured, FTM top surgery is permanent.
Will there be loss of nipple sensation after FTM top surgery?
There may be loss of sensation in the nipples after FTM top surgery. Make sure you discuss these side effects with your surgeon during your pre-procedure consultation.
How long do I have to sleep on my back after top surgery?
Since your treatment area is the chest, it will need to be allowed an initial period of 2 weeks for recovery; after which you may resume sleeping on your side. Either way, do not lift any heavy objects or do any intensive exercise without the explicit approval from your surgeon.
How long does the compression vest need to stay on?
The compression vest or binder is necessary to be worn for the first 3 weeks following the surgery to help the treatment area heal. This may be removed by the surgeon after that or reapplied if deemed necessary.
Is the transgendertop surgery safe?
Just as with all surgeries, this surgery also carries some risks. This is why the initial health evaluation is a necessity before undergoing the surgery. At Ambrosia clinic in Hyderabad, we follow the best practices with your safety and health in mind.
