FTM Top Surgery
Who Would Want FTM Top Surgery?
Chest masculinisation is requested by those who find that feminine breasts do not suit their perception of themselves. If you are transgender, gender fluid, or identify elsewhere in the spectrum of those who are uncomfortable with their breasts, you may want to consider top surgery.
What Will FTM Top Surgery Do For Me?
Top surgery is designed to remove the breasts and create a masculine appearing chest. Whether it is a "double incision", "keyhole" or "periareolar" procedure the aim is the same: to help your body conform to your self-image. No procedure is able to assure that sensation is retained and the main difference in the procedures is the amount of scarring. People who have top surgery often say that they are finally able to get on with their lives, that they now appear the way they should, and that they are more confident in their role in life.
How Easy is Having FTM Top Surgery?
The McLean Clinic’s philosophy is that the achievement of personal goals should not be hampered by artificial barriers. Whether you want breast implants, breast reduction or chest masculinisation, we try to make it easy. You are not required to be taking testosterone, for example. The procedure is performed in the privacy of our Mississauga cosmetic clinic and you are asleep. Our doctors and nurses have cared for hundreds of people who have had this surgery and are totally familiar with your needs. We do not use drains or tubes for the double incision procedure. We follow your progress carefully. If you have nipple graft dressings, they are removed after a minimum of eight days. You may bath or shower, as long as the graft dressings are kept dry. We will supply you with the materials you need for dressings, and show you a simple way to use them.
