Female To Male Surgery - Gender Reassignment Top Surgery Atlanta
The female-to-male transsexual in Atlanta often desires an aesthetically pleasing male chest as his first and arguably most important surgical procedure to continue the gender transition. This Femail-to-Male (FTM) or gender reassignment surgery (GRS) allows the patient to live more easily in the male gender role and facilitates a real-life experience. Top Surgery includes bilateral mastectomy (removal of the breasts) and male chest contouring and is one of the most frequent female to male surgeries performed. Top Surgery is also sometimes referred to as male chest reconstruction or simply, chest surgery. The female to male breast removal surgery removes almost all of the breast tissue and greatly reduces, almost eliminating, the possibility of developing breast cancer. Mammograms are no longer recommended after he transitions FTM.
The female to male breast surgery is known as a subcutaneous mastectomy and there are several techniques that are used. The patient's breast size and body build determine which technique is ideal for him. On occasion, when breasts are so large as to cause severe and incapacitating back, neck, and shoulder pain, the breast reduction procedure may be a covered service by your insurance policy. We can help you determine if you have these benefits in your plan.
For some doctors performing the female to male surgery, the mastectomy is done in two steps, first, the contents of the breast are removed. The surgeon removes the contents through either a cut inside the areola or around it, and then let the skin retract for about a year. After a year the second surgery removes the excess skin. This technique results in far less scarring, and the nipple-areola doesn't need to be removed and grafted. I have developed my own unique female to male breast augmentation procedure because the existing procedures didn't fully address the needs of my patient. It is called the "Comma Procedure" because the of the shape of the surgical scar resembles a comma. I take each and every individual's needs and unique attributes into consideration when planning out their procedure to make sure their gender transition surgery goes beyond their expectations.
The male-to-female transsexual in Atlanta generally has worn external breast prostheses for several years prior to making a decision to have breast augmentation surgery. She has developed a very accurate image of the size breast that looks best on her body which makes the decision of choosing the proper implant size much easier than for the usual small-breasted woman requesting breast augmentation.
We provide breast augmentation surgery as well for the MTF transition. During your initial consultation, Dr. Lincenberg will review your medical history and answer any questions you may have. You will need to make decisions on breast size (cup size), on the type and shape of implants you will receive, and on the location of your incisions. Dr. Lincenberg will ask you for your personal preferences so he can recommend the right implant size and shape for you. You will also be able to try on breast implant sizers to help you with your decision on breast augmentation surgery.
You may choose either silicone or saline implants. Silicone implants are made from a gel that holds together uniformly while retaining the natural give that resembles breast tissue. Saline implants are filled with a saltwater solution similar to the fluid that makes up most of the human body and has a slightly firmer feel.
