About FTM Top Surgery

An FTM (female to male) top surgery, also referred to as male chest contouring, is an ideal procedure for patients wishing to eliminate the appearance of their female breasts and present a more masculine, toned chest area. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery can surgically remove breast tissue and fat from the breasts as well as tighten and reshape the pectoral muscles for a toned, natural look. In some cases, skin excision may be necessary as well if you have larger breasts or less skin elasticity. A pectoral implant may also be desired to give the appearance of fully developed muscles and an appealing shape in the upper body. If you're considering this transformational procedure, then we encourage you to contact our office today to learn more about how we can help you achieve your desired results. 

Surgical Technique

The are many surgical techniques that can be used in FTM top surgery, and our plastic surgeon will typically choose based on the starting size of the chest and your skin elasticity. All techniques preserve the patient’s natural nipple and areola, but the placement is usually changed to fit the new contour. Common subcutaneous mastectomy techniques include:

  • Buttonhole Technique
  • Double Incision
  • Inverted T/T-Anchor
  • Periareolar
  • Keyhole
  • Minimal Scar

Dr. Movagharnia will explain each technique in detail during the consultation and will ensure the best method is chosen to address your needs.

What to expect

FTM top surgery is generally performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. After the surgery, you will be put in a compression vest that you should wear for at least 3 – 4 weeks to minimize bruising and swelling. Our plastic surgeon will go over any specific recovery instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to check your healing. Dr. Movagharnia can also offer information on scar care management to help minimize the appearance of surgical scars.
