What Is Transfeminine Top Surgery?
The goal of transfeminine top surgery is to enhance the size and shape of the breasts to create a more feminine appearance to the chest. Top surgery is performed as a single stage procedure. There are many techniques used to perform top surgery, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which technique is best:
- Desired amount of breast enlargement
- Placement of the incisions
- Type of implant used
The best candidates for transfeminine top surgery are people with a persistent gender dysphoria diagnosis. Ideal candidates are of legal age and have already transitioned socially. If patients have any health issues, these must be well-controlled in order to be a suitable candidate for this procedure.
