FEMALE TO MALE TOP SURGERY
Patients with smaller breasts can have the entire surgery performed through a peri-areolar incision. lf only breast tissue is being removed, the scar generally runs from the 9 o’clock to 3 o’clock position. lf some excess skin needs to be addressed, a doughnuttype pattern is used.
In those patients with a large amount of breast tissue and/or ptosis, a double-incision technique is utilized along with nipple-areolar grafting. There is a high success rate with this method of dealing with the nipples, although sensation and erectile function of the nipples is permanently altered.
