Gender Affirmation Surgery

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Our goal for every patient at Rowe Plastic Surgery is to help your outside better match the person who you are inside. There is no better expression of this than gender affirmation surgery, also known as transgender surgery. Our practice specializes in helping patients transition with both female to male (FTM) and male to female (MTF) top surgery procedures. Patients may or may not be on hormones preoperatively – this is not a requirement. In many cases, these procedures can be covered by health insurance, thanks to increasing awareness of the diagnosis and treatment of gender dysphoria.

Female-To-Male (FTM)

FTM gender affirmation surgery involves removing a patient’s breasts and rearranging the chest tissue and nipples into a more masculine appearance. There are a variety of different techniques we use, depending on what a patient’s goals and appearance is before surgery. Some of these techniques include liposuction and free nipple grafting. These procedures are typically performed in either an outpatient setting or an overnight stay in the hospital, depending on the patient’s needs and preferences.

Male-To-Female (MTF)

MTF gender affirmation surgery assists the patient in creating a more feminine chest and breast shape. We use breast implants as well as fat grafting to help accomplish the patient’s vision. Fat grafting can help soften the contours of the implant and give a more natural appearance to the breast. These procedures are typically performed in an outpatient setting.
