Transgender Mastectomy - What To Expect
If you decide to have a transgender mastectomy — commonly referred to as a female to male chest surgery or female to male top surgery — it's important to note that Dr. Lincenberg will work closely with you in order to create a customized surgical plan to address your individual needs.
There are two steps that take place in this surgical procedure:
- The breast tissue is removed. During the mastectomy, the surgeon will remove any and all breast tissue from the chest. Not only does this eliminate the visual aspect of having female breasts, but it also greatly reduces the risk of developing breast cancer in the future. In a sense, this part of the surgery allows the patient to leave a significant portion of their past life behind them. If you have this surgery performed, you will no longer need to go for mammograms in the future.
- The chest is contoured in order to give the appearance of a male chest. The contouring portion of the procedure is customized specifically for you and is done so that you enjoy natural-looking results that complement your existing build and features. This is the part of the surgery that allows you to truly feel like an authentic version of yourself, and Dr. Lincenberg works tirelessly in order to provide his patients with the cosmetic results that they crave from this procedure.
It is important to understand the timeline for this procedure. First, the mastectomy is performed and the breast tissue is removed. Then, the patient will need to recover. As part of the recovery process, the skin will begin to retract. Full retraction takes about a year to complete.
Once the skin is fully retracted, then the second part of the procedure can be performed. During this second surgery, Dr. Lincenberg will remove the excess skin from the area and will complete the contouring. For this portion of the procedure, Dr. Lincenberg actively considers the natural features of each patient and strives to provide every person with the personalized results that they deserve. He recognizes that no two patients are alike, and he wants every person to feel like the best version of themselves when their recovery is complete.
How Much Does Top Surgery Cost?
On average, the price for female to male surgery ranges from $9,000 to $10,500. That said, pricing varies from patient to patient. Most patients have to pay these fees out-of-pocket, as insurance providers generally do not cover cosmetic surgery procedures. However, in the event that your existing breasts are very large and causing health complications — such as chronic back or neck pain — your insurance may cover some of the costs for this mastectomy procedure.
Keep in mind, this procedure is an investment in yourself. There is no better way to feel like the full and complete version of you, especially as you complete the process of transitioning. You deserve to love the skin that you are in and to enjoy the reflection that you see in the mirror. By investing in this procedure, you can take control of who you are and let the world know that you are proud to be you.
