Why Opt for Transmasculine Surgery?

Love who you see when you look in the mirror.

There are several surgical options to consider when you’re looking to achieve a more masculine look, including:

  • Mastectomy
  • Nipple reconstruction
  • Liposuction
  • Chin implants
  • Cheek implants 
  • Jawline implants or filler
  • Hairline lowering
  • Rhinoplasty and nasal implants

Rather than simply using techniques they use on cisgender patients, our facial plastic surgeon and body specialists completely tailor procedures to meet the needs of our transmen and gender-nonconforming patients. They’ll work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that safely combines some or all of the above treatments to achieve your desired outcome.

Benefits of Transmasculine Surgery

Have a chest and facial features that look male, not less female.

As with any plastic surgery, the best results aren’t achievable in an office or with liposuction only; you need an expert. This is especially true with gender confirmation surgery, because you want a surgeon who tailors techniques to transgender patients. 

Working with the experts at Clevens Face and Body Specialists, you get the expertise of surgeons who can help you restore your wellbeing and quality of life. Trained at Harvard and Yale, Dr. Clevens has decades of experience helping patients achieve the masculine look they want, using a variety of techniques customized to your needs. Dr. Simon recognizes the difference between having a smaller female chest and having a masculine chest, and will work to give you that definition. 

Listen as Dr. Simon explains her approach to female-to-male top surgery.

Transmasculine Surgery Procedure

The highest levels of safety and comfort.

Your procedure will vary based on your treatment plan, but it’s all based on successful advance planning. For facial plastic surgery procedures, Dr. Clevens is skilled in hiding incisions in the natural folds of your skin to achieve the most natural look possible.

For transmasculine top surgery, many surgeons simply perform a female breast reduction, leaving their patients looking like a female with less breast tissue. Instead, Dr. Simon uses a boomerang incision, which follows the curve of the pectoralis muscle. This allows you to confidently wear your shirt off, as eyes will naturally follow that line, which offers a more masculine chest appearance. She also removes all breast tissue by hand, uses liposuction for any remaining fatty tissue, and reshapes the nipple, ensuring you have a flat, masculine chest from every angle.

Transmasculine Surgery Recovery

Downtime varies based on the procedures performed.

Dr. Clevens and Dr. Simon perform all surgical procedures alongside an anesthesiologist in a fully accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) that exceeds the most stringent state and national accreditation standards, providing you the highest level of safety available.

Facial masculinization recovery times vary based on the procedures you choose. Most patients having top surgery can return to a desk job after a long weekend, though we recommend taking at least a week off to enhance recovery. During this time, you’ll wear a tight compression garment. If your job requires physical activity, we recommend taking additional time off or requesting light duty for at least six weeks.

What our Patients Say

Hear from one of our female-to-male top surgery patients.

“I am amazed at the results I got from my surgery. I can’t help but stare at my chest. And I absolutely appreciate the warm environment. Dr. Simon, Barb, and everyone I encountered here have been absolutely incredible. I was sad for the journey to be over. Happy to be healed but bittersweet to not get to continue to work with these incredible people.”
