FTM Top Surgery

For many female-to-male (FTM) transgender or nonbinary patients, gender affirmation surgery can bring life-changing results. Sculpting a more masculine chest reduces feelings of dysphoria and helps patients feel more comfortable and confident in their bodies. We are proud to offer FTM top surgery to those from Little Rock, Arkansas, and beyond. As a board-certified plastic surgeon who trained in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dr. Eric Wright has the experience and expertise to create natural-looking results that improve your quality of life.

What does FTM gender affirmation (top surgery) involve?

FTM top surgery involves removing breast tissue and contouring a more masculine chest. This masculinization is achieved by removing breast tissue via a subcutaneous mastectomy, which is essentially a much more extensive form of breast reduction surgery.

The two most common surgical techniques are the periareloar (keyhole) method and the double incision with free nipple grafting approach. The keyhole technique is commonly performed on patients with only a small amount of breast tissue. For removal of larger breasts, the double incision method usually allows for the best post-operative outcome.

The goal of the procedure is more than just a flat chest—it should also create an aesthetically pleasing male contour. Excess skin is removed to build a more sculpted appearance, helping the pectoral muscles look more defined.

Who is a good candidate for FTM top surgery?

FTM top surgery is for those who want a defeminized or masculine chest that better matches their gender identity.

Dr. Wright has the hands of a magician. He knows exactly what he’s doing and has the knowledge to back it up. He makes you feel really comfortable and at ease. The same goes for his entire staff. His bedside manners are like no other and he goes above and beyond to make sure you get the results that you want. Yes, Dr. Wright is a surgeon but he doesn’t look at his patients as a another paycheck like some surgeons. He is a family man and he cares about his patients, the same way he would want his family members or anybody else to be treated, and that’s with respect. Dr. Wright is a man of his word and wants to get it right on the first try! I trusted him and I would again. I highly recommend Dr. Wright and his staff!

This artist… an absolute God send. He is meticulous, and has an eye for what will look best for you. His bed side manner is professional and kind. His office has a warm and inviting atmosphere. It doesn’t feel cold and pretentious like some others in town. He is honest with me as a patient, and his staff is absolutely wonderful. As a breast reconstruction patient, they have been kind, helpful, and always communicate quickly. I will definitely be using him for all my future needs. 10/10 I would recommend every. Single. Time.

Best experience ever..!! The staff is friendly and attentive before and even weeks after surgery. The look and feel of the office space provides an aura of relaxation and high end professionalism, while keeping the price points realistic and competitive. Dr Wright is skilled, professional, attentive, detailed, and more. With each interaction, you are clearly his only focus, not feeling rushed but instead confident that he hears you, answers all your questions thoroughly and documents your needs to make the best surgical plan possible. I highly recommend this practice, especially if you are looking to explant.

I’ll be one month post op this Wednesday March 4th, and I’ve waited to post my review to fully understand my healing journey. I’m not a huge fan of western medicine, especially the attachment to big pharma, and sitting in waiting rooms just to finally see a doctor, who might give you 5 minutes of their time. From my first meeting with Dr Wright at my pre op appointment, he casually sat with me truly listening, explaining the surgery, and giving me great hope for my recovery and healing. I never felt like I needed to hurry and ask my questions because he had more patients to see. Even though he is an incredibly skilled and educated surgeon, his humble nature makes him so engaging and so easy to love! He extracted my 36 year old implants intact (an amazing feat in itself), even though they were incredibly thin, deformed and calcified. The implants however, had ruptured long ago but remained inside the capsules. I am eternally grateful to Dr Wright and to God for giving me more time here to play with my grandkids, travel with my husband, and serve my community! About 2 weeks post op, I called the after hours office number to ask about taking Advil for a fever of 101.5, and Dr Wright called me back! Again, he didn’t make me feel that he was too busy to talk with me, he listened in earnest and reassured me that this is very normal and part of the detox. Now, at one month post surgery, I feel lighter, healthier, and very happy! So,…..anyone who is considering explanting their toxic implants, do not walk, RUN to the office of Dr Eric Wright!! I know that it’s a very important decision, and I researched many doctors in my state to no avail. Not only is Dr Wright the Right 😉 doctor but his whole office staff is amazing! You will feel like every one of them is holding you up. Thank you Dr Wright for giving me back the life I love!

I traveled from Texas to Little Rock to have Dr Wright perform my en bloc surgery, and I am beyond happy with the results! I chose Dr Wright because of his skill, competitive rate, and his desire to research Breast Implant Illness. One of my implants was unknowingly ruptured and Dr Wright was able to remove the implant intact, which is why en bloc is so important, and requires the skill of a micro surgeon. My natural breasts look beautiful and I feel better than I have in years! Dr Wright is top notch, very kind and approachable, and his entire staff is professional and responsive.

Awesome experience. Paige did a wonderful job on making me look 12 years younger with Botox. It looks amazing!!! Very pleased with the results. I also went back to consult with Dr. Eric Wright the next week with some other things I wanted to address. He was awesome. Beautiful bedside manner. He was thorough and explained things very well to me. He didn’t just do something because I wanted it done. He explained why he didn’t think it was a good idea at the time. And his explanation and reasoning made perfect sense. I can tell he is very intelligent. And knowledgeable of what he does. I would definitely go back for anything I may need in the future. I left there feeling like I gained a family. Him and Paige are awesome. If I could leave more stars I would.

It went perfect, he quickly provided pictures, op report, and pathology report. I had NO bruising, no pain at all after the day of surgery, scars are looking fantastic and could not be more pleased. He is an EXCELLENT physician and he and his staff answered every question I have asked before and after surgery. Thank you ALL so much.

He listened to my concerns, showed compassion, answered all of my questions which weren’t many as he was quite thorough is letting me know about the procedure and what I could expect. His respect and “bed-side” manners made me feel comfortable at consult and that’s huge because I’m quite modest!! My breasts are healing beautifully! I made the right choice with Dr Wright!

My experience with the doctor -he's a microsurgeon- and entire staff was top notch: from my facetime consult with the doctor, to the surgery and the caliber of professionals he's included in his team. No question went unanswered and I felt welcomed and well taken care of. My surgery went really smoothly and I was treated with compassion and professionalism. I traveled to Little Rock from Florida and I am very happy with this decision. The office was well located and gorgeously decorated. His prices were very competive and his experience with the type of surgery I was having was well documented. I was given photos of my procedure and they have already booked all my facetime post ops until June next year. I am a happy patient. Lastly, the surgical center he's affiliated with is beautiful and runs like a well oiled machine. If you're considering Dr. Wright and you choose him as your surgeon, you won't be dissatisfied.

I traveled to Dr. Wright from Phoenix, Arizona to have my 20 year old saline implants removed. His prices were the best and his work was highly recommended. He was confident he could perform my surgery properly, via en block, and he was successful. I can’t say enough wonderful things about him and his staff. From the moment you walk into his office you are surrounded by kind, caring people. His secretaries, Susan and Tina, his nurse Heidi and Dr. Wright all work together to make sure you get top notch care. I would do it again in a heartbeat. My results are perfect and my incisions are practically invisible at 3 weeks post op. If you’re looking to remove your implants with someone who is sincere and professional, look no further!
