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.
