FTM (Female to Male) Top surgery
When your gender identity is transmasculine, the female breasts you were born with can be a constant reminder that who you are does not match your outside appearance. The transition to a masculine chest can alleviate this distress and improve feelings of gender dysphoria and social anxiety. It also eliminates the need for long-term chest binding, which is not only uncomfortable, but can be a danger to your well-being. With compassion and understanding, Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery welcomes you to their inclusive practice. As one of the most sought-after surgeons in Texas, Dr. Azouz treats patients from around the world, and offers support and guidance for your FTM top surgery.
What Is FTM Top Surgery?
Female to male top surgery removes the female breasts, allowing you to present the masculine characteristics that align with your gender identity. The masculinized chest will be flat and contoured, with a natural appearance. The former Chief of Plastic Surgery at Medical City Dallas, Dr. Azouz is a fellowship trained and board certified plastic surgeon, and he has decades of plastic and reconstructive surgery experience. His surgical skills and outstanding natural-looking results have earned him the respect of his patients and his peers.
Following a thorough medical history and evaluation of your chest, Dr. Azouz can guide you through your options for surgery, as you are an integral part of the decision-making process. Dr. Azouz understands no two FTM top surgeries are identical, and your goals for surgery will differ from someone else’s. He will take the time to truly listen to your concerns and answer your questions. Your aesthetic desires are accounted for when selecting surgical techniques for the most natural outcome.
Eliminate Binding with FTM Top Surgery in Dallas
If you are currently binding the breasts on a regular basis, considering FTM top surgery may protect your physical health as well as improving your self-image. Long-term binding can damage the small blood vessels of the chest and increase the risk of blood clots. Constant, tight compression on your spine can cause back pain or even damage your nervous system. Tight binding can also place enough pressure on ribs that you risk rib fracture, which comes with additional complications. FTM top surgery is a better and permanent solution, and one that will truly masculinize your appearance.
Prior to your consultation and in the days before surgery, you will likely experience a mix of relief and apprehension. This is a normal reaction to any surgery, and it is amplified when the procedure will result in a life-changing experience. You can ask questions and request reassurance at any point in your journey. FTM top surgery is a positive, life-altering procedure that allows you to live your life much more freely and with great self-confidence.
FTM top surgery is a personal decision, and you deserve a highly-skilled surgeon who understands the importance of the procedure beyond a cosmetic perspective. Contact Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery today to schedule your FTM top surgery consultation.
