Cis, Gender Fluid and Non-binary Top Surgery
I see many patients, and a recent patient encounter made me realize that it’s important to emphasize that like gender is fluid, so is surgery! In particular, top surgery, a life-changing procedure that has found popularity among patients seeking to align their body with their gender identity.
Each Person’s Journey to Chest Masculinization Is Unique
While many associate top surgery with trans men, it’s essential to know that it’s not limited to one group. In fact, top surgery can be a life-altering option for people who identify as non-binary, gender fluid, or cisgender as well. No matter your gender identity, top surgery can offer a path toward feeling more comfortable and confident in your skin.
My masculinization surgery is an inclusive procedure that can benefit a range of individuals, regardless of their gender identity. With continued advancements in medical technology and increased awareness and education around gender diversity, more people than ever before have access to procedures that can help them feel more comfortable and authentic in their bodies. Below you will see my before and after results for some of my FTM, non-binary top surgery, chest dysphoria and masculinization surgery.
Choose Your Chest Masculinization Surgeon Wisely
As with any surgery, there are risks and benefits to consider before opting for top surgery. The main advantages are the physical and emotional improvements that can result from a more aligned body image. Other benefits include increased self-esteem, better clothing options, and improved intimacy with a partner. However, the risks of complications such as infection, bleeding, asymmetry, or loss of nipple sensation should not be overlooked. That is why it is vital to choose a skilled and experienced surgeon who can guide you through the entire process, from pre-operative assessment to aftercare and follow-up appointments.
