What Goes Into a Transgender Female to Male Surgery in San Antonio?

The following are some of the most popular transgender surgeries for female to male cases:

Transgender Female to Male Double Incision Mastectomy

FTM double incision mastectomy (breast reconstruction/removal) is performed on female-to-male patients who present for reduction/removal of the breasts. The nipple is reduced and replaced in a new position to masculinize the chest.

During the examination, your breast width, height, and nipple position will be measured. Any differences in the breasts from left to right will be evaluated and you will have the opportunity to point out particular characteristics of your anatomy that you would like to improve or change.

Breast Removal

Chest reconstruction is performed in our own private AAAASF Certified Class- C Outpatient Surgical Center. A procedure that only takes between 1 and 2 hours. During surgery, the excess breast tissue and skin is removed. The size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple, is reduced. The nipple is moved to a more appropriate position. The skin is then brought together to reshape the chest to a masculine form.

For this outpatient procedure, we utilize general intravenous anesthesia administered by an elite group of carefully selected, highly qualified, board certified anesthesiologists. The techniques employed are designed to provide a smooth, gentle anesthetic experience, and prevent postoperative nausea and eliminate postoperative pain.

Body Masculinization Through Liposuction

Body masculinization can be achieved by shaping the abdomen, love handles and thighs using liposuction. By lipocontouring these areas, a more masculine appearance can be achieved. Liposuction results in permanent removal of fatty tissue.

Transgender Female to Male Surgery Recovery Process

Rest is recommended after surgery. At home, you will have medications to ease the pain. We also prescribe antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection. Surgical vitamins, arnica, and bromelain are used to reduce the swelling and bruising, and to speed your recovery.

We will see you in the office the day after surgery. By the fourth or fifth day, the discomfort should be significantly reduced. At one week, you will return for suture removal. By this time, you should be feeling well enough to be back to most of your normal activities. You should be back to work within this first week. Because it takes 6 weeks before the wounds reach 50% of their full strength, you will be able to return to vigorous activities only after this healing period.

Long-term postoperative follow-up is provided at no additional charge for all patients, in an effort to ensure an optimal surgical outcome. These free check-ups are for the 1st day, 1st week, 1st month, 3rd month, 6th month, and every year thereafter. More frequent visits are given if necessary.
