Chest Masculinization Surgery

The gender-affirming mastectomy creates masculine chest contours that help establish your male identity and let you feel more comfortable in your body. The surgery involves removing breast tissue and excess skin. Incisions are placed to minimize visible scarring and blend with the contours of your chest. The nipples will be positioned for a more masculine appearance. 

If you desire a more athletic appearance, pectoral implants can be inserted during the surgery, resulting in a more firm and defined masculine chest.

Transgender Body Contouring

Liposuction & Fat Grafting

Liposuction can help sculpt the contours of your body to better reflect your gender identity. Used in conjunction with fat grafting, unwanted fat from one area can be used to augment other parts of your body to help you achieve your goals, whether that happens to be a male or female form.

When combined with other procedures, liposuction is often the finishing touch that accentuates the effect you are looking to achieve.  Liposuction can be used to treat areas including the buttocks, back, flanks, face, chin, and legs. 

If desired, the extracted fat can be purified and injected elsewhere to create the gender-specific form you desire. Fat injections are frequently used to enhance the bust, face, buttocks, hands, and lips.
