Inclusion is Important

What is Gender-Affirming Top Surgery?

Gender-Affirming Top Surgery is a procedure in which the breast tissue is manipulated to better represent an individual’s identified gender. These procedures are most commonly done on people who identify as transgender or non-binary. For transmen looking to have their breasts removed, Dr. Santosa offers gender mastectomies, where the breast tissue is removed to create a more masculine appearance. For trans women who want to receive breasts, Dr. Santosa also offers gender augmentation, where the patient receives whole-breast implants for a more womanly figure.

Gender Affirming Top Surgery Preparation

Four weeks prior to the procedure, our Atlanta Gender-Affirming Top Surgery patients will be advised to avoid smoking, drinking, anti-inflammatory drugs or herbs, and eating an unhealthy diet. If applicable, you should shave your chest the day before your procedure. Dr. Santosa will administer a general anesthetic that puts you into light sedation before numbing the areas where incisions will be made. Once numb and asleep, Dr. Santosa will begin making incisions for your Gender Mastectomy or Augmentation. During a Gender Mastectomy, the breast tissue will be removed and manipulated until it lays almost completely flat across the chest. During a Gender Augmentation, Dr. Santosa will use the incisions to slip a breast implant under the skin, creating a more womanly appearance. Once your desired complexion is achieved, Dr. Santosa will close your incisions, clean you up, and wake you.

Health Comes First

Gender-Affirming Top Surgery Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

The first twenty-four hours after your procedure should be spent resting with the top half of your body elevated. After the first day, you will be advised to walk around and get used to moving again with your new changes. This promotes healthy blood flow in the body for faster healing. Avoid smoking, drinking, caffeine, strenuous activity, and picking up anything over five pounds for at least three weeks after your procedure. Bruises and swelling will subside within two to three weeks. You will see full results after about six weeks. Results of Gender-Affirming Top Surgery are permanent.
