MASTECTOMY – FTM TOP SURGERY
This procedure is one of the most requested in our Institute by our transgender community, due to the little experience that exists in the country in this technique and the long waiting lists in the United States of patients yearning to change their breasts for a male pectorals.
With this technique we were able to resect the breasts, leaving a masculine and square aspect to the chest, getting a scar located in the lower fold of the breastplate and a very natural nipple.
This scar at first is red but with time it becomes a thin and not very evident line. Although the nipple loses sensitivity, its shape is very natural because its size is reduced to the size of a male areola and the nipple is reconstructed.
It is a procedure that is performed under general anesthesia in just one hour and recovery with very little pain.
The inability to return to work is usually 5 days, patients who visit us from other countries should stay in Bogota for a week for an adequate recovery and should arrive two days before the procedure for a good preparation.
