Female To Male Chest Reconstruction

Female to male (FTM) chest surgery is a solution for transgender or gender fluid men who wish to achieve a more masculine-looking appearance by reducing or removing their breasts.

Choosing to undergo female to male chest surgery is not as simple as yes or no – it’s an intricate process shaped not only by internal feelings and philosophies but also by ever-changing external circumstances, such as your overall health, your ability to travel for surgery and your current financial status.

Making Your Final Decision

As with any major life decision, it’s normal to be plagued with some doubt and anxiety. At our San Francisco practice, we strive to provide you with in-depth information on FTM surgical techniques, recovery, safety and results so that you can make an informed final decision.

We’ve helped many patients during their transition, and this website has been designed to help you cope with the idea of permanent change and answer important questions such as:

If you still have questions after viewing our site, we would be happy to explain further details over the phone, or set you up with a personal consultation with Dr. Mosser.

Maintaining a Realistic Outlook

Though the point of FTM chest surgery is to enhance your self-esteem and body confidence, it’s important to maintain realistic expectations. There are trade-offs and potential complications with nearly every surgical procedure.

Every patient is unique, so it’s not entirely possible to predict your final chest appearance or if you will experience any changes in sensation after surgery. It’s also important to note that additional procedures may be necessary to give you the final results you desire.

The best way to ensure you are receiving the highest standard of care is to choose a reputable plastic surgeon like Dr. Mosser. Dr. Mosser is a board-certified plastic surgeon with the training and expertise to ensure the safety and success of your FTM chest surgery at his San Francisco practice.
