Male to Female (MtF)
What is it?
Top dysphoria can be a debilitating experience in many patients who identify as a certain gender which does not match their outward appearance. Increasing breast volume and shape is generally done with a breast implant in the subfascial position to limit animation deformity. A surgery that is extremely impactful for the patient.
Am I a candidate?
Dr. Hartmann only accepts insurance based patients who meet criteria according to the WPATH (www.WPATH.org) guidelines. Surgical technique is determined by the anatomical needs of the patient. It is recommended that the patient be on feminizing hormones for at least a year to allow breast development and tissue softening.
Before & Afters
What is recovery like?
Recovery following top surgery (MfF) is approximately 2 weeks without exertional activity. At 6 weeks, you may return to gym activities; this includes lifting weights. All stitches dissolve under the skin. You will have a compression bra to wear 24/7 for the first 2 weeks and then you may wear only during the day for the next 4 weeks. You will have to sleep on your back for 6 weeks as well. Scarring will fade over the first year
