Gender Affirming Mastectomy

Top Surgery is a gender affirming surgery for transgender men and non-binary individuals that creates a masculine chest.

Generally,Mastectomy is mainly performed in female breast cancer.
In this case, the main purpose is to completely remove the cancer and prevent recurrence.
However, in the case of ‘Gynecomastia’ and ‘Gender Affirming Mastectomy’, attention must be paid to the cosmetic aspect, unlike cancer surgery.
In addition, unlike mastectomy in cancer patients, it is important to preserve the nipple, areola and nerve structures as much as possible.
