As a transgender male, gender-affirming top surgery is a big step in the direction of achieving a body that aligns with your gender.
What is the procedure like?
Before your surgery is scheduled, Dr. Jacobs will help you take any needed steps in preparation for surgery. It is important to us that you are fully prepared physically and emotionally. When you arrive at our office on the day of your surgery, you and Dr. Jacobs will go over the details of your surgery one last time.
In the operating room, Dr. Calvello (Dr. Jacobs’ anesthesiologist) will administer your twilight sedation, and you will be asleep throughout the operation. FTM top surgery typically takes 90-120 minutes. We will wrap your chest in soft bandages, and within an hour or two, you should be able to go home again, with the assistance of a friend or loved one.
