Dr. Bermant's Dynamic Technique for Male Chest Sculpture attracts patients from around the world. The operation evolves during the operation to fit the specific problem for each side.

For the transgender patient, a female breast contour just do not say male. No Surgery Body Contouring Garments can help to a degree. But when removed, the underlying problem remains.

Breasts come in many different sizes, shapes. A female contoured breast has skin, gland and fat components as you can see in these drawings of female breast anatomy. As the breast gets bigger, the skin expands and the nipple areola lowers below the pectoral muscle. Low nipples look strange on a male chest.

Weight loss before surgery is typically better than weight loss after. Men put fat on their stomach and breasts. Excessive fat on the body, both male and female will result in breasts. Working on global fat issues before permit the pectoral muscle contour show. Weight loss after surgery can result in loose skin and contour issues again if the skin does not shrink.

Scars Are a Part of This Operation

For his Female to Male Chest Reconstruction, Dr. Bermant prefers using a short scar small incision "keyhole" approach for a smaller breast with good skin elasticity. When excess skin is a major component, his short scar skin reduction chest contouring "double incision" is a good compromise. For others with a significant sagging component but good skin tone, his Internal Lift can raise the nipple through a short scar incision at the areola. Options depend on skin elasticity and many other factors we are glad to help you explore during your consultation.
