The female-to-male mastectomy primarily uses the liposuction tool, a minimally invasive rod-like device that breaks down fat tissues. The rod is linked to an ultrasound machine which generates high-frequency vibrations along the rod. When the rod is placed above a fat layer, it vigorously shakes the tissues, breaking them down into an extractable liquid.
It is a preferred procedure for a female-to-male gender change transition for achieving ideal chest contours
Depending on the amount of breast fat to be removed, Dr. Sanghvi may suggest one of the following two techniques to perform your mastectomy.
This procedure is more effective for trans men who have significantly large breasts. Here, the surgeon creates incisions in the breast creases and inserts the liposuction tool deep into the breast fat.
The device liquefies all the breast tissues along with the milk ducts, which are sucked out through a negative pressure pump.
The breast now contains excess skin, which is carefully incised sutured to form the chest contours. The nipples are removed and downsized to look more masculine and are placed in a lower position.
The procedure is safe and allows complete transformation of large breasts and nipples.
For trans men who are thin with relatively smaller breasts, making large incisions is not be necessary. Hence, the surgeon instead makes a small keyhole size incision, enough to allow the liposuction tool to pass through.
This tiny incision, typically less than an inch, is smartly made in the natural creases where it would remain hidden. Small breasts usually do not require skin or nipple alterations as they don’t grow significantly in this case.
It is one of the most minimally invasive female-to-male gender change surgeries and is performed on an outpatient basis.
Patients with an excessively large amount of breast tissue or chest wall fat tissue may also need to undergo a lateral chest wall liposuction with their mastectomy. Dr. Sanghvi will briefly discuss if you need such added surgeries during your pre-operative consultation.
