Preparing for Female to Male Surgery
The first step to preparing for this surgery is to find a plastic surgeon who will be with you every step of the way. For something as major as transitional surgery, having consistency is key. You want a doctor who will perform all your procedures and create a methodical approach to becoming the real you.
When you sit down for a consultation with Dr. Katzen, we will go over all of the steps it takes to transition from a female to a male successfully. This will include all the necessary surgical procedures as well as any additional aesthetic procedures and therapies we might recommend.
Not every procedure is required, and there are some steps in the process that might not fit with your overall aesthetic goals, which is why we will create a plan that is customized to you. Lastly, our educated and experienced medical staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
Female to Male Surgery
The female to male surgery process isn’t as simple as genitalia surgery and breast removal. There are other aspects of the male anatomy that need to be crafted as well. This could include:
- Moving the nipples to a more male location
- Sculpting the abdomen to a more square design which accents the ab muscles
- Transferring fat from the buttocks to other parts of the body to broaden the shoulders and thicken the face
- And more.
Because of these other factors, additional procedures such as liposuction and a fat transfer may be needed. During your consultation, we will go over all complementary surgical options and determine if they fit within your beauty goals.
After Your Procedure
Your body is going through a very significant and important change. Therefore it’s critical that you keep it healthy and well taken care of every step of the way. Each procedure in your journey requires its own unique way of recovery. Most of the recovery options require plenty of rest and an increased need to take care of the skin.
Dr. Katzen and his team want your recovery to be quick and effective. Before we do any kind of procedure, we go over the best practices for recovery and ensure that you have the pieces in place to come out of every procedure healthy and closer to your goal.
