MASTECTOMY IN BARCELONA
This type of female-to-male transgender surgery can be performed using two main techniques: subcutaneous mastectomy or periareolar mastectomy. Most patients opt for the subcutaneous mastectomy technique, reserving periareolar mastectomy for particular cases. The choice of one technique or the other will be determined by the surgeon, taking into account the individual characteristics of each patient.
The best surgeons, international benchmarks, prepared to perform the most appropriate mastectomy for each patient, with the best aesthetic and functional results.
WHAT DOES MASTECTOMY CONSIST OF?
1 - Removal of breast tissue
The first step performed by the surgeon is the removal of the breast tissue, both the mammary gland and the excess fatty tissue.
2 - Male breast reconstruction
The male breast is then reconstructed using specific techniques, using tissue grafts or male breast implants.
3 - Nipple and areola adjustment
Adjustment of the nipple and areola is performed to achieve a more natural male appearance.
4 - Chest contouring and shaping
The surgeon will refine and contour the male chest to achieve an athletic appearance in accordance with the desired gender identity.
5 - Final aesthetic result
Finally, a final aesthetic result is obtained, where the chest appears masculine, firm and proportionate, providing greater confidence and personal satisfaction.
