Reconstructive surgery for individuals assigned female at birth (AFAB) who are transitioning to male is commonly referred to as female-to-male (FTM) or gender-affirming surgery.

There are several surgical options available for FTM individuals, including:
⦁ Chest reconstruction (Top surgery): This procedure involves the removal of breast tissue and reshaping of the chest to create a more masculine contour. It may include mastectomy, chest contouring, and nipple grafting.
⦁ Genital reconstruction (Bottom surgery): FTM individuals may opt for different procedures to create male genitalia. The most common options include metoidioplasty, which involves releasing and enhancing the clitoris to create a small phallus, or phalloplasty, which involves constructing a phallus using skin grafts or other tissue.
⦁ Hysterectomy and oophorectomy: Some FTM individuals choose to undergo the removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) and ovaries (oophorectomy) as part of their transition process.

It’s important to note that the decision to undergo gender-affirming surgery is deeply personal and should be made in consultation with experienced healthcare professionals who specialize in transgender healthcare. They can provide guidance, assess your individual needs, discuss the risks and benefits of each procedure, and help you understand the potential outcomes and recovery process.
