FTM Top SurgeryFTM Top Surgery is a gender reassignment procedure for transsexual men that creates a masculine chest. Top Surgery involves breast removal (Subcutaneous Mastectomy) and male chest contouring, and can also include free nipple grafts, or nipple/areola resizing and repositioning.

Top Surgery is the most commonly performed gender reassignment surgery for FTM transsexuals. Top Surgery allows a trans man to live more comfortably, improving psychological and social functioning, and it may be the only surgical step that he takes in his transition.

The different types of Top Surgery include Buttonhole Technique, Double Incision (DI), Inverted-T or T-Anchor, Keyhole and Peri Areolar.
