How Much Does Top Surgery Cost?

Depending on the Top Surgery procedure and surgeon you choose, the cost for your Top Surgery will vary. Typically, but not always, the Keyhole and Peri-areolar Top Surgery procedures are less expensive than the Double Incision method, by as much as $2000 USD.

In general, the cost of FTM Top Surgery ranges from $3500 - $9000 USD. This may or may not include consultation fees. A down payment is usually required to secure a surgery date. The amount of this down payment varies by surgeon but usually ranges between $500 - $2000, and up to 50% of the total Top Surgery cost.

Hidden Fees: In addition to the surgeon's fee, you will also be paying the Anesthesiologist's fee, and potentially additional facility fees, pathology fees and other medical test fees. Be sure to get clear information about the total cost of Top Surgery from the surgeons you consult with.

You will also incur post-operative costs for items such as a medical compression vest, medications, paper tape, gauze, scar care and more.
