Transsexual FtMs, what kind of surgeries do you plan on getting/have you gotten?

butts butts
Everyone is different, and having been in the FtM community for quite a while, I've noticed that everyone has a different set of transitional plans to fit their identities, bodies and needs. What do you plan on, or have already done?

For those who have HAD surgeries already, do you have any recommendations/sugges tions for those who want them? Good doctors, dos and don'ts, warnings/precautions, etc.?

I plan on getting a double incision mastectomy- because I am already a B/C cup and they said that double incision gets more natural results on anything larger than an A cup.

I also plan on getting a metoidioplasty done, but as of yet not a full phalloplasty because it would cost more as well as leaving a lot of scar tissue, so I might do that down the line but not as of yet.

I don't think I would go for a full transplant, because I know that I would need to be on immune system suppressants.

That's one thing that scares me about the transplants, and from the sounds of it there's no real way around it.

Ridiculous, but I wish they could take my DNA and grow me a dick in a test tube. Not going to happen in MY lifetime unfortunately, but it's a nice thought.


About top, yeah I plan on getting keyhole because I'm a small A cup, but I've never worn bras (mostly for dysphoric reasons), or needed to. I'm thankful because I don't mind some little scars on the sides, and possibly slightly wonky nipples compares to double incision scars. Though with the right care, I've seen those disappear almost completely, it's amazing.

Until bottom surgery becomes more reliable and produces better results, I plan to stop at top surgery, in particular a reduction to a C cup. I'm a natural J (yes, that big without silicone) and really would need reduced even if I weren't trans.

With a C cup I'll be able to pass easily with a binder as compared to now.

I found a surgeon that has a bottom surgery method with great results. Let me find him again...

I'm hoping to get a peri-areolar mastectomy later. but I can't afford it right now. That and maybe/most likely a hysterectomy later on.

Top is about the only surgery that has predictably enough satisfying results to warrant for me at the moment.

Actually if people would stop advocating against cloning it would be amazingly easy for them to create a mesh and use cells to clone themselves.
They can do it with bone marrow meshes; everyone just thinks cloning is going to lead to something like The Island or some shit happening so they immediately freak out when there are so many more productive and pragmatic applications for the technology x_x

I'm definitely looking at top surgery.
But with bottom, if you get the womb etc. however all that works, taken out... don't you have to go on hormone supplements for estrogen? And doesn't it do a pretty hard number on your body?

I've read and heard multiple things about this to the point where I'm unsure if it's worth all the extra stuff that would have to be done to make up for those organs being gone. I had medication and pills and stacking them up to be taken just to function properly would be the worst |: Eventhough having a womb/ovaries isn't fun either.

I remember reading that Buck Angel had his ovaries removed, but not the uterus. Later after being on testosterone for many years, his cervix completely closed up and his uterus got infected and had to be removed. So that's something to keep in mind. Maybe not enough of a risk to have a separate operation that you wouldn't have had otherwise, but if you're having surgery down there for some other reason, adding on the hysterectomy might be a good idea.

I really only plan on top surgery at this point. It's going to take me several years to save up, anyway, so there's no hurry to wonder about what comes after.

My best guess what that it will be the Double Incision procedure, but although I'm a DD-cup, the tissue is very elastic and there is no sagging - so it will just be something I'll have to consult about.

It doesn't really matter to me what it looks like, just as long as the scar tissue isn't uncomfortable.

Bottom transplant? is that even a thing yet? If that's really available that would be awesome, sign me up. Anyone have more info on it?

Double incision, maybe hysterectomy, maybe "masculinization& amp; quot; sugery. The latter I'm just thinking about it, but I really hope I can have double incision top surgery one of these days, because the dysphoria is a real pain.
If I can't do it for some reasons, I'll probably try doing other things to make my breasts smaller. I've been told changes in my diet could work, though I'm skinny and bony around the chest, I'll probably ask a nutritionologist. Either way, I count my binder as a way to flatten these on the long term, I just hope it doesn't just flatten the bigger guys.
I guess I'm small enough to pass with larger clothes if I cut my hair, but still dysphoria inducing.

You don't have to take estrogen, you just can't stop taking testosterone. Without those organs, you would be unable to regulate hormones on your own.

the only surgery i'm definitely planning on right now is double-incision with dr. garramone. his results aren't for everyone, but i like the way his chests are sculpted so that scars hide under pecs. pushing myself to lose weight and save up for that.
i've considered bottom surgery, but i'm terrified of losing sensation. phalloplasty runs that risk. meta means no penetration. we'll see how far science comes in the next 20 years. i'm mostly dysphoric about my hips, but they are structurally not gonna change. surgery could paralyze me. not gonna bother. the way i see it, i'm only stuck in this body for one lifetime. i want to be comfortable, but i'm not ruining a healthy machine for it.

I have a big enough chest to need the bilateral incision procedure, and I'm planning to ask my gyno for a hysterectomy the next time I go in for my annual

Im looking into getting the double incision procedure when i can afford it, and its something i'll definitely do, but i am unsure on whether or not i'll go through with any type of bottom surgery.

I am hoping to get metoidioplasty this year, which will push back my top surgery for a few months but I couldn't get top surgery till at least January anyway.. I just wanna be able to pee normally standing up and not feel self-conscious about "not noticing" the position of my dick like I will when it's hanging and not attached by the extra skin flap.

I'm hoping to get keyhole surgery and then I'm planning on waiting for medical technology to advance before I get bottom surgery.

I want DI, but I'm not so sure about lower stuff - I'd consider a 'clitoral release' where they pull your dick forward/out further so it's longer, and maybe meta, but that's it.

Double incision, most likely.

Planning on getting the works done to my genitals. I'm broke, though, so saving up might allow 'better' surgeries to surface.

Some cosmetic surgeries to my face, maybe some lipo on my inner thighs.

Thus far, bottom surgery doesn't have the BEST options out there, but perhaps in the future I might opt for it. Top surgery might be in the next year or so. Also, you can't get rid of breast tissue just by working out. The fat will go, but the tissue will stay!

If you're FtM you'd take HRT (testosterone) not estrogen, and no, it only really causes problems if you don't take any hormones since your body isn't producing them naturally anymore.

From what I've read it's been done in China and London experimentally, it's not readily available yet, and probably won't be for another decade because there's so little funding for FtM surgery research.

Have had top surgery last year (peri) and at some point in the next few years I'm pretty keen to get a hysto. Lower surgery wise, I've been increasingly interested in maybe getting meta (centurian method) but its so damn difficult to find out current information/results/op tions! Can't afford it yet either lol

Hoping for keyhole/peri but might have to get the double incision. Depends on if I can lose weight and how that skin reacts to the weight loss.

Also transplant? Does want. Or even better, growing one from familial DNA to lessen the rejection risk. I really hope that a better option for bottom surgery becomes possible or even commonplace in my lifetime.

I'm happy with my body for the most part. I see gender as an attitude more than the result of physical changes. You don't need breasts to be a girl and lack of penis doesn't make you less of a man.

Of course, this doesn't mean I wouldn't possibly consider a transplant once the technology improves. If I got that, I'd make sure to reduce the top along with it. It's very, very much on the back burner, though!

I heard about the one in China and it was done on a cis guy who lost his penis due to some accident. Unfortunately, he apparently hated it and had it removed soon afterwards :S.
