Should I Get Top Surgery?
The decision to get top surgery is a very individual one. Benefits of top surgery include:
Less Gender Dysphoria
Breasts or the absence of breasts can contribute to feeling like your body does not match your gender identity. Top surgery can help you feel more comfortable in your body. Many individuals who transition feel like top surgery relieves a significant part of their gender dysphoria.
The appearance of your chest causes many people to make assumptions about your gender identity. Top surgery lets you live more easily and confidently without feeling like your chest is drawing unwanted attention or questions.
If your gender identity and body do not align, finding attractive clothes can become a huge challenge. Top surgery lets you wear the clothes you enjoy and engage in activities you might have avoided before surgery.
Am I a Good Candidate for Top Surgery?
Candidates for top surgery should be healthy adults who are mentally and physically prepared for the changes they will experience. Good candidates have no major health problems and reasonable expectations. Only a consultation can determine whether top surgery is right for you.
