FTM Gender Reassignment Surgery Articles
FTM Top Surgery
Top Surgery includes bilateral mastectomy (removal of the breasts) and male chest contouring, and is one of the most frequent FTM Surgeries performed. Top Surgery is also sometimes referred to as male chest reconstruction or simply, chest surgery.
Hysterectomy is a gender reassignment procedure for transsexual men that removes the uterus, and may also include the removal of the cervix as well as the ovaries and Fallopian Tubes (bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.)
Metoidioplasty, also known as meto or meta, and sometimes spelled "metaoidioplasty", is a FTM Surgery that releases the testosterone-enlarged clitoral tissue from its position and moves it forward to more closely approximate the position of a penis.
Phalloplasty is a surgery that constructs a penis using a tissue graft. Like Metoidioplasty, Phalloplasty may or may not also include: Vaginectomy, Urethroplasty and Scrotoplasty. Glansplasty and implantation of an erectile device are also optional.
