Top Surgery

Everyone deserves to have their physical body reflect their gender identity. Aligning the two brings peace of mind and gives gender diverse youth solid footing for stepping out into the world. We understand that making the life-altering decision to have top surgery isn’t simple. We’re here to answer all of your questions and to guide you through the process from start to finish.

Our skilled plastic surgeons pay meticulous attention to both form and function. In other words, they use advanced techniques to not just transform the chest but also create a natural and pleasing look and feel so that teens can move confidently through life and feel proud of their appearance.

Our approach to top surgery

  • Innovative surgical techniques to maintain sensation and achieve impressive aesthetics. We are proud to be one of the only providers nationwide to preserve breast and nipple sensation during top surgery. With transgender chest surgeries, sensation is often lost, but our skilled surgeons use nerve-sparing techniques to maintain near-normal touch and feel. We also employ techniques to contour the male chest for an aesthetically pleasing transformation.
  • State-of-the-art operating suites. Our new and modern hospital has some of the most technologically advanced surgical suites and pain management techniques in the industry.
  • Comprehensive, coordinated care for optimal, long-lasting results. Because we are a full-service children’s hospital, we are able to provide all-encompassing care from multiple experts to ensure that gender transition is both successful and empowering. We partner with our Pediatric and Adolescent Gender Clinic to care for the whole individual—physical, emotional, social, and psychological.
