A Note about Hormone Therapy

We recognize that, for a variety of reasons, hormone therapy might not be right for everybody. Because of this fact, Dr. Robinson does not require hormones before surgery. However, if you are undergoing medically supervised hormone therapy, it is best to continue it for at least one year before having top surgery. That way, the hormones have been given the chance to make the changes in your body first. We do require a letter of support from your therapist or physician before having your procedure.

Minimal Scar FTM

For FTM top procedures, Dr. Robinson offers minimal scar breast removal and prefers this technique whenever possible. For these patients who have moderate to small breasts, the only incision is around the nipple. (See pictures below)

For those with larger breasts, or excess skin and ptosis (sagging), a longer incision is necessary to remove the extra skin, breast tissue, and leave you with a flat, masculine chest. Also, in many with larger breasts, the nipples will need to be moved and made smaller. This is called a free nipple graft. (See pictures below)


Dr. Robinson also offers ancillary procedures to aide you in your transition. These include facial masculinization surgery, body contouring, and liposuction.
