I had FTM top surgery with Dr. Blechman a month ago today, and I couldn’t be happier with the results! The entire process of getting an appointment was easy, even with the current circumstances, and I couldn’t have done it without the help of him and his incredible team! He was one of the few plastic surgeons to ask for and give his own pronouns, which really speaks to his understanding of the community he works for. If anyone is looking for an understanding, and highly-skilled surgeon, Blechman and his team is the way to go for Top Surgery! ~ Google

One of the most important milestones for me being transgender was top surgery. From my first consultation I was welcomed with warm arms. The staff is AMAZING! These are a group of individuals that actually care and will from start to finish check on you and make sure you are doing well. It’s not just about getting top surgery, but being treated like an actual human in an healthcare setting. I’ve never felt so comfortable to hand a part of my life away to these individuals. Post surgery was minimal pain and even though covid became a “thing” we were still able to make multiple post op appointment virtually where I was able to comfortably be walked through my own after care. With some great tips from Dr. Blechman, I have minimal scarring and that was my greatest fear. With tear filled eyes, I just want to say THANK YOU!!! I owe you guys the world and would do more work with you guys if needed be. I have referred you guys to other patients at the practice I work. YOU ARE AMAZING!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! ~ Google
Top Surgery is the most commonly performed gender-affirmation/gender-reassignment surgery for transgender and non-binary patients – it is an important step in the transition journey. Top Surgery is a reconstructive surgical procedure tailored to the unique desired surgical outcome for the individual and is designed to provide the necessary changes to the chest and breasts for patients who are interested in transforming their bodies towards the gender with which they identify, that being male, female, or neither.
Female to Male (FTM) / Female to Non-Binary (FTN) Top Surgery: Chest masculinizing Top Surgery removes the feminine characteristics of the breasts and reconstructs the chest towards a more masculinized phenotype (a “flat” chest).
For FTM/N, the surgical goals are to reduce “female” characteristics and make the chest look more flat and chiseled. FTM/N Top Surgery involves a specialized type of breast reduction which typically includes removing a significant portion of breast tissue and excess skin, positioning of symmetric scars, altering the size and location of the nipple and areola, and using liposuction to sculpt and perfect the chest contour. This is performed in a manner to preserve as much sensation as possible, and minimize scarring when possible. There are a variety of surgical approaches to FTM/N Top Surgery (such as Double Incision or Periareolar), and the specific approach for each patient is tailored to their individual anatomy. Aspects of the post-surgical result such as the degree of chest flatness or nipple-areola position can be adjusted to the patient’s desired surgical outcome. We do offer the option of completely removing the nipples and areolae for those patients who feel these anatomic structures are incongruent with their identity.
Male to Female (MTF) / Male to Non-Binary (MTN) Top Surgery: With MTF/N breast augmentation surgery, our board certified Top Surgery specialist plastic surgeons use techniques to create pockets under the breast in which breast implants will be placed to create the size and volume that the patient desires.
There are a variety of surgical approaches to MTF/N Top Surgery (such as incision location, breast implant size & shape, and breast implant position relative to the pectoralis muscle), and the specific approach for each patient will be tailored to their individual anatomy and desired surgical outcome. This is performed in a manner to preserve as much breast sensation as possible and to minimize scarring.

My experience receiving gender-affirming top surgery from Dr Blechman was absolutely wonderful. I could not have asked for a better team pre-, during, and post-op; I always felt very taken care of by the staff.
Because of Covid-19, I did my consultation online and only had to go in for one pre-op appointment before my top surgery. I felt very confident in the team and their ability to walk me through the steps of what was going to happen, whether or not I was in the office with them. There was a very open line of communication and I would always hear from them in a timely manner if I had any questions or concerns. My top surgery results are beautiful, my recovery went smoothly, and I could not be happier with my overall experience. I highly recommend Dr Blechman and his team to anyone who is considering chest surgery. ~ Google
