Gender-affirming mastectomy is a type of surgery that removes breast tissue, tightens the skin, and can adjust nipple placement to provide the desired results of a more masculine-looking chest. Mastectomies started as a way for surgeons to remove tumors from the breast tissue.

​Gender-affirming mastectomies involve operating on the muscles and tissue of the chest wall and surrounding areas to create a chest that looks more masculine. On the outside of the body, the breasts and the chest wall include the skin, nipples, areolae, and inframammary fold.

​How Much Does it Cost?

The average cost in the United States is $9,850. In Colombia, the procedure is 30-50% less.
