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.
