What is Male to Female Top Surgery?

Male-to-female top surgery, also called transfeminine top surgery, is performed to create a more feminine appearance to the chest. At Charlottesville Plastic Surgery, we bring quality healthcare to trans individuals with care and support. Dr. Willis is dedicated to great patient experiences in a comfortable and safe environment where you can trust the highest level of care from a board-certified plastic surgeon.

MTF Top Surgery can be used to improve the following:

  • Appearance of a feminine chest
  • Overall self-confidence

Who is a Candidate?

Individuals who are of age to make consent, have been diagnosed with persistent gender dysphoria, and are ready to take the next step in their gender transition can often benefit from this procedure. It is important to understand that gender confirmation surgery should be done for yourself. Surgery is a major decision and should not be done to fit another person’s desires. For more information regarding candidacy, contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment

I am over the moon with my results from Dr. Willis after a breast lift and an abdominoplasty. Dr. Willis and his team are so easy to work with. He listened to what I wanted and gave me beautiful results- better than I could have even hoped for. If you’re thinking about getting a procedure done with Dr. Willis my advice would be DO IT!

Nothing but praise for Charlottesville Plastic Surgery. Dr. Willis explained everything he needed to do clearly and his work was top-notch. When needed, he made an immediate referral for me and explained exactly what I would expect from that. Great communication, efficient office.

Dr. Willis and his staff were amazing! Very calm, clean and professional atmosphere. They were inviting and attentive. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I went in for a consultation and had my lip filler procedure in the same day. Quick and painless. The results are perfect. I highly recommend Dr.Willis and taking advantage of the referral program. 10/10!

Dr. Willis did a wonderful job with my surgery. He explained everything very well beforehand so I knew what to expect throughout the process. I would highly recommend Dr. Willis for any plastic surgery procedures. His patient care coordinator Leah is excellent and always available to assist with any questions and concerns.

The Male-to-Female Top Surgery Procedure

Male-to-female top surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia in our accredited surgical center. This is a reconstructive breast surgery that can be performed with breast implants or a FLAP reconstruction that builds a breast mound from the patient’s own skin, fat, and muscle. These tissues are taken from the back and abdomen. No matter which surgical technique you decide upon, Dr. Willis will make sure your results are customized to your individual cosmetic goals so that you can achieve your ideal look.


After your procedure, bandages or gauze may be placed on your surgical site. You may need to wear a support bra to minimize swelling and support your new chest contours. Dr. Willis will provide post-surgical instructions on how to care for your healing incisions, how long to take prescription medications, specific concerns to be aware of, and more. Healing will take several weeks, and as swelling decreases results will become more noticeable.
