FEMALE TO MALE SURGERY
OUR FTM SURGERIES
At IM GENDER, we provide a comprehensive range of masculinisation surgeries to help our patients achieve their desired appearance and affirm their gender identity. Our services include phalloplasty, metoidioplasty, mastectomy, hysterectomy, body masculinisation surgery and other gender affirmation surgeries.
- Phalloplasty involves the creation of a functional and sensitive neophallus that enables bipedal urination and erogenous sensitivity. We offer a variety of phalloplasty options to choose from.
- Metoidioplastyis another genital masculinisation surgery that creates a functional micropenis from the clitoris. While it has high erogenous sensitivity, it does not allow for sexual penetration.
- We perform different types of mastectomy procedures, including the periareolar technique, the extended periareolar technique and the free graft technique, to suit our patients’ needs.
- Hysterectomyis also available at IM GENDER, and our surgeons have extensive experience in this procedure.
- Body masculinisation surgeryis another service we provide, which includes liposuction, pectoral augmentation and abdominoplasty.
- Additionally, we offer post-phalloplasty aesthetics, vaginectomy, testicular prostheses and voice surgery.
Our team of skilled surgeons and healthcare professionals are committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients at every stage of their transformation process. We use advanced technology and specialised surgical techniques to ensure that our patients receive the best possible results.
At IM GENDER, we understand that every individual’s journey is unique, and we strive to create a safe and supportive environment where our patients can feel comfortable discussing their needs and concerns.
POSTOPERATIVE CARE FOR FTM SURGERY
After undergoing masculinisation surgery, there are several tips to ensure a successful postoperative care. Firstly, it’s important to manage pain by following prescribed medication instructions and using ice or heat packs if advised. Wound care is also important to prevent infection, so follow your surgeon’s instructions carefully. In addition, resting and avoiding strenuous activity is essential for your body to heal properly, as is eating a healthy diet and staying hydrated. If there are any complications or unusual symptoms, do not hesitate to inform our medical team immediately to receive appropriate care.
RECOVERY AFTER FTM SURGERY
Recovery after FTM surgery can take several weeks to months. Patients may experience pain, swelling and bruising in the surgical areas. They need to rest and limit physical activity to promote healing. Emotionally and psychologically, recovery can be challenging. Patients need a strong support system in place. With proper care and attention, most patients are able to fully recover and enjoy the benefits of their new body and gender identity. At IM GENDER, we have a dedicated team of psychologists to provide support to patients and their families throughout the recovery process.
FAQS ABOUT FTM SURGERY
What is FTM surgery?
FTM surgery refers to gender affirmation surgical procedures that are performed on individuals who were assigned female at birth but identify as male. These surgical procedures are also known as masculinisation or female-to-male (FTM) gender affirmation surgeries. These procedures may include breast removal (mastectomy), penis creation (phalloplasty), facial masculinisation surgery, among others.
Who is FTM surgery indicated for?
This gender confirmation surgery is typically indicated for individuals who were assigned female at birth but identify as male and have a strong desire to physically transition to their desired gender identity. However, FTM surgery is not a one-size-fits-all solution and is not suitable for everyone. It is important for people who are considering FTM surgery to undergo a thorough evaluation by a qualified healthcare provider who specialises in gender affirmation care.
How do I know if FTM surgery is right for me?
Deciding whether FTM surgery is right for you is a personal decision that only you can make. It’s important to speak with a qualified healthcare professional who can provide you with information about the different surgical options available and help you decide what is best for your individual needs and goals. They can also provide you with information about the risks and benefits of the procedure and answer any questions you may have. Ultimately, it’s important to consider your own feelings, desires, and needs when making this decision.
How long does masculinisation surgery take?
The duration of FTM surgery depends on the specific procedures being performed. Some surgeries may take several hours, while others may take longer. Your surgeon will be able to give you a better idea of the expected duration of your surgery based on the specific procedures you are having done.
How long will it take me to recover from female to male surgery?
The recovery time after masculinisation surgery can be different depending on the specific procedures performed and the individual’s overall health and healing abilities. Generally, the recovery period can take several weeks to several months. During this time, it is important to follow the surgeon’s recommendations and avoid strenuous activities.
What kind of aftercare is required following FTM surgery?
Aftercare requirements will vary depending on the specific procedure performed. Your surgeon will provide you with specific instructions for post-operative care and recovery, which may include restrictions on physical activity, wound care, and follow-up appointments. It’s important to follow these instructions closely to ensure proper healing and optimal results.
What are the results in female to male surgery?
The results of FTM surgery can vary depending on the type of surgery and the individual’s unique body type and anatomy. Some common results of female to male surgery include a more masculine chest contour, the ability to stand to urinate (in the case of phalloplasty), and a more masculine appearance overall. It’s important to speak with your surgeon about your goals and expectations for the procedure so that they can help you determine what results you can realistically expect.
What is the cost of FTM surgery?
The cost of masculinisation surgery can vary widely depending on a number of factors, including the specific procedures performed, the surgeon’s experience and location, and the type of healthcare system in which the surgery is being performed.
