Dr. Hunsicker uses various techniques to perform female to male top surgery—keyhole for patients with minimal extra skin and breast tissue, peri-areolar and fishmouth for moderate amounts of extra skin and tissue, or double incision/inverted-T for larger amounts of extra skin and breast tissue. The best option for you will depend on your unique physical condition as well as your personal goals. Incision patterns and methods of breast reduction will vary from patient to patient. Excision of breast tissue, fat, and skin is performed to reduce the size of the breasts. Often, Dr. Hunsicker reconstructs the nipple and/or reduces the areola to create a smaller, more masculine-looking nipple-areolar complex. This is sometimes done as part of the initial breast reduction, and sometimes as a revisionary procedure completed after the initial surgical site has healed.
