What Is Transfeminine (Female Top and Bottom Surgery)?

Transfeminine surgery refers to the surgical options available for trans women seeking “Male to Female” or MTF top or bottom surgery. These surgical options have proven to have dramatic lifestyle benefits, such as improved self-confidence and gender affirmation. Our board-certified surgeon is highly experienced and specializes in transgender surgeries for natural-looking outcomes.

There are a variety of options available for your transfeminine top and/or bottom surgery depending on your personal goals.

Am I a Candidate for Transfeminine Surgery?

Gender affirmation surgery is a monumental step towards embodying one’s true self. This physical transition involves intense psychological consideration and a certain level of emotional maturity, with some mandatory requirements to meet before qualifying for surgery:

  • An in-depth consultation with one of our qualified surgeons
  • A letter or report from a reputable psychiatrist or licensed therapist confirming that you are mentally healthy (of sound mind and judgment)
  • Medical clearance
  • Sign consent

Bottom surgery is more complex than top surgery to perform. While rare, there have been patients who’ve changed their minds, so it’s essential to understand the procedures in question.

That said, we stand by you, support you in your decision, and do everything possible to make your experience meaningful and positive.

To reduce your risk of complications from surgery, we require our patients who smoke to quit at least four weeks before and continue to abstain from using any nicotine products for at least four weeks after surgery.

Call (305) 865-2000 to schedule your consultation at Restore Transgender Transformations in Miami, Florida, to find out if transfeminine surgery is right for you.

What Are the Benefits of Transfeminine Surgery?

Transfeminine surgery is designed to transform masculine body features to better reflect the desired feminine aesthetic, so a woman can:

  • See a body in the mirror that is better aligned with her sense of self
  • Feel more naturally connected to her body
  • Fill out her favorite clothes in a way that makes her feel feminine and sexy
  • Relief from anxiety associated with feeling like she doesn’t belong in her body

What Are My Transfeminine Surgery Options?

Transfeminine surgery typically includes one or both of the following procedures:

Transfeminine or MTF Top Surgery

Transfeminine, or MTF (“Male to Female”), top surgery is a procedure performed to transform a masculine chest with the more naturally rounded silhouette of feminine breasts. This procedure is done via breast augmentation, which uses breast implants to create and enhance the new breast shape.

Transfeminine or MTF Bottom Surgery

Transfeminine bottom surgery, also referred to as “Male to Female” (MTF) bottom surgery, refers to the different surgical methods for the feminization of the masculine genitals and lower body.

What Techniques Are Used for Transfeminine Top Surgery?

Transfeminine top surgery involves breast augmentation techniques to create a feminine bustline with natural-looking breasts and a curvy silhouette.

Your surgeon will explain your various options, which include the following breast implantation options:

Breast Implant Type

Restore Transgender Transformations offers saline and silicone implants made of silicone shells and filled with either saline (sterile saltwater) or silicone gel.

Breast Implant Shape

While both implant types are essentially round, saline maintains its round shape, while silicone settles into a more natural breast contour.

Breast Implant Size

Depending on the amount of natural fatty tissue available on your chest and your chosen breast implant type, achieving a very large breast size will be more challenging than a more natural and subtle breast appearance.

Breast Implant Incision

There are a variety of breast implant incision options, but for MTF top surgery, incisions are typically made along the inframammary fold (the crease under the breast).

Breast Implant Placement

Your breast implants can be placed above or below the pectoral muscles, depending on the type of implant, available tissue, and projection you desire.

Our surgeons use the most advanced MTF top surgery techniques and realistic breast implants to enhance your upper body according to your body type and desired cosmetic goals. These options and more will all be reviewed during your consultation.

What Techniques Are Used for Transfeminine Bottom Surgery?

Transfeminine or MTF bottom surgery is the surgical method of feminizing the lower body and masculine genitalia while maintaining function and sensation.

The most common technique is described below and can be modified if necessary:


This surgical technique involves the removal of the penis and the formation of a vagina that is lined with grafted penile skin (penile inversion). A neurovascular flap autograft taken from the glans is then used to create a sensitive clitoris.

What Is the Recovery From Transfeminine Surgery Like?

You should arrange for at least one week of rest and six weeks of limited activity after MTF top surgery. Most swelling and tenderness should subside in about two weeks, but some swelling will persist for up to two months. Avoid vigorous activity for at least one month.

Bottom surgery requires additional time, and most patients don’t resume normal activities for at least six weeks after surgery. It may take up to four months for all swelling to disappear.

Following your surgeon’s instructions is crucial for preventing dangerous complications, having the most comfortable recovery experience, and ensuring the best possible results.
