Top surgery is a surgical procedure for transgender men or nonbinary individuals who want to remove breast tissue from the chest (mastectomy). Typically, transgender men and nonbinary people receive this surgery in order to relieve the discomfort they feel in their bodies. This discomfort is due to their gender identity not matching the gender they were assigned at birth. Individuals who experience gender dysphoria due to the breast tissue present on their chest can benefit from this surgery because it helps them feel more comfortable and confident in the appearance of their bodies. The masculinization of the chest can help reduce the gender dysmorphia that transgender men and non-binary people feel, and help them feel as though their body matches their gender identity.
