FTM Top Surgery in Texas
Dr. Dulin performs a few different types of Top Surgery:
- Double Incision with free nipple grafts
- Double Incision with free nipple grafts plus Liposuction (to reduce likelihood of “dogears” in patients with extra lateral chest tissue.)
- Keyhole Top Surgery or Peri-areolar mastectomy
Drain-free Method: Dr. Dulin and the surgeons at the American Institute for Plastic Surgery developed a surgical technique for Top Surgery that eliminates the need for post-operative surgical drains. For several years now, patients have had great results with this approach and have not had to endure the discomfort that drains often cause.
Other masculinizing surgeries available: Metoidioplasty, Body Contouring.
“Dr. Dulin is very skilled and has my chest looking the way i always imagined. The staff went over and beyond to make sure all needed paperwork was provided to my employer and insurance company. I am very happy in my decision to have had my surgery done by Dulin and his office.”
“I have many Trans* friends who recommended Dr. Dulin, and after my surgery, I can see why. I love the results that I have. I am an average build man, and I love my results. I have had friends with different body types, and he has always done a great job. He recommended liposuction, and I went with it- worth the extra money because now I have the male-sculpted chest that I’ve wanted and saved for.”
Male-to-Female Surgery in Texas
Facial feminization surgery (FFS) is a key surgery for many trans women, and Dr. Dulin has the experience to address facial features with procedures such as a brow lift, cheek and/or chin implants, lip augmentation, and rhinoplasty, among others.
Breast Augmentation is a surgery that Dr. Dulin has a deep understanding of, and he can make experienced recommendations regarding technique, implant size and placement to help you get the curves you desire.
Orchiectomy is a procedure that removes the testicles and the spermatic cord, which reduces androgen production and can result in reduced hormone requirements and/or increased feminization. Dr. Dulin performs the Inguinal Orchiectomy method.
Body Sculpting helps the MTF patient achieve the optimal female shape for their body. Using liposuction, Dr. Dulin can target areas of the mid-section, abdomen, midriff, flanks (love handles), outer thighs and mid-back to give you a curvier look.
“Dr. Dulin makes you feel very comfortable and is extremely patient when answering any questions or concerns.”
“Very professional and welcoming staff. As someone who is trans, I could not be more satisfied with the level of care I received there.”
