Breast Gland Removal: The First Major Step

While most people are aware of the existence of females who were born male, the desire to have sex reassignment surgery to transform a woman into a man is less common and such procedures are rarely offered. However, at Urban Beauty Thailand, we believe that all women who feel as if they were born in the wrong body deserve the opportunity to put this right by surgical means.

Breast gland removal involves shedding the most visually obvious sign of a woman (the clearest sign is naturally well hidden!), the breasts. Females who wish to be seen as men are desperate to remove all traces of their previous history as a woman and see breast gland removal as an important first step. No longer will you have to:

  • Tape your chest or wear horrible, painful binding
  • Stay indoors because your breasts betray the sex you were born as
  • Remain miserable because you are permanently trapped in the wrong body
  • Dream of what it would be like to live life as the man you know you really are

What Happens During Breast Gland Removal?

The operation generally takes up to two hours and removes all traces of your breast gland. A simple cut may be made horizontally or vertically with all the breast tissue removed. Most importantly, you will also have the sentinel lymph nodes removed. Lymph nodes are another term for glands. Generally, women only have this surgery if they have breast cancer and it has spread to the lymph nodes.

Clearly, you have a different reason and must undergo another procedure. Do not eat or drink for at least 6 hours before the breast gland removal surgery. Our medical team then uses blue dye which is commonly used with a radioactive isotope. This finds the gland which is then cut out in a procedure that only takes 30 minutes. You are stitched up and congratulations, you are one step closer to fulfilling your dream!


You will have a drip kept in your arm to keep you hydrated and there will also be a catheter used to drain urine from your bladder into a bag. The breast area will be bandaged and you will remain in hospital for several days. A follow up appointment will take place where our medical team will assess your progress and condition and all stitches will be removed within 10 days. You may also have a tingling sensation, numbness and soreness as well as scarring which will eventually disappear.

Recovery from breast gland removal is not exceptionally fast but it is quick enough for you to get out there and enjoy Thailand as a man. You may still not quite be 100% of the way there but a significant step has been made. The day you have a breast gland removal is a landmark occasion. It is the day when you finally cast aside any doubt about your sex and fully embrace being a man.
