Cost Of Surgery

Costs of FTM & FTN Top Surgery Chest Surgeries and ManSculpture® Body Masculinization varies from patient to patient. Please see below.

“Cheaper usually isn’t very good, but very good is never cheap. Bargain prices are a red flag warning that many other doctors have little to no experience and very poor results.”

Board Certified Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, One of the earliest creators of FTM & FTN Top Surgery Chest Surgeries and ManSculpture® Body Masculinization

Surgery Cost

Cost of Surgery For “Self-Pay” Patients

Dr. Garramone’s prices for his surgical fee are reflective of his vast experience and expertise in the area of chest surgery. Simply choosing another surgeon because they have lower costs may end up costing you significantly more in the long term. Most surgeons who charge lower prices are not as experienced, have poorer results, and can mislead patients about their final results. You may need multiple revisions to fix another surgeon’s poor technique, and this can add up financially very quickly. Dr. Garramone is considered the best in the world at FTM Top Surgery, with low revision rates and low complication rates. Our office staff are professional and experts in patient care. Our hospital facilities are considered the best in South Florida, and the clinical staff and Anesthesia department are experts in clinical and anesthesia care. The cost is justified and definitely worth it! Don’t pick another surgeon because they are cheaper. Cheaper usually isn’t very good, but very good is never cheap. Bargain prices are a red flag warning that many other doctors have little to no experience and very poor results.

All  FTM Top Surgery Procedure costs are estimates for information purposes only and are subject to change without prior written notification. The Hospital and Surgery Center may changer their rates at any moment, as they are independant and separate facilities from Dr. Garramone’s office.

All surgeries are performed as an outpatient procedure and do not require an overnight stay in a hospital unless otherwise notified. If you are traveling from out of town, Dr. Garramone requests you stay in our local area for at least one week so he may monitor you during the early postoperative period.

All costs include preoperative consultation fee, postoperative physician care, and a letter written by Dr. Garramone stating you have had irreversible sexual reassignment surgery. Revision surgery is only covered if related to the prior surgery performed by Dr. Garramone with a reasonable amount of time as determined by Dr. Garramone on a case by case basis. If revisions must be performed in a hospital or surgery center, only Dr. Garramone’s fee may be waived. The patient is responsible for all outside operating room, pathology, and anesthesia fees.
