Dr. Charles Garramone was one of the original pioneers of FTM & FTN Top Surgery almost 20 years ago. There were only a few surgeons performing these types of surgeries in the United States, and Dr. Garramone quickly became one of the most sought after surgeons for FTM & FTN Top Surgery. He developed new techniques in chest contouring, nipple reconstruction, anatomical nipple placement, and also the “straighter” chest scar, which have changed the way surgeons perform this procedure up to this date. His contributions, along with the other early surgeons, have served as the foundation of how FTM & FTN Top Surgery should be and will be performed for many generations to come.
Dr. Garramone’s practice exclusively serves the Transgender Community, as he performs surgical procedures for Female to Male Transgender patients exclusively. He performs hundreds of Sexual Reassignment surgeries per year, and is one of the most well known Plastic Surgeons in the World who specifically performs FTM & FTN Top Surgery and the ManSculpture ® Procedure.
To date, Dr. Charles Garramone has performed more FTM & FTN Top Surgeries than any other Plastic Surgeon in the World, and is considered not only the Best Surgeon for FTM & FTN Top Surgery, but also the Authority on FTM & FTN Top Surgery.
Dr. Garramone performs all of his surgeries at Memorial Same Day Surgery Center and the Memorial Hospital System, and is actively on medical staff as a Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon within the Memorial Hospital System.
