regarding doctors I talked more to other transmen,there is a doctor here who hates fat people,I didnt go to her.
my guy,did surgery in 2 stages,masectomy first and then reconstruction 6 mths later.

being both fat and lean,my chest looks much better when I'm lean,and have built up my pecks,its harder being nearly 60 now,but these days I like being healthy.

I dont know if I really answered your question,no matter the surgery,doctors always go on about weight.

cheers
Yes you helped, thanks. I came across a doctor that is a fat hater/ shamer so I left. Now I'm looking for one who isn't rude and is actually willing to help and understands.

Going through the hoops to schedule my top surgery now should be scheduling it in the next couple of months. Little nervous as with any surgery but the result is worth it. Kind of getting excited to finally do this

I thought I'd stick my nose in here this morning to give a friendly shout-out to my bros here who are looking into and/or wanting to get chest/top surgery.

There is a good doc out in California (Newport Beach, just south of Los Angeles) who does a GREAT job and does NOT fat shame or refuse to do surgery on overweight trans guys. His name is P. James Voloshin (aka "Dr. V") and his contact info is below. He did my surgery, back in 2009, and several other guys from here have also had their top surgeries with him (The Oopster, Linus, to name a couple). I give him a 5 out of 5 stars for both his skills and his great bedside manner. He understands and respects us fellows and he is both kind and compassionate. His fees are also reasonable, when you compare him with many others. Back in 2009, I remember paying just under $7K out of my own pocket, but that was before insurance started to cover it. He did a great job on me and you can't hardly see the remnants of any scarring on my chest. Everything is symmetrical and looks like a completely normal male chest (complete with lots of hair!!LOL). I'm completely confident about going shirtless in public, when it's appropriate to do so, ie, swimming. You'll have to call him for specifics about what he charges now, but he has his own surgical suite (located in his office) and his own team of surgical nurses and anesthesiology specialists. It's kind of a "one-stop shop", which makes it both economical and convenient.

Here's Dr. V's info:

Dr. P. James Voloshin
360 San Miguel, Suite 406
Newport Beach, California 92660
(949) 759-0995
