WELCOME to "TopFTMsurgery.com," where you can learn all about a chest masculinization procedure that not only looks amazing, but is also designed to leave the nipple attached, and therefore maintain sensation. Congratulations on taking the next step on your journey towards "gender affirmation."

Over the past 12-plus years, double-board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Paul M. Steinwald, M.D. of The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Denver (and formerly of Lake Forest Plastic Surgery in Chicagoland) has personally developed one of the safest, most predictable, and aesthetically pleasing "FTM/Top Surgery" chest masculinization methods currently available in the world, made more remarkable by the fact that a degree of nipple sensation is preserved in a great majority of patients. Dr. Steinwald has seen, counseled, and/or performed this transformative surgery for hundreds of transgender patients from across the country and even abroad, and has lectured widely as well. We're confident that all the information you need to prepare and empower you before making a confidential consultation can be found here; once again, welcome!


Paul M. Steinwald, M.D. is one of the few plastic surgeons in Denver who is double-board certified in both plastic and general surgery. MORE
