She removed her nipples? or do they attach them in a different surgery?

It always makes me sad to see girls with mastectomies that obviously have an eating disorder or self harm scars.

I learned from a TIF friend that she opted not to have nipples because the surgeon would’ve charged a few extra thousand dollars to reattach them. It was considered cosmetic and not covered by insurance.

But... It is already cosmetic if you do it for any reason but cancer 🤔

The financial-medical framework in this is medical abuse.

It’s also baffling to me how trans people don’t see that the mammoth medical research machine that’s “affirming” them is just seeing the graph of revenue correlated with trans “care” go up and up.

Maybe she should have cried "DYSPHORIA" and threatened suicide if she didn't get to keep her nipples

American health care is so fucked

It seems to be more and more common for girls to also have their nipples removed.

Having your nipples put back on as part of "top surgery" will cost you extra. That's how fucked-up all this is.

Some TIF's have them removed and opt for tattooing or just leaving nothing there. When the nipples are reattached, the surgeon takes one on the original nipples and splits it in half and reattaches them, they are much smaller. And have usually zero sensation.

I did not know that. Always thought I just threw up in my mouth was a metaphor until just now.

I haven't had a mastectomy, but I've had a breast reduction with removing my nipples to he sized down accordingly; it was done in the same surgery.

Maybe they're opting to have cosmetic tattooing to recreate more male nipples?
