Actor Elliot Page showed off his chest and top surgery scars for the first time in an Instagram post on Monday.

"Trans bb's first swim trunks #transjoy #transisbeautiful," he wrote in the caption of the picture.

Page first opened up about getting top surgery in his first interview since coming out at trans to Oprah Winfrey in April.

"This is incredibly new. I feel like I haven't gotten to be myself since I was 10 years old," Page told Winfrey about how he felt after getting the procedure.

Top surgery is a common procedure used to treat gender dysphoria in transmasculine people. The procedure, also known as a double mastectomy, masculinizes the chest by removing the breast tissue entirely and contouring it.

The most common form of top surgery is called a double incision and, as the name suggests, leaves two horizontal scars under the pecs like in Page's picture.
