Trans Surgery & More

When looking for a surgeon, choose someone that you trust and can connect with.  Be careful with your choice, learn as much as you can about them, and be sure to contact your peer group for referrals.  This list is provided for information only to give you a starting point, primarily in the US.  There may be many more that are not on this list and I encourage you to do your research and not make any rush decisions.  Be open minded to going out of the country such as Mexico, Canada and Thailand.  Above all, these are life changing surgeries, so choose carefully and wisely.  And if I may, please approach our surgeons with gratitude, they often stick their necks way out to help us.

Finally and above all, remember that surgery is only an option, and you need not have any at all!  There can be serious downsides to surgery so please research surgeries and surgeons carefully.

NOTE:  If you know of any additions to add, please let me know!

NOTE: Minimum counseling requirements for referrals are set by surgeons, WPATH, and insurance companies.  For American Institute for Plastic Surgery in Plano, for top/bottom surgery, the new requirement is to have 6 months of counseling (1x/month) and to live in desired gender role for as long.   Some insurance companies are now requiring 18-24 months.  Every case is unique.  My belief is that you should only have surgery when you are ready, in good mental health and able to consent.  I ask for a minimum of two sessions so I can get to know you, and more if you aren’t quite ready or have mental health to work through.  I suggest you contact your surgeon and insurance companies for their policies for “gender dysphoria”.

Below are mostly FTM and MTF procedures.  Some doctors also offer nonbinary procedures as well, though they are not specifically listed at the moment.  It’s hard to keep up!  🙂
