The decision to pursue transgender reassignment surgery (TRS) is a major milestone for any transman or transwoman. Most patients will begin their transition journey with hormone therapy and supportive counseling, then complete the process with a suite of individualized surgical procedures that are designed to achieve a physical appearance that corresponds with one’s experienced gender.
For transmen, TRS may include mastectomy or “top surgery”, facial masculinization surgery, body masculinization surgery, and genital confirmation surgery. These surgeries can reduce stereotypically feminine characteristics and attain a masculine contour for the face and body.
For transwomen, typical procedures include facial femininization surgery, breast augmentation, body feminization surgery, and genital confirmation surgery. Combined, these procedures lend a softer, more feminine appearance to the face and figure.
Because each patient is unique, he or she may choose to have either some or all of these procedures performed. It is important to find an experienced surgeon who will work to understand your unique goals and design an individualized treatment plan tailored just for you.
