What Is Transgender Surgery?

Transgender surgery, or gender confirmation surgery, is a procedure that changes your body to a different physical gender. It may include facial, genital and chest surgeries.

If you identify as a different gender other than the one you were assigned at birth, we can create a personalized treatment plan for your transition.

Who Is a Candidate for Transgender Surgery?

You are a good candidate for transgender surgery if you:

  • Have identified as a different gender or non-binary for at least one year
  • Are in good health or your health problems are managed well
  • Have a good support system
  • Receive a letter of recommendation to do the surgery from a mental health professional
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcomes of the surgery
  • Can make an informed decision and consent to surgery

Supporting Your Recovery

We are here to support you throughout each of your surgeries — physically and emotionally. Our compassionate team can help you find support and aftercare services as you make your transition. We will schedule regular checkups with you to follow your progress.
