Transgender surgery (also called sex realignment or gender confirmation surgery) is offered by the renowned surgeons at H/K/B for both male to female (MTF) and female to male (FTM) patients. We are supportive of the transgender community and proud to be able to provide this life-changing surgery in a non-judgmental atmosphere.
Patients who are ready for this surgery have already been living as their new gender for a period of time. Therefore, before you can embark on transgender surgery, you must have been working with physicians on a gradual transition journey of hormone treatments and psychological counseling.
Transgender surgery usually requires two procedures – one surgery takes care of facial features, and the other alters the body. Most patients have the surgeries separately with a few months in between to heal.
We do not perform gender reassignment genital surgery, however. Specialized surgeons must do this portion of the transition in order to ensure urologic and sexual function, as well as proper appearance.
