Transgender Cosmetic Surgery
I have a number of transgender patients on whom I have performed cosmetic surgery. Without exception, they have been wonderful patients, and I am glad that I was able to help them in a small way on their journey to achieving transformation. It’s about a lot more than just dressing up.
My transgender patients have had it rough. Imagine all the usual problems that we each have in our daily existence and add to that society’s disdain for the transsexuals among us. Most of my patients have had to go through months of psychotherapy, hormonal therapy and, at some point in their life, ridicule and outright hostility.
When the transgender patient starts on the road to cosmetic surgery, they have already surpassed many of the emotional and psychological uncertainties they may have had about the transformative process. Nevertheless, cosmetic surgeries are divided into three main categories for transgender patients.
