Gender Reassignment Surgery

The doctors at Prime Plastic Surgery are sensitive and highly experienced in the special needs of transgender patients. The procedures involved with transgender procedures may include breast augmentation, laser hair removal, CO2 laser skin resurfacing, laser tattoo removal and more. Our team would be happy to learn more about your personal goals and desires to help evaluate which options would work best for you.

Note: Prime Plastic Surgery does NOT require psychological evaluations (in most cases). In most cases we perform transgender procedures by informed consent, which means our patients give us permission to treat granted in the knowledge of all possible consequences, risks and benefits.

Breast Augmentation

There are a number of options to consider when planning the breast augmentation component of your transgender surgery including:

  • Saline vs. Silicone Implants
  • Round vs. Teardrop Implant Style
  • Smooth vs. Textured
  • Profile Type (High, Moderate or Low)
  • Location of Incision (Submammary, Infra-Areolar, Axiliary, or Peri)
  • Implant Size
  • …and Other Considerations

The doctors at Prime Plastic Surgery offer a wealth of experience in working directly with the transgender community and listening to each patient’s specific and unique needs and desires to help ensure absolute success in the surgical results.

Recovery

The expectations after surgery depend on what surgery is performed. Normally, after a procedure in which a patient is put under general anesthesia, there is recovery time. Pain and/or nausea may be associated with certain procedures (which you will be given medication for). After certain procedures, there is minimal pain and/or recovery time.
