Do I Need Gender Confirmation Surgery?

If you’ve been living as a transwoman and are ready to take the next, permanent step with plastic surgery, you’re encouraged to meet with our team. For facial feminization procedures, you’ll work directly with Ross A. Clevens, MD, FACS, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon trained at Harvard and Yale. Dr. Clevens has decades of experience helping patients achieve the more feminine look they want, using a variety of techniques that will be directly customized to your needs. 

Similarly, your body contouring procedures will be carried out by a trusted member of our staff who specializes in the treatments that will create your ideal outcome. We’ll work closely with you at every step of your journey, guiding you to the procedures that will help you most effectively meet your goals and keeping you informed and comfortable throughout your recovery process, as well.

Tailoring Your Procedure to Your Goals

Instead of applying the traditional techniques that a plastic surgeon might utilize when working with cisgender individuals, we tailor our procedures to our transgender patients. Dr. Clevens and his breast and body specialists will design a procedural plan around your personal goals, ensuring that you enjoy the results you’ve envisioned. 

Whether you’re looking to feminize your face, body, or both, our specialists ensure the most natural-looking appearance that reflects who you are, restores your wellbeing, and improves your quality of life.

Your Transfeminine Surgery Procedure

Your procedural plan will be tailored to your body and personal goals, and as a result, the duration of the procedure will vary based on the surgeries you’ve selected.

Before the day of your surgery, we’ll talk you through everything you might need to know about the experience, including the duration of your surgery, the aftercare process, and more.

Similarly, our breast and body specialists will hide incisions in the creases underneath your breasts during transfeminine top surgery. If you already have breast tissue, your surgeon may vary the incision technique to account for the presence of tissue or skin, arranging the incision around the breast mound. During your consultation with our plastic surgery team, we’ll discuss your preferences and the procedures that most interest you.

Dr. Clevens and our breast and body specialists perform all surgical procedures alongside an anesthesiologist in a fully accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) that exceeds the most stringent state and national accreditation standards, providing you with the highest level of safety available. For facial plastic surgery procedures, Dr. Clevens is skilled in hiding incisions in the natural folds of your skin to achieve the most natural look possible.

Recovery After Male-to-Female Gender Confirmation Surgery

Your downtime will vary according to the procedures that are performed as part of your specific surgery. Most patients who are having top surgery can return to a desk job after a long weekend, though we recommend taking at least a week off to complete your recovery. During this time, you’ll wear a tight compression garment. If your job requires physical activity, we recommend taking additional time off or requesting light duty for at least six weeks.

We’ll give you very specific recovery directions based on your specific procedures. We’ll be available to you as you rest and recover, and will help you address any concerns that might arise as you get ready to enjoy your final results. Our goal is to ensure that you’re comfortable and supported at every stage of your gender confirmation journey.

What Our Patients Say Hear from one of our many satisfied patients.

“Being transgender, I was very nervous and worried I would be judged and ridiculed but that was not the case at all. I was treated with respect and dignity, and Clevens Face and Body Specialists were kind and explained everything very clearly. They were always open to any and all questions I had and gave me honest expectations. Recovery was another highlight, virtually pain-free and quite easy. I am very happy with the outcome of my breasts, and of course, I would recommend the breast and body specialists at Clevens Face and Body Specialists to anyone”
