Transgender Bottom Surgery with Insurance


The presence of a provider on this list is not an endorsement or recommendation of their surgical offerings. Not all surgeons have equal training, experience, or outcomes in transgender surgery.  I highly recommend that anyone considering surgery do as many consultations as possible. More surgery information resources are at the end of this list under "resources."

Please contact me with any additions or updates to this listing.
