Gender Affirmation

Overview

There are many options, both surgical and nonsurgical, to consider throughout the gender affirmation process. Surgical options available for adults include top and bottom surgeries and facial masculinization and feminization. Nonsurgical gender affirmation procedures, available for adults, teens, and in some cases children, include hormone treatment, laser hair removal and speech therapy.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach for the gender affirmation process. Research surgical and nonsurgical options and talk to experts to create an individualized plan.
