The term transgender refers to males or females that feel as though their physical gender from birth doesn’t match the one that he or she identifies with in their brain. This segment of the population whose brain and body are at odds when it comes to gender, can suffer from gender dysphoria. “Dysphoria” is a term used to describe the distress related to identifying with a gender different from the one assigned at birth. Not all transgender people suffer from dysphoria; but for those who do, medical intervention can be a great relief.
The sensitive and compassionate staff at The Center for Plastic Surgery at MetroDerm, P.C. performs transgender “top” surgery (above the waist) for men and women who are ready to physically commit to their gender of choice. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Farzad R. Nahai, works closely with transgender patients to help them towards an appearance that makes them more at home with their bodies and their sense of self.
Electing to have transgender surgery is a serious decision that requires careful consideration and planning. Some plastic surgeons recommend coming to the decision with the guidance of mental health professional who specializes in transgender medicine. They also recommend living in the gender role a person identifies with for at least 12 continuous months.
- There are nearly 700,000 transgender individuals in the U.S. or 0.3% of the adult population; however, some experts say the true number is probably greater than that.
- Of those who identify as transgender, 0.5% have taken some steps to transition from one gender to another.
