What Is Transgender Surgery?

Transgender surgery, also known as gender-affirming surgery, encompasses a range of procedures designed to help individuals transition to their true gender identity. For transgender individuals seeking to align their physical appearance with their gender identity, masculinization and feminization surgeries play a crucial role in their journey. Masculinization procedures are tailored to individuals assigned female at birth (AFAB) who desire a more masculine appearance, while feminization procedures cater to those assigned male at birth (AMAB) seeking a more feminine presentation.

Body Feminization

Prominent hips, an hourglass figure, supple breasts, and a round butt are all part of the feminine physique. Allow us to help you embrace your feminine essence by enhancing your curves, softening facial features, and refining body contours with individualized surgical procedures tailored to your goals.

Body Contouring & Fat Transfer

Body contouring and fat transfer procedures refine body shape, adding volume to desired areas to enhance feminine curves. This involves sculpting the body by removing excess fat from areas such as the abdomen and transferring it to desired areas for a more feminine appearance.

Liposuction of the Waist Area

This targeted liposuction procedure focuses on sculpting the waistline for a more defined and contoured appearance by targeting excess fat and enhancing body contours for a more feminine appearance.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove excess fat deposits, helping to refine and reshape specific areas of the body to improve body contours, helping you achieve a more feminine physique.

Tummy Tuck

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck involves removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen to create a smoother, firmer, more feminine profile. 

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation enhances breast size and shape using implants or fat transfer to achieve a more feminine physical appearance that aligns with your gender identity.

Breast Implant Options

Patients have various options for breast implants, including saline, silicone, and cohesive gel implants, allowing patients to choose based on their desired look and feel.

Embodying masculine strength and presence often involves sculpting a broader chest, defined muscles, and a flatter abdomen. Our personalized surgical procedures are tailored to help you achieve a masculine physique that aligns with your true identity.

FTM Top Surgery

FTM top surgery removes breast tissue and contours the chest to create a more masculine chest appearance for individuals assigned female at birth, a key step in gender affirmation.

Body Masculinization

Body masculinization procedures enhance muscle mass and definition, helping create a more masculine physique through procedures such as liposuction, pectoral implants, and body contouring.

Resources for Your Journey

The TG Resource Center at SVIA provides comprehensive support and resources for individuals undergoing gender-affirming surgery, including guidance on surgery expectations, insurance coverage, and the recovery process. Insurance coverage for transgender surgeries varies, with certain procedures requiring specific documentation for approval. Our center's team assists in submitting claims and navigating financing options. 

The center also provides information on top surgery recovery, post-operative accommodations, and resources for further support, including organizations like the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF), and the Human Rights Campaign. SVIA's commitment to patient care extends beyond surgery, aiming to empower individuals to live authentically and confidently.

Breast Implant Considerations

Hormone therapy often enlarges breasts, but some may desire larger sizes. Our team can place implants within existing breast tissue or stretch the skin for implant coverage. We recommend sizes based on chest measurements and frame to ensure a natural look.

Matching Implant Size to Frame

Transgender women may have taller, larger frames, affecting implant appearance. We consider your height and frame to recommend suitable sizes, ensuring your implants complement your physique

Enhancing Your Feminization

Your transgender journey is unique, and surgery choices are personal. Our team offers additional services like laser hair removal or facial feminization to enhance your feminization results and support your gender expression.
