A surgeon’s portfolio of body feminization surgery before and after images can be very helpful to prospective patients, not only for gaining an understanding of what surgery can and cannot accomplish, but also for determining which procedures may be right for them. Individuals in the Tampa, Florida, area who are considering surgery to enhance and feminize their bodies can feel comfortable viewing before and after photos when they consult with Dr. Daniel Greenwald, a board-certified plastic surgeon and founder of Bayshore Plastic Surgery. With more than 20 years of experience in every aspect of gender transition and body feminization surgery, Dr. Greenwald is committed to providing a supportive and caring environment for his patients.
For patients who are transitioning from male to female, hormone treatment is often used to gradually feminize the body’s subcutaneous (under the skin) tissue by redistributing fat and reducing muscle mass, and the results can be further enhanced through plastic surgery. In some instances, bone contouring and other types of surgery can help to feminize the appearance of the underlying skeletal structure, which differs among males and females and cannot be altered with hormone therapy. One example is the traditional male “Adam’s apple,” which can be made to appear less prominent through a procedure known as a tracheal shave.
In sum, surgery can be helpful for body feminization, as is illustrated in Dr. Greenwald’s before and after photo gallery in Tampa, FL, which depicts the results of procedures like:
- Breast enlargement with the placement of implants
- Buttock enhancement
- Body contouring with liposuction or fat transfers
- Calf implants
- Otoplasty (ear surgery)
- Thyroid cartilage reduction
After taking into account a patient’s current anatomy, overall body proportions, and ethnicity, and learning about the patient’s aesthetic preferences, lifestyle, and recovery timeframe, Dr. Greenwald can recommend an individualized surgical plan that is tailored to the patient’s reasonable objectives. With this in mind, his before and after photos can serve as an excellent starting point and discussion tool.
To schedule a consultation with Dr. Greenwald and view his body feminization surgery before and after photos at Bayshore Plastic Surgery in Tampa, FL, call 1-888-840-3199. Prospective patients should be aware that most insurance companies consider body feminization procedures to be cosmetic and elective, and therefore do not cover the associated costs.
