For a patient who is transitioning from male to female, feminization surgery is an important part of the process. At Bayshore Plastic Surgery in Tampa, Florida, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Greenwald has been performing cosmetic procedures designed to help feminize a patient’s body for more than 20 years. As an individual plans a gender transition, a constructive and in-depth dialogue with a plastic surgeon like Dr. Greenwald is essential to ensure the best possible outcome.
Dr. Greenwald understands that every patient has a unique and subjective view of beauty. Instead of encouraging a patient to attempt to conform to a certain ideal or general standard of what it means to be female, he listens carefully to a patient’s goals and helps the patient understand what surgery can be realistically expected to accomplish. Drawing on his extensive knowledge and experience, Dr. Greenwald can propose a customized treatment plan that is designed to complement the patient’s natural appearance with enhancement surgery. As he can explain more fully during a private consultation at his office in Tampa, FL, the goals of this type of surgery are to help a patient feel more confident, feminine, and attractive and achieve a result that is both natural- and healthy-looking.
Feminization surgery for a male to female transition may include:
- Breast enhancement
- Buttock augmentation
- A thigh lift
- Body contouring
- Fat transfers
- Facial feminization procedures, such as a brow lift, rhinoplasty, and the placement of fillers and implants to enhance the chin, cheek, or lips
Feminization surgery, which is cosmetic in nature, may or may not be performed in conjunction with male to female gender reassignment surgery, which is irreversible. Gender reassignment procedures include penectomy (removal of the penis), orchiectomy (removal of the testicles), vaginoplasty (creation of a vagina), urethroplasty (transformation of the urethra), and labiaplasty (plastic surgery to create labia majora and minora).
