As a Female to male transgender, my breasts were inhibiting my ability to live my life fully. Now, I can live a better life. All of the staff was great and did not confront me about my gender. The recovery was great and the care was wonderful. I loved my experience and would do it again in a heartbeat.
Everyone was very friendly and open to hearing about my concerns and expectations. I really could tell why they are leaders in gender conformation surgeries. All of the appointments were informative and helpful. I was completely comfortable before, during, and after the surgery. I had virtually no pain, and I am very pleased with the results. Overall, the best experience I've had in a medical facility. Thank you so much.
