Nonbinary Gender Affirming Surgery

Non-binary, and gender non-conforming individuals may have different surgical goals from the traditional male and female archetypes. Any of the above procedures can be customized and combined to help you create the body which best affirms your gender. The following are among the highly personalized procedures offered by our surgeons:

  • Top Surgery: to create a chest with appearance customized exactly to your preferences (chest contour, incision types, nipple position, areola size, and presence or absence of areolas can all be chosen)
  • Orchiectomy: The removal of the testes through an incision in the scrotum, which eliminates testosterone and the need for androgen blockers.
  • Scrotectomy: The removal of scrotal tissue; can be performed at the same time as an orchiectomy. This procedure is not compatible with vaginoplasty, which utilizes the scrotal skin.
  • Nullification: The removal of genital structures with preservation of the urethra to allow for voiding of urine.
  • Penectomy: Sometimes performed for gender non-conforming clients who simply wish to no longer have a penis,but may not necessarily seek further genital feminization.
  • Vulvoplasty/Minimal Depth Vaginoplasty: The construction of a shallow vaginal canal but normal appearing external genitalia. This may be done for patients who do not wish to have penetrative intercourse, or for patient with co-morbidities who wish to minimize surgical risks.
  • Phallus-Preserving Vaginoplasty: This procedure creates a fully functional vagina without surgically removing the penis.
