Educational Overview:
Gender Affirmation Surgery entails a variety of surgical options for individuals suffering from gender dysphoria. The goal of surgery is to help the individual achieve lasting comfort with their gendered self and allow the individual’s body to be congruous with who they know themselves to be. The plastic surgery options for trans men (FTM) and trans women (MTF) include reshaping of the face and chest/breast, body contouring, and genital surgery.

Familiarity with the hormonal and psychological treatments, as well as an understanding of the multidisciplinary nature of care is important in the overall management of individuals with gender dysphoria. Additionally, a knowledge of the available surgical options provides plastic surgeons with a foundation as to the surgical management for gender non-conforming individuals.

Learning Objectives:
After attending the PSEN University course, the participant should be able to:

1. Understand the multidisciplinary nature of care, including the psychological evaluation and hormonal management of gender non-conforming individuals, including adolescents.

3. Understand the historical context of gender confirmation surgery as well as the embryology and anatomy involved in gender surgery.
4. Understand the hormonal and psychological management of gender non-conforming individuals.
5. Understand the concepts of facial feminization and masculinization.
6. Understand the concepts of genital surgery for transwomen and transmen.
7. Understand common plastic surgery procedures (breast augmentation, chest contouring and body contouring) as they relate to the gender non-conforming individuals.
8. Understand the health policy and patient safety risks that are unique to these procedures and this patient population.
