Ancillary Procedures and Services for the Treatment of Gender Dysphoria

May 9, 2014
Purpose of Technology

Some persons with gender dysphoria (GD) may seek hormone therapy and /or sex reassignment surgery (SRS) to resolve their incongruity between biological sex and gender identity. Additional ancillary surgeries or services, such as facial modifications, vocal cord surgery, or voice training, may be desired by transgender persons to further feminize or masculinize the body and/or perception of gender. In some cases, ancillary procedures are performed without SRS.
