Gender Affirmation

Gender AffirmationThe choice to undergo gender affirmation surgery is a life-changing and profound one. The surgeries themselves are also incredibly complex and challenging to perform. That is why patients need to take the time to find a highly skilled and compassionate surgeon who understands that addressing personal concerns and goals is a critical aspect of the entire process.

Dr. Barry J. Cohen is an immensely skilled plastic and reconstructive surgeon dedicated to providing our transgender patients with the personalized care and results they deserve. He has the skill, knowledge, and artistry required to redefine and realign your appearance.

The Procedures We Offer

Redefining different areas of the body to have a more masculine or feminine appearance is all about getting the fine details right so that the results are both beautiful and incredibly natural-looking. Dr. Cohen focuses on upper-body procedures and uses a combination of technical skill and in-depth understanding of male and female aesthetics to deliver transformative results.

Facial Procedures: Creating a more masculine or feminine face is about highlighting and balancing different features to create a single harmonious appearance. This can be done through surgical techniques like rhinoplasty, brow lifts, lip augmentation, and chin augmentation, or using non-surgical methods like dermal fillers. Patient input is incredibly important during these procedures to ensure that the end results suit their aesthetic needs.

Breast Augmentation: The breasts are key part of the female anatomy. Large or small, it is important that the breasts have smooth and natural-looking contours that complement the entire figure. Dr. Cohen will ask about your preferences in size, shape, projection, breast implant placement, and other factors in order to provide results that suit your aesthetic goals. Since incisions are required to accomplish breast augmentation, the incision locations, length, and other factors need to be carefully considered to ensure that any post-surgical marks are concealed.

Transgender Mastectomy: The goal of a transgender mastectomy is to give the chest a flatter and more toned look for an overall more masculine appearance. In some cases, removing the breasts for a flatter appearance provide satisfactory results. In other cases, pectoral implants can be utilized for a broader, fitter, and more athletic appearance. These implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes for personalized results.

Liposuction: Liposuction is a versatile procedure that can be used to redefine the appearance of your figure by targeting specific areas of fat for removal. The goal is to give the body more masculine or feminine contours. Liposuction can be used on areas around the body, from the face down to the legs.

Fat Transfer: The fat harvested during liposuction can be purified and utilized as an injectable substance to add volume to specific areas of the body. It can be used to create fuller lips or a larger and shapelier buttocks. Removing fat from one area and adding it to another can also help to more dramatically adjust your body proportions.

Laser Hair Removal: Stubborn and unwanted body hair can be an incredible pain to have to deal with on a daily basis when trying to maintain your appearance. Laser hair removal makes it easy to get rid of stubborn body hair in areas around the body, including large areas with thick hair like the chest and more delicate areas like the face.
