What is the process for Gender Affirming Surgery?

Starting your surgical transition journey can be exciting but also stressful. There will be ups and downs throughout the process and the most important aspect is making sure you have a strong support system of people you love and trust. Through the hormonal changes and multiple surgical procedures endured, having a circle of loved ones to be by your side through it all cannot be overstated.

Your surgeon should follow the World Professional Associated for Transgender Health (WPATH) guidelines. For MTF/FTM bottom surgery, patients will need two separate letters of support from two mental health providers, and one letter of support from their prescribing physician. In some states you will have to live in your chosen gender for one year and be on hormone therapy for one year. For top surgery, patients will need one letter of support from a mental health provider and one letter from their prescribing physician.

After having Gender Affirming Surgery you will need a clean safe space to begin the healing process. You will need someone who can help care for you for a prolonged period of time. Always follow the directions of after care from your surgeon. If you are having surgery in the Spokane area book a room at The Oxford Inn Air Bnb run by Rainbow Alphabet Collective LLC
