Gender Affirming Surgery Info Session: Top Surgery
Description: Dr. Mosser will be giving two different presentations back to back both on the topic of top surgery. I
n the first hour from 10-11am Dr. Mosser will talk about quite a few aspects of masculinizing top surgery which is often called transgender mastectomy surgery. He will talk about patient goals and priorities, anatomic variations, and the choices that patients need to make in order to pick a surgery that matches their goals and bodies as well as possible. He will also talk about challenges for patients and their families who are seeking top surgery, such as the insurance approval process, and what aspects of the journey toward surgery are difficult for adolescents.
In the second hour, Dr. Mosser will be discussing chest anatomy from the transfeminine perspective and how breast aesthetic ideals, body balance, and body development challenges help us make good decisions about chest reconstruction with breast augmentation. Please note that in both presentations medical photos depicting nudity of the chest will be down.
