Transgender Body Contouring Procedure
Many patients who want to obtain the body of their dreams have different goals in mind. Some patients want to rid themselves of burdensome, sagging skin and enhance their figure after massive weight loss. Others, such as trans men and trans women, want to get a step closer to having their physical body match their true gender identity. Body contouring can address multiple concerns at once, ultimately freeing transgender patients from the uncomfortable reminder of their gender dysphoria. Dr. Hadeed performs various surgeries for optimal body contouring to give his patients the physique they desire.
