Hans Kai 4 Trans – Your Body, Surgery Choices and Care (Victoria) — Wednesday, May 18th
Hans Kai 4 Trans – Your Body, Surgery Choices and Care
Metoidioplasty, vaginoplasty, hysterectomy, orchiectomy, phalloplasty, oophorectomy, augmentation, bilateral mastectomy
We sort it all under the simpler terms of top and bottom surgery. Sometimes referred to gender affirmation surgery, sexual reassignment surgery, or as Medical Services refers to it, surgery for the alteration of appearance. Whatever it is called or which surgery you are considering – there are a lot of choices. Choices not only about what – but for many people where. When can matter both in the how long it takes to get on a surgeons waiting list, clear the various hurdles to get on the list and the affect on the lives closest to us. These are life changing events and we are often forced to rely on the scraps of conversations grabbed here and there or the countless pages of internet musings that are hard to verify whether of worth or not.
We wanted to do something about that – so we found people who had experienced surgery here in Canada, Europe, Asia and other parts of North America. We asked them to be prepared to answer any question. So bring it on. We call it no holds barred, though perhaps no holes barred might be better for this event.
