Gender-Affirming Surgeries: Planning through Post-op for Transgender and Gender-Nonconforming Adults is adapted from the more comprehensive A Practical Reference for Transgender and Gender-Nonconforming Adults, stepping the reader chronologically through the long, complicated, often confusing surgery process.

You'll learn what major masculinizing and feminizing surgery options and procedures are right for you, including new vaginoplasty techniques, phalloplasty refinements, and even nonbinary options. Find out how to choose a surgeon, pay for surgery, and get healthy beforehand by quitting smoking and losing weight. The book also covers myriad aspects of post-operative care, such as nutrition for better healing, pain management, post-vaginoplasty dilation, recognizing post-operative complications, and when to seek help.

Richly illustrated and written in clear, accessible language with deep medical accuracy and compassion, this book is a must-read before your own surgery-and to keep at your bedside afterward. If you're a caregiver, partner, or parent, it will give you confidence as an advocate. If you're a physician, an ARNP or PA, or a mental health professional, you probably did not receive this training in medical school-and here's your chance to learn now.
