RequirementsPapillon Center follows the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) guidelines for transgender surgery. Two letters of recommendation are required by Papillon Center before surgery. These letters can be from: psychologists, therapists, psychiatrists, sexologists or counselors that have been in regular contact with you. On-going therapy and support is preferable both before and after surgery. Papillon Center can work with patients that have insufficient recommendations.
Smoking will need to cease one month or more prior to surgery, and up to a year afterwards as it impairs the healing process. It is also required that body mass index (BMI) be less then 28. Some medications will need to be stopped before surgery. They can generally be continued after surgery.
Initial ConsultationA consultation is required to setup a surgery date. It is preferable that it takes place in person in our office, however Papillon Center will make accommodations for individuals on a case by case basis.
The procedure(s) are outlined, including cost, risks, complications, and possible outcomes. Dr. McGinn will go over past surgical results, including pictures, as well as expectations and limitations. It is important to be honest and ask questions about subjects that you do not understand.
