"My experience with gender variance began in the 1970’s when, as a college student, I acted at the LaMama Theatre with some of the stars from Club 82, and little did I know what the future would hold. By 1979, I was doing a plastic surgery rotation at the Stanford University Transgender Clinic.
Unfortunately, academic transgender surgical programs like Stanford’s and Hopkins were phased out, and only a few clinics would continue transgender surgical practice in the United States. I started my own clinical practice, and my transgender patient population has continued to increase year after year.
I love my transgender patients. You're courageous, sometimes risking everything to physically manifest your true self. To me, your journey epitomizes what plastic surgery is. Unlike other specialty practices that focus on the eyes, joints, bones, or skin; plastic surgery is about transformation. And what could be more transformative than the journey of the gender variant?
When I see how strong the transgender community has grown, I am humbled and grateful to my patients. If you allow me the privilege to care for you, I will do everything in my power to be an understanding person, compassionate doctor, and a skilled plastic surgeon. You have my pledge that I will never to violate the trust you give me."
