Surgeons who supplied their surgical criteria

Dr. Beverly Fischer

     My name is Bettye and I am Dr. Fischer's nurse. I am relatively new to Dr. Fischer's practice, but during the time that I have been here, I can say that the FTM chest surgery is one her favorite surgeries. It has been a very rewarding experience for everyone at the Advanced Center working with the FTM community.

Surgery Types/Procedures, Costs and other great information!
     Dr. Fischer uses one of two approaches regarding the mastectomy.
It is dependent on how much breast tissue you have.  If you are a B cup or smaller, you would be eligible for the periareolar approach.  This means making the incision around the areola and it is virtually a scarless procedure.  The other technique, which is the most popular, is the double incision.  Dr. Fischer makes her incision following the border of the pectoralis muscle, and when it heals, the incision looks like a shadow under the pec.  She gets beautiful contour in the chest and the nipples are replaced as grafts.  They loose erotic sensation, but maintain protective sensation.  Either surgery takes about 4 hours and you will be in recovery for about one hour.
     You will wear a compression vest for about 2-3 weeks and have drains in for about 7-10 days, depending on how much drainage you have after surgery.  We like for you to stay in the area until the drains are removed, if possible.  Or you could have the doctor that does your pre-surgical clearance, or physical, remove the drains.  You should arrange that with him/her prior to surgery, however.
     If you decide to schedule surgery with us, I will send you a list of hotels in the area which charge about $79/night. 
     We also would like for you to have a doctor in your area, preferably a surgeon, who can follow you post-operatively, should the need arise.
     The total cost of the surgery is $6800.00 (OLD PRICE - subject to change!) and that covers everything. 10% is paid on the day that you book your surgery and the balance is due 3 weeks prior to the surgery date. 

Surgery Requirements: You will also need medical clearance from your family doctor.  A history and physical and a blood test, called a CBC is required.  It has no bearing on the surgery if you take testosterone or not.  You will also need a letter from your therapist regarding the gender issue.
     If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to call me at (410) 308-4700.  We are currently booking about 2-3 months in advance.  All scheduling can be done via phone.  You can put the 10% on a credit card or mail it to us prior to scheduling.  Unfortunately, we do not offer any financing.
     Looking forward to talking with you.


Go Back to Dr. Bev. Fischer's Listing


Dr. Menard / Brassard Surgery Requirements:  (FTM Top surgery) ** See Pricing info on their Phalloplasty at the end of this page!

We respect the Harry Benjamin Standards.  

For chest surgery: One letter after 6 months of therapy.  Hormone therapy is not mandatory.

Other for Bottom Surgery (paraphrased from GRS site by Nick):

  • Hormonal sex reassignment (Testosterone) for Gender reassignment (bottom surgery) by a clinical behavioural scientist (your doctor or endocrinologist)

  • Live as male for 12 full months

  • 2 Letters from mental health professionals; who alone, without colleagues - first from a person with a maters degree in gender identity disorders - second from a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist.

Go Back to Menard's Listing


Dr. Foerester OKC, OK: Requirements: 2 Letters - One from a therapist or psychiatrist and one from a medical doctor preferably the doctor who prescribes your hormones and maintains your health related issues in this area.
