Request for advice from other trans women
I’ve been trying to decide on SRS surgeons for a while now. I think I have a pretty good handle on all the factors involved, and what kinds of things to look for. Problem is, it’s very hard to find even semi-objective reviews of the various clinics and surgeons, because… well, the majority of trans women who get this done are just extremely happy. Which is understandable! But it’s kinda frustrating when you’re trying to get, y’know, solid information.
So I’m open to suggestions from trans women who have experience with this sort of search. Do you have any recommendations? Is there anything crucial that I should be aware of? Are there any websites you can recommend that will help me narrow things down? Don’t worry about telling me something I already (think I) know; it never hurts to hear it confirmed. :) And please understand that I’m not asking you to do my homework for me; I’m asking you to maybe point me in the right direction, or make recommendations based on your own knowledge/experience which I can then factor into my decisions. :)
Some things to keep in mind if you choose to give me advice:
- Price is the most important factor by far; however, having said that, I really don’t want to have to compromise appearance and *cough* functionality, either.
- I live in the US, but I wouldn’t mind traveling (e.g., going to Thailand) if it would save me money overall.
- I would prefer to have the entire thing done in one shot (i.e., not need additional labiaplasty after the “main” operation), if possible.
Signal boost! I know I have lots of trans* followers, some of whom are equipped to answer these questions. Drop Kiri a line if you can help her out!
I would very much appreciate it if my followers could spread this post far and wide, even if you don’t know the answers yourself. <3
