Title: Gender Affirmation: Medical and Surgical Perspectives

Editorial: Thieme Medical Publisher

Summary: Some people pursue medical interventions as part of the process of expressing their gender, and an increasing number of gender affirmation surgeries are being performed. This book, which provides comprehensive coverage of the subject, is edited by Professors Monstrey and Djordjevic as well as experienced authors, with over 20 expert contributors from around the world. It features full coverage of both medical and surgical treatment, supported by over 350 full-color drawings, photos and links to surgical videos.

Academic textbook on gender surgery opens with chapter on facial gender affirming procedures

It is somewhat of a statement that FFS surgery begins this academic volume on gender affirming treatment.  The opening chapter by Luis Capitán and Daniel Simon, Facial Feminization Surgery: A Global Approach, begins this extensive and comprehensive overview of transgender healthcare. The main chapters cover voice, breast surgery, vaginoplasty, phalloplasty as well as other medical treatments involving hormones, adolescents, mental and sexual health, and issues of gender identity.
