Requests for gender reassignment or gender confirmation surgery in Toronto have increased dramatically over the past 15 years. Attitudes have evolved, and the transgender community has become much more visible and vocal, especially here in Canada’s largest metropolis. We’re fortunate to live in a time and place that celebrates diversity.
About Gender Confirmation Surgery
Like language itself, the vocabulary referring to gender identity changes over time. Terms currently used for this purpose include transgender, trans, trans-male, trans-female, female-to-male (FTM), and male-to-female (MTF). The names of relevant surgical procedures also incorporate these words. Many patients in Toronto reference “top surgery” when describing any procedure that involves the breasts — whether adding them or taking them away.
