Gender Affirmation Surgery The Division of Plastic Surgery at Connecticut Children’s offers surgical options for gender affirmation to adolescents who have documented and persistent gender dysphoria. Gender incongruence occurs when a person’s sex assigned at birth does not correspond to the gender with which they identify. Gender affirmation operations are a group of surgical procedures that may be appropriate for transgender and gender diverse people to help affirm their gender identity. The Division of Plastic Surgery at Connecticut Children’s works closely with our endocrinologist colleagues, patients and their families to determine the best plan of care. We strictly adhere to World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) standards of care in all of our treatments to provide the best care to our transgender and gender non-conforming patients and families.
