UW Medicine will be offering bottom surgery in Seattle – as soon as this Spring!
Our reaction when we got the news?
Until now, Washington residents had only one option for bottom surgeries in-state: Stiller Aesthetics in Spokane – and phalloplasty wasn’t available in WA, only vaginoplasty. Residents seeking phalloplasty or metoidioplasty had to travel out of state for surgery. We’re so excited to share the news that UW Medicine/Harborview will be adding several options for gender affirming bottom surgeries this spring, including:
* Abdominal Phalloplasty
* Anterolateral Thigh Free Flap Phalloplasty (ATF,)
* Radial Forearm Free Flap Phalloplasty (RFFF,)
* Ring Flap Phalloplasty,
* SCIP Phalloplasty
* Revision Phalloplasty
* Penile Inversion Vaginoplasty (PIV)
* Peritoneal (Pull-through) Vaginoplasty (PPV,)
* Minimal Depth Vaginoplasty
* Intestinal Vaginoplasty
Surgeries will initially be performed at Harborview, and later at NW Hospital.
