Gender Affirming Surgery Costs & Payment

Possible Costs of Gender Affirming Surgery

The cost of procedures for gender affirmation / gender reassignment will vary based on a surgeon’s geographic location, on their level of experience, and the extent of the surgical procedures the patient is requesting.

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon, remember that the surgeon’s experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.

Paying for Gender Reassignment Surgery

Be sure to see whether your procedure might be covered by your insurance. As these procedures can be considered a reconstructive procedure, they may be covered or partially covered by health insurance in some cases. Inquire about financing plans, as many plastic surgeon practices do offer these.

Dr. Mundinger’s surgical team advocates for insurance authorization no matter a patient’s insurance status for all transgender procedures. If we are unsuccessful in securing insurance coverage for your procedures, we have several options for non-insurance payment, including cash pay, payment plans, and plastic surgery care credit.

Possible Costs of Gender Reassignment Surgery may include:

  • A fee for an initial consult if applicable
