The Gender Confirmation Center (GCC) sees patients from all across the world. To increase accessibility, our team of expert surgeons offer complimentary virtual consultations. Prior to your consultation, you will need to upload photos onto our secure online portal. Our surgeons use the photos to assess what procedure types and techniques may be best for. For instance, clear photos of your whole torso (for top surgery) and whole body (for body contouring) is necessary.
In order to get the most out of your time with your surgeon it’s very important to try to take photos that fit the criteria below. Please note that the same photo taking criteria applies to your online follow-ups (after top surgery). The information below can also be viewed, shared and printed as PDF images via these top surgery, body contouring and facial surgery photo guide links.
The minimum requirements to keep in mind when taking photos are as follows:
Our surgical team will need photos from 5 different angles of your whole torso (not just chest tissue area). Although it may be challenging, try to ensure your photos look as similar as possible to the photos below:
You’ll need to provide our team with 6 different photo angles (pictured below). When taking the photos you should be standing with your feet a shoulder width apart. Below our model photo set are undergarment options to consider prior to taking your photos.
The virtual consultation will be billed to your insurance company. We will accept the insurance reimbursement as payment in full.
