What is Gender Dysphoria, and How Can Transgender Treatments Help?

Gender dysphoria is the feeling of distress or discomfort that can occur in men and women whose gender identity differs from their sex assigned at birth.

Some common symptoms of gender dysphoria include:

    • Difference between inner gender and outward characteristics
    • Desire for attributes of the opposite sex
    • Significant distress or impairment in social, occupational or other areas of functioning

Some who experience this phenomenon ultimately decide to transition from one sex to another. Transgender treatments offer ways to help transitioning men and women feel more comfortable with their appearance and allow their bodies to better reflect their inner selves.

What Types of Transgender Treatments are Offered at Bawa Medical?

Bawa Medical understands that each transitioning patient’s journey will be unique. For this reason, Dr. Bawa has sought out and assembled some of the most advanced transgender treatments in the industry in her Boca Raton practice.

Transgender Hormone Treatment

Transgender hormone replacement therapy treatments are the primary medical intervention sought by male and female transgender patients. Using hormones including but not limited to estrogen or testosterone, hormone therapy promotes the development of characteristics more akin to the opposite sex, thus creating an appearance and identity that align with an individual’s gender identity. 

Transgender Hormone Therapy can:

  • Reduce gender dysphoria issues
  • Prevent emotional and psychological distress
  • Enhance sexual satisfaction
  • Improve quality of life

Transgender hormone treatments are not suitable for everyone, so patients will need to meet with an experienced professional like Dr. Bawa before proceeding with a treatment regimen. Dr. Bawa will conduct a full medical screening and recommend the right treatment plan for your unique situation. 

Dr. Bawa offers two kinds of transition hormone replacement therapy: male to female (MTF) and female to male (FTM).

Feminizing hormone therapy induces physical changes to a male patient’s body to promote gender congruence, the matching of their body and gender identity. 

Some of the primary benefits of this therapy include:

  • Slowing of scalp hair loss
  • Softer and less oily skin
  • Breast development
  • Testicular atrophy
  • Redistribution of body fat
  • Reduced facial and body hair growth
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Voice feminization

Female to male hormone therapy seeks to provide transitioning female to male patients with more masculine characteristics. 

Some of the most prevalent advantages of FTM hormone therapy include:

  • Cessation of period
  • Deepened voice
  • Increased strength and muscle mass
  • Facial and body hair growth
  • Body fat redistribution
  • Clitoral enlargement and vaginal atrophy

Transgender Hormone Treatment

Transgender patients often feel the need to change their facial structure and appearance to reflect their post-transition identity. For such patients, Dr. Bawa recommends several non-surgical methods for transgender facial feminization or masculinization that include:

Dr. Bawa can leverage these procedures to reshape areas of the face, add volume, and refine key features to deliver a more feminine or masculine appearance. Be sure to view Dr. Bawa’s other skin, laser, injectable, and PRFM treatments for even more facial rejuvenation options.

Transgender Hair Treatments

Hair is an important aspect for transgender patients looking to assume their new identity. Dr. Bawa is an expert in surgical and non-surgical hair restoration, offering a significant advantage to her transgender patients. Some of these include:

Dr. Bawa’s transgender patients often seek hair transplantation to the head (MTF seeking more hair up top) and also to the face (FTM seeking fuller facial hair). Dr. Bawa maintains expertise in a variety of hair restoration treatments to keep her patients’ options plentiful, including non-surgical hair restoration. Dr. Bawa performs beard and eyebrow transplants as well. See some before and after photos of Dr. Bawa’s patients in our gallery

Many patients (particularly MTF) desire transgender laser hair removal in specific areas. These often include the face, body, arms, legs, and other regions. The results are sleeker and more feminine skin that is free of excessive body hair.
