Transgender Feminization & Masculinization Surgery Alternatives

Transgender Feminization & Masculinization Surgery Alternatives

Feminization body contouring is generally considered a surgical procedure that can be done to reduce or eliminate fat in different areas of the body. There are many different ways to do this, but one of the most popular is through liposuction. The procedure is typically performed by a plastic surgeon or general surgeon who will then remove the fat cells with a scalpel or suction.

The nice thing is - is that there are alternatives available. Here at YOU by Cally's Vancouver Inch Loss, we have personalized & comprehensive plans available for you. We have a non-judgmental & inclusive environment for everyone to feel safe.

First - it's important to know about some of the various body contouring options available:

CoolSculpting is a procedure that uses cold to freeze fat cells. The fat cells are then naturally removed by the body after the treatment.

Feminization Contouring surgery is a set of surgical procedures that alter typically male features to bring them closer in shape and size to typical female features. These procedures can include anything from Brazilian Butt Lifts to Facial Feminization contouring surgery.

Lipo Laser uses a laser to break down fat cells in the body. The laser breaks the fat cells down into smaller particles, which are then flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system.

Electromuscle Stimulation (YOU by Cally FastTRACK Eurowave) is a non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency energy & a faradic wave to help you lose inches and get the body you deserve. The treatment will help you lose inches, tighten your skin, and improve your shape. It's a safe and effective way to get the body you want without going under the knife - plus it preserves the fat cells. It doesn't destroy them.

Transgender folks may want to change their body features to match the gender they identify with. This can be done through hormones, (sometimes) surgery and other treatments to help alleviate gender dysphoria. Hormones are usually taken for a year or more before surgery. Hormones allow the person's body to change in ways that make it feel more like the gender they identify with. 

Many of our Male to Female (MTF) and Female to Male (FTM) clients are looking to find ways to help attain a certain look to help their gender dysphoria symptoms.

For our MTF clients, they are generally wanting to cinch in their waist to create a correct proportion, build the muscle in the bum & thighs to round out their features, toning the muscle in the arms, & more. We cannot work on the face or neck area, as our treatments will not work in these areas.

For those that are planning on receiving a Vaginoplasty surgery (aka bottom surgery), we also can help strengthen your lower abdomen muscles beforehand, and then once you have healed enough, help strengthen those muscles to renew the muscle memory in your lower ab muscles to improve healing overall.

For our FTM clients, they are generally looking to bulk up their muscles in certain areas. We highly encourage a workout regimen and a high protein diet - along with our FastTRACK Muscle Building treatments. We generally focus on the upper arm (biceps & triceps definition), and well as bulking the waist/abdomen area for the "6-pack) look and thicker mid-riff area.

Cost-wise, our services are a much more manageable option, and you get deep muscle toning that lasts for at least 6-8 months (longer if you are active & workout). For clients traveling in from out of town, we also do have express services available. We can do full body makeovers within 5 days, for example.
