Not sure which Top Surgery procedure is for you? This chart shows how the transgender surgery team in Gent, Belgium determine the appropriate procedure.

Semicircular is what is called Keyhole here, and Concentric Circular is Peri-areolar. (Note how they use a couple of surgery techniques that are rarely used in the States if at all, namely Transareolar and Extended Concentric.)

Transgender couple make history with birth of their first child
Transgender man and transgender woman become parents.

A transgender man has given birth after conceiving with his transgender wife, The Independent reports. The couple is the first transgender couple in South America to do so. 

Fernando Machado, who was assigned female at birth, and his partner Diane Rodriguez, who was assigned male, welcomed their first child.

‘Being a mother was never something I thought I would do because I am a transsexual,’ Ms. Rodriguez says  to The Daily Mail:

'The law before demanded that to be recognized as a woman you had to be castrated.’

In 2013 she became the he first transgender candidate to run for Congress in Ecuador.

After having top surgery in February, getting hit by a car in May, and having my bike stolen last month - its been a chaotic 2016. Now having sometimes less than 30 hours a week between two jobs due to hour cuts; I'm really struggling. I have medical bills and credit card bills from paying for top...

I’m incredibly overwhelmed and I’m asking for a little bit of help.

If you have anything to give i would be forever grateful.

Additionally, I have a venmo account - masonjhealy - if you would prefer to donate there.

Thank you so much <3
