Can you give the list of best doctors that do top or/and bottom surgeries?
There is no one "BEST" doctor that can do the job perfectly. However, you would want a surgeon with quantity (many years of experience) and quality (very good service) of experience in transgender surgery. Not only that, please keep in mind that each person is different with different medical/health backgrounds. This means that you need to discuss your medical history including your wants and needs for your trans-related surgery.
How do I choose a physician or surgeon that works with transgender patients?
Making medical decisions isn't easy, and also depends on whether you are over age 18. It would be a good idea to join support groups or/and Yahoo groups to email and ask adult trans individuals about health issues, doctor names/locations and surgery experiences/results. You also would want to make consultation appointments to ask doctors/surgeons several (or many!) questions you need to know. That will help you make a decision to choose a doctor that meets your wants and needs.
