Gender Affirming Surgeries


ASPS are currently working on information about the various types of gender-affirming surgeries and procedures. General information about top surgery (including breast/chest), bottom surgery (including genital reconfiguration surgery, bilateral orchiectomy), facial procedures, and other non-genital/non-breast surgeries (such as tracheal shaves) will be found here once live.

ASPS are active participants in the Australian Collaborative on Access to Gender Affirming Medical Services (ACA-GAMS). The purpose of the Collaborative is to work towards improving access to gender affirming surgeries and health related services on the Medicare Benefits Schedule. If you would like to be kept updated on progress, please email us with your contact details at
