I have been on testosterone for nearly 7 months, and my dysphoria with my chest has been getting worse.
I’m a drag king and have been binding since Nov 2019 every so often — I would use duct tape because I’d rather have my chest flat despite the consequences ((please don’t bind with duct tape tho; i’m just mentioning it to show how much discomfort my chest would give me)).
I am unsure of what my insurance will cover - our past one did not, but we just got a new one and I have been trying to schedule a call to see if it will.
The plan is to have double-incision with no nipple grafts.
**Update: Searching surgeons in and out of state - either way, there will be travel and stay expenses
My goal is to have top surgery before I'm 21 - February 22,2022.
Unfortunately, I bus for transportation which makes my scheduling for work, college, and appointments (i.e. Planned Parenthood - almost a 2hr bus ride each way) messy and burns me out. My parents are allowing me to use their insurance as I am their dependent, but they do not approve of the procedure and won't help financially.
Getting top surgery gives me something to look forward to.
I wouldn't be asking if I thought I'd be able to reach my goal on my own.
If insurance does cover a portion of the cost, I will reduce the goal value and/or donate to other trans folx that are in need of surgeries -- queer trans bipoc to the front.
*I will update this on milestones regarding this procedure.
Literally anything is appreciated - even if it is a dollar or a few cents.
