GENDER AFFIRMING SURGEONS WITH NO/HIGH BMI LIMIT

Many surgeons have arbitrary BMI limits, a practice which is rooted in fatphobia and archaic science rather than empirical data. This is a list of surgeons who either have no BMI limit or have a BMI limit higher than the average of 30-35. This information is patient-reported and may not necessarily be verified with the surgeon or their office.

This is a list of providers and resources, not a list of recommendations. Please do your own research prior to consulting with and/or having procedures performed by those on this list.
