Any vaginoplasty Valentine’s Day promotions?, need some financial help

Valentine'

Dr. Reed, Wednesday the 14rth is coming up soon.  I’ve been a transgendered woman for 7 years, have my letters and need some financial help to achieve gender confirmation surgery.  My family is supporting me.  Just a few thousand shy of your published price.  Aisha

Dear Aisha,

Of course, the Reed Centre will provide a compassionate discount.  Speak with Anne on Monday.  Please understand that you still have travel expenses, hotel, vaginal dilators, and small out of pocket expenses for anti-embolism stockings, bed protectors and medications.  You also need some reserve if you are from out of  town for the possibility of followup care with your local doctor such as removal of sutures.

Something that we have introduced in he past year is one-stage vaginoplasty.  While we cannot promise you won’t  need a touch-up, hopefully you will be fully functional and pleasing to look at.  Please see before and after pictures of our vaginoplasty work at srsMiami.com/vaginoplasty and scroll down.
