Experienced surgeon: I am hoping you have been taking female hormones with the supervision of a medical doctor, preferably an endocrinologist who specializes in gender reassignment hormone therapy. Such a specialist may help guide you to a surgeon that is experienced in gender reassignment surgeries. Also you could search online and make sure the chosen surgeon has a lot of experience and has done many such surgeries
