For many patients, a vital step in the gender confirmation journey involves adjusting their bodies so that they better align with their preferred identity. Dr. Leif Rogers, MD, FACS has extensive experience with clavicle and shoulder lengthening, each of which can help you enjoy your ideal look.
Who Qualifies for Clavicle Lengthening?
You’re likely to be an ideal candidate for clavicle lengthening surgery if you’re in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the surgery and recovery process. This procedure is typically reserved for patients with significant functional limitations or cosmetic concerns related to their clavicle length, as it is a complex and delicate procedure that carries some risks and requires a significant commitment to post-operative rehabilitation.
Dr. Rogers makes it a point to work closely with each patient who comes to his practice and will ensure that you have a very clear idea as to what your shoulder or clavicle lengthening surgery will entail. He’ll explain his technique to you, give you an idea of where incisions will be placed, and generally ensure that you have a solid sense of peace of mind as you get ready to undergo your surgery and enjoy the exciting results it’ll create.
During this initial consultation, you’ll also get the chance to ask just about any questions you might have about the surgery and the recovery period you’ll experience after it’s over. Dr. Rogers will also help you explore the various other treatments that are available to you, as his extensive skill frequently enables him to combine multiple modalities and leave patients with excitingly comprehensive results.
