Canadian doctor pockets $9,000 to remove breasts from 14-year-old girls who believe they’re ‘boys’

Canadian doctor pockets $9,000 to remove breasts from 14-year-old girls who believe they’re ‘boys’, by James Risdon.

A plastic surgeon in Toronto who calls himself a “leader in the LGBT community” has admitted to performing double mastectomies on girls as young as fourteen who believe themselves to be ‘boys.’

Dr. Marc DuPéré will perform the procedure, despite the vast majority of children with gender identity confusion eventually reverting to their natal sex, as long as the teen girl is “firm about the decision to transition,” he wrote in a now deleted post on his website. …

His Visage Clinic in Toronto offers these “top surgeries” for about $9,000 and he recalls removing the breasts of two 14-year-old girls in the last five years. He also admits he’s done a few more of these surgeries on girls 15 and 16-years-old. …

There’s also evidence many children simply grow out of their feelings that they are the other gender. Western Sydney University professor of pediatrics John Whitehall has reportedly said that up to 90 per cent of transgender children simply change their minds by puberty. …

A female-to-male transgendered person who later decides to start living as a woman again might also face more difficulty in finding an understanding partner as she could not hide the old scars.
