Dear Sir or Madam:
Despite a recent increase in the number of scientific publications on transgender surgery, there is a dearth of well-organized, prospective evaluations of or evaluation tools for this patient population . To that end, we have created a novel questionnaire, which we adapted from the BREAST-Q and from other surveys in the transgender literature. We have validated survey items and propose a revised version based on our results.
