About This Episode

In episode twenty-four of Exclusively Inclusive, Erin Everett, NP-C, speaks with Dr. Sidhbh Gallagher, a double board-certified surgeon in both general and plastic surgery, who offers all kinds of plastic surgery and cosmetic elective procedures with a special emphasis on gender affirmation, including feminization, masculization, and non-binary-specific procedures. Dr. Gallagher runs a practice in Miami with her sister Neasa.

During the episode, Erin and Dr. Gallagher discuss the importance of individualized, rather than cookie cutter, care and informed consent to make sure patients are happy with their results. Dr. Gallagher notes that ensuring patients are educated about their options, the risks, and the benefits is of the utmost importance in her practice. She also shares the idea that, especially when it comes to gender affirming procedures, the patient knows best.

Later in the episode, Dr. Gallagher shares more details about her favorite procedures and the various options patients have when they come to see her for a procedure. Dr. Gallagher also shares some of her particular views and techniques. For example, she uses the term masculoplasty instead of mastectomy to be more inclusive of transmasculine patients and employs a drain-free technique for top surgery that helps patients feel more comfortable and lessens risks of complication.

Further in the episode, Erin and Dr. Gallagher talk about making more complicated medical information more accessible to the public through social media platforms like TikTok and YouTube, which Dr. Gallagher has been focused on more lately as a way to reach folks who might not otherwise have access to this important information.

Rounding out the episode, Erin asks Dr. Gallagher about the logistics patients should expect when reaching out for a consultation. Her practice offers virtual consultations with patients, due to the pandemic and the number of patients who fly into Miami for surgery. If a patient reaches out, they should hear back within a couple of days and get a consultation in a couple of weeks.
