I am a transgender man and needed a bi-lateral mastectomy and my chest reconstructed to a male chest. It came out great! Dr. Tholen has a unique skill in this area and I highly recommend him for this procedure. The staff at the center is totally trans friendly and knowledgable about everything from proper pronoun use to using my new name! Dr. Tholen even came in on weekends when I needed him for some issues I was having.

Hi Davis, glad all went well and you are very happy with your results! Dr. Tholen, from all accounts seems like a very skilled and talented surgeon. I read about him a lot on this site! Best to you!

Hi Davis P. Thanks for sharing your story on RealSelf. So glad to hear your procedure and experience went smoothly. We are just building out this community so any before and afters you'd be willing to share with others considering the same procedure are amazingly helpful. How's the recovery going?

I was treated with the utmost dignity and respect throughout my entire process. Dr. Tholen as well as the staff were truly professional and friendly. It's the best doctor/patient relationship I've ever had.
