Starting your surgical transition journey can be exciting but also stressful. There will be ups and downs throughout the process and the most important aspect is making sure you have a strong support system of people you love and trust. When you are ready to make that step and schedule your consultation with Dr. Stiller there are a few steps to get there. At Stiller Aesthetics, we follow the World Professional Associated for Transgender Health (WPATH) guidelines for completing your transition. The World Professional Association of Transgender Health is a non-profit, interdisciplinary professional and educational organization devoted to transgender health care. They have set the Standards of Care for the health of transsexual, transgender, and gender nonconforming people.
At Stiller Aesthetics we acknowledge the needs of intersex and non-binary/gender nonconforming patients, please note that we are using specific terminology referenced by WPATH and HCA guidelines. Please reach out to the office to clarify specific requirements related to intersex and non-binary/gender nonconforming needs so we can best support you.
Below is the list of requirements for each procedure of documents that we need before your consultation is scheduled.

Once all documentation is received, your consultation can be scheduled. After your consultation with Dr. Stiller, your authorization will be compiled and submitted to your insurance company for authorization of the surgery. The prior authorization process takes 8-10 weeks from start to finish. Our office does not provide status updates prior to 6 weeks from the date of submission. If you would like an update on the status of your authorization you may call your insurance company and give them the reference number. Our office is not informed of the status of your authorization once it is submitted.
