Cosmetic Concierge would like to thank psychologist David Bathory for inviting Dr. Sherie to be the first guest at his Transgender Surgeon Series in Winston-Salem. Dr. Sherie had a great time talking to David's group and getting to see some old friends as well. The event was titled "An Evening With Dr. Hope Sherie" and was the first of a series of surgeon presentations he has lined up for his Trans Support Group. More information about the group can be found here.
Dr. Sherie is honored to speak at the 15th Annual Philadelphia Trans Health Conference.

More about the conference: The mission of the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference (PTHC) is to educate and empower trans individuals on issues of health and well-being; educate and inform allies and health service providers; and facilitate networking, community-building, and systemic change.

The Mecklenburg Psychology Association (MPA) invited Cosmetic Concierge to participate in the "Trans 101" panel presentation to their members. The discussions were enlightening and we believe this kind of interdisciplinary activity is the key to offering world class services to the whole Charlotte community.
Dispensing Hope Our Charlotte neighbors are truly "Dispensing Hope" by providing prescription medications and medical supplies to the 360,000 uninsured citizens of NC! Thank you NC MedAssist, Novant Health, and all other sponsors for hosting this luncheon. 8% of the uninsured citizens in America live in North Carolina. Until changes are made to medicare laws, we will continue to try and care for one another in the meantime. The Cosmetic Concierge team is dedicated to giving professional care to ALL patients by providing flexible payment plans/options, community giveback initiatives, and truly caring about each individual we meet.
Cosmetic Concierge Volunteers with NC MedAssist Recently the staff of Cosmetic Concierge took time out to volunteer at the NC MedAssist monthly OTC (over the counter) give-away. We helped with the give away and we also saw people for free "lumps and bumps" consultations to look at lesions and give advice. We will be offering follow-up care to the folks we saw today who would benefit from biopsies or minor procedures. We love our team and our Charlotte community, and always enjoy the chance to give back. For more information on NC MedAssist and these great events you can visit their website.

Qnotes Volume 30, Number 12 I was happy to see Jeff Taylor's article in Qnotes exploring breast cancer risk and the transgender community. He makes an important point that we all, cis and trans men and women, have breast tissue which extends to the clavicles (collar bones) and into the axillae (underarms) and is retained after mastectomies in cis women and chest reconstructions in trans men. During ten years as a general surgeon I coordinated the surgeries and oncological care for cis women with breast cancer, as well as 3 cis men with the disease. Now, as a cosmetic surgeon performing "Top Surgeries" for trans men and women, I am often [...]
Cosmetic Surgery Is Not A Modern Phenomenon. The history of cosmetic surgery goes as far back as 2000 B.C. In India and Egypt. In 600 B.C., the Indian doctor Acharya Sushrut published the Sushruta Samhita, a collection of medical texts about plastic surgery, the first of its kind. In ancient Egypt, reeds were used after nose reconstructions to keep the nostrils open as the nose healed. In another part of the world, Roman physicians practiced their own nascent forms of cosmetic surgery during the first century. With a culture that highly valued the physique and beauty of the natural human body, ancient Roman surgeons worked to restore the [...]
