What is Gender-Affirming Care?

Below is a timeline for those undergoing gender-affirming (and other) surgeries. Schedule your Uncle Nat’s care regime to speed up your healing, reduce scarring, and get the best results.

Post-op care services are also amazing for c-sections, chest augmentations, those who may be susceptible to keloid scarring, or who need any other type of wound or scar support.

If you’re looking for more information about what your unique wound or scar healing process could look like,

BEGIN LED LIGHT THERAPY

The minute you are ready to change your bandages, you should come to the shop for LED light therapy. We can help you remove your bandages and replace them after your session. This will help inhibit the scarification process. You can do LED as often as you like.

CUSTOM ENZYMATIC SKIN TREATMENT

6 weeks post-op: come in for a custom enzymatic skin treatment to refresh the area and boost the healthy skin around your scar. For optimal results we recommend a treatment every 4-6 weeks through the duration of your healing.

GRASTON WORK & KINESIO TAPING

See William, our occupational therapeutic practitioner for scar reduction and adhesion support. Both modalities are designed to break down the established scar tissue. Graston is an implement-assisted, fast paced, massage technique which will target any build up of tissue. The Kinesio Tape will then be placed to create tension in opposition to scar growth, smoothing it out over time while also promoting blood flow to the area.

We are currently unable to take insurance for our services, but are making plans to change that within the year. If you’d like to be notified when insurance options are available, please join our newsletter.
