Trans Male Statistics
Though 77% of trans men proceeded with hormone treatment. Of all surveyed trans guys, 63% received ‘top surgery’ to create a masculine chest and 28% stated that they would have partaken of chest surgery if given the finances (that is a 91% that desire top surgery). Perhaps the most interesting statistic is that of all of the trans men surveyed, none had undergone sex reassignment surgery (SRS) to create a penis, however, only 31% expressed disinterest. The lack of ‘bottom surgery’ (SRS) is likely due in part to the astronomical price of 30-100 thousand dollars for the procedure and the poor results.

Female-to-male transgender quality of life
This article is a scholarly research done on FTMs “Quality of Life” over emotional, mental, physical, etc well being in comparison to the cisgender population, and the effects of testosterone treatment on that QOL. The findings are very interesting and prove that testosterone treatment greatly improves the quality of life and the mental health and well being of trans men and suggests that tguys need greater access to medical attention in a timely fashion.
