The goals of treatment are breast development, feminized complexion, softening and feminizing of body contours. Dr. Horowitz uses oral, injectable, implantable and topical estrogen preparations that are customized to the individual’s needs.

Masulinizing Therapy:
Masculinizing hormone therapy helps to stop all menstrual activity, develop facial and body hair, lower the voice, and modify the body to a masculine shape. Testosterone is offered as injectable, implantable, or topical preparations according the patient’s needs and preference.
