Double Mastectomies As Young as 12-Years Old

(See my “Detransition Tag” for all related posts)

  • The research did not look at ‘bottom’ surgeries among minors, which involve removing or modifying youngsters’ sex organs. These procedures are also thought to have risen in recent years. (DAILY MAIL)

The deeper you dig in the dark warrens of adolescent transgender medicine, the more convinced you become that the doctors who operate on young girls are criminal or insane or both.

I know that sounds extreme. But how can a decent person read the bare statistics in a recent article in one of the world’s leading paediatrics journals without feeling rage?

A brief report from four doctors at Vanderbilt University, “Gender-Affirming Chest Reconstruction Among Transgender and Gender-Diverse Adolescents in the US From 2016 to 2019” appeared in JAMA PEDIATRICS earlier this week. It is “the largest investigation to date of gender-affirming chest reconstruction in a pediatric population” to date.

The researchers found that the incidence of “gender-affirming chest reconstruction” surgery for children under 18 – better known as double mastectomies or “top jobs” — increased by 389 percent between 2016 and 2019. (These “chest reconstructions” included some boys who presumably wanted breast implants – but these were only 1.4 percent.)

An estimated 1,130 “top jobs” were performed during those four years on girls as young as 12. What kind of doctor amputates the healthy breasts of a 12-year-old girl?

According to the data, based on the Nationwide Ambulatory Surgery Sample, the Vanderbilt doctors calculated that 5.5 percent of the children were under 14, 21.5 percent under 15, and 56 percent under 16.

It gets worse.

Through the distorted lens of the billion-dollar sex-reassignment surgery industry, “top jobs” might make sense as the last step in the gender-affirmation template. After a gender-dysphoric girl has experimented with living in a male body for months or years, she wants her chest to look masculine. She proceeds through the following steps:

  • I know I’m a boy in a girl’s body.
  • I need social affirmation.
  • I need puberty blockers.
  • I need cross-sex hormones.
  • I need a double mastectomy.

But according to the figures compiled by the Vanderbilt doctors, only 19.9 percent of these girls had hormone therapy before surgery. That means that the overwhelming majority of these young girls – 80.1 percent – had their breasts amputated without attempting to masculinise their bodies.


Amputation without hormone therapy makes no sense even in the Alice in Wonderland universe of transgender medicine. It is sheer mutilation. It is worse than prescribing liposuction for a 12-year-old suffering from anorexia nervosa. Or amputating limbs or severing spinal cords for people suffering from Body Integrity Identity Disorder. Where are the studies which show that “top jobs” alone will solve girls’ gender dysphoria?

Furthermore, more than a third of the girls had been diagnosed with anxiety or depression. (The study fails to mention autism, which is often implicated in gender dysphoria.) What kind of surgeon amputates the breasts of a mentally-ill teenager?


The data in this study are already nearly three years old. How many more girls will be maimed for life by sociopathic surgeons before Americans wake up to this grotesque violation of human rights?


Detransitioned teen, Layla Jane, sues Kaiser Permanente after getting double mastectomy at age 13:

DAILY MAIL has this on Layla Jane (hat-tip GATEWAY PUNDIT):

According to legal papers, Layla experienced moodiness, anxiety, gender confusion and anger issues as a child. At age 11 learned about radical transgender ideology and went online to learn more about the new trend.

She self-diagnosed that she was a boy and believed transitioning would solve her mental health problems.

According to the suit, doctors at the Permanente Medical Group and Kaiser Foundation Hospitals rushed her on to cross-sex hormones and a double mastectomy without properly assessing her mental health problems.

Her evaluations lasted only 30 minutes and 75 minutes, records show.

Legal papers identify the carers as Susanne Watson, a psychiatrist in Oakland, San Francisco-based plastic surgeon Winnie Tong, and Lisa Taylor, a pediatric endocrinologist in Oakland.

They are accused of ‘intentional, malicious, and oppressive concealment of important information and false representations’ that saw Layla pushed into the procedures.

It’s claimed they presented Layla Jane and her parents with a terrifying choice: ‘Would you rather have a live son, or a dead daughter?’ — language that echoes complaints from other detransitioners across the US.

‘These are decisions I will have to live with for the rest of my life,’ Layla said in a statement.

‘I’m ready to join the growing group of detransitioners so that no other child has to go through the torment I went through at the hands of doctors I should have been able to trust.’

In the above video Chloe Cole is mentioned:

Chloe Cole—joined by Harmeet Dhillon who is representing her—talks about suing the doctors who originally transitioned her: “It’s a medical malpractice case. I want to hold the adults who put me in harm’s way accountable.”

POST MILLENNIAL has more about Boston Children’s Hospital:

Boston Children’s Hospital boasts about having the first pediatric transgender surgery center in the country offering a “full suite of surgical options for transgender teens.”

Boston Children’s Hospital promotes their surgeries through a video series on their official YouTube channel, with titles like “What You Need To Know Before Phalloplasty Surgery.” The 90 videos in the series paint a rosy picture of the genital, chest and face surgeries they offer, accompanied by upbeat background music.  

Chris Elston, otherwise known as “Billboard Chris,” shared a tweet on Tuesday of a video in the Children’s Hospital playlist called “What happens during a gender-affirming hysterectomy?”

In that video, Dr. Frances Grimstad describes the process of getting a “gender affirming hysterectomy.”

It is “very similar to most hysterectomies that occur. Hysterectomy itself is the removal of the uterus, cervix, which is the opening of the uterus, and the the fallopian tubes which are attached to the sides of the uterus,” Grimstad says with a smile. Grimstad says that some “gender affirming hysterectomies will also include the removal of the ovaries,” in short, the entire female reproductive system.


A bulletin on the Children’s Hospital Gender Multispecialty Service (GeMS) homepage reads, “At Boston Children’s, we are proud to be home to the first pediatric and adolescent transgender health program in the United States” that has treated “more than 1,000 families to date.”

Boston Children’s Hospital founded the Gender Multispecialty Service (GeMs) program in 2007 and welcomes patients as young as 3 years old. “At GeMS, our mission is to assess and care for gender-diverse children, teens, and young adults.”

GeMS provides “a variety of options for medical transition” that include prescribing puberty blockers, testosterone, estrogen and plastic surgery from their surgery center. “Our skilled team includes specialists in plastic surgery, urology, endocrinology, nursing, gender management, and social work, who collaborate to provide a full suite of surgical options for transgender teens and young adults,” the website reads.


But Safer cites a conceptually flawed study which he claims is proof that “gender identity is rooted in biology” that changed his mind. “Which makes it so logical that an option for people in 2016 is to change the external appearance to meet that gender identity,” he said.

The WPATH lists surgical complications of genital surgeries in their Standards of Care guidelines. Vaginoplasties may incur “complete or partial necrosis of the vagina and labia, fistulas from the bladder or bowel into the vagina, stenosis of the urethra, and vaginas that are either too short or too small for coitus.”

WPATH warns that patients who obtain phalloplasty may suffer “frequent urinary tract stenoses and fistulas, and occasionally necrosis of the neophallus. Metoidioplasty results in a micropenis, without the capacity for standing urination. Phalloplasty, using a pedicled or a free vascularized flap, is a lengthy, multi-stage procedure with significant morbidity that includes frequent urinary complications and unavoidable donor site scarring,”

Amir Taghinia, a plastic surgeon who is a member of Boston Children’s transgender surgery team, says that 30 to 50 percent of phalloplasty patients seek treatment for a blocked or leaking urethra.


Dave Rubin of “The Rubin Report” shares a clip of detransitioner Chloe Cole sharing her heartbreaking story of how she was fast tracked into transgender surgery. Her testimony was given to fight Scott Wiener’s SB 107 proposal to make California a sanctuary state for trans kids escaping the trans healthcare bans in red states and provide gender affirming care for any kid who wants it.
