Meet Euro Trilll Gender Affirmation Patient

With Gender-Affirming Surgery, Euro Finds Joy and Freedom

For as long as he can remember,  Euro Trilll felt a disconnect between his body and his gender identity. Growing up in Massenricht, Germany and Tampa, Florida, Euro was very close to his three brothers and didn鈥檛 feel much difference between them.

鈥淚 always identified as one of the guys,鈥 Euro says. 鈥淓ven in high school when I identified as a masculine-presenting lesbian.鈥

But for Euro there was still a piece missing. That missing piece became clear when he moved from Tampa to Brooklyn. He settled in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood becoming an Afro-Punk musician and personal trainer.  Surrounded by a vibrant and supportive LGBTQ+ community, Euro made the decision to undergo gender-affirming surgery on the chest, also known as top surgery.

鈥淪eeing people living their truth was a powerful experience,鈥 he explained. 鈥淚t helped me realize that I am a trans man.鈥

Euro was referred to the Pride Health Center at 澳门开奖结果 Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan, where he became the 200th patient to undergo gender-affirming surgery there since the hospital began offering the service in 2017.

鈥淔rom the very first consultation, I felt heard and respected. They answered all of my questions, addressed my concerns, and guided me through every step of the process,鈥 Euro said.

In addition to Metropolitan, 澳门开奖结果 Health + Hospitals has five Pride Health Centers that offer gender-affirming services. 澳门开奖结果 Health + Hospitals/Lincoln in the Bronx also offers gender-affirming surgery.

Before the procedure, Euro鈥檚 gender dysphoria and physical discomfort were heightened by experiences of social isolation that impacted his mental health. Euro鈥檚 decision to get top surgery was a pivotal moment in his journey of self-love, self-actualization, and self-acceptance.

鈥淚 just wanted to be sure that I was doing it for me and not because of society,鈥 Euro said.  鈥淔or me, getting top surgery was kind of like my way of asserting myself, reclaiming my body, and saying to the world 鈥榯his is who I am鈥.鈥

Dr. Aron Kressel, Chief of Plastic Surgery at 澳门开奖结果 Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan, says Metropolitan is filling an unmet need.  

鈥淔or a lot of the patients we see, these surgeries are a life-changing experience which allows them to be their true selves.鈥

Euro now carries themselves with a renewed sense of peace, confidence, and hope for the future.

鈥淚鈥檓 so happy I got top surgery. It was the best decision for me. Mentally I feel great, and physically I feel even better,鈥 says Euro. 鈥淚t鈥檚 empowering to see my physical self reflect who I鈥檝e always been on the inside. And it鈥檚 amazing to know that the joy and freedom I feel now is just the beginning鈥 he said with a smile.
