Dr. Thomas Satterwhite

Thomas Satterwhite, MDThomas Satterwhite, M.D., a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, obtained his Bachelor’s Degree (Human Biology with Honors) and Medical Degree at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. He remained at Stanford Hospital to complete his residency in Plastic Surgery, a highly regarded training program. His expertise in facial surgery was further refined with the completion of a craniofacial fellowship in Miami, FL under the tutelage of Dr. S. Anthony Wolfe, a world-renowned craniofacial surgeon. During this fellowship, he was fortunate, grateful, and humbled by the opportunity to treat children and adults from all over the world with disfiguring and devastating facial anomalies and injuries. This allowed him to gain a true appreciation, a deep respect, and a keen eye for natural facial form, function, and aesthetics. Dr. Satterwhite’s expertise is in all aspects of gender confirmation surgery for transwomen:  facial feminizing surgery, body feminization, vaginoplasty, and breast augmentation.  For transmen, he performs top surgery and body masculinization procedures.  For all patients, he is well versed in providing the full spectrum of cosmetic procedures (surgical and non-surgical) for the face and body.

Dr. Satterwhite has extensively published and presented nationally and internationally in plastic, reconstructive, and aesthetic surgery. He has won multiple awards (including the highly competitive Plastic Surgery Foundation award through the American Society of Plastic Surgeons) for his research in plastic surgery and for his oral presentations at regional and national conferences.

Dr. Satterwhite has recently joined forces with Dr. Curtis Crane, and together their San Francisco practice is dedicated to providing excellent, personal, and comprehensive care to the world-wide transgender community and the LGBT community at large. Dr. Satterwhite has remained actively involved in the LGBT family, and he has been truly dedicated to serving the community. For close to 20 years, the San Francisco Bay Area has been the home for Dr. Satterwhite and his husband, Harald and their son, Alexander.
