Podcasts Featuring Dr. P. Daniel Knott
In this episode, Dr. Gopi Shah discusses the role of ENT in gender-affirming care with facial plastic surgeons Dr. Daniel Knott of UCSF and Dr. Rahul Seth of Golden State Plastic Surgery. This episode is the second half of a two-part series featuring Drs. Knott and Seth.
First, the surgeons emphasize the importance of understanding terms related to gender identity and using patients’ correct pronouns. Relative to the general population, transgender individuals face higher rates of poverty, unemployment, and serious mental illness, all of which shape their interaction with the healthcare system. Then, using California as a case study, doctors Knott and Seth discuss strategies that successfully increase access to gender-affirming care. The episode finishes by addressing how insurance coverage, clinical research, education and advocacy shape gender-affirming care.
In this episode, Dr. Gopi Shah discusses facial masculinization surgery with facial plastic surgeons Dr. P. Daniel Knott of UCSF and Dr. Rahul Seth of Golden State Plastic Surgery.
First, the surgeons begin by defining gender terminology, facial analysis, and surgical planning as they relate to gender-affirming care. Narrowing in on facial masculinization, they address common surgical procedures including augmentation rhinoplasty, buccal fat removal, reverse brow lifts, chin implants, and thyroid cartilage augmentation. Then, Dr. Knott and Dr. Seth describe the challenge of maintaining a natural appearance while enlarging facial features. In many cases, non-operative adjuncts, such as fillers and Botox, assist in this goal. Finally, Dr. Knott emphasizes the importance of management of the hair in gender-affirming care.
