‘Juno’ actress Ellen Page is now claiming that her first major transgender surgery has ‘transformed my life.’
Page, who now goes by the name ‘Elliott,’ recently underwent a ‘top’ surgery which removed all of her breast tissue as part of a larger change as she attempts to transition from female to male.
As The New York Post reports:
“The Umbrella Academy” star said the surgery, which removes breast tissue to produce a more masculine appearance, was life-changing.
“It has completely transformed my life,” he told Time magazine in a cover story.

Page said the surgery doesn’t define being trans, but provided him with freedom from the “total hell” that was puberty and allowed him to finally recognize himself when he looks in the mirror.
The “Juno” star revealed he was recovering from the surgery when he came out as transgender in December.
