Sex reassignment surgery





Definition

Also known as sex change or gender reassignment surgery, sex reassignment surgery is a procedure that changes genital organs from one gender to another.


Purpose

There are two main reasons to alter the genital organs from one sex to another.

  • Newborns with intersex deformities must early on be assigned to one sex or the other. These deformities represent intermediate stages between the primordial female genitals and the change into male genitals caused by male hormone stimulation.
  • Both men and women occasionally believe they are physically a different sex than they are mentally and emotionally. This dissonance is so profound that they are willing to be surgically altered.

In both cases, technical considerations favor successful conversion to a female rather than a male. Newborns with ambiguous organs will almost always be assigned to the female gender unless the penis is at least an inch long. Whatever their chromosomes, they are much more likely to be socially well adjusted as females, even if they cannot have children.


Demographics

Reliable statistics are extremely difficult to obtain. Many sexual reassignment procedures are conducted in private facilities that are not subject to reporting requirements. Sexual reassignment surgery is often conducted outside of the United States. The number of gender reassignment procedures conducted in the United States each year is estimated at between 100 and 500. The number worldwide is estimated to be two to five times larger.

Description

Converting male to female anatomy requires removal of the penis, reshaping genital tissue to appear more female, and constructing a vagina. A vagina can be successfully formed from a skin graft or an isolated loop of intestine. Following the surgery, female hormones (estrogen) will reshape the body's contours and stimulate the growth of satisfactory breasts.

Female to male surgery has achieved lesser success due to the difficulty of creating a functioning penis from the much smaller clitoral tissue available in the female genitals. Penis construction is not attempted less than a year after the preliminary surgery to remove the female organs. One study in Singapore found that a third of the persons would not undergo the surgery again. Nevertheless, they were all pleased with the change of sex. Besides the genital organs, the breasts need to be surgically altered for a more male appearance. This can be successfully accomplished.

The capacity to experience an orgasm, or at least "a reasonable degree of erogenous sensitivity," can be expected by almost all persons after gender reassignment surgery.


Diagnosis/Preparation

Gender identity is an extremely important characteristic for human beings. Assigning it must take place immediately after birth, for the mental health of both children and their parents. Changing sexual identity is among the most significant changes that a human can experience. It should therefore be undertaken with extreme care and caution. By the time most adults come to surgery, they have lived for many years with a dissonant identity. The average in one study was 29 years. Nevertheless, even then they may not be fully aware of the implications of becoming a member of the opposite gender.

In-depth psychological counseling should precede and follow any gender reassignment surgical procedure.

Sex change surgery is expensive. The cost for male to female reassignment is $7,000 to $24,000. The cost for female to male reassignment can exceed $50,000.


Aftercare

Social support, particularly from one's family, is important for readjustment as a member of the opposite gender. If surgical candidates are socially or emotionally unstable before the operation, over the age of 30, or have an unsuitable body build for the new gender, they tend not to fare well after gender reassignment surgery. However, in no case studied did the gender reassignment procedure diminish their ability to work.


Risks

All surgery carries the risks of infection, bleeding, and a need to return for repairs. Gender reassignment surgery is irreversible, so a candidate must have no doubts about accepting the results and outcome.


Normal results

Persons undergoing gender reassignment surgery can expect to acquire the external genitalia of a member of the opposite gender. Persons having male to female gender reassignment surgery retain a prostate. Individuals undergoing female to male gender reassignment surgery undergo a hysterectomy to remove the uterus and oophorectomy to remove their ovaries. Developing the habits and mannerisms characteristic of the patient's new gender requires many months or years.

To change male genitalia to female genitalia, an incision is made into the scrotum (A). The flap of skin is pulled back, and the testes are removed (B). The skin is stripped from the penis but left attached, and a shorter urethra is cut (C). All but a stump of the penis is removed (D). The excess skin is used to create the labia (external genitalia) and vagina (E). (Illustration by GGS Inc.)

Morbidity and mortality rates

The risks that are associated with any surgical procedure are present in gender reassignment surgery. These include infection, postoperative pain, and dissatisfaction with anticipated results. Accurate statistics are extremely difficult to find. Intraoperative death has not been reported.

The most common complication of male to female surgery is narrowing of the new vagina. This can be corrected by dilation or using a portion of colon to form a vagina.

A relatively common complication of female to male surgery is dysfunction of the penis. Implanting a penile prosthesis is technically difficult and does not have uniformly acceptable results.

Psychiatric care may be required for many years after sex-reassignment surgery.

The number of deaths in male-to-female transsexuals was five times the number expected, due to increased numbers of suicide and death from unknown cause.


Alternatives

There is no alternative to surgical reassignment to alter one's external genitalia. The majority of persons who experience gender disorder problems never surgically alter their appearance. They dress as members of the desired gender, rather than gender of birth. Many use creams or pills that contain hormones appropriate to the desired gender to alter their bodily appearance. Estrogens (female hormones) will stimulate breast development, widening of the hips, loss of facial hair and a slight increase in voice pitch. Androgens (male hormones) will stimulate the development of facial and chest hair and cause the voice to deepen. Most individuals who undergo gender reassignment surgery lead happy and productive lives.

WHO PERFORMS THE PROCEDURE AND WHERE IS IT PERFORMED?



Gender reassignment surgery is performed by surgeons with specialized training in urology, gynecology, or plastic and reconstructive surgery. The surgery is performed in a hospital setting, although many procedures are completed in privately owned clinics.

QUESTIONS TO ASK THE DOCTOR



  • What will my body look like afterward?
  • Is the surgeon board-certified in urology, gynecology, or plastic and reconstructive surgery?
  • How many gender reassignment procedures has the surgeon performed?
  • How many of the type similar to the one being contemplated (i.e., male to female or female to male) has the surgeon performed?
  • What is the surgeon's complication rate?

I note the assertion in your section above: "Newborns with intersex deformities must early on be assigned to one sex or the other."

WHY?

This is surely the biggest error you can make. Such assumptions have been made where the risk that the wrong gender is chosen and the individual in later life is left truly stuck in the wrong gender. The individual should be allowed from the very beginning to express which gender they identify with.

What is wrong with the individual directly affected by this situation having a choice in the matter? And for that matter, what is wrong in acknowledging by birth a third physical sex?

Making uninformed decisions on behalf of other people on such basic personal issues can only de described as a human rights violation.

Thank you.

Hi, I am 20 years old. Ever since I was about 3 or 4 I knew I wasnt like the other little girls, I felt like something was missing. When I turned 6 and 7 I realized I was trapped in the wrong body. I am interested in FTM and wanted to know what I would need to do to prepare my body for surgery so that I could have the best recovery after. and to those who arent living their lives because of this, keep your head up. ~Im Out~

I have a desire to be a Navy Seal.
I am also a Female. By law i CANNOT be a seal. Is this fair?
I was talking to my friend about it and she mentioned a sex change(jokingly)
But now that im thinking about it...It might be the only way.
I know that laws are changing but im not sure if the laws will change fast enough that i might
have a chance. Is this reasonable? does the navy accept gender changed individuals?
DOes anyone know any other way?
all help is accepted.

Sex reassignment surgery is about $1,000,000 if you must know you all. You'd have to be a millionaire in order to afford this surgery, without a doubt! The most famous person I know so far that has had this surgery with success is Wendy Carlos or "Walter". Carlos was originally a boy then turned into a female whenever he... I mean, she was born. Technically, this type of surgery isn't 100% accurate so y'all need ta know the facts: trying to change yourself "physically" is the most hardest thing rather than "emotionally" really. If I were you, avoid completing a costly meaning cash, at all times!

hello, I was wondering if, when you have a sex change operation to a boy, are you able to have an erection? And I'm bisexual and wondering if, if I have this operation that I may still "be" with my boyfriend.

My husband had the M2F surgery back in 2002. She had the surgery to remove the penis and testicles. She had it done in Bangkok, Thailand for $5000 which included the hospital stay and recovery in a motel across from the hospital. It cost $1200 for airfare but that is the only costs involved. The hospital care was "Excellent" and the nurses and doctor were extremely caring. I would recommend checking out some of the resources in Thailand as the US and Canada can run over $18,000 just for the hospital stay.
As far as the changes, my husband started taking hormones a year before surgery and developed breasts which are very large now. She also went through psychological counseling for a year previous to the surgery which is recommended.
NO insurance does not cover anything for this surgery and one day maybe they will as it is not the person's fault they were born that way.

Okay, some idiot on here said it would cst a million dollars, that's stupid. People asking the price, it says it in the article. As for age limits, I'm 15 years old and I had chest reconstruction surgery a little over a month ago. I'm satisfied with my results, I do have scars but I'm working on making them fade. The contour is great, I do have a dip in my right side, but I'm working out to build muscle there and even it out. I'm also currently pursuing a hysterectomy and oopherectomy, I've been gathering information for my arguement and have a doctors appointment in a week to talk about it. I have been on testosterone for about a year now, I wasn't able to get hormone blockers. After I turn 18 (because no doctor in the US will preform it on me) I plan on getting a matiodioplasty with urethral lengtheing and scrotal implants, the results for a phalloplasty are not what I want, a matoidioplasty will give be a natural, albiet small, penis, and the urethral lenghtening will allow me to urinate through it. Don't rely solely on this information, search around, there are some great alternatives. Oh, and some people were talking about getting a sex change so they could get a job, that's the most idiotic thing I've ever heard. If your sex and gender match then don't change your sex.

I spent a number of years working with Transgender Patients, and did most of the follow-up care after the initial surgery as I lived in the Los Angeles area, and almost all ofthe surgeries were done at Stanford (F to M) and in Trinidad, Colorado where most of the M to F surgical procedures were successfully accomplished..

To date, there still is no genuine set of rules that the patients and Doctors actually work by, and it is ashame because there are so many people that want the surgery, and they can search and search until they find a surgeon that will not require things such as Psychotherapy, initiation of Hormone Therapy (but no definite amount of time required with many M.D.'s).

Without the "basics" prior to initiation of Hormones and eventual surgery, all too frequently these patients are grossly dissatisfied with the results, even though they know that they did not follow Guidelines such as the Harry Benjamin Standards for Sex Reassignment Surgery, began at Stanford University.

There were a number of suicides, both pre and post-op, and this generally was when the patient did not follow Protocol. Some horribly self-mutilations happened, and sometimes I was the first one to see what mess the patient had made, and see if there was something that could be done to correct at least part of the Surgical Procedure that had been performed.

All in all, I do not recommend it as the results are almost less that the patient was hoping for, as the surgery is not "magic", and it does not cure all problems like some hope for, being a "Quick Fix". I am retired now, but worked with the Transgender Community for somewhere between 10-15 years, and had about 100+ patients that were Transgender- some pre-op, some post-op, and many just starting to learn about what will be happening to their bodies from the very beginning. Most couples (generally Gay) did not stay together post-op as what their partners were looking for had been surgically removed, or the results were far from satisfactory.

Hi,
i am a male, 17 years old, and no one knows that i want to become a female.
Im curious about the M-to-F surgery: first of all, throughout the surgery, is there any pain involved to the patient? (even before surgery?) and what complications can happen post-surgery? I want to be a normal female, not have an abnormally shaped vagina, or one that malfunctions. Also, during surgery, what is the condition of the patient?(are they sleeping, awake but numb, or what? and what is done to ensure the patient does not receive any pain?) Also, after surgery, how long does it take for the vagina to be prepared for intercourse, and will it hurt when the patient urinates? (or must they urinate using a bag/etc). Please explain to me these things in detail, for I am looking forward to getting this surgery done, and want to be completely aware of what i am going to undergo -- since i can not contact a doctor in real due to the fear of anyone finding out, i'd appreciate it greatly if you would help. Thank You! =)

Hello, I am really wanting to have a male to female change.
I am 21 now and I have always been a very feminine male and I have always wanted to be a girl, I haven't spoken to my parents about it though as they aren't the most supportive people in the world with this type of thing. I have however told my friends and most of them support me, a few think it's not right. Basically I wanted to know if there were any decent doctors in the UK would be best as I would rather not travel outside of the country to talk about it. I was wanting to know, when I go to the doctors will they tell anyone such as immediate family? As I am over the age of 18 I pressume not but would be best to know. I was also wondering the same as someone else on the comments, what is the state of the person going in for the surgery eg. awake, numb etc. I really want to talk more about it with someone as I try to act as manly as I can in front of people who don't know or those who think I am joking with them. I literally have no idea how to get things started or if I would be able to go in and tell a doctor because I am petrified of what people will think, I know that doctors have the whole non judgmental saying but in all fairness I have been judged by doctors before and it has made me scared to tell them anything personal about my health. If you could e-mail me more details about how I would start off the proccess that would be great also how much it would cost in GBP to have the surgery as I am working and I am guessing it may take me a little bit to save up for. Thank you in advance.

I was quite surprised when my daughter Techla married a bisexual man. She was a mere 20 years old, and I had been her comfort and support all through her teen years, when she chose what I thought was an obvious lesbian lifestyle. My only concern about her marriage to Stanislaus was the issue of fidelity: could she live with the possibility that her husband might have affairs with other men? But now, after two years of marriage, my daughter tells me that her husband is undergoing therapy, which he hopes will eventually lead to sex-reassignment surgery. Techla (prounounced Tek-la, by the way) is happy with Stanislaus's decision, and they both trust me and know that I will "be here all the way" for them.

But Doctors, please help me (and my children) to cope with the consequences. Stanislaus/Stacey will definitely lose his job, have to change his whole life, and probably move away. We live in Virginia, and if my son-in-law becomes my daughter-in-law, their marriage will immediately become null and void. In this state, they would never be allowed to adopt children. But most importantly, they just DON'T WANT to live far away from home. I will, of course, support (and if necessary, defend) them; but I can't bear the sacrifice of seeing them forced to pick up and move to a state with a more liberal atmosphere. I'm confused, befuddled, and most of all, SCARED. Can anybody out there off me comfort?

Hey, I'm a 16 year old girl, and I seriously want a FtM operation. I have thought about this for many years, and a lot of my friends support me, along with my little sister. I must know, is there any way to get the surgery for less but with good quality? What is the size of your penis after getting this operation, and does it function like a normal boy? Is there an age limit inthe United States for this operation?? Are there any surgeons or hospitals that are able to do this operation in or near the state of Ohio?
I'm too scared to tell my dad, because he really hates homosexuals and transgenders...How do I tell him? More importantly, how do I tell my best friend? I'm really scared to tell her because I'm worried that it will ruin our friendship.
Thanks for the information.

Hey.
I'm 17, almost 18. I have just a couple questions. One: I was born a female. But from day one I never felt like a girl. I wore boy clothes. Looked at other girls. First kiss was with a girl. Then in middle school I decided to liked girls, but hid it so my parents wouldn't abandon me. Then I came out freshman year. Then I thought I was transgender. But now I just don't even feel like a gender. I just feel like Damien. I only like girls. But I am not in anyway a gender. What does this mean? And question 2: I hate having breasts, an hourglass curve and having a high voice. But I'm not wanting a penis. Would I still have to undergo testosterone therapy?

Hello. I'm a 23 year old male. I have been dressing as a female for about two years now but only started that recent because I was self-conscious about what others thought until I went into a local restaurant and everyone there took me for a female. I've always had the inclination that I was born into the wrong gender and have been seeking out knowledge on Male to Female surgery like for instance the cost, area I can get it done, whether or not I would be able to get it on some kind of payment plan, and the approximate time of surgery and recovery time. Can you please help me before it is to late for me to get the surgery?

Hi I've wanted to be a man since I was six. I am currently 17. I was wondering where I should go if I wasn't satisfied with my penis size because it seems like I wont be at first and its very concerning. I've always been into girls but its been very hard trying to find someone because not all girls are into girls, so that makes my life rather depressing. I've thought it through over and over again and I'm entirely sure I want this done. There's just the issue of money and where I should get the surgery done plus where I should go to get anything fixed.

I am 20. I really wanted to become female when I was about 7. My mom dismissed it as being nonsense going through my mind. I tried to make myself forget about the feelings I was having and never talked about it because I was afraid of what people, especially my own family might think. When I had intercourse with a woman when I was 15, I really started to feel that the body I'm in does not feel right for me.

I've been on happy for such a long time and I can't take it any more. I live in Columbia, MO and was wondering if there are any doctors in the State of Missouri that perform gender reassignment surgery. Thank you.

Hi I'm Destiny I'm 16 and I've always wanted to get a sex change from female to male. Sadly my family is poor and we have no way to make the money. Everyday I feel trapped in this body and I can't stand it. Can someone please tell me ways to get the full change at a cheap cost? Also I need some help on how I will tell my parents about the decision I made.

I'm an FtM who identifies as gay. I'm worried that the hormones required, to physically alter me to my real gender, may cause me to become attracted to women. I'm quite happy being gay and mentally would be uncomfortable being sexually attracted to women. Is this a possibility?

Is there a part of FtM surgery that gives one an Adam's apple?

I am only thirteen but I really want a FTM surgery because since I was really little I always wanted to be a boy because l though it would be so much easier, and I grew up and I still feel this way and have even had dreams where i just went around being a guy, and if we played it right the cost wouldn't be a problem, but I am really reserved so it would be hard to tell my family this. Not only that, there are about thirty people related to me as aunts, uncles, cousins, and close family friends that would have to be told about this. Also about fifty people I am close to that I would interact with five days of the week that would be shocked by this. How should I tell them about what I want?

When I was about 17 I went a boy's camp and we ask to a "skit" I did not know what to do and one other teenager asked me dress up as a woman. I agreed putting a drees on, lipstick on on and make up on. I left the the dress for the rest of the night and I felt the the woman in me. The next morning when when I put men's clothes on I knew I was a woman trapped in a man's body. Ever since I know I am trapped in a woman's body and if I knew if I could had a sex change I would have it so people I know now would only know the real me. I wear woman's clothes and always a woman's nightie to bed. My mother accepts me as her daughter. I do not know if too old to have a sex change at 61 at 61.

I'm curious. My girlfriend and I have been dating for 5 months now but this is the second time her parents figured out were dating. They don't want me dating her because I am a girl. We used to talk about marriage and children and I feel like a sex change is the only way to be with her. But would we still be able to have children if I went through the change?
