Sex Change Operation or Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS) is a surgical procedure to transition individuals with gender dysphoria to their identified gender. The procedure can transition a person from Male to Female or Female to Male. Male to Female Sex Reassignment Surgery includes reshaping of male genitals to appear and function as female genitalia, hair removal therapy, facial feminization surgery, Breast Augmentation, and hormone replacement. Sex reassignment is a long procedure that requires patience and resilience. Patients must start hormone treatment a year prior to the surgery. Hormone treatment helps reshape the body contours and stimulate the growth of the labia majora. Many doctors also require that patients first talk to a psychologist because SRS patients have to be socially and emotionally stable to undergo the surgery.
The transition involves Penectomy (removal of the penis), Orchiectomy (removal of testes), Vaginoplasty (creation of a vagina), and Feminizing Genitoplasty (creation of female genitalia). Some of the more popular SRS techniques are SRS with Penile Skin Inversion, SRS with Scrotal Skin Graft, and SRS with Sigmoid Colon by Laparoscopic Technique. It is advisable to consult the doctor which technique is suitable for you because each one offers a different outcome.
During the surgery, patients are given a general anesthetic. The surgery normally takes 2.5 to 6 hours depending on the technique. In general, patients will need to stay in the hospital for four to seven days after the surgery. After being discharged, plan to stay for at least three more weeks in the Phang Nga. The recovery period can be long and painful. Most people can return to work in about four to six weeks but it is best to refrain from doing any strenuous work and exercise for about six to eight weeks and it is important to follow all medication instructions. The success rate for this procedure is 85%. However, always be aware of its complications, such as bleeding, severe pain, and possible risk of infection.
