Gender reassignment Surgery

Gender reassignment surgery, sometimes called sex reassignment surgery, is implemented to transition individuals with gender dysphonia to their desired gender. People with gender dysphonia often feel that they were born in the wrong gender. A biological male may identify more as a female and vice versa. Surgical transition may include several processes. Males transitioning to females have their testicles and penis removed. The prostate gland may or may not be removed as well. Tissue from the penis is used to construct a vagina and clitoris. Labia – the “lips” adjoining the vagina - can be made from scrotal skin.
