Sex reassignment surgery or gender reassignment surgery involves a number of procedures which transform the anatomical sex of people with gender dysphoria into that of the opposite gender. Those with gender dysphoria identify with a gender different from the one they were assigned at birth due to psychological, behavioral and genetic causes and the hormones they were exposed to before birth. In male to female sexual reassignment surgery the penis will be reshaped into a vagina, and prior to the surgery patients must have undergone hormone treatment for at least a year. At Junomedical we partner with the most experienced surgeons around the world. These specialists offer sex reassignment surgery at up to 80% less than the average cost in the UK, US and Australia.
Sex reassignment surgery is a highly specialized branch of medicine, therefore the cost of the treatment depends on the expertise of the surgeon, how many procedures are involved, the complexity of the surgeries and the number of appointments needed. After assessing your individual case the specialist can provide you with a personalized treatment plan and price quote. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of skilled surgeons, many of whom attained their medical qualifications from UK and US medical schools, have won awards, and are members of prestigious associations.
After having undergone hormone treatment for at least a year, patients with gender dysphoria may choose to have gender reassignment surgery. Patients who are changing their anatomical sex from male to female will have a vaginoplasty, in which the male genitals are transformed into a fully sensitive vagina. In the first part of the surgery the testicles are removed, then the penile skin, glans, blood vessels, nerves and urethra are separated from the penile shaft and the erectile tissue of the penis is removed as close to the body as possible. The blood supply and nerves of the glans or head of the penis are kept intact and it is transformed into a functional clitoris, and the urethra is shortened and positioned like it would be in a female. Finally the penis skin is turned inside out so that the outer skin becomes the inner lining of the vagina, which is inserted into the space between the bladder and the rectum. Incisions are then made to expose the urethra and the clitoris in their correct positions. Penile skin or scrotal tissue are used to form the labia. The body will treat the new vagina as a wound so following the surgery, in order to maintain its width and depth, it must be kept dilated using medical graduated dilators. A number of additional procedures may also be carried out as a part of the transitioning process, including breast implants, buttock augmentation, tracheal shave, voice feminization surgery and facial feminization surgery. Sutures are usually removed within 7 to 10 days after the surgery. The surgery is usually irreversible and not recommended for patients who have been diagnosed with HIV or hepatitis C.
