Sex Reassignment Surgery (Male to Female)

Sex reassignment surgery is a surgical procedure that transform the male genitals into the female genitals. After the surgery has healed completely, it is often difficult even for gynecologists to find out if a genital reassignment surgery has been undertaken.

Transgender women may also undergo several other surgeries such as breast augmentation and facial feminization surgeries to complete the process. Facial hair removal and hormone replacement therapy usually precede these surgeries.

During genital surgery, the testicles are removed and a vagionoplasty is performed. But note that transgender women cannot bear children or menstruate since they don't have ovaries or a uterus.

Voice feminization surgery may also be performed to alter the pitch and range of the voice. A tracheal shave may be recommended to reduce the size of the Adam's apple. Since a man's hips and buttocks are smaller than a female's, the patient may undergo a buttock augmentation.
