Sex Change Surgery

Some individuals suffer from Gender Dysphoria, which is a condition wherein individuals feel a mismatch between their biological sex and their gender identity. While the biological sex refers to an individual’s state of birth (either male or female), their gender identity is what they identify themselves as, or feel themselves to be. Adults with gender dysphoria feel like they are trapped in someone else’s body resulting in unhappiness, anxiety and discomfort.

While the exact causes of this condition have not been determined, recent studies suggest that gender dysphoria may result from changes in gender development due to hormonal differences.

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.

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.
