What Is A Sex Change Surgery?
AKA Gender or Sex Reassignment and Gender Affirming surgery.
Adults who are suffering from gender dysphoria may opt for a sex change operation which permanently alters one’s sex to their desired gender identity. This surgical procedure enables a trans person to alter their physical appearance and the existing sexual characteristic into the one of their identified gender.
This procedure has become popular, so much so that many of the public and commercial health insurance plans in countries like Thailand and Brazil provide defined benefits covering such surgeries. The reassignment primarily includes Genital Reconstruction Surgery (MTF and FTM), Chest Reconstruction (FTM), Breast Augmentation (MTF) and Hysterectomy (FTM). Here MTF means Male to Female and FTM means Female to Male.
