Gender Reassignment Surgery
Men and women who want to physically alter their bodies to be of the opposite gender can undergo gender reassignment procedures, also known as sex reassignment surgery. The transition to the opposite sex is typically a combination of surgery, hormonal therapy, and even counseling, as the individual assumes a completely new role in life and perspective. Dr. Marco A. Gonzalez understands this process is unique to each individual and surgery is only a part of the change. The surgical transition may include several procedures to feminize or masculinize the individual.
Gender Reassignment for Females
Examples of gender reassignment procedures for females include:
- Removal of breasts, ovaries, and uterus
- Closing the vagina
- Construction of a penis and scrotum
- Insertion of a penile implant
