Gender Reassignment Surgery (Male to Female)
If a boy feels emotionally like a girl, he may be having Gender Identity Disorder / Gender Dysphoria. In this condition, a male feels that he is a girl trapped in a male body. This transformation can be assisted successfully with Gender Affirmation Surgery, also called for Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS) or simply a sex change operation. Before these procedures, the candidate needs to be evaluated by our team consisting of psychologist, psychiatrist, endocrinologist, etc and has to fulfill all the medico-legal criteria.
This involves various surgical procedures to make you a complete female (externally). The various procedures are:
The breast size can be enhanced as per individual requirement giving an absolutely natural look. The result is rewarding giving natural-looking, perkier and good shape breasts leading to tremendous boost up in self-esteem and confidence.
Procedure: This is done with breast implants (silicone implants). The implants are very well accepted by the body with no side effects. Minimal to moderate enhancement may be achieved with fat grafting also, in which fat is harvested from your own body and is put into the breasts. A combination of the two can be achieved too.
Duration of Procedure: 2-3 hrs. You may go home on the same day or the next.
Anesthesia: General or Local with sedation
Recovery Time: 1 to 2 days
Sex reassignment surgery for M to F creates female sexual organs that look as natural as possible and that allow as much sexual arousal as possible.
Procedure: This involves the removal of the penile muscle and tissue, the testicles, and reshaping the external genitalia to appear like female genitalia. The vagina is made with penile skin inversion (our technique enables even a penile inversion flap to be moist and capacious) and/or ileal loop technique so that vagina is deep enough/moist to allow normal sexual intercourse.
Duration of Procedure: 5-7 hrs.
Anesthesia: General / Regional (Spinal + epidural)
Recovery Time: 7 to 10 days. You may need a hospital stay of 2 to 7 days as per need.
