Sex reassignment surgery or transgender surgery allows an individual to change sex. These procedures are aimed at individuals (men and women) whose gender conflicts with their biological sex. Given the strong psychological impact of these procedures, surgeons, psychiatrists, endocrinologists and psychologists come together to assess the patient. Engaging in a process of sex change represents a long journey, which involves a heavy treatment, which is not limited to the surgery alone.

Sex reassignment surgeries can be female-to-male or male-to-female. Male-to-female surgeries are more common. Although doctors will provide clear and detailed information on this issue, the typical conditions sought for a male to female sex reassignment surgery can be listed as follows,

How Does it Work?
What Does Sex Reassignment Surgery Treatment Involve?
1. Consultation for Sex Reassignment Surgery
The first step to start your sex reassignment surgery process will be the online consultation.
This stage is the head of everything that will allow us to understand whether you want to enter this process, whether you know the process more or less. As this is a big decision and long journey, in the sex reassignment surgery procedure, a more detailed process is followed instead of a short preliminary interview where we will understand each other. We inform you, get information from you and offer you options to choose the clinic we will invite you to continue your process face to face.
Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic
At this stage, we will share the list of the clinic and surgeon; which we filter according to the criteria we receive from you. After you make your selection among them, we proceed to the stage of date determination and detailed adjustments.
2. Final Consultation with Your Surgeon
When you arrive at the clinic, there will be a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon and the team involved in the process. This team, which is always with you to prepare you, eliminate or minimize possible risks, start your medication/hormone treatment, and prepare you perfectly for the process, both psychologically and physiologically, will also carry out the necessary official procedures.
3. Medical Examinations
Before the sex reassignment surgery process begins, your surgeon will conduct some necessary medical tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the procedure. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the surgery and if any risk detected surgeons try to eliminate them first.
What Are the Other Surgeries Involved in Sex Reassignment Surgery?
Other surgeries involved in the whole transgender process include vaginoplasty, feminizing augmentation mammoplasty, orchiectomy, facial feminization/masculinization surgery, and voice feminization/masculinization surgeries. Those are the surgeries that result in the change in anatomy an individual was born with.
When Do the Surgical Scars Heal?
Sex reassignment surgery scars will be with you for a long time, but over time you will notice that their appearance and color have changed and become invisible. Total scar healing can take up to 1 year.
How Long Should I Stay in The City Where My Sex Reassignment Surgery Is Performed?
Patients who come from abroad/out of the city should stay in the city for about 2 weeks after sex reassignment surgery and about 8-9 days following facial feminization/masculinization or breast augmentation surgeries.
