SEX REASSIGNMENT SURGERY
MALE TO FEMALE
I’m a retired physician.
I worked actively for almost 40 years.
As I look back, I see all the progress that has been made in so many different aspects of medical care.
One very important and interesting one is the ability to reassign anatomically correct genitals to those individuals who feel they are trapped in the wrong body.
Another important aspect, to me personally, has to do with these anti-LGBT laws that are popping out in so many states. These laws are clearly discriminatory against a group of citizens who are a part of this country.
The included video is an animated video released by the European Society of Urology that demonstrated the surgical process.
It’s not for the faint of heart of those who are easily offended.
This is medicine.
This is actual surgery.
My intention is education for anyone who stops by this post.
Sex reassignment surgery for male-to-female involves reshaping the male genitals into a form with the appearance of, and, as far as possible, the function of female genitalia.
Prior to any surgeries, patients usually undergo hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and, depending on the age at which HRT begins, facial hair removal.
There are associated surgeries patients may elect to, including facial feminization surgery, breast augmentation, and various other procedures.
When changing anatomical sex from male to female, the testicles are removed, and the skin of foreskin and penis is usually inverted, as a flap preserving blood and nerve supplies (a technique pioneered by Sir Harold Gillies in 1951), to form a fully sensitive vagina (vaginoplasty).
A clitoris fully supplied with nerve endings (innervated) can be formed from part of the glans of the penis.
If the patient has been circumcised (removal of the foreskin), or if the surgeon’s technique uses more skin in the formation of the labia minora, the pubic hair follicles are removed from some of the scrotal tissue, which is then incorporated by the surgeon within the vagina.
Other scrotal tissue forms the labia majora.

No intention of taking credit.
