Sex reassignment surgery or Sex Change Surgery


Sex reassignment surgery or sex change surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can help patients to reach their goals to gain feminine looks and feel.

In this surgery, we can create an adequate vaginal pouch. This is also including sensate, hooded clitoris, and a feminine vulva with delicate labia.


There are some requirements for sex reassignment surgery as below…

1. Be of legal age in the patient's nation; In Thailand, the father/mother or legal custodian may give consent for patients
    under the age of 18.
2. 12 months of continuous hormonal therapy.
3. 12 months of successful continuous full time real-life experience.
4. No medical impediments.
5. Medical letters of recommendation required for SRS: one from mental health professional psychotherapist;
    the second letter should be from a psychiatrist or a Ph.D. clinical psychologist.

The goals of sex reassignment surgery

1. To create as normal female genitalia as possible.
2. To achieve adequate neo-vaginal depth.
3. To insure maximum orgasmic capabilities.
4. To minimize and hide scaring.

The principle of most Sex reassignment surgery procedures involved:

1. Orchiectomy and high ligation of the spermatic cord.
2. Penectomy and excision of corpuscavernosa of the penis
3. Use of corpus spongiosum and urethra to provide a urinary conduit.
4. Use of penile skin to form the labia minora and a part of neo-vagina wall.
5. Use of the scrotal skin to form the labia majora.

On the worldwide basis procedures vary with the tissue available to form the vagina and clitoris.

We offer:

1. Penile skin inversion is the most popular procedure for vaginal construction. The skin of the penis is inverted to
    create a vagina. The glans with its nerve supply is used to create the clitoris, thereby maintaining normal sexual
    sensation. The scrotal skin is used to form a full-thickness graft to give extra depth to the neo-vagina.
2. Split-thickness/full-thickness skin graft procedure is performed by some clinics and achieves patient satisfaction.
    Patient attests to its advantages when the procedure is performed with great attention to details. However, donor site
    scaring and the shrinkage associated with the skin graft procedure are obvious disadvantages.
3. The sigmoid colon vaginoplasty has been used for decades in Eastern Europe to treat vaginal atresia. Currently, the
    procedure is used in primary or secondary vaginoplasty. A section of the recto-sigmoid colon is used to form the
    neo-vagina. The colon serves as a self lubricating neo-vagina. Generally, the low transverse scar is made to
    resemble a hysterectomy scar.
