Sex Change Operation (Sex Change Surgery) At Bangkok Plastic Surgery

Sex change operation or also known as sex change surgery is a procedure that changes genital organs from one gender to another. It plays a critical part in a person’s transition from one gender to another. To accomplish these goals, many small steps are necessary that require time, patience, and expertise. Sex change operation is both cosmetic and reconstructive, so maximum attention to detail is necessary to achieve the best result. A great deal of experience is needed to be able to provide patients with the desired aesthetic appearance and functionality. And Dr. Pichet of Bangkok Plastic Surgery Clinic is among Thailand’s top surgeon who has expertise in Sex change operation field.


Sex change operation is done under general anesthesia and takes 5-6 hours of surgery. This procedure is always performed under general anaesthetic. There are 3 main stages of Sex change operation;

1. Elective Bilateral Orchiectomy (MTF)

It’s the operation for the removal of both testicles. After each testicle is pulled from the scrotum, its spermatic cord is clamped, double sutured to control bleeding, and cut, releasing the testicle. The end of the cord is then placed back in the body. Transitioning MTFs undergo orchiectomy because it significantly reduces testosterone production. The reduction of testosterone may allow a person with a male body to transition to a woman and to take less estrogen.

2. Tracheal Shave

It involves surgically reducing the tracheal cartilage (the Adam’s apple). A small incision is made at the front of the throat and the cartilage is carved until it is flat. This results in a throat contour that is flatter and more feminine in appearance.

3. Vaginoplasty

It’s the surgical construction of a vagina through skin inversion, involves removing the organs and erectile tissue of the penis. The skin and tissue is used to create a vaginal opening, clitoris, clitoral hood, and labia (lips). The urethra is kept for urination and the skin and nerves of the glans (head) of the penis can be salvaged for sensitivity.

Each patient is unique and the procedures that are done are based on the individual need and budget. Before the operation, preparation through education, information about the surgery, the choice of the right specialist, being sure about it yourself, etc. are necessary for a successful operation and satisfaction for everyone.
