Have you been thinking about doing sex reassignment surgery, as part of a way to get more in touch with your own identity? We are happy you stumbled upon this article, because here are 5 things we believe you should know before doing your sex reassignment surgery, from possible complications and how to mediate them, to Bangkok sex change surgery prices.


Sex Reassignment Surgery is More than “Just” Surgery


Although the name of the procedure tends to focus solely on the surgical aspect, sex change surgery is not simply a surgery. For a lot of people who do not identify with their birth gender, sex change surgery is a step towards achieving internal identity and reconciling with oneself. As such, the surgical procedure has a much deeper meaning than any other average surgery. It has to do with self-identification, personal acceptance and social integration. This also justifies why the surgery needs to be performed by very capable and experienced hands, to ensure that the results match (or rather, exceed) the patient’ expectations and facilitate (rather than delay) his/her social integration and personal acceptance.

At Medical Departures, we understand that. When it comes to sex change surgery reviews, Bangkok hospitals and facilities have been positively acclaimed by patients due to their excellence in care. This is attributable to doctors’ abilities to understand patient needs and cater to them.



Not Everyone Can Undergo Sex Change


There are some basic requirements that need to be met by those who wish to undergo sex change surgery. Being healthy, having passed a mental examination, being of 18 years of age and having been on hormones for a specific period of time (for some hospitals, 1 year is the cutoff point) are only some of those requirements. Thus, it is advisable to contact your destination hospital in advance to find out more. At Medical Departures, we can help you get in touch with your chosen hospital or doctor for more information.


Complications Might Develop from the Procedure


Like any other surgical procedure, sex change surgery might come with complications. As a result, postoperative care is just as important as preoperative care. Events such as genitalia swelling, pain, inability to walk or difficulties with urination were the most reported in regards to sex change surgery. You would also need to give your body a few weeks to heal and be fully able to regain genital and arousal functions. On average, at Bangkok hospitals such as the Asia Cosmetic hospital, inpatient length of stay is estimated to be between 5 - 14 days.


The Success of your Procedure depends on the Clinic and Surgeon You Choose


Surgical technique, experience and expertise have a huge role to play in the success of all surgical procedures. And for sex reassignment surgery which is even more important, this importance is magnified. At Medical Departures, we connect you with a wide variety of experienced, expert and board-certified plastic surgeons who are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that your sex reassignment procedure is a success.


Bangkok Sex Change Surgery Prices are among the Cheapest on the Market


One important reason why Thailand is becoming such a popular hub for medical tourism is the fact that it offers competitive prices; and for sex reassignment surgery, it is no different. At several of our Medical Departures hospitals, patients are able to save huge amounts for their sex reassignment surgical procedures.


For instance, at Nida Skin & Cosmetic Surgery Centre , gender reassignment surgery costs AUD 11,231 (NZD 12,050) compared to AUD 18,869 (NZD 20,244) which is the estimated average. At the Asia Cosmetic Hospital, sex reassignment surgery cost (female - to - male) averages AUD 18,869 (NZD 20,244).
