What is Sexual Reassignment Surgery?

The lengthy and intricate psychological, personal, and medical process that a transgender subject goes through is challenging. Transsexuality has experienced many ups and downs throughout history. Originally accepted and standardized or thought of as an illness, it is now finally acknowledged as a real suffering but not a disease. In Saudi sexual reassignment surgery is the final phase in a multi-step therapy programme for gender dysphoria.

The goal of this group of plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures is to match the patient’s genitalia to their gender identity. After surgery, a transgender person’s anatomical shape and function of their existing sexual traits are altered to resemble those that are socially associated with the chosen sex. SRS is used to address gender dysphoria in transgender patients.



In Saudi Arabia, there are two forms of sexual reassignment surgery: MTF (male to female) and FTM (female to male). Although the pre- and post-care instructions are similar in both cases, the surgical methods vary. Below is a detailed discussion of both procedures:


The technique is quite complex and requires a high level of technical understanding on the part of the surgeon. It typically lasts 4 to 5 hours. It is often performed under general anesthesia, although the anesthesiologist may potentially opt to perform it with an epidural.

The procedure is broken up into two steps, the first of which entails the removal of the testicles and penis, and the second of which involves using the skin from the penis to construct the neovaginal chamber.

The foreskin is used to sculpt the labia minora, while the top half of the glans, which is a very sensitive region, is used to construct the clitoris.


It is an extremely intricate plastic surgery that takes between 8 and 9 hours to complete and demands a high level of technical expertise from the surgeon.

The urologist will initially rebuild the urethra using the labia minora. He will next construct a scrotum from the labia majora that resembles a biological male.

The forearm tissue must first undergo laser hair removal before the surgeon may use it for repair. This skin flap affords the internal canal, which is also utilized for urination, volume and protection. After this treatment, the forearm’s donor area will have a scar covering it and look slimmer.

These techniques produce amazing results. The vagina is very similar to that of a biological woman, and using autologous tissues enables you to experience pleasure during sexual activity. If the nerve connection and prosthetic insert are completed correctly as described, patients are quite delighted with the outcomes of their phalloplasty and the majority of them may confidently urinate standing up and enjoy penetrative intercourse.
