Gender Reassignment Surgery (GRS)

Surgery to change sex or gender reassignment surgery (GRS) is gaining popularity with the increasing awareness of the various medical and cosmetic advancements made in body sculpting procedures. Essentially, GRS is an option sought by those who are dissatisfied with the lifestyle of a given sex and feel more comfortable and at ease living in the opposite sex. This is a medical condition known as ‘gender dysphoria.’

Physical reassignment is a single but primary step in the gender change process, including psycho-social adjustments such as mental therapy, hormone therapy, pelvic floor physiotherapy, and speech therapy.

At KLCC, we guide you through every nuance of your gender change process until you are mentally, physically, and socially ready to lead a new life as a man or a woman.

A GRS where a male’s genital is to be transformed into female genitalia is often referred to as Male-To-Female surgery.
During the male genital reassignment surgery, also known as penile inversion vaginoplasty, our surgeon uses parts of the original penis to create a neo-vagina that is as sensitive and active as natural vaginas.
Other than vaginoplasty, the entire male-to-female process also includes other bodily modifications to be made to the face, torse, and skin, such as:

  • Tracheal Shave
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Orchiectomy
  • Facial Feminization surgery
  • Voice Feminization surgery
A female-to-male surgery aims are reconstructing a vagina into a functional penis. Here the surgeon structures the vaginal parts to form an aesthetically accurate phallus and uses implants to create a urethra for standing urination. The entire procedure involves different individual surgeries, including:
  • Metoidioplasty
  • Vaginectomy
  • Hysterectomy
  • Phalloplasty
  • Scrotoplasty
These procedures are entirely customized to suit your distinct body and expectations. Our surgeon can guide you through the additional surgeries required, such as chest reconstruction, facial masculinization surgery, and hormone treatments for hair growth.
