TransOp Mexico

Sex Reassignment Surgery

TransOp Mexico is excited to add Sex Reassignment Surgery, also known as Gender Reassignment Surgery, to our portfolio of services focused on the needs of the trans community. Our goal is to make SRS/GRS accessible to more patients by making it more affordable and more available without long waiting lists. 

 Dr. Ivan Aguilar is TransOp’s SRS/GRS surgeon. Dr. Aguilar specializes in one-step construction by using the penile inversion and scrotal graft technique, a method he learned from Dr. Marci Bowers, one of the most well-known SRS/GRS surgeons in the world. The expected duration of this procedure is around four hours and is performed under general anesthesia.

In addition, Dr. Aguilar performs an alternate method referred to as Sigmoid Colon SRS. Limited-depth and nullification options are also available for patients not seeking full SRS.

Sex Reassignment Options:

  • Penile inversion
  • Cosmetic SRS (Limited-Depth SRS)
  • Sigmoid Colon SRS
  • Nullification (Male-to-Nullo)

Penile inversion surgery, also known as vaginoplasty, is a gender-affirming surgical procedure performed on transgender women or individuals assigned male at birth who wish to undergo gender confirmation surgery. The goal of this surgery is to create a neovagina that is anatomically and functionally similar to a cisgender woman’s vagina.

We also offer a more conservative surgical approach than the standard   SRS   which is called   “Cosmetic SRS” or a “Limited-Depth SRS”.   The operation time of the cosmetic SRS is shorter than standard SRS, it has faster recovery time and the vaginal dilation is no longer required.

Prospective SRS patients who do not wish to have a functional vagina for the use of sexual penetration, the cosmetic SRS should be taken in consideration.

Cosmetic SRS consists of elimination of male genitalia, penis shaft and testes, creation of all external female genital structures which are clitoris, clitoral hood, labia majora and minora, and urethral and vaginal opening. The vaginal opening of up to 1.5 – 2 inches deep is needed to maintain the natural look of female genitalia and make an illusion that it has a vaginal canal.

Sensitivity and orgasm are achievable with cosmetic SRS as the nerves responsible for sensation are carefully preserved during the surgery. Colon technique or skin graft can be used, should the patient decide to create vaginal canal at a later time.

The ideal reconstructive procedure should provide a vagina that has an appropriate length and that requires minimal, if any, dilatation. It should not scar, stenose or contract and should provide a satisfactory cosmetic result. Reconstructing the vagina using intestinal segments creates an aesthetically pleasing vagina, which seems to be more compatible with sexual activity.

After penile inversion skin flap, sigmoid colon technique presents the method of choice in transsexual surgery. Advantages of this procedure include adequate vaginal length, natural lubrication, early intercourse and a low rate of shrinkage. Sigmoid colon is particularly useful because it is anatomically similar to the perineum, with sufficient length and mobility of the segment that allows it to be easily brought into the perineum.

The neovagina will be packed for 7 days, and an indwelling Foley catheter will be left in place for 4 days. At discharge from hospital, patients are instructed to irrigate the neovagina once a day for 2 months and weekly thereafter, and to dilate the introitus of the neovagina on a daily basis with a vaginal dilator.

Dr. Aguilar   is the only surgeon in Latin America who offers   Nullification surgery , also well known as   Male-to-Nullo.

Many   Gender Non-Binary   patients opt for this more conservative surgical approach than the standard SRS. This surgery is focused on providing no sexual internal and external genitalia, giving the patient an external appearance of no penis or vagina.

What makes   Nullification SRS  different from the standard SRS in the case of   Male-to-Nullo , is that it does not include the creation of a vaginal canal so there will be no functional depth for penile penetration, includes the testis removal and the highly reconstructive procedure to reroute the urethra.

For those patients seeking to preserve sensitivity and an ability to orgasm, we can preserve the part of the glans, embedded under the skin surface.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Clitoral hood & clitoris.

Dr. Aguilar do not depend on the inversion of the penile skin totally, the scrotal skin, will be remodeled and will create a natural shape of vaginal opening in vertical orientation for the best realistic look and function, this scrotal graft will provide a 6 to 8 inches depth vagina, allowing Dr. Aguilar to use part of the penile skin for the creation of the labia. The vaginal opening can also expand appropriately to accommodate pleasurable sexual intercourse and vaginal dilators in varied sizes.

The process of skin graft technique is delicate as the donor skin from scrotum and groin will be converted to be the intermediate thickness of skin graft which means the superficial part of dermal layer is preserved to maintain skin durability.

To ensure that the skin graft will be 100% hairless, the hair follicles of the scrotal skin will be cauterized, so if the patient did not got a proper laser hair treatment or Hydrolysis, Dr. Aguilar will take care of the hair follicles during the surgery.

Self-lubrication can be also expected by preservation of specific secretory glands around the urethral & vaginal opening, but Dr. Aguilar recommends lubricant for intercourse, for less vaginal discomfort.

Vaginal canal

 We also offers a more conservative surgical approach than the standard   SRS   which is called   “Cosmetic SRS” or a “Limited-Depth SRS”.   The operation time of the cosmetic SRS is shorter than standard SRS, it has faster recovery time and the vaginal dilation is no longer required.

The urethral orifice is set above the vaginal opening at the correct anatomical position to allow female pattern of urine flow, being Dr. Aguilar a reconstructive urologist, the urethra reconstruction is guarantee it won’t close, major complication seeing in plastic surgeons urethroplasty.

All spongiosum muscles around urethra are completely removed to prevent tissue engorgement during sexual arousal which can narrow the vaginal opening, create the sensation of cystocele or cause difficulty during sexual intercourse.

Post-operative care

Our highly qualified surgical nurses will assist you after the operation, they will be with you 24/7 in the hospital at your bedside, after you are discharged they will come to visit your daily at the hotel and they will do their best to provide all necessary after care for you, it is our policy to provide only well-trained and specialized surgical nurses who know all the details of your surgery to closely monitor and take care of you during your recovery.

Upon discharge, we will provide you with all necessary oral medications including the detailed instruction on how to take the medications correctly, post-surgical garment to retain the vaginal package (Special Diaper), SRS certificates containing the original handwritten signatures of Dr. Aguilar and   Letter of Postoperative Care Management.

For Penile Inversion SRS you will be required to purchase a set of dilators:

Sensitivity & orgasm

Sensitivity and orgasm are well achievable with all types of SRS as the nerves responsible for sensation are carefully preserved during the surgery. 

Are complications common?

Like with any surgical intervention,   complications do happen but they are rather rare. Mainly, complications are related to vaginal canal, that may lose depth or even close up, if dilating regimen is not closely followed or done improperly. We have performed hundreds of SRS surgeries to date and are only aware of   2 patients who lost depth due to failure to dilate. Rectal injury is also a possible risk with certain patients. In over 10 years of practice, we only had one (1)  such case.

Remember, after you leave hospital, it is your sole responsibility to closely stick to dilation regimen, to avoid closure of vaginal canal.

Note that none of these risks are present for cosmetic SRS, which does not involve creation of a vaginal canal or any dilating at all.   More and more of our patients choose cosmetic SRS.

Can I have a private online consultation with the surgeons?

Yes, absolutely!   Our doctors are available for private consultations   via WhatsApp  (up to 30 minutes per patient, Please see schedule and instructions on how to join).

IMPORTANT:   All patients will also have a private consultation with our doctors   one day before surgery.

Is medical tourism insurance required?

es, gender reassignment surgery is a serious procedure that potentially carries certain risks, especially for older patients or patients with special health conditions. To protect our patients from unexpected expenses in an event of unexpected complications, while they are undergoing medical treatment in Mexico, all patients are required to purchase travel health insurance:

Purchase Novamar Medical Tourism Insurance Policy

Do I need a letter from my therapist?

Yes. Just like any other SRS surgery hospital, we are no exception.

In some cases we can help obtain the letter while you are already in Mexico, for patients coming from countries where obtaining such letter can be difficult.

A Transition in Care for Transgender Patients

Los Angeles LGBT Center

An examination room is seen inside the Trans Wellness Center, which opened in April in Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES—A contrast to the colorful "#JustBe" banners that have triumphantly adorned LGBT-popular West Hollywood, California, during Pride and Trans Pride festivities lives in a questionable corner of the web on transgendersurgeries.com .

"We want to help you become, who you really are," the site says, elsewhere detailing the surgical steps that will be taken for male-to-female clients seeking sex reassignment surgery from a "team of specialist doctors" in Mexico . "Aquier (sic) breasts you have dreamed of being the all natural you!"

A separate listing from GRS Mexico on a site run by PlacidWay – a medical tourism company based in Colorado – offers Guadalajara-based sex reassignment surgery at a steal: $10,000, well below the roughly $50,000 price tag in a U.S.-based clinic.

"My experience was great. They had a nurse check on me to make sure I was okay," a "tyra b" says in another listing on the site, underneath a five-star rating of a GRS Mexico procedure.

Fla. Housing Troubles Hit Transgender Residents

Noreen Marcus April 11, 2018

But Dr. Maurice Garcia, director of the new Cedars-Sinai Transgender Surgery and Health Program in Los Angeles – a less-than-1-year-old program catering to the health needs of the trans community – offers a drastically different take on what can happen in such south-of-the-border facilities.

"I've taken care of these botched jobs. It's torture for the patients," he says. "These foreign providers, they can do anything without oversight. A lot of those doctors haven't been trained. You can't just walk in and say, 'Change my genitalia!' You need endocrinologists, psychologists, gynecologists, surgeons," he adds, continuing through a long list of medical specializations.

Initially slow to develop, transgender health care has become more available in recent years in medically progressive California , where providers like Garcia are hoping to make patient trips to Mexico a thing of the past.

That increased availability was made possible in part by former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, and the state's expansion of its Medicaid program under the law.

While California has a similar mandate for insurance plans, the act's Section 1557 – along with a subsequent rule issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – also broadly rendered discrimination in health care based on gender identity illegal under federal law. A federal judge's injunction in late 2016 bars HHS from enforcing its protection, though Luc Athayde-Rizzaro, policy counsel at the National Center For Transgender Equality, notes "the injunction does not change the law or how it is enforced in courts."

Still, fears of a wholesale rollback of the rule by President Donald Trump's administration have sparked concern among advocates, who worry an overhaul would have a damaging impact in the U.S.

"There's a very real threat that there will be a direct assault on the LGBT community. Rescinding 1557 by the Trump administration would be a disservice to providers who understand their responsibility to implement the law for all communities in effective ways," says Jocelyn Samuels, executive director of the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law . Samuels served under Obama as director of the Office for Civil Rights at the Department of Health and Human Services, where she led the development of Section 1557's discrimination-barring regulations.

"We thought (the change) was going to happen in July," she says.

The judicial system and potential moves at the federal level aside, transgender health care is still very much a developing field. Yet many health care providers in California are trying to pre-empt a patient's desire to travel down south by providing better care and educational resources for the trans community.

"Way back in the day – 30 years ago, when I came out and started my transition – that was the in thing," says Chandi Moore, a transgender woman and HIV educator at Children's Hospital Los Angeles . "That was all we had – to go down there, black-market hormones. We didn't have anything else."

Even as of late last year, Cedars-Sinai was one of just two academic medical centers in the western U.S. to offer genital surgery for sex reassignment. "Europe is definitely ahead of us," he says. "And in Canada and South America, it's not very advanced."

But Cameron Varney, program coordinator for health services at the Trans Wellness Center in Los Angeles, notes Obamacare's impact on the Medi-Cal program cast a broader net for those seeking the surgeries and treatments needed for trans patients to transition. He adds that multiple private insurance companies participating in the Covered California marketplace under Obamacare also serve the trans community, including Kaiser Permanente and Blue Shield of California.

"A lot of folks, even if they were under the income limit for Medi-Cal, couldn't get Medi-Cal," Varney says. His center, which opened in April, is a partnership between community groups that receives funding from the Los Angeles County Department of Health, and aims to provide services such as hormone therapy and HIV testing. "Now it's opened it up, and it's just incredible to see."

Nationally, a study published earlier this year found that the share of patients seeking gender-affirming surgeries who paid for those procedures themselves fell from roughly 66 percent in 2006-2011 to 39 percent in 2014, with study authors concluding that "an increasing number of these individuals are covered by Medicare or Medicaid or private insurance." A ban on Medicare coverage for sex reassignment surgeries was lifted in 2014.

The Courage to Be Seen: Trans Women in South Florida

gender reassignment surgery cost in mexico

Obamacare has been "an astonishing help for marginalized communities. We are a federally qualified health clinic now,” says Nikki "Tita Aida" Calma, associate director of HIV prevention and health promotion at the San Francisco Community Health Center. A driving force in transgender health in the Bay Area, Calma came up with a generation of trans activists who made their mark in the 1990s. "There was no health care before. Doctors were scared to touch or even see patients who were trans-identified."

According to Calma, California has become a magnet for transgender people from across the country because of its generous coverages and medical know-how.

"When I ask them, 'So why did you move to San Francisco?' they say, 'You know, because I'm going to be accepted here, but also, I feel that I can get everything I need here,'" Calma says. "You can feel the desperation in their voices. Most folks are from small towns that don't have a very robust health care system already, and their families have abandoned them."

When new-to-the-city folks arrive in San Francisco , Calma says they also are "usually stressed, because no one told them that it was expensive to live here. They end up in shelters."

Notably, San Francisco residents with certain insurance or safety-net coverage can obtain surgery referrals through the San Francisco Department of Public Health, but must meet requirements such as being "engaged" with a primary care provider for a full year and having at least one mental health assessment performed.

The confluence of better-quality health care with the recent spotlight on transgender individuals such as Caitlyn Jenner and actress Laverne Cox is also having an influential impact on transgender youth, raising questions about the age-appropriate timing of a medically aided gender transition.

Training Docs on Transgender Surgeries

Kathy Rumer Aug. 6, 2018

Surgeons working in operating room.

"There's the debate of, how young is too young?" Varney says. "Trans youth are more and more sophisticated nowadays. They have access to the internet. They know the terminology. They are much more up to speed on what they want.

"But then, the kids know themselves so well that that they're young enough to be committing self-harm if they don't get the services," he adds.

Scroll YouTube for videos made by trans youth, and many aren't just avidly discussing their transitions, but with the magic of video editing, they can also actively transition before a viewer's eyes.

In a sampling, New Mexico 's Stacy Fatemi takes her audience into the doctor's office to be a fly on the wall during post-vaginoplasty visits. Gabriel Resendez, a female-to-male patient in New York , reports on the issues he's had with insurance, and proudly demonstrates his three years on testosterone by growing a beard in a time-lapse video .

Another video titled "Why I Transitioned/Detransitioned !!" shows a different side of the issue, with user FrankView discussing why, after time spent living as a female, being biologically male was his preferred option.

"I realized that I didn't need to completely change my gender, change my identity, change my biology, get however many surgeries I was going to need to get," FrankView says. “Personally, I do feel like I’m probably just somewhere in the middle in the gender spectrum. Like, I don’t feel necessarily really masculine or really feminine. I feel kind of like a good mix."

"You hardly ever hear detransition stories. And when someone talks about it they are shouted down as transphobic. Thanks for this," one viewer writes.

Moore suggests the most critical services for these youth are educational. She runs counseling groups for transgender people 24 and under at the Trans Wellness Center and at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

Of the youth she counsels, Moore says about 50 percent "are comfortable the way they are," meaning that only half want either surgery or hormones or both. And she says those who do want to transition "tend to come with a lot of unrealistic views on how their life is going to be."

"They think that all those temporary fixes" – such as facial nips and tucks – "are going to make their lives be stupendous," she says. "And it's my job to help them continue to see the vision that they see for themselves, but to add that reality, to knock them down a few notches."

Regarding surgery itself, Moore adds, "I always ask them to think hard about whether or not they really want to do that, because there's already women on the planet that have vaginas. Do you think that by you having one (it's) going to make your life any easier? That's always my question. Because some of these women with vaginas are already having a hard time."

Despite the ardor of some trans youth for moving ahead with reassignment surgery or hormone treatments, many adults – whether reliant on Medicaid, private insurance or another type of coverage – have found that carriers have dictated their decisions. A report on 2015 survey results by the National Center for Transgender Equality showed that 55 percent of transgender patients who had sought transition-related surgery had been denied coverage in the past year, while 1 in 4 seeking coverage for hormones were denied. (The survey was taken before HHS issued its Section 1557 rule encompassing gender identity.)

"Places in Mexico are for the desperate or uninformed, for people who are from states that have no coverage or if they have crummy insurance and they're willing to pay cash," says Cedars-Sinai's Garcia.

Isolated and Left Behind

Indeed, insurance coverage for the trans community remains a politicized issue across much of the country . "If you're in a red state, good luck to you," Varney says. "It's definitely a challenge for folks to even just get their hormones without a lapse sometimes."

Garcia adds that transitioning often encompasses issues of race and class, as well. "We don't want a two-tiered system," he says, mindful that such a system could drive trans patients to clinics like the ones in Mexico. Moore says roughly 20 to 30 percent of trans people she works with still make visits to such facilities. Often, they're male-to-female clients seeking breast implants.

But even for transgender patients on Medi-Cal, it can sometimes feel like they're living on the edge, wary of future insurance rollbacks.

"The Trump administration and the GOP want to just completely get rid of the ACA. So that's the real struggle, and we're just waiting with bated breath about the next shoe to drop about that," Varney says. "Really, we're not sure how many companies are going to sign on to participate in the (Obamacare) marketplace next year."

Calma adds that clients even worry when their surgery dates are postponed.

"They get a little nervous. 'Is this because of Trump, or something like that?' He causes panic to a lot of folks," she says.

"I mean, the city really comes together when it comes to things like that," she continues. "But are we strong enough? You know, that's the question. Are we loud enough? Are we united enough?"

Mexico Transgender Center

Orchiectomy & Nullification

Mexico Transgender Center

Orchiectomy (bilateral)

Sometimes, it is difficult or impossible to take feminizing hormones. An endocrinologist may recommend an orchiectomy, which involves removal of the testicles, to considerably reduce the production of testosterone.

An orchiectomy prior to vaginoplasty does not compromise the results of the latter. However, because the scrotal skin may retract (shrink) after an orchiectomy, a skin graft may be necessary for the construction of the vaginal cavity. If you plan to have vaginoplasty surgery, it is recommended that you do stretching exercises with the skin of your scrotum to prevent it from retracting (shrinking) after your orchiectomy.

Orchiectomy vs. Scrotectomy

During an orchiectomy, the surgeon will remove one or both testicles from the scrotum. During a scrotectomy, the surgeon will remove the entire scrotum or a portion of it.

If your transition will eventually include a vaginoplasty, the scrotal tissue may be used to create the vaginal lining. A vaginoplasty is the construction of a vagina using skin grafts. In these cases, a scrotectomy may not be recommended.

If there’s no scrotal tissue available for a vaginoplasty, the next option for constructing the vaginal tissue can often include skin grafts from the upper thigh.

It’s a good idea to talk to your doctor about all of your options. Be open with them about future surgeries you may plan to have. Before the procedure, talk to your doctor about fertility preservation and impact to sexual functioning.

Nullification (male-to-nullo).

Dr. Aguilar is the only surgeon in Latin America who offers Nullification surgery , also well known as Male-to-Nullo.

Many Gender Non-Binary patients opt for this more conservative surgical approach than the standard SRS. This surgery is focused on providing no sexual internal and external genitalia, giving the patient an external appearance of no penis or vagina. What makes Nullification SRS  different from the standard SRS in the case of Male-to-Nullo , is that it does not include the creation of a vaginal canal so there will be no functional depth for penile penetration, includes the testis removal and the highly reconstructive procedure to reroute the urethra.

For those patients seeking to preserve sensitivity and an ability to orgasm, we can preserve the part of the glans, embedded under the skin surface.

Gender Confirmation Surgery (GCS)

What is Gender Confirmation Surgery?

  • Transfeminine Tr

Transmasculine Transition

  • Traveling Abroad

Choosing a Surgeon

Gender confirmation surgery (GCS), known clinically as genitoplasty, are procedures that surgically confirm a person's gender by altering the genitalia and other physical features to align with their desired physical characteristics. Gender confirmation surgeries are also called gender affirmation procedures. These are both respectful terms.

Gender dysphoria , an experience of misalignment between gender and sex, is becoming more widely diagnosed.  People diagnosed with gender dysphoria are often referred to as "transgender," though one does not necessarily need to experience gender dysphoria to be a member of the transgender community. It is important to note there is controversy around the gender dysphoria diagnosis. Many disapprove of it, noting that the diagnosis suggests that being transgender is an illness.

Ellen Lindner / Verywell

Transfeminine Transition

Transfeminine is a term inclusive of trans women and non-binary trans people assigned male at birth.

Gender confirmation procedures that a transfeminine person may undergo include:

  • Penectomy is the surgical removal of external male genitalia.
  • Orchiectomy is the surgical removal of the testes.
  • Vaginoplasty is the surgical creation of a vagina.
  • Feminizing genitoplasty creates internal female genitalia.
  • Breast implants create breasts.
  • Gluteoplasty increases buttock volume.
  • Chondrolaryngoplasty is a procedure on the throat that can minimize the appearance of Adam's apple .

Feminizing hormones are commonly used for at least 12 months prior to breast augmentation to maximize breast growth and achieve a better surgical outcome. They are also often used for approximately 12 months prior to feminizing genital surgeries.

Facial feminization surgery (FFS) is often done to soften the lines of the face. FFS can include softening the brow line, rhinoplasty (nose job), smoothing the jaw and forehead, and altering the cheekbones. Each person is unique and the procedures that are done are based on the individual's need and budget,

Transmasculine is a term inclusive of trans men and non-binary trans people assigned female at birth.

Gender confirmation procedures that a transmasculine person may undergo include:

  • Masculinizing genitoplasty is the surgical creation of external genitalia. This procedure uses the tissue of the labia to create a penis.
  • Phalloplasty is the surgical construction of a penis using a skin graft from the forearm, thigh, or upper back.
  • Metoidioplasty is the creation of a penis from the hormonally enlarged clitoris.
  • Scrotoplasty is the creation of a scrotum.

Procedures that change the genitalia are performed with other procedures, which may be extensive.

The change to a masculine appearance may also include hormone therapy with testosterone, a mastectomy (surgical removal of the breasts), hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus), and perhaps additional cosmetic procedures intended to masculinize the appearance.

Paying For Gender Confirmation Surgery

Medicare and some health insurance providers in the United States may cover a portion of the cost of gender confirmation surgery.

It is unlawful to discriminate or withhold healthcare based on sex or gender. However, many plans do have exclusions.

For most transgender individuals, the burden of financing the procedure(s) is the main difficulty in obtaining treatment. The cost of transitioning can often exceed $100,000 in the United States, depending upon the procedures needed.

A typical genitoplasty alone averages about $18,000. Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, averaged $5,409 in 2019.  

Traveling Abroad for GCS

Some patients seek gender confirmation surgery overseas, as the procedures can be less expensive in some other countries. It is important to remember that traveling to a foreign country for surgery, also known as surgery tourism, can be very risky.

Regardless of where the surgery will be performed, it is essential that your surgeon is skilled in the procedure being performed and that your surgery will be performed in a reputable facility that offers high-quality care.

When choosing a surgeon , it is important to do your research, whether the surgery is performed in the U.S. or elsewhere. Talk to people who have already had the procedure and ask about their experience and their surgeon.

Before and after photos don't tell the whole story, and can easily be altered, so consider asking for a patient reference with whom you can speak.

It is important to remember that surgeons have specialties and to stick with your surgeon's specialty. For example, you may choose to have one surgeon perform a genitoplasty, but another to perform facial surgeries. This may result in more expenses, but it can result in a better outcome.

A Word From Verywell

Gender confirmation surgery is very complex, and the procedures that one person needs to achieve their desired result can be very different from what another person wants.

Each individual's goals for their appearance will be different. For example, one individual may feel strongly that breast implants are essential to having a desirable and feminine appearance, while a different person may not feel that breast size is a concern. A personalized approach is essential to satisfaction because personal appearance is so highly individualized.

Gender-affirming care encompasses a broad range of psychological, behavioral and medical treatments for transgender, nonbinary and gender-nonconforming people.

The care is designed to “support and affirm an individual’s gender identity” when it is at odds with the sex they were assigned at birth, as defined by the World Health Organization.

What is gender-affirming surgery?

Gender-affirming surgery refers to the surgical and cosmetic procedures that give transgender and nonbinary people “the physical appearance and functional abilities of the gender they know themselves to be,” according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. It is sometimes called gender reassignment surgery.

There are three main types of gender-affirming surgeries, per the Cleveland Clinic:

Top surgery , in which a surgeon either removes a person’s breast tissue for a more traditionally masculine appearance or shapes a person’s breast tissue for a more traditionally feminine appearance. 

Bottom surgery , or the reconstruction of the genitals to better align with a person’s gender identity.

Facial feminization or masculinization surgery , in which the bones and soft tissue of a person’s face are transformed for either a more traditionally masculine or feminine appearance.   

Some people who undergo gender-affirming surgeries also use specific hormone therapies. A trans woman or nonbinary person on feminizing hormone therapy, for example, takes estrogen that’s paired with a substance that blocks testosterone. And a trans man or nonbinary person on masculinizing hormone therapy takes testosterone.

Gender-affirming surgeries and treatments are the recommended course of treatment for gender dysphoria by the American Medical Association. Gender dysphoria is defined as “clinically significant distress or impairment related to gender incongruence, which may include desire to change primary and/or secondary sex characteristics,” according to the American Psychiatric Association.

Some LGBTQ+ advocates and medical professionals feel that gender dysphoria shouldn't be treated as a mental disorder, and worry that gender dysphoria’s inclusion in the DSM-5 — the authoritative source on recognized mental health disorders for the psychiatric industry — stigmatizes trans and nonbinary people.

How much does gender-affirming surgery cost?

Gender-affirming surgery can cost between $6,900 and $63,400 depending on the precise procedure, according to a 2022 study published in The Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics.

Out-of-pocket costs can vary dramatically, though, depending on whether you have insurance and whether your insurance company covers gender-affirming surgeries.

There are also costs associated with the surgery that may not be represented in these estimates. Additional costs may include:

Surgeons fees

Hospital fees

Consultation fees

Insurance copays

The cost of psychiatric care or therapy, as most insurance companies and surgeons require at least one referral letter prior to the surgery. An hour of therapy can cost between $65 and $250, according to Good Therapy, an online platform for therapists and counselors. 

Time off work. After bottom surgery, you can expect to miss six weeks of work while recovering. Most people miss around two weeks of work after top surgery. 

Miscellaneous goods that’ll help you recover. For example, after bottom surgery, you might need to invest in a shower stool, waterproof bed sheets, cheap underwear and sanitary towels. Top surgery patients may need, depending on the procedure, a mastectomy pillow, chest binder and baggy clothes.

Is gender-affirming surgery covered by insurance?

It’s illegal for any federally funded health insurance program to deny coverage on the basis of gender identity, sexual orientation or sexual characteristics, per Section 1557, a section of the Affordable Care Act. Section 1557 doesn’t apply to private insurance companies, though, and several U.S. states have passed laws banning gender-affirming care.

The following states have banned gender-affirming surgery for people under 18 years old, according to the Human Rights Campaign: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia. In four of these states — Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Indiana — court injunctions are currently ensuring access to care.

And these states have either passed laws — or have governors who issued executive orders — protecting access to gender-affirming surgery, according to the Movement Advancement Project, a public policy nonprofit: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Vermont and Washington, D.C.

But even if your state has enshrined protections for gender-affirming care, some private insurance companies may consider surgeries “cosmetic” and therefore “not medically necessary,” according to the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund. If you have private insurance or are insured through your employer, contact your insurance company and see if they cover gender-affirming care. Also, ask about any documentation the insurance company requires for coverage.

The Williams Institute estimates that 14% of trans Americans currently enrolled in Medicaid live in states where such coverage is banned, while another 27% of trans Americans live in states where coverage is “uncertain,” because their state laws are “silent or unclear on coverage for gender-affirming care.”

Because of Section 1557, Medicaid is federally banned from denying coverage on the basis of sex or gender; among the roughly 1.3 million transgender Americans, around 276,000 have Medicaid coverage, according to a 2022 report from the Williams Institute.

How to pay for gender-affirming surgery

If your private insurance company won’t cover gender-affirming care, and you’re unable to obtain coverage through the federal marketplace, consider these sources:

Online personal loan.

Credit union personal loan.

Credit card.

CareCredit.

Home equity line of credit.

Family loan.

There are also several nonprofits that offer financial assistance for gender-affirmation surgeries. Those organizations include:

Point of Pride , which offers grants and scholarships to trans and nonbinary people seeking gender-affirming surgery and care.

The Jim Collins Foundation , which raises money to fund gender-affirming surgeries. 

Genderbands , which offers grants for gender-affirming surgeries and care. 

Black Transmen Inc. , which funds gender-affirming surgeries for Black trans men.

Understanding the Cost and Criteria for Gender Reassignment Coverage

gender reassignment concept image

By  Holly Hanson, CFP, CIMA, ADPA

There are certain steps that a transgender individual must go through before transition, one of which is receiving a diagnosis of gender identity disorder (GID). GID is characterized by a person’s strong and persistent desire to be, or belief that he or she is, the other sex, including:

  • A preoccupation with getting rid of primary or secondary sex characteristics.
  • An absence of any physical intersex condition.
  • Clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational or other areas of functioning due to perceived incongruence between anatomical sex and perceived gender identity

GID Clearance

Clearance from a mental health professional/therapist is required for any type of body modification procedure except cosmetic surgery. The therapist should have familiarity with gender non-conformity and exhibit sensitivity in providing care.

The therapist will perform a psychological screening/assessment covering areas of emotional functioning, including peer and other social relationships. He or she will discuss possibilities and limitations of different treatments for GID.

Individuals with GID typically undergo treatment as prescribed by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health. This treatment follows a three-step approach to gender reassignment. It begins with the administration of cross-gender hormones to affect changes in physical appearance. The person being treated must then go through the “real-life” experience, which is a trial period of living as his or her true gender. The 12-month duration of the trial allows for the range of different life experiences and events that may occur throughout the year, including family events, holidays, vacations and season-specific work and/or school events.

Once this is complete, sex reassignment surgery — consisting of genital sex reassignment and/or nongenital sex reassignment — may be considered.

Preparing for GID Surgery

Here’s a snapshot of what is required before each surgery as well as the estimated costs.

Criteria for breast/chest surgery for transgender men

  • Referral from ONE mental health professional
  • Evidence of persistent, well-documented gender dysphoria
  • Capacity to make a fully informed decision and consent to treatment
  • Legal age (18+)*
  • Reasonable control of any preexisting medical concerns. (Hormone therapy is not a prerequisite.)

Some younger individuals may be eligible.

( Read more about FTM top surgery .)

Criteria for breast/chest surgery for transgender females

  • Persistent, well-documented gender dysphoria
  • Capacity to make fully informed decision and consent to treatment
  • Reasonable control of any preexisting medical concerns

Although not a criterion, it is recommended that male to female (MTF) patients receive hormonal therapy for a minimum of 12 months prior to breast implant surgery to maximize breast growth.

( Read more about breast augmentation for transgender women .)

Criteria for genital surgery

Hysterectomy (removal of uterus and ovaries) for transgender males and orchiectomy (removal of testicles) in transgender females.

  • Referral from TWO mental health professionals
  • Legal age (18+)
  • One year of hormone therapy to meet gender goals (unless hormones are contraindicated for any medical reason).

Criteria for genital reconstructive surgery

Metoidioplasty/Phalloplasty in transgender males and vaginoplasty in transgender females.

  • Capacity to make fully informed decision and consent for treatment
  • One year of hormone therapy to meet gender goals
  • One year spent living in a gender role that is congruent with their gender identity

Although not a criteria, it is recommended that these patients also have regular visits with a mental health or other medical professional.

Average Cost for Gender Reassignment

Electrolysis for unwanted hair removal can cost $100 to $200 per session. This is optional, but can be among the most costly of procedures for transgender females. Electrolysis is not covered by insurance in these cases.

The average total cost for transgender males is $50,000.

The average total cost for transgender females is $7,000 – $25,000.

The overall cost varies greatly. For starters, different doctors charge different amounts based on where their practice is based. In addition, some transgender individuals leave the country for the procedure(s). Some may not choose cosmetic surgery, and others may only undergo one or two procedures rather than committing to them all.

Insurance companies generally cover medically necessary procedures such as genital surgery and any surgery that alleviates severe gender dysphoria. Some insurance companies even partially cover hormone therapy since it could be considered hormone imbalance. Cosmetic surgery is not considered medically necessary and is not covered by most insurers.
