Receiving Approval for Gender Reassignment Surgery
Posted in General
Gender reassignment surgery is a life-altering procedure that requires an extensive series of tests prior to approval. These tests are performed in order to ensure that you are physically and mentally prepared for the process and the procedure.
Before surgery is considered, you will be examined by a professional in order to properly diagnose you with true gender dysphoria. The surgery must be recommended by at least two mental-health professionals who specialize in gender identity issues.
You will need to live a lifestyle that aligns with your desired gender for a minimum of one year. You will also need to undergo hormone therapy for at least one year. Lastly, you must undergo a full mental and physical examination to ensure that you are mentally and medically healthy.
