Sex reassignment surgery, also known as gender confirmation surgery or GCS, is a broad term used to describe a variety of procedures meant to confirm someone’s gender and treat gender dysmorphia. When it comes to MTF gender confirming surgery, these procedures can include genital surgeries, facial feminization surgeries, breast implants, and more. When combined with hormone therapy, these procedures can help make a person feel more comfortable in their own skin and in their gender.

Because GCS is such a broad term, we’ll help further explain what to expect during gender confirming surgeries here, with a focus on top surgery and genital surgery.
