Gender reassignment surgery

Gender reassignement surgery requires close monitoring by a psychiatrist before pursing it.  Usually a plastic surgeon then will perform breast surgery( removal or enhancement)/  The genitalia surgery requires special training but is usually done by a plastic surgeon with or without a urologist.
