What Is Bottom Surgery?
Bottom surgery is the surgical procedure of removing or altering the external genitalia so that it resembles those of a woman’s. There are many types of bottom surgeries available today, but they all have one thing in common – they alter the appearance of your genitals to resemble those of a woman’s. A man’s genitals do not typically change shape to look like women’s.
There are several reasons why someone might want to undergo bottom surgery. Some may wish to alter their bodies in order to conform with societal norms; others may desire physical changes such as increased sexual pleasure or self-confidence. Many transgender individuals choose bottom surgery because they feel that it will make them more comfortable living life as a member of the opposite biological gender. Others simply believe that having a female body makes them better suited for being feminine and expressing femininity than if they had a male body.
It is important to note that there are different types of bottom surgery. Metoidioplasty involves the creation of a new opening in the chest cavity through which blood flow can pass. The resulting hole is usually small enough to allow for a bra strap to be attached and worn under clothing without constricting movement or causing discomfort. Scrotoplasty involves the creation of a scrotum that is able to contain testicles. Penile inversion involves the skin of the penile glans and a portion of the penile body being inverted and formed into a neovagina.
Why You Might Need To Have It
There are many reasons why one might consider having bottom surgery. For some, it is a way of resolving gender dysphoria. Others experience gender dysphoria because their genitals do not match their gender identity. This can very disruptive and make it difficult to function in society. In fact, studies have shown that two-thirds of individuals diagnosed with gender dysphoria attempt suicide at least once after being diagnosed.
With the rise in gender reassignment surgeries becoming more common, more medical professionals are offering procedures that are designed to aid in the transition process, such as bottom surgeries. If you have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria and your doctor has determined that you are eligible for bottom surgery, there are a few reasons why this might be the case. It is important to note that not everyone who is eligible for bottom surgery will need or want to have it. If you do decide that you want to move forward with the procedure, it is vital that you understand the risks involved as well as the steps that will be taken during the procedure.
How Bottom Surgery Can Help
For some, bottom surgery will be the only surgery that they will need in order to resolve their gender dysphoria. For others, it may be just one step of many to resolve their gender dysphoria. Many individuals who have this surgery are able to live happy and productive lives after their operations. The contentment that they experience after having the procedure done is enough to put an end to their gender dysphoria.
What To Expect
Before you undergo bottom surgery, there are a few preparations that your doctors will want to go over with you. Because this is an invasive and somewhat complex procedure, there are some risks involved. Risks include surgical complications as well as the normal risks that are posed by anesthesia. As with any other surgical procedure, there is also a risk of death. You will be provided with a list of things that you should and should not do before and after the procedure.
