Sex reassignment surgery or SRS (also known as gender reassignment surgery, gender confirmation surgery, genital reconstruction surgery, gender-affirming surgery, or sex realignment surgery) is the surgical procedure (or procedures) by which a transgender person’s physical appearance and function of their existing genitalia are reconstructed to match their identified gender.
This vid gives an excellent portrayal of what actually happens in the operating room. Its not gory, its professionally made and it may clarify any misconceptions you have about the process.
This is a “male to female” procedure but there other “female to male” vids on You Tube and elsewhere if you are interested.
