Many transgender people want to transition or become more aligned with their true gender. For this process, SRS doctors first recommend hormone therapy to transform the physical appearance of their bodies. Hormone specialist doctors do this process. Some transgender people who transition using hormones need surgery to finish their transition. Surgeons can change the patient’s upper body, sexual appearance, and sexual genitalia with surgery. This will help in aligning the genital appearance with your gender identity.
