Our expert says:
The procedure to follow in order to have gender reassignment is as follows. You need to first go see a psychologist who will evaluate you and determine whether you are transsexual or some other variation of transgendered. From there the psychologist will refer you to other medical professionals who will then take you through the process of transitioning.
You will have to live in the gender of your choice for at least 6 months to 2 years before they will perform any surgery. This is known as the real life test. This is to ensure that you are comfortable in the gender of your choice and that you have fully integrated into society.
