Are men missing their ‘junk’? Transgender reversals are on the rise

Powered by Topple

Is the fad of being transgender beginning to wane,or are men just missing their “junk” once removed?

A surge in patients wanting to reverse their transgender surgery — sex change regret — is getting little attention in the media.

…and the solution may be found in more thorough psychiatric screenings.

Dr. Miroslav Djordjevic, a urologist in Belgrade, is seeing an increase in the number of patients seeking reversal surgery, the Daily Mail reported.

Interestingly, Serbia is the global hub of transgender corrective surgery, according to the British tabloid, despite the country being “openly hostile to LGBT groups.”

“Definitely reversal surgery and regret in transgender persons is one of the very hot topics,” Djordjevic said in an interview with The Telegraph.

The doctor suggested that a leading cause may be insufficient psychiatric screening before undergoing the procedure

More from the Daily Mail on patients being seen by Dr. Djordjevic:

Most are seeking reattachment of male genitalia, a complicated procedure which costs upwards of $20,000.

The news comes amid a huge rise in the rate of gender reassignment patients.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons found a nearly 20 percent increase in vaginoplasties, phalloplasties, top surgery and contouring operations in just the first year of reporting.

Increasingly, insurance companies are offering coverage for surgery for patients with gender dysphoria – a disconnect between how an individual feels and what their anatomic characteristics are.

 

The Daily Mail reported that in 2016, more than 3,200 surgeries were performed to “help transgender patients feel more like themselves” — which may be a conservative estimate, due to documentation irregularities.

But Djordjevic warned that there is a stigma surrounding reversals — driven by political correctness, perhaps?
