This publication provides information about the various options for ‘lower’ surgery (including genital surgery) for trans men. The aim of such surgery is to improve the lives of trans men, both psychologically and physically, by achieving a closer match between their genital appearance, their sexual function, and their self identification as men. It is a guide to what can, and what cannot, be achieved through surgery.
