A Controlled Study of Psychological and Social Change after Surgical Gender Reassignment in Selected Male Transsexuals
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 02 January 2018
Of two groups of 20 patients accepted for gender reassignment surgery, one was offered early operation and therefore had had surgery by follow-up two years later, while the second was still awaiting operation at two-year follow-up. Although the groups were similar initially, significant differences between them emerged at follow-up in terms of neuroticism and social and sexual activity, with benefits being enjoyed by the operated group.
