In female-to-male transsexuals, the operative procedures are usually performed in different stages: first the subcutaneous mastectomy which is often combined with a hysterectomy-ovarectomy endoscopically assisted. The next operative procedure consists of the genital transformation and includes a vaginectomy, a reconstruction of the horizontal part of the urethra, a scrotoplasty and a penile reconstruction usually with a radial forearm flap or an alternative. After about one year, penile erection prosthesis and testicular prostheses can be implanted when sensation has returned to the tip of the penis.

Gender reassignment usually consists of a diagnostic phase mostly supported by a mental health professional , followed by hormonal therapy through an endocrinologist , a real-life experience, and at the end the gender reassignment surgery itself.
