What is the best age to be transgender? The Endocrine Society recommends that they wait until age 18, but because more kids are transitioning at younger ages, some doctors are doing these surgeries earlier on a case-by-case basis.
How long does it take for a woman to transition to a man? Some of the physical changes begin in as little as a month, though it may take as long as 5 years to see the maximum effect.
What happens when you transition from man to woman? For trans women and some non-binary people medical transition may include any of the following: hormone therapy (to create feminine characteristics such as less body hair, breasts, redistribution of body fat toward hips and breasts, etc.) breast augmentation (implants) orchiectomy (removal of testes)
How much does it cost to switch from male to female? Gender reassignment surgeries are expensive. Bottom surgeries can cost about $25,000 and top (breast surgeries) from $7,800 to $10,000. Facial and body contouring are also costly. More employer insurance policies, and those sold under the Affordable Care Act, now cover at least some gender reassignment surgeries.
