The cost of gender reassignment surgery, also known as gender confirmation surgery or gender-affirming surgery, can vary widely depending on several factors such as the specific procedure, geographical location, surgeon’s fees, hospital or surgical facility fees, anesthesia costs, post-operative care, and any additional expenses associated with the surgery.

It’s important to note that the cost of gender reassignment surgery can be substantial and may not be covered by insurance in all cases. Insurance coverage for gender-affirming surgeries varies depending on the insurance provider, policy terms, and regional regulations. Some insurance plans may cover some or all of the costs, while others may have specific criteria that need to be met for coverage.

As an approximate range, the cost of male-to-female (MTF) gender reassignment surgery can range from $20,000 to $40,000 or more. This typically includes procedures such as breast augmentation, genital reconstruction surgery (vaginoplasty), and potentially other procedures such as facial feminization surgery.

For female-to-male (FTM) gender reassignment surgery, the cost can range from $50,000 to $100,000 or more. This typically includes procedures such as chest masculinization (top surgery), genital reconstruction surgery (phalloplasty or metoidioplasty), and potentially other procedures like hysterectomy or facial masculinization surgery.

It’s important to note that these cost ranges are approximate and can vary significantly depending on individual circumstances, surgeon fees, geographic location, and other factors.
