Sex reassignment surgery SRS refers to a variety of surgical techniques used to change the bodies of people who have gender dysphoria. The surgeries involved in sex reassignment are also referred to as gender confirming surgery, gender reassignment surgery GRS or sex change surgery. Gender dysphoria, also known as transgenderism or gender identity disorder GID , is a condition in which a person feels a major mismatch between their biological sex and their gender identity. It is not a type of mental illness, although it was wrongly believed to be one in the past. People with gender dysphoria can be treated with counselling, hormone therapy and sex change surgical procedures.

The search for publications intentionally identified only studies reported in English or German. Studies of trans persons who were under age were excluded too. During the study selection process we excluded according to the mentioned criteria those studies that were not able to contribute to answering our research question figure. Furthermore, we searched the reference lists of all selected articles in order to be able to include further studies that were not found in the databases. This yielded four additional studies that met the inclusion criteria.
