The animation, uploaded by the European Society of Urology , shows how a penis and testicles are used to create a vagina, complete with a clitoris capable of orgasm.
As the procedure is irreversible, the patient must be completely certain they want to go through with it. The video shows a male to female sex change They need to have had two psychological approvals - where experts deem they should have the surgery - before surgeons assess whether they are fit enough for it.

The video shows how the patient is first placed lying on the operating table flat on their back with their feet turned outwards. A catheter is placed in their urethra to drain urine and collect the fluid. The testes are removed Surgeons then make a cut in the scrotum, the flap of skin is pulled back, and both testicles are removed.
Next, the dorsal nerve bundle, which gives the penis feeling, the glans or head and the urethra which carries urine are separated from the main shaft of the penis.
Now, with the patient's legs raised, the shaft or corpora cavernosa is cut away, leaving only the urethra left. The rest of the urethra is stitched into it to make the canal slightly wider in circumference, so the woman will be able to have sex.
The graphic shows the whole procedure in vivid detail Next, incisions are made in the genitals where women normally have a clitoris and a urethra. A clitoris is formed through cutting the glans, the head of the penis, to a smaller size. It is then attached to the genitals with fine stitches. The space between the rectum and the base of the prostate is roughly developed to make space for the new vagina, and the area is stitched up.
The incisions are strategically placed to look like natural skin closes in the vaginal lips. The operation is then finished. Research has shown that after surgery many patients are able to enjoy a satisfying sex life. In one study, at the University of Tuebingen, Germany, all 24 patients were able to have an orgasm.
