Research Into Reversal Of Gender Reassignment Surgery

The experience of ‘detransitioners’ is well-documented but has not previously been studied so we’re very happy that a UK researcher is carrying out a study into the experiences of people who have had surgery to reverse gender reassignment surgery.  The information gathered will be of great importance as part of the debate about the transition of children and adolescents so please do share this study widely on social media and if you write a blog you are also welcome to use the details and contact address below in a blog post to get the message out further:


I work in the gender field in the UK, am based at a UK university and am carrying out research into the experiences of people who have undergone reverse gender reassignment surgery (GRS), or who have reversed a double mastectomy (chest surgery). There is no research into this, and very little into people who reverse gender transition, although there is evidence on the internet of people detransitioning. I would like to give a voice to people who have gone through this. I would like to talk to those who, having as part of gender reassignment first undergone Gender Reassignment Surgery (also known as Sex Reassignment Surgery), or double mastectomy, and who then decided to have this surgery reversed, and have undergone an operation or operations to do so. This could be genital surgery, but also double mastectomy (chest surgery), in which case reversal would mean having implants. You should be a minimum of eighteen months post operative, and can be anywhere in the world. All replies will be treated as confidential. I am happy to answer any questions about the research. Many thanks.

    I take it that James has been in touch with the most famous detransitioner of all, Walt Heyer? If not, someone should suggest him first. Stephanie, do we know?
