Men, hold on tight.

Have you ever had surgery? If so, what was it for?

With an estimated 51.4 million inpatient surgeries performed each year in the United States alone, many of us have undergone surgery before. From small procedures like tonsillectomies or having our wisdom teeth removed to longer surgeries that may take hours to complete, perhaps even with our lives on the line, modern medicine never ceases to amaze us.

If and when you got surgery, did it change your life? Save it? One surgery that’s getting more and more coverage in recent years often does both for those seeking it out. The procedure? Sex reassignment surgery, or SRS.

Though the thought might be scary for those comfortable in their own bodies, this surgery gives the opportunity of a second chance for those suffering from gender dysphoria or gender identity disorder.

So, how does it work? A new animated video takes us through the specifics of a male-to-female transition, and it will make you seriously respect those who go choose to go through with it.

Warning, even as an animation, this is not for the faint of heart.
