What comes to mind when you think of surgery? For me, it used to be men and women striving for a Ken and Barbie look they’ll never quite achieve.
But times have changed. And now for some people, it is a lifeline.
In the US alone, over 9million people chose to get cosmetic surgery in 2011. And as techniques and expertise have improved over the years, so, in many cases, have the results.
For some trans people, it is the only way they can be happy in the skin they are in. For some people with no confidence, it can lift their spirits.
