How Gender Identity Disorder can be treated?
Hello friends, I am Dr. Anubhav Gupta. I am a consultant plastic surgeon working at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi. Today, I am going to talk about a condition which has increasingly become more frequent in our practice and that is Gender Identity Disorder.
Gender Identity Disorder is a condition where in a person has incongruency between his sex and gender. Let me explain it to you, a person whose phenotypic and genotypic condition is male, his sex is also male. For example, a person who is having external genitalia, penis, beard, etc that is his phenotype, that is his sex and that is also a genotypic test as gene XY, so that will be his sex. But, gender is what a person feels about himself. For example, a male who is having phenotype and genotype sex as male but he feels he is a female then that is the gender of that person. What a person feels about himself is called his gender. So, when there is an imbalance between the sex and the gender of a person, it is called Gender Identity Disorder.
Basically, it is not what is wrong about them, it is why they feel about this. There is something which is hardwired into their brain, that they don’t have a feeling of equilibrium with their sex. It is not a disease; it is the way they think. There are certain neurohormonal factors which at the time of development have been said to cause this condition but there are no researchers that conclude the cause of this condition.
Yes, the government of India has now recognized the third gender that is transgendered. People who are not in congruence with their sex have been recognized as legal by the government of India.
See, when these patients come us, basically there are now well-described guidelines. When the patient first, comes to me, I first tell them what the exact condition that they have is and I send the person to a psychiatrist for evaluation. We have to be sure whether they have Gender Identity Disorder before we go for the surgery. So, the psychiatrist starts his treatment, basically takes counseling sessions and he tries to ascertain whether this person is actually having gender identity disorder.
Now, the recommendations are that permanent gender surgery, that is the change of gender surgeries like penectomy and vagina creation and penile creation, these are gender surgeries and are permanent in nature, should not be done before 1-year certification by the psychiatrist has been given. But, other surgeries like face surgery, and breast surgery, can be done after 3 months of psychiatric evaluation. So, this is what we follow. Once a psychiatrist has seen and he certifies that this person has gender identity disorder, we start doing the facial surgeries, and once a period of 1 year has passed, in the meantime we also send him to an endocrinologist who counsels them about hormonal therapy and we further encourage them to cross dress and live in the society as the gender of which they feel they want to stay.
So, once these things fall into place then we move into surgery. And, before surgery, we also need a certification from another psychiatrist just to counter and confirm what the first psychiatrist has felt. So we have certification from two psychiatrists and after a period of one year, we can proceed to Permanent Gender Surgery. Before we do that gender surgery we also need to take an affidavit in the court of law in which the person who is undergoing the surgery and the surgeon, they understand the fact that it is a permanent surgery and the person who is undergoing surgery will not be able to procreate or reproduce in the future, and the patients, when they understand these factors are then counseled and then the surgery is done.
In male to female patients, the initial surgeries, we start with the face surgery, such as Genioplasty and Rhinoplasty. Then, these patients, if they require breasts, we go for a breast augmentation by implants. There are two types of implants; if the chest is having enough space, we can go for a silicone implant and sometimes the chest of males are very tight, then we have to use an expander implant. So these are the common surgeries. Then there is the genital surgery which is a permanent surgery where we do a penile disassembly surgery and we use the penile skin to create a new vagina and we do an orchiectomy at the same time and so we do a gender surgery.
In the female to male also, we start with the face, rhinoplasty, brow lift, genioplasty, McSteamy is done, and these are the initial surgeries. Mastectomy is done where the male chest is created. And, finally after one year of treatment, we go for a creation of a new phallus, we create a penis by the process of radial artery forearm flap, wherein we take the skin from the hand and we create a penis. After that, we can do testicular implants in the labia majora to create testicles. And later on, this surgery is successful of the penile reconstruction by radial artery forearm flap and the patient is having sensation till the tip of the penis. Then we do a final erectile implant which can even cause the erection.

It's here! summer! a time for picnics, swimming, beaches and lots of sunshine. So what can you do to make sure that you have a healthier summer? Ayurveda recognizes that the patterns found in nature can also be found within our bodies. We are constantly interacting with nature and as the seasons change so do our bodies. That means what you were doing in the winter and spring, may not be what your body need in the summer.
To understand what happens to your body during the summertime, you must first understand the characteristics of the pitta dosha, which is the dominant ayurvedic dosha (please read vata- pitta -kapha the three bio-energies notes from our page) in the summer. Pitta is the dosha responsible for transformation and is associated with our digestion, assimilation, and metabolism. And just like the sun, pitta radiates lots of heat and energy. The heat is associated with a good healthy metabolism and a good appetite. But when it goes out of balance pitta people tend to get overheated. This can make you feel easily irritated and angered as well as make you vulnerable to inflammatory conditions, food allergies, and skin rashes, especially with too much sun exposure.
The pitta dosha has specific qualities such as hot, oily, sharp, spreading and liquid. These qualities are manifested as specific physical characteristics in pitta individuals who are in balance. Hot represents a strong, healthy appetite. Oil can be seen as soft, supple skin. Sharpness manifests as a strong intellect and an active mind that is able to solve problems and stay organized. Spreading can be seen as the desire to create and be involved in many projects, which is why pitta people are often popular with others. Liquid is an aspect of pitta which allows for easy transportation, and that is why pitta individuals often tend to sweat easily and have multiple bowel movements a day.
So how does this tie into summer balance? summer is usually the hottest time of the year with the sun being the closest to the earth. This increases the pitta within us all. But if your pitta was already out of balance, you will have tendency to have more health problems during the summer. The first signs of excess pitta that I typically notice in myself are more irritability and greater skin sensitivity to the sun. In the summer time, pitta individuals may start becoming more aggressive, break out in rashes, have worsening heartburn or stomach pain, catch a 'summer' cold, suffer from worsening allergies, get heat stroke, and get more headaches as the weather gets warmer. But just because you have too much pitta doesn't mean you can't enjoy the summer. You just need to take some healthy precautions to prevent your pitta from getting out of balance
The key to keeping pitta balanced in the summer is easy - just chill out! here are few easy ways to keep your pitta nice and cool.
1. Spend less time in the sun. Avoid doing hard work during the hours between 10 am and 3 pm, which is when the sun is the hottest. When you go outdoors, keep your head covered and drink lots of fluids.
2. Avoid hot foods, spicy and fermented oil. Diet is the most powerful way to keep pitta cool. During the summer avoid foods that increase the heat in your body such as chilies, vinegar, oily foods, fried foods, fermented foods, salt, cheese and sour foods. In place of these items, eat foods that have a cooling effect on your body such as sweet, watery fruits like melons and mangoes and green leafy vegetables.
3. Try rose-petal preserves. They're a wonderful, tasty treat that will help you cool down your heart and mind. You can spread them on bread or just eat them straight.
4. Get a coconut-oil massage. It'll help to draw out excess heat from your body. Just rub coconut oil over your body and let it absorb for 5 minutes before your shower. You can also rub it on your feet at night especially if your feet start to burn at bedtime.
5. Have some fun! pitta individuals can sometimes get too serious and caught up in their head. Do your best to balance hard work with some relaxation time with family and friends.
6. Go for a swim. Swimming is the best exercise in the summer. The cool water balances out the excess heat inside your body.
7. Make my favorite summer drink! try freshly squeezed watermelon and cucumber juice with a hint of rose water.
8. Yoga - do sheetli or sheetkari pranayam and this wil have a cooling effect on the body.
9. Topical remedies for soothe sunburn -
- Apply aloe vera cream. Or if you have access to an aloe vera plant lightly rub a piece o the plant (after cutting it, open and taking out gel) on the sun burn area.
- Coconut oil is effective for soothing the sun burn skin.
- Apply tikta ghrita topically.
- Take gauze pad dip into cool cow milk and apply it directly to the sun burn area. If you have no milk available, use a cloth and dip in cool water, but milk is better.
- Pulverize some lettuce and apply the pulp directly on the sun burn area.
- Make a paste of sandalwood and turmeric by mixing equal amount of these herbs with a little cool water. Apply gently to the sunburn area it will have a cooling effect.
You have a great opportunity to be in harmony with nature by learning to balance your lifestyle, diet and activities with each season. This helps you to understand yourself better year round and keep you feeling great all the time.
Have a great summer!
