If you think the demand for real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area is hot, you should see the demand for sex change surgeons. There are a lot of men in the Bay Area who are just dying to go under the knife so they can be used like a woman. A new doctor setting up shop in Marin County, just north of San Francisco, is already booked seven months in advance.
For Dr. Thomas Satterwhite of Mill Valley, a black gay man, being a plastic surgeon who specializes in gender reassignment surgery feels like the most natural thing in the world.
“It’s very natural and easy for me,” Satterwhite said.
Satterwhite recently joined the staff of Marin General Hospital and performed his first vaginoplasty at Marin General in September…. A vaginoplasty involves the building of a vaginal canal for patients who are transitioning from male to female….
Satterwhite expects to conduct 15 vaginoplasties at Marin General this year and eventually as many as four per week to meet demand. He is booked seven months in advance for such procedures.
