Girl Surgery

The day before her surgery, Desiree and I sat with Dr. Sutin Khobunsongserm in his small office at Bangkok’s Precha Aesthetic Institute. Desiree looked intently at the doctor’s PowerPoint presentation on the screen. In the nearly three years I had been interviewing Desiree Abellanosa (born Douglas Ray) for a book based on her life, I couldn’t recall a time seeing her this focused.

Frankly, I was pretty grossed out from the presentations graphic images of sex reassignment surgeries and the lengthy post-surgery recoveries. But Desiree didn’t flinch; not even when the doctor clicked to a picture of cut testicles and inverted penis with all its blood and raw flesh.

“What is the recovery time?” She asked as she sat close to Dr. Sutin their shoulders almost touching.

“After five to seven days we can remove the catheter if there is no swelling or infection. Then we will show you how to do dilation to maintain a vaginal depth of five to six inches.” The doctor paused on a slide showing a reconstructed vagina – still puffy and red, but looking very much like a female vagina.
