Today's trans females arent so satisfied with testosterone injections/double mastectomies. Trans Trending females (trans females under age 25) today are seeking bottom surgery in higher and higher numbers, especially in countries where these surgeries are now paid for with tax payer dollars. I suspect the larger number of trans females seeking bottom surgery has as much to do with their young immature/insecure ages as it does the commodification of transition itself by media/medical professionals.
There are several different popular bottom surgeries, I will go through each in individual posts beginning with the Radial Forearm Flap.

The reality of the Radial Forearm Flap? One healthy forearm is sacrificed (permanently disfigured) for its skin/veins/nerves to wrap around a cylindrical tube lined with another tube connecting to the urethra and sewn over the living clitoris, in effect, burying the clitoris beneath. Even the best outcomes are fraught with urinary complications of which there are NO long term studies. Therefore even as these complications are treated in various short term stages, no one know how aging might effect urination later on. The forearm dildo even in the short term, shrinks in size, given the lack of long term studies medical professionals do not know what amount of shrinkage might occur over the lifetime of the patient or how that shrinkage will affect necessary use.

The forearm dildo looks nothing like a penis, and the labia majora filled with potentially cancer causing/immune related tissue disorder balls appear equally strange looking. Urinating, whether sitting or standing using the forearm dildo holds many complications in the short term and unknowable complications with aging. Using the forearm dildo for sexual intercourse:
