Non-binary people assigned female at birth may also have these surgeries. Often used to refer to phalloplasty , metoidoplasty , or vaginectomy , sex reassignment surgery can also more broadly refer to many procedures an individual may have, such as male chest reconstruction , hysterectomy , or oophorectomy ,.
