In South Africa you are mostly looking at private rates for surgery. Medical aids also doesn't cover the costs. You need to tell be though a bit more, if you are asking for SRS, are you looking for the costs for MTF or FTM?

Either way, I will give you a little bit of answers of costs I know of. If you are FTM and looking for costs of chest surgery, that vary between R15 000.00 and R26 000.00 (average of a few people). Hyst etc can vary in more or less the same price range. I have no time relevant price range for phalloplasty but is is estimated at about R150 000.00 (or more?).

If you are MTF and looking for prices for surgery, I would need to have a bit more detail, i.e. do you want BA included, did you have already ocidectomie? All in all I estimate you are looking at about R80 000.00 - R120 000.00
