    I was wondering last night....

    does a sex change operation modify one's DNA? You know how the 23rd pair of chromosome in a human is either XX(female) or XY(male) right? So is it even possible to morph DNA like that? Does it happen through hormonal therapy on its own?

    I dont think so, no. to modify every single cell's DNA would be a mad undertaking, probably some laws against it somewhere.

    I think there's hormonal therapy involved, but not so much as changing one's DNA.

    This. They give you hormones depending on if you want to be a guy/girl and the sex change which do not think it is magically look I have a $#@!/$#@!, you got something like it but from pictures I have seen it aint pretty.

    Side note sex change is going to be covered under many insurances here in the US soon.

    No

    But it changes your your clothes size, from a 13 to a sexy 6 number and the high heels are to die for

    That's what I thought. Its not possible to mutate every cell's DNA, so when people get sex changes, their DNA still remains of their original sex? Creepy (just like the end product of the operation)

    your DNA is unique to you and you alone... It is impossible to change it, unless you know the full inns and outs off the DNA coding
