Do centro cirúrgico, sairá diferente: sem útero, ovários e trompas. Em data ainda a ser definida, passará pela extração das mamas. Os procedimentos constituem o passo mais contundente da transformação de Alexandra em Alexandre, ou Xande, primeiro transexual feminino do país a realizar uma cirurgia de mudança de sexo custeada pelo Sistema Único de Saúde – entre os homens, a prática existe desde 2008. Cada intervenção para retirada dos órgãos reprodutivos femininos (histerectomia total) e da mama (mastectomia) vai custar aos cofres públicos 717,90 reais e 462,80 reais, respectivamente.
