Eight successful surgeries for change of male sex into female have been done in Azerbaijan since 2002 until 2011.

According to member of the European Association of Plastic Surgeons Jamal Azimzade, the demand for such operations is growing.

"The matter is that the sex-change operation in Azerbaijan takes some AZN 5,000, while it is much more expensive in other countries.

All operations that I personally did on sex change were successful. On 27 August I received a phone call from another patient who wants to change sex. Thus, it is possible to say that the demand for these surgeries exists and is growing", Azimzade said.
