Chaz Bono is still working on creating the perfect “package.”
Chaz Bono, 42, is saving up for male genitalia.
The celebrated spawn of Sonny and Cher is socking away for the final phase of his gender reassignment, in which surgeons will create a fully-functional phallus for the LGBT activist.
“I could get a phalloplasty, which builds the phallus from a donor site on your body,” Bono, who changed his name from Chastity to Chaz, told Rolling Stone in a recent interview.
The size isn’t what’s most important, he says.
“But I’m leaning more toward a metoidioplasty. It’s a procedure that uses what you already have [the cli***is], which has grown larger from the testosterone,” he explained. “You end up with a smaller phallus than with the phalloplasty, but it’s fully functional, it gets erect, and the sensation is all there.”
Bono, who recently proposed to — and then broke up with — Jennifer Elia, 36, started female-to-male gender reassignment in 2008, which included a total mastectomy and heavy rounds of hormone treatment.
But a new beard and chest hair isn’t enough for Bono to feel like a real man.
“I’d like to have the testicular implants and all of that, and I’d like to be able to urinate through it,” Bono said, adding that he has already located Dr. Right – in Belgrade – where the cost of the procedure may run anywhere from $25,000 to $45,000.
Now we understand why Chaz was so adamant about feeling like a “real man” without finishing the surgery. That sounds expensive… and PAINFUL!
