Man Documents His Incredible Transformation Into A Woman In Just 17 Months, And Her Smile In Last Image Says It All

Published 7 years ago

“I was a girl in a guys body and now I’m just me,” claims Selgal, a student from Ohio, who recently went through hormone replacement therapy (HTR) in order to feel more comfortable in her own body. The trans woman shared the pictures of her gradual transition over 17 months to show that is never too late to change who you are.

The woman took estrogen hormones that are known to change the facial features into more feminine as it affects the fat distribution on faces. It can make jaw and chin lines more delicate, make lips a little fuller, and affect the cheeks and tissue around the eyes, resulting in softer facial features. Selgal also mentioned that she did voice training for her voice to sound a little higher.

Selgal is confident that “happiness is real, you just have to be willing to risk anything to find it.” Scroll down to see her transformation below.
