For some people, part of being trans is changing how you express yourself in the clothes you wear, how you carry yourself, and it can also be about changing your physical body. These things are known as transitioning. Transitioning is the process of a person moving from being seen as the gender they were assigned at birth to the gender they identify with.
For example: Using different names and pronouns, changing hairstyles and clothes, as well as binding breasts or wearing breast forms.
For example: Laser hair removal, hormone therapy, and various surgeries such as facial surgeries, top surgery (removing or augmenting breasts), hysterectomy, and bottom surgery (to alter genitals), which can also be called gender reassignment surgery or sex reassignment surgery.
