Chaz Bono saving up for penis operation

Chaz Bono has revealed that he is saving up for a procedure that will give him a penis.

The transgender star stated his intention to undergo a metoidioplasty, a procedure where testosterone is used to enlarge the clitoris and create a makeshift phallus. The operation is estimated to cost anywhere from $25,000 (£16,000) to $45,000 (£29,000).

"It's a procedure that uses what you already have down there," he told Rolling Stone. "It's fully functional, it gets erect, and the sensation is all there."

Bono added that he is also considering a phalloplasty, where doctors construct a penis from a donor site on the body.

"There's different ways to do the surgery, from real basic to more and more options," he said. "It's like a car.

"To break it down, the surgery I want to have, I'd like to have the testicular implants and all of that, and I'd like to be able to urinate through it. I mean, it's not that big a deal to sit down, but some of the toilet seats in men's rooms are disgusting."

Bono last month called off his engagement to long-term partner Jennifer Elia, who was apparently reluctant to see the 42-year-old go under the knife.

"I was in a fairly typical heterosexual relationship," he claimed. "I think Jen wished I wouldn't get the bottom done, but she understood my need to. You have to understand, though, for me the life transformation has already happened."

Bono recently said that he is looking forward to dating as a man for the first time.
