Dr. Lecter says that Buffalo Bill has probably applied without success to all three major centers for sexual reassignment surgery. One does not apply directly to such a surgical center. First, one must get an appointment with a gender clinic, where, after evaluation, a psychiatrist could diagnose them with gender dysphoria and recommend that they begin the transition process, which may include dressing as the opposite gender and beginning hormone replacement therapy. Only after at least a year of doing so would a doctor recommend a patient for surgery, which requires a letter from two psychiatrists.
The producers wish to thank Adele, Bobby and the rest of the gang at Bufa's.
