Pop diva Cher's gender-bender son Chaz Bono has agreed to have a sex-swap operation with a Serbian surgeon, tabloid Blic reports.
The same source reveals the only detail to be agreed is whether the operation will take place in Serbia or in United Stated.
Dr Miroslav Djordjevic will create a penis to Chaz Bono in aim to complete his transformation into a man.
Chaz - born Chastity to the singer and her late husband Sonny - has already undergone hormonal treatment and lives as a man in the USA.
Dr Miroslav Djordjevic who has carries out 30 operations of this kind a year, will make a surgical procedure to create a penis out of the clitoris he was born with.
"Two thirds of my patients are from abroad as the surgery here costs up to 6,000 GBP and that's sometimes ten times cheaper than in the US," the doctor said earlier this year.
Dr Djordjevic, from Belgrade, explained he would create a pair of silicon testicles for Chaz and use hormone treatments for several months to increase the length of his clitoris to up to four inches.
The final operation would last for six hours, he added.
"Such a penis can pee like men do, but it is not functional for penetrative sex. If one wants penetration we would need to do additional surgery, using skin from his hand or back," explained the surgeon.
Chaz, 42, began his transgender reassignment two years ago and has already had his womb and breasts removed.
Chaz confirmed the plans on the Howard Stern radio show earlier this year.
"They take you clitoris and basically, kind of, use certain ligaments and stuff, make it a little bigger, release it, wire it so you can take a graft from your cheek. And they lengthen your urethra through it so you can urinate, and they put in testicular implants.
"You know, it'll be small, but you're going to be able to urinate through it. You'll be able to pee standing up. For me, the ultimate would be able to penetrate and have feeling," he said.
