DIVINE FAVOUR! Real Estate Developer Gives Olajumoke The Bread-Seller’ & Family Luxury Apartment In Lagos (See photos)
Olajumoke’s fortunes just got better as Sujimoto Construction Limited, Nigeria’s foremost Luxury Real Estate Developer offered her a luxury accommodation and Scholarship to a Finishing School, Poise Academy Nigeria – where she will be properly equipped with the tools to survive as professional model anywhere in the world.Olajumoke was not lucky, rather she was prepared and when the opportunity came, she seized it. Her story resonates with us at Sujimoto because it is a reminder of the numerous opportunities lurking around us and only those who dare to seize the moment and take a step will ultimately findtrue success.
According to CEO Sujimoto Construction, Sijibomi Ogundele,
“Olajumoke’s grass to grace story is my story. It is the story of my mother who also came to Lagos from Ijebu in search of a better life. Young people should learn from Olajumoke’s experience that hard work is the bedrock of all success and success only happens when preparation meets opportunity. There are no sustainable shortcuts. Without hard work, luck won’t last.”Lagos is a land of opportunity with a population of over 21 million people. About 72% of these people are non-indigenes who have left their native land to Lagos, in search of greener pastures because of the opportunities in Lagos. 60% of the Nigerian populations are between the ages of 25– 40 years old, with about 60% of them unemployed, while another 80% are unable to afford a day meal. The question is how many more Olajumokes are out there, who will leave their comfort zone and find opportunities without trying to blame the economy for their fate? Hard work and tenacity will always win “it” for you. Opportunities are all around us every day but very few like Jumoke seize them.
How DO surgeons perform a sex change? Eye-watering animation reveals every stage of how a man becomes a woman
This fascinating video reveals exactly how surgeons perform a male to female sex change.The animation, uploaded by the European Society of Urology, shows how a penis and testicles are removedand a vagina is formed.The new genitalia even has a clitoris capable of orgasm.It begins by making clear men who seek to become women must meet certain criteria.The patient must have already had two psychological approvals – where experts deem they should have thesurgery – before an assessment by surgeons to ensure they are fit and well.They must also have lived as a woman for at least 18 months, had hormone therapy for 12 months, and changed their first name legally by deed poll.The video shows how the patient is first put in a position in which they are lying on the operating table, theirknees bent and their feet flat and turned outwards.A catheter is placed in their urethra to drain urine and collect the fluid.Surgeons make a cut in the scrotum, the flap of skin is pulled back, and both testicles are removed.Next, the dorsal nerve bundle (a nerve that gives the penis feeling) the glans (the head of the penis) and the urethra (the pipe through which urine and semen flows) are separated from the corpus cavernosum, the main ‘shaft’ of the penis.
Now, the patient’s legs are raised and the penis is further dissected – with the corpora cavernosa – the main fleshy bits of the penis cut away – right up to the the pubic bone as possible.With this cut away only the urethra, the central pipe, is left.This is cut shorter, and is later put into a different place in the vagina, comparable to where a naturally-bornwoman would have her urethra, the outlet from which urine will flow.The excess skin of the penis and foreskin is used to make a long flaccid tube of skin, which is inverted to become vaginal canal, known as a ‘neo-meatus’.The rest of the urethra is stitched into it to make the canal slightly wider in circumference, so the woman will be able to have sex.Next, incisions are made in the genitals where women normally have a clitoris and a urethra.
A clitoris is formed through cutting the glans, the head of the penis, to a smaller size. It is then attached to the genitals with fine stitches.Surgeons then cut further down what was the scrotum, towards the anus, and cut away the anus’ main tendon, the centrum tendineum.The space between the rectum and the base of the prostate is roughly developed to make space for the new vagina, and the area is stitched up.For the outer female genitals, each half of the skin of the scrotum is tailored to become the labia minora and majora – the inner and outer ‘lips’ of the vagina’.The incisions are strategically placed to look like natural skin closes in the vaginal lips.Research has shown that after surgery many patients are able to enjoy a satisfying sex life.In one study, carried out on 24 patients at the University of Tuebingen, Germany, it was reported that all patients were able to have an orgasm.
Marc Pacifico, consultant plastic surgeon and member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), said the psychological aspects of the operation are ‘hugely important’.He told MailOnline: ‘This is an irreversible operation so the decision to go through with it has to be as concrete from the patient and from their doctors.’There are thorough psychiatric pathways that all the patients have to go down prior to even entering the surgical route.’The operation is not straightforward. ‘There are risks, as with any operation, but the genitals are not a cleanarea – so there is there is a risk of infection and delayed healing.’You can get stenosis, tightening of the vagina. Many people undergoing the surgery will need dilaters to open it up.’There’s a risk of bleeding, or the skin – such as the new clitoris – dying.’He added that sex change surgery is only one part of the gender reassignment process.He said: ‘The genitals are only one part of it; lots of people have surgery to feminise their nose and their voice box
