It depends on where you live. In the United States you could require a letter from the surgeon which you provide to the court and they issue the order to change your birth certificate. Other states have less restrictive procedure and other countries have their own standards. Googling your location+transgender or transsexual+birth certificate will normally provide you with the procedure you need to follow.

KathyLauren:
I took a quick look at the form for Quebec.  The only reference I can see to requiring a doctor's letter is if you have applied for a change of gender in another juristiction (whether you received the change or not), then you need a letter from a Canadian physician.

You can find the requirements and a link to the form here: http://www.etatcivil.gouv.qc.ca/en/change-sexe.html
