FTM Phalloplasty Surgery Guide

ImgPhalloplasty is a Gender Reassignment Surgery procedure for FTM transsexuals that creates a penis.

Phalloplasty surgery can provide a sensate penis, with erotic and/or tactile sensation, as well as rigidity for sexual intercourse (usually with a penile implant) and the ability to stand to urinate.

Phalloplasty Surgeons construct the penis using a graft of tissue taken from a donor site, such as the forearm, back, leg, abdomen or hip/groin. FTM Phalloplasty may also include vaginectomy, urethroplasty, scrotoplasty, glansplasty and penile implant surgery. Phalloplasty Procedures »

Today's FTM Phalloplasty results are typically exceptional, and have markedly improved in functionality and appearance as the techniques have developed over the past few decades. Phalloplasty Pictures »

Types of FTM Phalloplasty

Pedicled Flap PhalloplastyPedicled Flap Phalloplasty uses a skin flap that has one end left attached to the donor site and the other transposed to a new location, keeping the "pedicle" intact to retain blood supply. Pedicled Flap Phalloplasty techniques typically do not include microsurgical nerve connection (Pedicled ALT Phalloplasty excluded.) Sensation is thus limited to tactile.

Free Flap PhalloplastyFree Flap Phalloplasty uses a skin graft that's freed from the donor site—along with its blood supply, nerves and sometimes muscle—and transferred to the recipient site. Free Flap Phalloplasty techniques typically include microsurgical nerve connection (anastomosis), providing a sensate penis with erotic and/or tactile sensation.
