How is the surgery performed?

The surgery begins with the surgeon making a vaginal cavity between the rectum and the urethra. The surgeon cuts some of the pelvic floor muscles to implant a neo vagina. After this the surgeon creates an incision to split the penis. The urethra is cut and re-routed to emerge lower placing it above the newly implanted vaginal opening. Then the surgeon cuts through the scrotal skin and removes the testicles to make a vaginal cavity. Then the Scrotal skin inclusive of the surrounding tissues is used to create external genitalia like the Labia Minora and Labia Majora to replicate the biological female genitalia. After this the “Penile Inversion Vaginoplasty” is used to turn the penile skin inside out and along the line of the vaginal wall. With this technique the depth of the vagina is limited. In case the patient has short or small penis then the surgeon uses the scrotal skin and the penile skin in order to increase the depth of the vagina (generally by 6-7 inches). Then the surgeon creates a clitoris by culturing a small section of glans penis and takes care that the blood supply and the nerves remain intact. Then it is positioned just above the urethral meatus. The labia minora is also made using a part of the glans penis and prepuce skin.
