Specialty of Andrology

Phalloplasty entails the reconstruction or modification of a penis using the patient’s own skin tissue and fat from their arm. After surgery it is usual for the penis to be sensitive to the touch. Although urinating is fine, a prosthesis would be needed for sexual intercourse. This prosthesis must always be implanted in a second operation.

The phalloplasty takes between 10 and 12 hours and should always be performed under general anaesthesia.
