Hair Transplant

How do I prepare for the procedure? 

Your surgeon, through our virtual consultation, will provide you with a list of instructions on what to do before your procedure.

These will cover such areas as smoking, medications, what to bring with you to the hospital and when to have your last meal before surgery.


Hair Removal


Q1 : Will the procedure hurt?

A1 : Topical anesthesia is applied on the skin and allowed to take effect for about an hour before starting hair removal. This effectively keeps you from feeling pain.

Q2 : What do I need to do after treatment?

A2 : Apply cold compress during the first 24 hours. Avoid sun exposure. Do not use deodorant, or medicinal creams or anything except water to clean the area for two days. Gently pat dry after washing. Avoid rubbing the area for a week.


Female-to-Male Sex Reassignment Surgery


Q1 : Will I be asleep during surgery?

A1 : The anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia to keep you asleep and pain-free during surgery.

Q2 : What could go wrong?

A2 : Some risks of surgery include bleeding, adverse response to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, asymmetry, nerve injury, unfavorable scarring, sub-optimal aesthetic result, difficulty in passage of urine after phalloplasty, and need for revision surgery.

Q3 : How should I prepare myself for surgery?


Female-to-Male Sex Reassignment Surgery


Total Phalloplasty

The forearm penile graft prepared during the second stage surgery is transferred to the genital area.  Nerves and blood vessels are conserved so the penis has sensation.  The new penis is expected to function as a male excretory organ for urine.  With the aid of an erectile prosthetic device, it can also achieve penetration during sexual intercourse.

During this procedure, the labia majora are converted into scrotal sacs.  The patient may opt to have prosthetic testes inserted in the scrotal sacs in a future surgery.

Vaginectomy and Urethral Lengthening

Surgery that obliterates the vaginal cavity and lengthens the urethra in preparation for incorporation into the new penis in the third stage.  This gives the patient ability to urinate effectively in the standing position.

Urethral prefabrication

Preparation of a new penile graft in the forearm with embedded catheter which will serve as a functional intra-penile urethra after the third stage
