What is Male-to-Female Sex Reassignment Surgery?
Feminizing modification of the genitalia in males diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder is possible upon submission of required supporting documents (see Special Requirements section). The surgery aims to create a visually realistic and functional female genital anatomy complete with labia, clitoris and vaginal canal.
The new clitoris is fashioned from a portion of the sensitive penile head (glans penis). It has its own nerve and blood supply, enabling sensitivity to sexual stimulation, arousal, and orgasm.
The neo-vagina is typically 5-7 inches deep and is made by Penile Skin Inversion technique if the length of the penis is adequate, or by Colon Vaginoplasty technique in cases of inadequate penile length. As with biological females, this new vaginal canal is located between the urethra and the rectum.
