Good Afternoon Dr. Reed!
I sent a previous request for information last week regarding stage two labiaplasty. I am a post op MTF transexual. I had my GRS performed in Thailand. A few years subsequent to my GRS, I had transitioned back to living full time as a male. I do not regret having my GRS whatsoever, but I am unsatisfied with the outcome and overall appearance of the procedure. I would like to have cost information and schedule availability for stage two labiaplasty, as previously noted in the beginning of this email. I look forward to your forthcoming response and thank you in advance for your assistance on this matter.Hi again Dr. Reed,
Very Kind Regards, Skyler
Thank you for returning my email.
Yes, I agree that I have unique set of circumstances. I am trying to better understand and get my arms around the reasoning for obtaining written clearance letters, as my GRS was performed 6 years ago and what I am seeking, is corrective surgery to improve the appearance of this area.
Please advise if this is still a requirement as I am prepared to move forward with scheduling the telephone consultation with you.
Thank you once again for your prompt response and have an enjoyable weekend.
Very Best Regards,

Good afternoon Skyler,
I am puzzled by your transitioning back which of course happens as there is a 3% incidence of remorse. Many of these patients lambast their doctors for not using better judgment and rushing them.
We do have prospective patients write who are genetic males, do wish to continue to be regarded as men but wish a vagina. I have not yet operated on such a patient, but typical letters come in usually once every 2 weeks.
Despite letters of clearance for surgery, I find that not all patients under stress are emotionally stable. In that your life style is a departure from “traditional” transgender patients before I get involved I would at least like concurrence of professional opinion that I am doing a productive and worthwhile surgery.
Will you be using your vagina sexually with an intimate or is it just for autogynephilia (self pleasure to know it is there)? Why have you lapsed back outwardly into manhood?
