How large should a male to female transgender clitoris be

Dr. Reed, How large should a male to female transgender clitoris be.  I am concerned if the transgender surgeon doesn’t male it large enough I will not be fully orgasmic?  Wendy

Dear Wendy, please go on-line under images google and look at natal mature female clitoris pictures.  A normal clitoris is about 2/3rd the diameter of your pinky (5th finger).  In that a neo-clitoris of this size is capable of intense orgasm why put something there that looks like a juvenile penis  We have many before and after photos of our transgender female vulvas on our web-site (scroll down) and what you see protruding under the hood in just the glans clitoris, the body goes back further than that, just as on a natal female.  The rest is up to you and your partner.
