Post-Op Transgender Genitalia, Photographic Examples – The Reed Centre

Dr. Reed, How close does your post-op transgender genitalia approximate natal female vagina?  Daliah

Dear Daliah,

Creating credible transgender genitalia should be the goal of every transgender surgeon.  This is not just about male genital ablation.  Our goals are to provide a labia majora, labia minora, sensate clitoris, with clitoral hood, a urethral opening that lets you void down, a lubricious vagina with respectable vaginal depth.  To do this carefully takes about 3 hours and 45 minutes to 4 1/2 hours.  Post-op transgender care is also important to facilitate optimal wound healing.

Lastly we have to be accessible to you, should any questions or concerns arise.  You don’t want prompts, infomercials, music on hold, or an answering service.

Please look at before and after transgender vaginoplasty pictures on our web-site srsMiamicom  Hope you like what you see.
