Dear Dr. Reed, Please advise regarding electrolysis for vaginoplasty I ams scheduled for vaginoplasty with you in a few months. As I mentioned depth is very important.
It is possible to do a very thorough electrolysis in 2 to 3 sessions which conform to our electrolysis diagram… see srsmiami.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/ELECTROLYSIS-DIAGRAM.pdf
If you are like 80% of our patients you will need a scrotal graft extension to get good vaginal depth. Scraping hair at the time of surgery is not very reliable. Here is an example done abroad
During sex tugging at these hair follicles is very unpleasant. Allow 3 to 4 weeks for hair regrowth so you may wish a secondary passover. That’s why we say ideally start 2 months before surgery, so when you are having your operation, that day you are all set.
