FTM metoidioplasty

Dear Dr. Reed,

How does a metoidioplasty differ from a phalloplasty.


Dear Gerri,

A metoidioplasty is an operation which results in a juvenile sized penis when the
clitoris which has enlarged secondary o t4stosterone taken usually intramuscularly
results in clitoral hypertrophy. This can be augmented by applying a compound similar
to testosterone to the clitoris.  Typical lengths are usually about 2 +/- inches.

Testicular implants can be provided to enhance the masculine appearance, and a
urethral extension can be fashioned for a stand to void result.

Please see for more information and
metoidioplasty photos.
