Orchiectomy with scrotal removal |Miami |Dr. Harold Reed

Dr. Reed, Would you be able to do an orchiectomy with scrotal removal.  I am not contemplating a full vaginoplasty,.  My boyfriend gets turned on by my penis.


Dear Nelia,

For many with or without a boyfriend such as you describe, orchiectomy with scrotal removal is a good stopping point.  We have done many such cases and patients seem pleased.  Here is a photo taken from our web-site srsMiami/orchiectomy


Orchiectomy Example 2: Another patient status post orchiectomy and scrotal removal, unsure if she was ever capable of going all the way. P.S. she now wishes to have complete MTF and loss of scrotum poses no problem whatsoever.  Hoping to post followup photos in a few months.   

The advantages of removing a source of testosterone, being able to reduce your estrogens by about a 1/3rd if you are on  hormones, and more feminine secondary  sex characteristics are there.  Not to mention less infrapubic mass.

The disadvantage is not having scrotal skin to serve as an extension for depth should you later wish vaginoplasty using the inverted penile skin technique, however, there are ways to enhance depth should you reconsider.

  1. Dr. Reed,

    I am a 55 yr young male who has had bilaterial orchietomy approximately three years ago. I wish to have all the scrotum excess skin removed. I am mot seeking srs and for cosmetic appearence i wish to have this performed. Is this possible? If i may ask how the procedure is handled and about the cost? I wish not to seek srs at any time just want to have a better appearance.

    Thank you
