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.
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
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.
