Dear Dr. Reed,
Have lost almost all my depth
I take hormones and I had SRS surgery in Canada in 1993.
Specific_Questions: in the last few years iv not been sexually active and have lost almost all my depth. I’m 39 years old and IM scared and have developed anxiety attacks.
Dear Diana, Maintaining vaginoplasty depth after surgery requires dedicated use of the vaginal dilators, always aiming for the belly button. Ideally your doctor should have showed you how to do hat in font of a female surrogate who would watch you at home to be sure you are doing it properly and safely.
You may be able to reclaim your depth using dilators cautiously over a period of a few months. The dilators should have depth marks on the shank so you can follow your progress. If not, we offer a non-grafdt6ed, non colonic approach. We will recreate the cavity which after 8 weeks or so becomes lined with epithelium. Yes, afterwards it’s dilate 3 times a day for 15 minutes.
Please review an article we had published last year Non-grafted Vaginal Depth Augmentation for Transgender Atresia, Our Experience
