Transgender $8,500 promo (FAQ) | Dr. Harold M. Reed | The Reed Centre for Transgender Surgery

Dear Dr. Reed,  Is your procedure a one stage transgender vaginoplasty approach and will I have vaginal moisture or be lubricated down there?   Cynthia

Dear Cynthia,  Yes, for the past 6 months we have been attempting to do all transgender vaginoplasty surgery in one-stage.  That means clitoral hood and closure of the anterior commissure.  So your labia look like mirror image parentheses, not a V or U. While there is typically some moisture, you may need to supplement this with a vaginal estrogen such as Estrace, which prompts vascularity.  During natal female arousal, the capillary beds open and a transudate (think serum like substance) exudes.  Contrary to traditional physiology teaching, thee are no glands or ducts making the “mucus”.  You may need to supplement whatever comes naturally with some lubrication such as KY jelly or oral sex.  I don’t recall any of our patients saying they are “dry” down there.

Please look at before and after male to female surgery pictures on our web-site srsMiami.com

Cordially,
