Dr. Reed, How soon would you be able to perform male to female transsexual gender reassignment vaginoplasty? I am entering high school and have been living as a female for 6 years. Saw pictures of transgender vaginoplasty on your web-site srsMiami.com/vaginoplasty. Brenda
Perhaps, I am more cautious than other transgender surgeons. This is irreversible surgery. Generally speaking perhaps once you are 18 or over. You will need 2 letters from therapists with doctoral degrees recommending you for surgery. While legally you are an adult at 18, I would also like to see parental support. You may gain some more weight and height in a few more years and be a safer surgical candidate. Also inverted adult sized penile skin will allow for a deeper vagina. Please get some other opinions.
