What reassurances for I have with GCS,GRS at London Transgender Surgery?

Published on January 12, 2018 by

At LTS, we understand that your desire to have MtF GCS, GRS surgery can be a daunting and anxious time for you. Our aim is to fully understand your concerns and goals and discuss all the options before agreeing a treatment plan which is in your best interest. Mr Inglefield and his teams expertise in MtF GCS, GRS surgery will ensure your safe and excellent outcome. We will provide you with all the information you need and support you before, during and after your surgery.

At the time of GCS, GRS, the testes are removed (orchidectomy) and the penis is excised (penectomy). The new vagina (Neovagina) is created utilising all of the penile skin and a paddle shaped flap of skin from the posterior surface of the scrotum, sack. This is referred to as the “Peno-scrotal technique” This technique ensures that the neovagina has good depth and calibre(size) to allow normal vaginal intercourse. The new urethral opening, meatus (for urinating) is fashioned and the labia are created using the anterior scrotal skin. Clitoroplasty can either be cosmetic or functioning using a “sensate glans flap” taken from the glans of the penis.

The majority of Transgender individuals will achieve a good functioning neovagina with the peno-scrotal technique with a depth of up to 20 – 22cm. However, some individuals who do not have adequate penile and scrotal skin may require a colovaginoplasty which utilises a segment of the large intestine (bowel) to create the neovagina.

You should be aware that GCS, GRS once performed is totally irreversible and therefore it is our responsibility at London TransGender Surgery to ensure that GCS, GRS is always in your best interest.
