This procedure results in a normal, but very small, appearing penis. The suspensory ligament is released to allow more functional length, and the labial ligaments are divided to allow the penis to come forward and unrestricted natural erections.  The skin surrounding the shaft and glans is elevated and wrapped around the shaft of the penis and the ligaments and dorsal suspensory tissue is used to thicken up the shaft of the penis.


Liposuction contouring and additional excision of tissue if needed, to create a male appearing chest. Can be done with or without nipple reconstruction to relocate and downsize the nipple areolar complex.


Formation of an extended urethra through the neophallus.
