A phalloplasty is the construction or reconstruction of a penis. The phalloplasty is a common surgical choice for transgender and nonbinary people interested in gender confirmation surgery. It’s also used to reconstruct the penis in cases of trauma, cancer, or congenital defect.
The goal of a phalloplasty is to build a cosmetically appealing penis of sufficient size that is capable of feeling sensations and releasing urine from a standing position. It’s a complex procedure that often involves more than one surgery.
Phalloplasty techniques continue to evolve with the fields of plastic surgery and urology. Currently, the gold standard phalloplasty procedure is known as a radial forearm free-flap (RFF) phalloplasty. During this procedure, surgeons use a flap of skin from your forearm to build the shaft of the penis.

I am able to provide colour correction, scar camouflage and even vein detailing to the penis. This is an amazing opportunity for either trans men or men recovering from cancer or sever trauma.
