Gender

Male to Female Gender Reassignment Surgery (MTF GRS) or Gender Confirmation Surgery aims to create a functional vagina with an external appearance as close as possible to that of a genetic female, together with the associated sensations and feelings.

Dr SanguanDr Sanguan achieves this via a two stage procedure, to ensure that the necessary scrotal skin graft for the vaginal tunnel are carried out after an initial healing process of approximately 7 days. Until the second stage, the bleeding occurring from the first stage surgery subside and stop completely and newly formed granulation tissue provides an abundant blood supply, thus reducing the possibility of the skin graft failing.

Dr Sanguan is a member of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) ( https://www.isaps.org/listing/dr-sanguan-kunaporn/). View profile and resume for Dr Sanguan.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

STAGE 1

  • The creation of a vaginal tunnel (Vaginoplasty)
  • The removal of the penis (Penectomy)
  • The removal of the testes (Orchidectomy)
  • The construction of clitoris, clitoris hood, and labia minora (Labiaplasty).
  • The construction of a new urethra opening (Urethroplasty)

Dr. Sanguan has improved MTF GRS techniques by using all of the sensitive skin from the corona ridge of Glans penis and prepuce skin cuff, with blood supply and nerves intact, to fashion the clitoris, clitoris hood and labia minora. By this process, the top of the glans becomes the neo-clitoris, and the underside forms the inner section of the labia minora – all preserved as one piece of skin. The color of the new labia minora will match that of the former prepuce skin. This new procedure significantly improves the external appearance of the new genitalia, as well as enhancing sensitivity.

STAGE 2 (after approx. 7 days)

Scrotal skin graft is used for lining the new vaginal tunnel.

Although many GRS surgeons discard excess scrotal skin, Dr. Sanguan has found it to graft successfully in the majority of cases, thus making additional skin grafts unnecessary. After the scrotal skin is removed during the first stage of surgery, it is safely refrigerated at 4 degrees Celsius (approximately 39 degrees Fahrenheit), where it will remain healthy for up to 2-3 weeks, far longer than necessary. Before grafting, Dr. Sanguan carefully scrapes the scrotal tissue to remove hair follicles, thus preventing hair growth inside the vagina. This technique means patients do not require expensive and sometimes painful scrotal electrolysis prior to GRS.

The average vaginal depth will be 4-5 inches when grafted from the available penile and scrotal skin.
