METOIDIOPLASTY

Metoidioplasty is a surgical procedure used in gender-affirming surgery for transgender men. It involves enhancing the clitoris, which has been enlarged through hormone therapy, to create a phallus that resembles a small penis. The procedure allows the transgender man to have a more pronounced genital structure.

Each trans man has his own individual idea of what gender affirmation means. It may include hormones, surgery, a new name, or it might not entail any of these options. Our goal is to provide you with the tools you need to express your authentic identity and feel secure in your body. Metoidioplasty bottom surgery can be performed to create a neophallus (penis), offering you the opportunity to feel more aligned with your ideal self-image.

WHO CAN GET METOIDIOPLASTY?

Metoidioplasty is appropriate for individuals who wish to undergo bottom surgery in typically a single-stage treatment, who will be content with the size of the phallus resulting from the enlarged clitoris, and who would like to avoid the increased risk profile of phalloplasty.

Patients pursuing metoidioplasty should be healthy, both emotionally and physically, and they should have realistic expectations for their outcome after meeting with our team in LA.
