PHALLOPLASTY FOR GENDER AFFIRMATION

Phalloplasty is a complex surgical procedure designed to create or reconstruct a penis, primarily for transgender men or individuals born with genital abnormalities. The process involves using a combination of tissue grafts, implants, and microsurgery techniques to form a functional and aesthetically pleasing phallus.
