Second step phalloplasty - construction of the urethra

The construction of the urethra is a surgical procedure performed either simultaneously with a phalloplasty or during second intervention after phalloplasty.

Your surgeon will be able to tell you when it will be done. This procedure represents an important step as it will allow urine to flow through the tip of the phallus, making it possible for you to urinate standing up.

Additional information:

Please note that testicular implants cannot be inserted at the same time as construction of the urethra. This should be done only after the operated area has completely healed, which takes about 6 months.
