Find Metoidioplasty Surgeons & Info
Metoidioplasty is a Female-to-Male Sex Reassignment Surgery that's a good option for trans men seeking a less invasive and more affordable surgery than Phalloplasty. Average penis length from a "meta" is 1.5-2 inches.
How Metoidioplasty Works: Hormone Replacement Therapy, in the form of Testosterone and Dyhidrotestosterone (DHT), gradually enlarges the native clitoris to an average size of 1–2 in. Metoidioplasty Surgery involves cutting the surrounding labial tissues and suspensory ligament to "free up" and relocate the clitoris in a more forward position, to more closely approximate the position of a penis. Additional complimentary procedures are optional, including Vaginectomy, Urethroplasty, Scrotoplasty and Testicular Implants, and Mons Resection.
