Metoidioplasty is a FTM sex reassignment surgery procedure that is an alternative to phalloplasty. Surgically, the procedure is quite different from phalloplasty, and metiodioplasty usually costs much less than phalloplasty.
The cost of metoidioplasty and associated procedures ranges from about $4,000 for a Simple Release to as much as $60,000 for a full Meta, with complication expenses and more. Fees can vary between Surgeons based on location and the procedures performed.
