Some trans people have vaginoplasty as a gender-affirmation treatment. Some benefits of this procedure may include the ability to have receptive vaginal sex, elimination of the need for genital tucking and decreased gender dysphoria.
This procedure involves removal of the penis, scrotum and testes (unless previously removed), and creation of a vagina, labia and clitoris using skin from the original genital tissues as well as the inner thighs if needed. The urethra is shortened. The prostate remains in place. This procedure results in permanent infertility.
