Masculinisation Surgery

At IM GENDER, we are a clinic specialised in masculinization surgery and are committed to providing a high-quality experience to our patients at every stage of their transformation process. Our team of surgeons and healthcare staff are here to support you every step of the way



    At IM GENDER, we offer a wide range of masculinization surgeries including phalloplasty, metoidioplasty, mastectomy, hysterectomy, body contouring and other gender affirmation surgeries tailored to meet all needs and preferences.

    • Phalloplasty: Phalloplasty is a procedure that allows for the reconstruction of a functional and sensitive neophallus that allows for bipedal urination and erogenous sensitivity. At IM GENDER, we offer a variety of phalloplasty options to choose from.
    • Metoidioplasty: This is a genital masculinization surgery that creates a functional micropenis from the clitoris. This organ has a very high erogenous sensitivity, but it does not allow for sexual penetration.
    • FTM top surgery: Mastectomy is a gender affirmation surgery that involves the removal of breasts. At IM GENDER, we offer the periareolar technique, the extended periareolar technique and the free graft technique, according to your needs.
    • Hysterectomy: It is a surgical intervention that involves the removal of the uterus. This surgery is common in female-to-male gender reassignment, and our surgeons have extensive experience in this procedure.
    • Body masculinization surgery: In addition to the specific surgeries mentioned above, at IM GENDER we also offer body masculinization surgeries to help you achieve the masculine look you desire. These surgeries may include liposuction, pectoral augmentation and abdominoplasty.
    • Other male surgeries: We also offer a variety of other masculinization surgeries, including post-phalloplasty aesthetics, vaginectomy, testicular prosthesis and voice surgery. If you are interested in any of these options, please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

    In each of these male surgeries, we use advanced technology and specialised surgical techniques to ensure our patients receive the best possible results.


    The postoperative care for masculinization surgery can be a delicate process that requires special attention. It is important to follow medical recommendations to achieve a successful recovery and avoid complications. Additionally, it is important to maintain hygiene in the operated area and have a good diet to aid in wound healing.
    It is normal to experience pain and discomfort in the first few days after surgery, but these symptoms should decrease over time. If there are any complications or unusual symptoms, do not hesitate to inform our medical team immediately to receive appropriate care.


    The recovery after surgery may vary depending on the type of operation. Usually it takes approximately 4 to 8 weeks. Some tips for after masculinization surgery include:

    • Adequate rest: It is important to rest sufficiently after surgery to allow your body to recover.
    • Take prescribed medications: Carefully follow the plastic surgeon’s instructions regarding prescribed medications to control pain and prevent infections.
    • Follow wound care instructions: Keep wounds clean and dry, and change dressings as needed.
    • Avoid strenuous activities: Avoid doing strenuous activities and lifting heavy objects for several weeks after surgery.
    • Stay hydrated and eat well: Ensure that you maintain good hydration and eat a healthy diet to help your body recover.


    As in any surgery, there are always certain risks and extreme caution must be taken, following the instructions and care recommended by the surgeon. These are the main risks derived from these kind of treatments:

    • Risks of bleeding and infection.
    • Reaction to anaesthesia.
    • Seroma or fluid accumulation under the skin.
    • Bad healing.
    • Tissue necrosis in areas such as the penis or reconstructed nipples.
    • Urinary problems after genital surgery.


    How long will it take me to recover from masculinization surgery?
