OUR MASCULINISATION SURGERIES
At IM GENDER, we offer a wide range of masculinisation surgeries including phalloplasty, metoidioplasty, mastectomy, hysterectomy, body contouring and other gender affirmation surgeries tailored to meet all needs and preferences.
- Phalloplasty: Phalloplasty is a surgery 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 masculinisation 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 masculinisation surgery: In addition to the specific surgeries mentioned above, at IM GENDER we also offer body masculinisation surgeries to help you achieve the masculine look you desire. These surgeries may include liposuction, pectoral augmentation and abdominoplasty.
- Other malesurgeries: We also offer a variety of other masculinisation surgeries, including post-phalloplasty aesthetics, vaginectomy, testicular prostheses 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.
