Penectomy Surgery: Gender Change Surgery
Penectomy (Penis Removal) is a surgical method to take out the penis to give the results of what the person wants. If the surgery is done without getting vaginoplasty, it’s referred to as nullification. If the individual is planning to get the vaginoplasty, they consider just getting the penectomy. While going to the next phase, the tissue is taken from the penis to preserve the vaginal area along the clitoris for the desired results. If you are thinking of getting this gender change surgery, then you must be careful about how to proceed further and what needs to be done next.

One of the main aims of penectomy is to create a shallow vaginal dimple, and then a new urethral opening is made, which helps in urination while sitting in a simple position.
