An aesthetically appealing neophallus with an urethral meatus at its tip is one of the goals of phalloplasty in female-to-male transsexuals.
From July 1993 to December 1996, 20 cases of female-to-male transsexuals who had received sculpting of glans in four different ways were enrolled. Their photographs were collected and were scored by independent surgical and non-surgical assessors. The Norfolk procedure creates a more normal neoglans assessed by patients themselves and by the assessors.
Split-thickness skin graft (SSG) produces a more normal-looking coronal sulcus than full-thickness skin graft (FTSG) in the Norfolk procedure.
