Penile prosthesis implantation in a transsexual neophallus
Reconstruction surgery for a female to male transsexual usually involves mastectomy, hysterectomy and creating an aesthetically appealing neophallus.
We have successfully inserted an inflatable prosthesis using the AMS CX prosthesis in a 45 year old transsexual, who had a large bulky neophallus constructed from the anterior abdominal subcutaneous fat, about 9 years ago.
The single cylinder CX prosthesis was well anchored to the symphysis pubis using a dacron windsock tubing, the activation pump was placed in the dependent pouch of the right labium and the reservior in the usual perivesical space.
The patient subsequently had debulking procedure using liposuction to create a more aesthetic and functional phallus.
To date, the inflatable neophallus prosthesis is functioning well.
