Abstract

 

OBJECTIVE
To examine the early and late surgical outcomes of feminizing genitoplasty (FG) in adult transsexuals in a UK single surgeon practice over a 10-year period.

PATIENTS AND METHODS
Computerized and manual databases were searched over the period 1994–2004 to identify patients who had undergone male to female FG. Case-notes were retrieved and analysed to identify epidemiological data, the number and type of perioperative problems, early results at outpatient review, late occurring problems and patient satisfaction. A telephone questionnaire was then conducted targeting all FG patients in our series.

The questions were directed at identifying surgical complications, outcome and patient satisfaction.
