What are the potential risks and complications associated with phalloplasty?

Phalloplasty is a complex surgery with a number of potential risks and complications. Some of the most common risks include:
  • Infection: The skin near the incision and the urethra are common areas for infection. This can be serious and can lead to further complications, such as tissue loss or sepsis.
  • Partial phallic loss: If the neopenis does not maintain adequate blood flow, it cannot survive. This is a rare complication, but it can happen.
  • Urethral stricture: Inadequate blood flow can cause scar tissue to form in the urethra. This can slow or block the release of urine.
  • Urinary fistula: An abnormal connection may form between the urinary tract and a nearby organ, like the bowel, or the outside world. This can cause urine to leak.
  • Hematoma: This is a collection of blood under the skin. It can be painful and may require surgery to drain.
  • Seroma: This is a collection of fluid under the skin. It is usually harmless and will go away on its own.
  • Nerve damage: This can cause numbness or tingling in the neopenis. It is usually temporary, but in some cases it can be permanent.
  • Scarring: The donor site and the neopenis will both scar. The scarring may be noticeable, but it will usually fade over time.
  • Dissatisfaction with the results: Some people may not be satisfied with the size, shape, or function of their neopenis. This is a rare complication, but it can be emotionally difficult.

The success rate of phalloplasty is high, but it is important to be aware of the risks and complications before undergoing the surgery. If you are considering phalloplasty, talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of the procedure.
