Author information

  • 1Department of Plastic Surgery, Eastern Virginia Medical School, Norfolk.


The increasing acceptance of the transsexual patient by society as well as a willingness of insurance companies to compensate for associated surgical procedures will result in an increase in patients presenting for sex reassignment. Data from gender identity centers suggest that the multidisciplinary approach leads to the best therapeutic results. Significant advances in phalloplasty techniques are yielding genitalia with more normal function and appearance.
