Peritoneal Flap Vaginoplasty
Dr. Jun offers robotic Peritoneal Flap Vaginoplasty in both primary and repair cases (e.g. vaginal stenosis), and care for post-operative urethral complications. Peritoneal Vaginoplasty has the potential to offer a number of benefits:
- Self-lubricating lining with some elasticity
- More vaginal depth
- Requires less dilation, less douching
- Requires less pre-op hair removal
- Less risk of prolapse
- May be less risky than Sigmoid Colon Vaginoplasty, plus no odorous mucus discharge and no need to monitor colon pathology
Robotic-assisted Peritoneal Vaginoplasty reduces operative time by facilitating a dual-surgeon abdominal-perineal approach, lowering the risks associated with positioning-related complications, such as neuropathy.
Masculinizing Bottom Surgery in San Francisco
Metoidioplasty: From Simple Release to Full Metoidioplasty, your surgery can include any combination of Vaginectomy, Urethral Lengthening and Scrotoplasty. Some Metoidioplasty patients may benefit from a Monsplasty, or mons resection, which can help better position the phallus and scrotum.
Phalloplasty: Dr. Jun uses either the forearm (RFF) or thigh (ALT) donor sites. RFF is typically a 2-stage surgery, with implants put in at the second stage. ALT can be a 2- or 3-stage surgery, depending on the vascularity of the donor flap.
Testicular and/or Erectile Implants: can be done 9 months after Metoidioplasty or Phalloplasty with Scrotoplasty. Dr. Jun uses solid silicone testicular implants made by Alpha Aesthetics, and the malleable rod or 3-piece inflatable penile implants.
Dr. Jun operates at California Pacific Medical Center – Davies Campus and St. Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco, and Greenbrae Surgery Center and Bon Air Surgery Center in Greenbrae.
