More information

In scrotoplasty surgery, a scrotum is created. This is performed by reshaping and closing the labia majora together and then inserting testicular prostheses into the labia 1.

Often scrotoplasty will be performed during the same operation as metoidioplasty or during the process of phalloplasty.
