Title
Improved sexuality and satisfactory lubrication after genital affirmation surgery using penile skin inversion in transgender women : a satisfaction study
Author
Abstract
Introduction: Genital affirmation surgery (GAS) requests are consistently in- creasing in demand. The gold standard is penile skin inversion, using cutaneous grafting for neovagina creation. The aim is to achieve the most realistic results both physically and functionally. Different studies have contradictory results, and the use of lubrication is insufficiently clear, while the use of sigmoidoplasty has been defended for constant lubrication. Aims: Our aim was to evaluate transgender women's sexual function and lubrication after vaginoplasty by penile skin inversion.Methods: We performed a prospective study on 45 patients who underwent primary penile inversion vaginoplasty. Participants answered two questionnaires during the follow-up con-sultation: the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) and an 18-item custom questionnaire.
