Effectiveness of Preoperative Depilation of the Urethral Donor Site for Phalloplasty: Neourethral Hair Growth and its Effects on Voiding
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › Academic › peer-review
Preoperative laser depilation of the urethral donor site for phalloplasty reduces subsequent hair growth. On average, six laser cycles are necessary. Neourethral hair appears to have no influence on voiding. We advise annual urethroscopic follow-up in cases with high urethral hair density.
