HYSTERECTOMY AND ADNEXECTOMY IN BARCELONA
These two surgical techniques, hysterectomy and adnexectomy, are an integral part of female-to-male transgender surgery and are performed sequentially. Hysterectomy is performed with precision and care to remove the uterus, followed by adnexectomy, which involves removing the ovary and fallopian tubes. This is an essential intervention for the creation of male genitalia. This surgery is very safe and plays a significant role in the desired gender transition by providing a better quality of life and emotional well-being.
It is essential to have a medical team specialised and experienced in transgender surgery, as their knowledge and experience will allow them to obtain the best result and provide appropriate and personalised care.
The best gynaecological surgeons, and international references, are prepared to perform hysterectomy and adnexectomy in the safest way for each patient, with the best aesthetic and functional results.
WHAT ARE HYSTERECTOMY AND ADNEXECTOMY?
1 - Hysterectomy
First, the expert surgeon performs the hysterectomy, surgically removing the uterus, and eliminating an organ that does not correspond to male gender identity.
2 - Adnexectomy
This is followed by adnexectomy, which is the surgical removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes. This step is essential to remove the female reproductive structures and contribute to the creation of male genitalia.
3 - Adjustment of structures
After hysterectomy and adnexectomy, adjustments are made to neighbouring structures, such as the urethra and rectum, to achieve proper alignment with male gender identity.
4 - Closure and sutures
After making the necessary adjustments, the incision is closed and the corresponding sutures are made, ensuring proper healing and recovery.
5 - Recovery and follow-up
After hysterectomy and adnexectomy, a recovery period is provided, which varies according to the individual characteristics of each patient. During this time, it is important to follow medical instructions and follow-up care to ensure a successful recovery.
