Orchiectomy is the removal of testes. All other tissues and parts of the genitals remain. Many people who seek elimination of testosterone production without undergoing full genital reconstruction pursue this procedure. This procedure can be done under general or local anesthesia.
Orchiectomy is generally performed for trans women who would like to avoid, or stop, taking testosterone blockers which can have significant long term side effects or who simply wish to improve the dysphoria associated with the testicles. Testosterone production stops immediately with removal of the testes and accelerates the feminizing effects of estrogen therapy and induces feminization in those who cannot use estrogen due to expense or medical contraindications.
Our doctors at Skin Arts Aesthetics will also perform Orchiectomy for males who wish to remain male with a recommendation from a licensed mental health professional. For trans women who do not plan to pursue Vaginoplasty in the future we remove the scrotal skin, leaving a very light, thin scar and a smooth area from the base of the penis to the anus. For those who are considering vaginal creation in the future we will leave the scrotal skin in place and make a small incision through the middle of the scrotum to perform the Orchiectomy. The scrotal skin will retract, or shrink towards the body, after removal of the testes.
