The technique Dr. Chen uses for glansplasty is a modification of the Norfolk technique, which involves creating a skin flap around the phallus that is rolled upon itself to create a ridge. The flap is then diagonally rolled on the underside of the phallus towards the midline to create an anatomic glans appearance. The area behind the ridge then requires a split thickness skin graft for coverage. This skin graft is harvested from the lower abdomen or groin crease. Sometimes, glansplasty is performed at time of phalloplasty (done by microsurgeon). Other times, it is performed 3 months after phalloplasty (reconstructive urologist or plastic surgeon).
