hi there,
am dr.surendran
nice to meet you here in HCMagic
i completely understand your problem
Phalloplasty refers to the construction (or reconstruction) of a penis or, sometimes, artificial modification of the penis by surgery, often for cosmetic purposes. It is also occasionally used to refer to penis enlargement
It is able to achieve the 12 major aesthetic and functional goals of modern penile reconstruction— a penis that:

is large, with substantial volume
enables safe insertion of a prosthesis
is hairless
has satisfactory aesthetic appearance
has normally colored skin
has both penile tactile and erogenous sensation
has a competent neo-urethra with a meatus at the top of the glans
can have sexual intercourse
leaves no conspicuous, disfiguring scars at the donor site
has very low occurrence of disease or other complication
achieves patient satisfaction
improves quality of life
the cost usually depends on the procedure you prefare, usually uppto $10000
