Radiologist 's  Response
thanks for choosing transplantation is a surgical transplant procedure in which a penis is transplanted to a patient. The penis may be an allograft from a human donor, or it may be grown artificially, though the latter is untested in humans. It has been done in several countries wherein the penis was amputated or diseased etc..It has as much legal implications as any other organ transplant.
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.
