In the article, the authors offer a review of the modalities available for phalloplasty in transsexual patients. The classic methods for multi-stage transplantation of tubulized flaps in the lumbar and inguinal regions, in mid-thigh as well as current methods for one-stage reconstruction are discussed. The paper contains the case report of a transsexual patient undergoing one-stage reconstruction of the penis using m. rectus abdominis with the inferior pedicle, urethral reconstruction by a skin graft from simultaneous mastectomy with a free forearm flap covering the muscle. The paper examines the pros and cons of each method for reconstruction.
