Thank you for your question.  A scrotoplasty is the development of scrotum from the labia majora with the assistance of the insertion of testicular implants after a metoidioplasty or phalloplasty.  The surgery involves dissecting, rotating and descending the labia majora from their original position.   Then pockets are created in them with incisions to insert testicular implants.  I would recommend finding an experienced cosmetic genital surgeon.  At our Institute, we have a dedicated center for FTM surgery.  

Best of luck.
