Having spent many years consulting with some of the worlds most highly respected SRS surgeons I had finally come to a fully informed professional conclusion that Dr Suporn in Chonburi Thailand was the only one that guaranteed my expected outcome of a fully functioning neo vagina that would be cosmetically near natal in appearance.
I had my primary surgery on 1st September 2006 and Yes, the recovery and dilation schedule is very time consuming and painful however the results more than made up for it.
Dr Suporn did indeed give me 9 inches of fully functional depth. I am extremely senate through vaginal penetration and through cliteral stimulation.
I had a revision on 2nd of July 2015 for purely cosmetic reasons . I had an upper and lower commissure labia minora extension and cliteral repositioning and urithal erectial tissue reduction.

3 Weeks post op
Well, it's exactly 3 weeks from my revision surgery. Being back in London and with a structured routine of daily once dilation of 20 minutes with the medium then 10 minutes with the large dilator.
This is vital not to maintain depth as I am nearly 8 years post SRS surgery but to stop the vaginal opening from constricting along the z plasty incision lines.
My clitiral and labia minora sutures are still fully intact and are really irritating me as I wait for them to dissipate over time. Others around my vaginal opening have dissipated and there is some slight skin separation but no bleeding this is normal as there are deep muscle and fascia sutures still holding the wound closed. Dr Suporn's Z plasty skin layer closure by healing by secondary intention. This helps in keeping the vaginal opening elastic, stretchy, soft and pliable. This really is were Dr Suporn's surgical technique comes into its own. It mimics that of a cis gendered vulva opening that can stretch to give birth to a baby .
The wound care and douching is still paramount. Hibiscrub and silver sulfadiazine help with the wounds healing from secondary intention.
Panty liners in underwear during the day and at night no underwear just let the wounds breathe.
I shall post some more images when i am at 6 weeks
My 10 week update
As you can see I am still swollen and still have dissolvable sutures in situ which will dissipate over time.
Still dilating to keep the vaginal orifice pliable.
I will update at 3 months post op
Vaginal pigment enhancement.
I have had medical tattooing to enhance my labial pigmentation which adds dimension to the vulva.
