Get great results from reconstructive phalloplasty!
Dr. Krakovsky is a very compassionate and caring surgeon. He takes as much
time as necessary to be sure that the patient is provided with the answers he
needs to make the right choice. Dr. Krakovsky has also developed a number of
tools to help his patients to be fully informed and to feel confident about
their surgery. For example, he provides checklists of timelines and guidelines
to help you to stay on track with all aspects of pre-surgical and post-surgical
requirements, from registration information and when to start and stop eating
certain foods to what to pack for your overnight surgical stay, medical tests
that need to be taken, how to follow up after the surgery, and much more. As
soon as you become a patient of Dr. Krakovsky, you have access to the Patients
Only section of his website, where your Patient Passkey makes these documents
available to you.

As you can see, it is extremely important to choose a qualified surgeon for
this type of surgery, to learn about whether this surgery is right for you, and
to follow pre-operative and post-operative instructions closely. Reconstruction
of enlargement surgeries is a safe surgical procedure that provides excellent
results when performed by a qualified, trained surgeon. In 2005, Dr. Krakovsky
was awarded the Outstanding Professional Award as one of the
100 Best Cosmetic Surgeons of the Millennium by The Second World Congress on
Advanced Cosmetic Surgery. He is Vice President of the American Academy of
Phalloplasty Surgeons. His practice is in San
Diego, California. He follows the Academy’s standards and guidelines for the
safety of phalloplasty surgeries, and, as a qualified surgeon, has completed the
special phalloplasty surgery training the Academy requires for this surgery.
For your reconstruction surgery, you will need to be in San Diego the day before the surgery for your final pre-surgical appointment with Dr. Krakovsky and final preparations for the surgery, and you will need to stay overnight in San Diego after your surgery. The success of this surgery requires complete bed rest after the surgery and overnight. Usually, the patient must stay in the area for three to four days after the surgery, so that Dr. Krakovsky can guide, reassure, and tend to the patient during this time. Regular follow up with Dr. Krakovsky, either in person, or by phone or email is also critical to ensure that the healing process is proceeding as it should.
