Genital Electrolysis Hair Removal
for Sex Reassignment Surgery
The recommended area
The perineum is the short stretch of skin between the anus and the posterior part of the scrotum.
If you have much hair in this area you should consider genital electrolysis hair removal before sex reassignment surgery. To avoid possible hair growth around the vaginal opening (not inside the deep part of your vagina).
Please note that that this hair removal can also be done after SRS without any difficulty, and the timing of the hair removal either before or after surgery will NOT affect the outcome of the SRS surgery according to Doctor Chettawut’s technique. Therefore you can freely choose to do this or not before surgery. If you choose to have electrolysis hair removal then all hair should be fully removed by 2 months before your surgery date.
Electrolysis is usually not a one time procedure and you need to discuss how many sessions and how long the hair removal may take with your electrolysis technician.
Laser or IPL hair reduction processes may not remove all the hair in this area and electrolysis is more reliable and Doctor Chettawut’s opinion is the best way for hair removal on the suggested area.
