The first reports on gender-confirming surgery had been published in Germany in the 1920s, but it took some 30 years before sex reassignment surgery for transsexuals became generally known. Initially, such surgery was performed mostly in Europe and Casablanca. In 1956, the gynecologist Dr Georges Burou (1910–1987) independently developed the anteriorly pedicled penile skin flap inversion vaginoplasty in his Clinique du Parc in Casablanca. This technique was to become the gold standard of skin… 
Aesthetic and Functional Outcomes of Neovaginoplasty Using Penile Skin in Male-to-Female Transsexuals.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that, despite relatively low FSFI scores, this group of transgender women is very satisfied with both the functional and aesthetic results of neovaginoplasty using penile skin inversion.
The Penile Inversion Vaginoplasty. From the Functional to the Desired
Introduction: Gender reassignment surgery is the keystone of the treatment of transgender patients. For male-to-female transgenders this involves the creation of a neovagina. Many surgical methods
Outcome of Vaginoplasty in Male-to-Female Transgenders: A Systematic Review of Surgical Techniques.
TLDR
This systematic review gives a detailed overview of the published outcomes of all currently available techniques for vaginoplasty in male-to-female transgenders and concludes the penile skin inversion technique is the most researched surgical procedure.
Penile Inversion Vaginoplasty with or without Additional Full-Thickness Skin Graft: To Graft or Not to Graft?
TLDR
The authors can confirm neither of the suggested arguments, for or against full-thickness skin graft use, in penile inversion vaginoplasty, nor does it affect the patient- and physician-reported aesthetic or functional outcome.
Vaginal Canal Reconstruction in Penile Inversion Vaginoplasty with Flaps, Peritoneum, or Skin Grafts: Where Is the Evidence?
TLDR
Skin grafts, scrotal flaps, urethral Flaps, and peritoneal Flaps may be used to augment neovaginal canal dimensions with minimal donor-site morbidity.
Genitoplasty in male-to-female transsexuals
TLDR
The aim is to evaluate current articles and assess scientific validity of the recent literature of male-to-female gender-reassignment surgery and to evaluate long-term and medium-term surgical outcomes and describe surgical complications.
Laparoscopic rectosigmoid flap vaginoplasty
TLDR
The laparoscopic rectosigmoid flap technique of vaginoplasty allowed less morbidity and excellent aesthetic and functional postoperative outcomes and in one case the original columnar cell of the intestinal mucosa had been transformed to stratified squamous cell tissue.
Transrectal Ultrasound Guided Hydrodistension - A New Surgical Way in Transgender Surgery.
TLDR
HST is a safe and feasible procedure, which facilitates a safe preparation of the neovaginal canal during male to female GGAS and potentially helps to avoid complications such as rectal injury.
Long-Term Outcomes of Rectosigmoid Neocolporrhaphy in Male-to-Female Gender Reassignment Surgery
TLDR
The authors believe the rectosigmoid transfer is safe and efficacious, and it should be offered to male-to-female patients for primary vaginoplasty in transsexual patients.
A Single-center Analysis on the Learning Curve of Male-to-Female Penoscrotal Vaginoplasty by Multiple Surgical Measures.
TLDR
An evident LC for PSV is detectable, consisting of at least 40 cases needed to the surgical team to develop adequate skills to guarantee a safe and high-quality procedure.
