Are there any requirements like a certain BMI or weight for phalloplasty?

It’s recommended to have BMI within normal range for phalloplasty procedure. In obese (overweight) patients the procedure is more complicated: creation of adequate MLD flap and neophallus with adequate dimensions is harder to perform, as well as direct closure of the donor site. Some postoperative complications as prolonged healing and cicatrization refer to obesity.
