Possible but diffic.: This will depend on the techniques used and in some cases itwill be nearly impossible to recinstruct a penis once it has been removed. The reconstruction will likely be a facsimile with a skin tube essentially substituting for erectile tissue. Once a vagina is obliterated, it will be very difficult to maintain the cavity that was once there. In short consider it nearly irreversible.

From the patient's: Own body. For male to female sex reassignment, the vagina is constructed of a skin lined tube or a length of the small bowel or colon. For female to male, the penis is constructed of tissue from the abdomen, arm or leg fashioned to approximate the appearance of a penis.
