A transgender person has shared their experience after receiving an experimental new surgery that involves removing the entirety of their external genitals.

Adrian, 27, from Florida, is non-binary - meaning they do not conform to either male or female - and had the operation at a controversial gender clinic in Texas that has been dubbed 'Frankenstein's lab'.

It is one of a handful hospitals in the country that offer genital nullification surgery - a procedure which involves removing all external genitalia to create a smooth transition down from the stomach to the groin.

A small but hidden opening remains in order for urine to exit the body. Those born biologically female undergo a hysterectomy, which stops them menstruating.  

'I had to use a catheter the first two weeks but I am peeing normally now,' Adrian said two months after the operation. 

They describe the procedure, which cost $10,000 up front, as a 'body modification journey' that will transform them into a 'non-normative human.'

Adrian, 27, from Florida, documented their experience of the genital removal procedure, also known as Nullo, or Eunuch procedures, on Reddit.

They said their motivation for getting the procedure, performed at the Crane Center last year, was 'dysphoria' - defined as a feeling of discomfort or distress suffered by those whose gender identity does not match their sex.

They opted for nullification because they could not afford a phalloplasty (surgery to construct an artificial penis) or metoidioplasty, which uses a hormonally enlarged clitoris as the body of the penis.

Adrian said they have a 'desire to look as alienesque as possible', also expressing an interest in the removal of their belly button.

Adrian was born a woman, and began taking testosterone hormones aged 23 in August 2020. 

In 2021, they had top surgery and also completely removed their nipples. Having their nipples removed 'also played a role in my desire for nullification,' Adrian said.

'I came out fully as a queer binary trans man shortly after top surgery,' they wrote on Reddit.

In 2021, they had top surgery to remove their nipples to create a more non-binary look.

A less common genital procedure that Dr Crane did not detail is called penile splitting, a type of body modification that splits the penis into two separate sections at various points. It is not known if the clinic performs this

For those born female, the genital nullification procedure can include removal of the vagina, vulva and clitoris. However some patients may opt to keep the clitoris to maintain sexual sensation. 

Women also undergo a hysterectomy beforehand, which is an operation to remove all or part of the uterus. The procedure not only stops the menstrual cycle but also kicks the patient into an immediate menopause, where patients may have to put up with menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats for several months or even years.
