Since the first penile reconstruction in 1936, various techniques of phalloplasty and urethroplasty have been developed. These advancements have paralleled those in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery and offer a complex patient population the opportunity of restoration of cosmetic and psychosexual function. The continuous evolution of these methods has resulted in constant improvement of the surgical techniques in use today. Here, we aim to describe a historical overview of phalloplasty and urethral (re)construction.
