I still don't understand that fixation with the hair removal. Modern cauterization devises have a setting for this, and they can prepare the skin flap on site. They did this with me. All the untreated hair is growing nicely back, and not a sign of hair growth in the cauterized areas.

I wish you lots of luck for your final inspection!

Because a surgeon can't be expected to hit 100% of the hair follicles in one pass, especially the one in the telogen (resting) phase where there is no hair in the follicle. Even some of the ones they do get can come back, as anyone who has had electrolysis done can attest. Hair follicles can be tough little bastards. It also could mean more time under anesthesia to allow for this to be done.

I for one did not want to risk hair growing in my vagina. I followed my surgeon's advice and had about six good clearings.

The surgical way of hair removal does not care in which growth phase the hair is, they simply cauterize every follicle present on a tissue flap. Most of the time a certain person of the surgical team is responsible for preparing a tissue flap, and during this preparation the follicles are also destroyed. When I was still involved in surgery, I came across some surgical assistants who were really good at that, and not a single follicle had a chance to survive. Newer cauterization equipment has even settings for this process.
It is, of course, important in doing what the surgeon says, their team may not have a specialist for flap preparation.

If you can't see a follicle you can't cauterize it. Dormant follicles are harder to see, increasng the chance they will be missed. I'm sure there are some very capable surgical assistants who are excellent at their jobs, but trans women who end up with hair in their vaginas from not doing electrolysis are known. I see their posts on Reddit.

It's a question of risk versus benefit and what you are comfortable with. I for one would always advise someone contemplating vaginoplasty to do genital hair removal. That's just my opinion. One nice benefit is I never have to shave down there. I happen to prefer a hairless vulva.

Me too Terri. I haven't had hair down there since 1992. I think I was the one who actually started the trend of shaving off all the hair downstairs. lol

It probably depends on the jungle one has down there. I don't believe in shaving the genital hair because it is more hygienic to have it there (enough documentation available on this), But I never had much, and my vulva is absolutely hairless. All the other hair is growing back nicely (mostly on my pelvic mount only), and covers the scars that were created to establish this mount.

Sorry Alexis, but I've been shaving from head to toe since 1975.

I never did believe the propaganda that said it's more hygienic with hair down there. I think those papers were just written by people who didn't want to take the time to shave their nether regions.

I've had quite a bit of experience dealing with people who have hair down there, and also even more people who don't have hair down there. Without a single doubt in my mind...the ones that smelled the absolute worst were covered with hair. The bald ones smelled fairly clean overall. I wasn't taking medical slides to test for hygiene on a microscope or anything, but my nose was telling me what was what.

Over the years I've really given this a lot of thought, and I came up with this little experiment, or maybe just a good way to explain how I feel about hair on one's nether regions. If someone gets a small drop of pee on their skin they would probably feel okay about themselves if they're able to wipe it off with a bit of toilet paper.

But if that same person gets that same drop of pee in their hair...well they're not gonna feel clean until after their next shower where they shampoo their hair.

That's my two cents on whether having hair is hygienic or not.

You are pretty wrong Lexxi. The drop of pee on your skin can get absorbed into the skin, the drop of pee on the hair will sit on the surface and can be wiped off there. If you came across smelly people with hair, they probably did not know that one can use soap and water down there!

I just wonder how you pee that drops of it can come onto your skin? I never had that problem. It is different now that I have a human rendition of a lawn sprinkler, but I also have a Bidet, and that takes are of this problem.
If you want to believe it or not, it seems to be pretty clear that hair in the nether region provides better hygiene than baby skin does!
And I am glad that mine is growing back nicely, and covering the less attractive scars I have down there.

It's approaching a decade since I've had any hair down there. Mostly electrolysis, some IPL. I haven't read much authoritative literature on health consequences or benefits, but it' definitely feels a whole lot more comfortable!

Did you all have/had so much hair that you could even feel it? I seem to hair deprived in my groin, too!!

The average woman can't use soap and water down below during their days. When they're at work, or shopping, or what have you, after they relieve themselves they wipe with toilet paper, pull up their panties, then smash that pee dampened hair right up against their skin. Again I don't believe the propaganda that hairy is better.

Plus I've always heard that urine is sterile...so I don't think it's causing a whole lot of infections between showers. When it's in hair it certainly smells bad though.

But I'll never have to worry about it because I won't have it growing on me.

Lexxi, the hair will not be dampened, because it's natural fat coating will prevent this. If mopped properly, it is gone! Scientific research papers are not propaganda, they are based on measurable facts!
Yes urine is sterile, it means it does not contain bacteria, as long as you do not have a UTI or similar, but it contains a lot of discarded biochemicals from your body, and they can cause problems.
Oh, by he way, after SRS you are not allowed to do ay hair removal down there!

It's a good thing I'll have it all gone by the time I have my surgery. Why in the world would they not let you have hair removal after surgery? That doesn't make any sense.
