This article focuses on flap-related complications after creation of a neophallus for transgender individuals. It outlines the most frequently used flaps for this procedure and how flap-related complications can affect the overall outcome of the phalloplasty. With surgeons staging the procedure in different stages, it is important to understand the different strategies and the implication a flap-related complication can have on the end result and how it may be prevented.
