Total penile reconstruction is a challenging procedure considering the anatomy and physiology of the organ. A lot of penile reconstructions have been done in the past and many options have been considered, yet there are still problems associated with either function or aesthesis. Many options that were used are still leaving some dissatisfactory. The authors decided to use the anteromedial thigh flap for penile reconstruction which is not a common choice for total phalloplasty. The anteromedial thigh flap is a veritable tool in scrotoplasty. Thus, we present the use of double anteromedial thigh flaps for the reconstruction of the penis.
