Integra for RFF Phalloplasty #trans

Made a new info-doodle this week about “dermal regeneration templates”(DRT) a wound healing technology. Some people find it a helpful option to research. A common brand discussed is Integra, but that’s not the only type.

DRTs guide tissue growth to reduce scar contracture, among other benefits. There are pros and cons, and I respect t it is an individual decision. For myself, it made a big difference, and I am so grateful I was given the option.

This is Version 2, with a first footnote added about the branding vs trans colloquial use of the word Integra. I added a second note in the large blue side panel about accuracy and courtesy. It outlines how this drawing must not be used, to avoid misunderstanding or doing harm to others.
