A transgender woman had a vagina constructed using the skin of a tilapia fish after her genitals began to shrink and close up following botched surgery, The SunÂ reported.
The complex procedure is called neovaginoplasty, used a tubular-shaped acrylic mold wrapped with the skin of the freshwater fish in the form of a biological prosthesis to rebuild and extend the vaginal canal in a three-hour operation.
According to surgeons, Maju, has the chance of a â€śproper sex lifeâ€ť and a boost of confidence thanks to the sea creatureâ€™s skin.
Maju said: â€śI was the fourth person in Brazil in 1999 to have, what was then, experimental surgery. But 10 years ago I developed vaginal stenosis. The opening of my vagina started to get narrower and shorter and the canal collapsed.â€ť
