    I've often wondered, when a gal decides to become a guy and they replace her vagina with a penis... how do they decide what size to give her/him? Do they just go for average? Are there medical guidelines? Does he/she get to choose?

    It doesn't work the way you think.

    Generally the doctors administer testosterone and DHT to enlarge the clitoris until it becomes functionally usable as a penis. Some patients have cosmetic surgery to create a scrotum.

    If the results aren't sufficiently masculine a patient might engage in 'packing' an artificial penis under his clothes. Through more extensive surgery, doctors can construct a neo-penis of average size by implanting a prosthesis. That can entail months of small surgeries and treatments, depending on what method the doctors use.

    TuckMeUnder is bang-on. And, just so you know OP, when someone is transitioning to become a man it's generally considered polite to use "he" "his" and "him" as the pronouns. I say that because I saw you struggling with the he/she business.
