Male Genital Surgery Procedures

  • Penile girth enhancement: The increase in the penile girth and length is somewhat majority of men wants to achieve. But achieving such results is not really that easy as it includes numerous complications and may also give rise to various deformities. To increase the penile girth autologous fat transfer can serve the purpose. The best part of the procedure is the availability of the fats and fewer chances of fat reabsorption by the body. However, the obtained results highly vary on the expertise of the surgeon and the technique applied. The fat injections must be injected in small quantities by using multiple tunnels as that reduces the chances of secondary deformities and the formation of several nodules or irregularities may be visible. This will give rise to an asymmetric penis and loss of penile rigidity due to the accumulation of excess fat.
  • Hidden or buried penis- A hidden, buried or concealed penis is what that appears partially obscured or completely hidden within the pubic skin, fat or scrotum. However, some of the people may have a normal corporal length but its functional activities and appearance are hindered. However, there are many causes that cause the penile skin deficiency such as chronic inflammation, obesity, weight loss, etc. However, to rectify such condition, a moderate pubic fat can be reduced by following a liposuction. If the excess pubic skin is excised the suprapubic fat pad can also be removed. The surgery for hidden penis is very successful and the results are improved penile visual and functional length that improves the chronic issues associated with a severe or hidden penis.
  • Scrotal Reduction: With age or due to other issues like congenital laxity of the skin symptoms like the enlarged or low-hanging scrotum may be seen among the patients which may lead to self-consciousness and discomfort or even skin irritation. A horizontal excision is made in the middle area of the upper scrotum that allows the removal of the excess scrotal skin. An asymmetrical excision may be performed on the lower scrotal skin for the unilateral scrotal enlargement. Care must be taken to preserve the results and avoid the complications associated.
  • A penoscrotal web correction- The procedure is performed by extending the scrotal skin up to the ventral surface of the penile shaft. This causes the loss of the definition of the penoscrotal angle and may also give rise to issues while intercourse. The penoscrotal webbing in most of the cases are congenital or may also cause the over resection of the ventral penile skin from circum-section. A penoscrotal can be improved by the procedure that can actually lengthen the middle portion of the web and allow it to settle back towards the scrotum. The excess skin may also be removed in some cases. However, the procedure can be performed under local-anesthesia if the web is small but for larger webs, the skin can be removed only under general anesthesia. The treated area must be kept dry for 5 days after following the surgery and the sutures can dissolve within three 3 weeks. Strenuous activities must be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks after undergoing the surgery.
  • Testicular implants- Testicular implants are particularly for men who lack it since birth or had one or both the testicles removed for various reasons. The implants are available in various shapes and sizes to match it with the other side. The adolescents are also eligible for the surgery but only after they reach the maturity and undergoes no further changes. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes between one and half hours. The incisions are made at the top of the scrotum to make the scar less visible. Vigorous activities can be resumed after two weeks of following the procedure.

However, before undergoing any of the genital surgeries it is vital that you decide after gaining knowledge on the possible complications even though the chances are rare. So discuss all your aims and queries with your surgeon to get a satisfactory risk free result.
