If you have excess scrotal skin then you will know its no joke. Quite apart from the way your scrotum looks, it can be uncomfortable in underwear. Thankfully, there is a solution with a procedure performed by our Urologiosts called a Scrotoplasty.
Here are some of the most common questions we get asked about scrotoplasty:
Q: Can Scrotoplasty surgery be performed together with penis enlargement surgery ?
A: Yes this is possible. Many men wish to have a full cosmetic makeover of their genitals and these procedures usually top the list. Your Surgeon will discuss the prospect of having both a scrotoplasty and penis enlargement surgery together at your consultation
Q: How can I know if I am suitable for scrotoplasty ?
The Urologist will need to see you for consultation and he will conduct an examination as part of this. Most men complain of too much skin in the scrotum and this leads to embarrassment and quite often discomfort.
Q: Will I be asleep for the surgery ?
A Usually a general anaesthetic is used for scrotoplasty surgery. This will ensure a comfortable experience for the surgery.
Q: Is this a long operation ?
A: Not at all. In most cases the operation takes no more than one hour.
Q: Will my partner know that I have had surgery done
A: Scars are nicely concealed in the central fold of the scrotum. The scars will be somewhat red at first but this will fade over the coming months.
Q: How much time do I need off work ?
A: This depends somewhat on the type of work that you do. If you have a desk bound job then you should be back at work within a matter of a few days. If you work is very physical then you should allow 10 to 14 days recovery. In any event avoid gym and sports for six weeks and seek the advice of your Surgeon in terms of when you can return to sexual activity.
Q: What Can I expect from Scrotoplasty surgery ?
A: You can expect the loose skin to have been removed and a much more comfortable feeling in the genital area. The area will look much more “tightened up”. Some men say their penis looks longer after the hanging loose skin of the scrotum has been removed.
Q: What are the risks of Scrotoplasty surgery?
A: All surgery carries risk. Scrotoplasty surgery also carries some risks. Most patients have Scrotoplasty with no complications at all. Your Surgeon will explain the risks of the procedure at consultation. However some of the more well known associated risks include, infection, bruising and swelling, poor scarring.
Q: Will I need to have the procedure done again ?
A: It is highly unlikely that you will need the procedure repeated.
