The scrotum contains the testicles and other structures involved in reproduction. Abnormalities of the scrotum may be a result of congenital (present since birth) issues, previous surgery, weight loss, aging or injury to the genitalia. Abnormalities of any scrotum can also involve the penis.
Webbed penis, also known as penoscrotal fusion or web, is a condition of the skin of the scrotum extending onto the penis resulting in the appearance of a small penis. The causes for a webbed penis include congenital and noted at birth or result from excessive removal of penile skin when circumcised. This penile condition can result in the scrotum being pulled up onto the penile shaft with erections.
Dr. Jeffrey Palmer developed the 2-Point Repair™ technique of the webbed penis is a less invasive technique to correct this condition. This outpatient surgical technique involves only two internal dissolvable stitches to address this penile issue.
Enlargement of the scrotum can be congenital and result from aging and previous hydrocele, hernia or varicocele. Scrotal enlargement can result in difficulties with male hygiene, and discomfort, problems or embarrassment during intimacy, sexual intercourse, exercise or when wearing tight clothing or bathing suits, which can result in a noticeable bulge.
Scrotoplasty involves scrotum reduction and/or scrotal lift to improve scrotal enlargement and redundant scrotal skin. Dr. Palmer's experience and expertise in scrotal surgery and minimizing scars of the genitalia allows for scrotoplasty to be performed to elevate the scrotum, remove excess scrotal tissue and improve the cosmetic result.
Penoscrotal transposition (scrotal engulfment) is a condition of the scrotum being partially or completely above the penis. This cosmetic condition can affect one’s self-esteem, self-image and self-confidence, and interfere with one’s intimate and personal relationships.
Dr. Palmer's experience and expertise in penile and scrotal surgery and minimizing scars of the genitalia allows for scrotoplasty to be performed with the reposition of scrotal tissue from above the penis to a more normal anatomic position to improve the cosmetic result.
Men undergo genital piercing of the scrotum and penis. There are a number of reasons why a man chooses to have genital piercing repair, including: 1) Tearing due to sexual intercourse and other physical trauma; 2) piercing holes widening over time; and, 3) changing of mind about a genital piercing.
Surgical intervention can be performed to address the cosmetic issues resulting from scrotal piercing that tears, widens or is unwanted. Dr. Jeffrey Palmer is a highly-trained reconstructive urologist with a vast experience in genital reconstruction. Dr. Palmer surgically repairs the issues associated with scrotal piercing by paying attention to detail.
