Why is it done?
Patients often require or seek a revision procedure due to less than satisfactory results from the original procedure. Common reason include:
• Unsatisfactory cosmetic appearance
• Skin tightness
• Too much residual foreskin
• Bridging of the skin (either between the abdomen and the penis, or the penis and scrotum, or both)
• Abnormal scarring
• Infection following the initial procedure
• Buried stitches that can be uncomfortable or palpable
• Odema of the shaft skin
• Buried penis
How is it done?
The aim of the procedure is to treat the patients main concerns and allow them to return to normal sexual activity and function. With this in mind and depending on the nature of the problem, techniques include revising the scar, removing excess skin, and grafting the penis (with skin from other areas of the body) to name a few. Its performed under general anaesthetic by one of our two leading andrologists and the vast majority of our patients go home the same day.
