What are the common symptoms?
This can cause discomfort and distress during intercourse. Most commonly, patients describe difficulty during exercise and/ or discomfort on wearing a condom, whereby the skin can be caught or trapped. The causes can be congenital or secondary to previous surgical procedures that have resulted in excess scarring.
In addition to this, the visual perception of a shorter penile length due to the excess skin can be of concern as men do not like to look shorter. On a physiological level the weight of the testicles which are anchored on the penis can markedly modify the angulation of the penis downwards. Release of the webbing will reduce this restriction.
