Scrotal Webbing

Over time, scrotal skin can stretch and lose the natural elasticity it once had, and cause embarrassment, and discomfort in clothing as well as exercise. We understand the sensitive and private nature of this problem and our team of experienced and professional cosmetic surgeons have years of experience performing Scrotal Uplift’s, and can effectively improve the appearance and discomfort associated with lax scrotal skin.

This is a condition whereby the scrotal skin extends beyond it normal boundaries and attaches itself to the penile shaft causing what is termed scrotal webbing. This can occasionally extend up to the head of the penis. This can cause discomfort and distress during intercourse; difficulty with placing condoms and/or during exercise, whereby the skin can be caught or trapped. 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.

The causes can be congenital or secondary to previous surgical procedures that have resulted in excess scarring. On a physiological level the weight of the testicles which are anchored on the penis modify the angulation of the penis downwards.

Addresses Scrotal webbing & scrotal laxity

Is this right for me?

If you have webbing of the shaft of the penis and laxity of skin on the front of the scrotum, then this surgery will be ideal to not only increase the apparent visual length of the penis and reduce the amount of extra skin between the shaft and the scrotum.

If there is overall skin excess in addition to the webbing then an uplift procedure is also incorporated to lift the scrotum and reduce the amount it hangs. This reduces the tension on the skin and improves the laxity that develops here over time.

The procedures are done together or staged procedures. This will depend on the extent of skin that requires removal. Your surgeon will discuss these options with you and determine whether a one- or two- stage procedure is required.

What does this involve?

The surgery releases the webbing on the shaft of your penis. You can have a simultaneously uplift at the same time. You have a local anaesthetic. This involves a numbing cream which helps to reduce the pain of the subsequent injections. The surgery will take about 60 - 90 minutes. Your scars are along the natural skin lines. Therefore once healed, you will not notice them.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recovery like?

You will be swollen and bruised for atleast 1 week. The swelling will gradually improve. Most patients require simple painkillers (paracetamol and ibuprofen) to ease the pain/ discomfort.

We advise to sleep with the legs elevated or lifting the edge of the bed up slightly. this will help with drainage of the area and reduce swelling. We suggest to avoid intercourse/ masturbation for at least 4 weeks to allow the wounds to settle.
