A penile prosthesis is a device that is implanted into your penis to help treat erectile dysfunction. Penile prostheses may consist of bendable rods that enable the penis to remain semi-rigid at all times, or inflatable inserts that use an external pump to help achieve an erection when desired. Penile prostheses are used when other approaches such as medication prove ineffective in treating erectile dysfunction.
Phalloplasty is a procedure that's used to alter the appearance of the penis, usually to enlarge the penis or to repair or reconstruct the penis after trauma, as a result of a birth defect or for other reasons. Phalloplasty is also used in transgender surgeries. Techniques may use grafts from other areas of the body or from tissue banks, or they may simply remodel existing tissue. Today's penile rejuvenation techniques are far more effective and less invasive for superior results and greater self-confidence.
Scrotum plasty refers to surgical procedures to remodel or restore the appearance of the scrotum. It's often used to reduce the size of an enlarged scrotum or to repair defects following injury or surgery for varicocele or other issues. It can also be performed in combination with testicular prostheses to reconstruct the scrotum following testicle removal due to cancer or other causes. Scrotum plasty doesn't just address aesthetic concerns; it can also help treat pain and other issues that develop when a distorted or “stretched out” scrotum fails to provide adequate support for the testicles.
The removal of moles, skin tags and lesions from the penis and scrotum uses many of the same methods as elsewhere on the body, including state-of-the-art surgical techniques designed to minimize the risk of scarring. The type of treatment used will depend on the size and exact location of the lesion, tag or mole.
