Dr. Alter’s Before and After
BURIED/HIDDEN PENIS CORRECTIVE SURGERY – CHILD

Dr. Alter specializes in male genital surgery and has spent decades perfecting his reconstructive techniques. All patients featured in this gallery are unique and an individualized treatment plan was developed for each case.

MALE/CHILD

HIDDEN PENIS FIGURES

Figure 1
The typical patient with partial hidden or buried penis. The patient has a large pubic fat pad. The penis buries into the pubic fat and scrotal sack. The skin is not well attached to the underlying penile structures.

Figure 2
An incision is made above the pubic fat pad. If extra skin is present, some is excised. Fat is removed by a combination of liposuction and excision. The pubic skin is sutured to the underlying muscle to prevent it from sliding down and to prevent the penis from going inside the fat. This stabilizes penile skin to the penile shaft.

Figure 3
An incision is made above the pubic fat pad. If extra skin is present, some is excised. Fat is removed by a combination of liposuction and excision. The pubic skin is sutured to the underlying muscle to prevent it from sliding down and to prevent the penis from going inside the fat. This stabilizes penile skin to the penile shaft.

Figure 4
The patient at the end of the procedure. The pubic skin is anchored to the pubic muscles with pubic fat removed. The underside of the penis is anchored to skin at the junction of the penis and scrotum. The penoscrotal incision is closed with a zig-zag. Sometimes extra penoscrotal skin is removed.
