Cosmetic Male External Genital Procedures

Penile abnormalities can occur as a result of a birth (congenital) defect, or they can be the result of surgical procedures, such as circumcision. These abnormalities can cause a variety of emotional problems, like low self-esteem, and physical issues, like sexual dysfunction. Whether you want to appear more attractive, or simply want to improve your ability to perform, Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona has the tools and the technology to help. Doctors Jeffrey A. Stern and Aaron LaTowsky devote a large part of their urology practice strictly to men. Our Urologists specialize in health and aesthetic problems concerning the male genital system, erectile dysfunction, and male infertility.

Conditions that affect genital male aesthetics and that are effectively treated at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona include:

  • Scrotal and Penile (Genital) Hemangiomas - are benign vascular malformations of enlarged vascular channels with abnormal growth of the endothelial cells.
  • Penoscrotal Webbing - is when the scrotum on the underside of the penis extends, creating an indistinct junction between the penis and scrotum and concealing the actual size of the penis.
  • Hypospadias - is when the opening of the urethra is on the underside of the penis instead of at the tip.

Understanding Anatomy

To recognize the conditions above, it is important to first understand the male anatomy. The male genital system consists of both internal and external genital organs involved in sexual reproduction. Internal organs include the testes, epididymis, vas deferens, and seminal vesicles, while the penis is the male external genital organ. The penis itself consists of the head (glans) and the shaft or body. The head has a covering, called the foreskin (prepuce). The frenulum (or frenum) refers to a connecting membrane on the underside of the penis, similar to that beneath the tongue. The tube inside the penis that carries urine and sperm is known as the urethra.

The Urologists at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona are highly skilled in advanced male external genital cosmetic surgical techniques, as well as treatments for male infertility and erectile dysfunction. We offer patients effective solutions for everything from circumcision adhesion/scars and circumcision revision to hypospadias repair. During your initial consultation, our Urologists will listen to your issues and concerns, answer your questions, acquire your medical history, and perform a physical examination to determine the location and extent of your genital irregularities and/or urological problems. In some cases, they may suggest further lab analysis.

We understand that it can be difficult to talk about some of these urological problems, but if not for aesthetic reasons, for health reasons it can be important that you do so. Whether you need hypospadias repair surgery or penoscrotal webbing surgery, Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona is fully equipped and ready to help you achieve the best quality of life possible.
