You wake up one morning and notice your penis looks a little shorter. In an extreme case, your member might look more like a clitoris than a penis, says Ming-Hsien Wang, M. Of course, change occurs on a continuum, notes Dr.
Adult acquired buried penis represents the clinical manifestation of a wide spectrum of pathology due to a variety of etiologies. Buried penis can be associated with poor cosmesis and hygiene, voiding dysfunction, and sexual dysfunction. Evaluation and management of buried penis largely depends on etiology and degree of affected tissue.
With any procedure, it is important to know what complications are possible. Not only does this knowledge guide technique to minimize the possibility of a poor outcomebut it also allows for a more informed discussion with parents who are considering circumcision for their son and permits improved recognition of problems if and when they occur. Bleeding is the most commonly encountered complication of circumcision.
Circumcision performed using the Gomco clamp is usually quick and effective, and results in very little bleeding. However, every clinician performing circumcision occasionally has concerns or questions regarding the procedure. Some of the more common concerns regarding the use of the Gomco clamp are technique-related, including choosing the correct size of the Gomco bell and clamp for the procedure, choosing the right method of getting the foreskin properly through the hole of the Gomco base plate, and assessing how much foreskin to remove.
Micropenis refers to an abnormally small penis. Micropenis is rare and hormonal or genetic issues are most often the cause. Doctors will usually diagnose and treat the condition at birth.
Buried Penis is a condition in which the penis appears small because it is largely concealed in the body cavity, either because of a short suspensory ligament or because of a large pad of pubic fat. In the absence of any other conditions such as cryptorchidism it can be regarded as being within the broad spectrum of normality. The penis will emerge at normal size during childhood or at puberty.
Objective: Circumcision is one of the most frequently performed elective procedures in male. Materials and Methods: From March to May59 patients with circumcision related complications were received at age range of 6 months to 5 years with a mean age of 2. The most common complication was urethra-cutaneous fistulae in 18 patients, followed by meatal stenosis in 9, bleeding in 6, incomplete circumcision in 6, buried penis in 5, glanular injury in 4, skin bridge in 4, complete amputation of phallus 3, hole in the prepuce in 3 patients and one patient with coronal constriction and fistula.
Many different surgical strategies have been described in order to maximize penile exposure and to deal with skin deficiency. We describe the strategies that we use to overcome technical problems in severe cases of CP. These patients were treated using extensive degloving, removal of dysplastic dartos, Alexander's preputial flap, scrotal flaps and skin grafts.
Depending on where you're from, the procedure is done for medical, religious, or traditional reasons. From a medical perspective, Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin, the tissue covering the head glans of the penis. During a circumcision, the foreskin the retractable roll of skin covering the end of the penisis freed from the head of the penis, and the excess foreskin is trimmed off.
Buried or concealed penis is an uncommon condition in which the penile shaft is partially or completely obscured by preputial skin. In the majority of cases, it is congenital. Many patients are ill-advisedly referred for circumcision, a procedure which can compromise future repair and cosmetic outcome.
