(FAQ) Penile scrotal web is drawing unwanted hair and skin into the vagina

Dr. Reed, I think my urologist made the circumcision too tight and feel that my ball sack is attached to the underside  of my penis.  Have you ever seen this before? Brent

Dear Brent,  Penile scrotal webs (turkey neck) are seen very frequently in my practice.  Believe it or not, some are noted in uncircumcised patients as the penile scrotal area is a transition zone.  However, the is no doubt an overly aggressive circumcision can produce this as well.  I have posted below some pre- and post op (before and after) pictures of penile scrotal webs and how they were corrected.  Not only will you no longer be dragging skin and hair into the vagina, hopefully after penile scrotal web recession you’ll look longer.

Possible to go from high to low circumcision?

Dr. Reed, Don’t like the two toned look.  Is it possible to go from high to a low circumcision? Matthew Dear Matthew, If you have some loose skin when you are erect, theoretically yes.  You may require a V-dart on the underside as bringing a larger circumference to a smaller may result in a waddle.  Please…Continue Reading

Penile scrotal web makes me look shorter

Dr. Reed,  Have a peno-scrotal web or so-called turkey neck. Not sure if this occurred after an adult circumcision but getting scrotum and hair into the vagina during sex is no fun for either of us.  What is the cost of surgery?  Is the y-v plasty and a Z-plasty basically the same thing used interchangeably?  Eric…Continue Reading
