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

Good afternoon Eric,

The cost of removing a peno-scrotal web is $2,500
to include surgery with 2 layers closure, local anesthesia,
use of the facility and any followup care I provide.

Could be somewhat less, if the web is small.

Please do not consider a Z-plasty revision as we have revised
those. May sounds good on paper, but the resultant scar from Z-plasty surgery
is a Z, and doesn’t conceal very well.

Hoping all this is of help and we look forward to seeing you
at the office soon,

Yes, we use the Y-V plasty for many reasons including the fact the
scrotal lines or rugae are shaped look a Chevron and the incision lines
tend to fall in the creases and are more concealable.

There may be a small scrotal dog ear on either side to clip off,
truly representing less than 1.5%  and usually less than 1% of the
total scrotal surface area, more than  offset by the added
scrotum from your penis that is now a part of the true scrotum.

Hoping all this is of help and we look forward to seeing you
at the office soon,
