How tight can you make a circumcision | The Reed Centre for Cosmetic Circumcision | Miami

Dr. Reed, Don’t want a penile scrotal web or turkey neck.. So how tight can you make a adult circumcision?  Frank

Dear Frank,

A penile scrotal web creates the illusion or “optics” that you have a shorter penis, so we want to avoid that.

We will see you in an exam room before the procedure and with one gloved hand pull on the penis and with the other lift the skin outwardly until we see pubic skin and scrotal skin drawing onto the shaft of your penis.  We can also undermine your shaft skin somewhat to loosen the septae.  This allows the skin will stretch out further without pulling on pubic or scrotal skin.
