Ventral Phalloplasty Genital Contouring Q & A
What is ventral phalloplasty genital contouring?
Ventral phalloplasty is a surgical genital contouring procedure that can give you the visual impression of a larger penis. When your scrotal skin attaches to the underside of your penis shaft, it can form a triangle-shaped flap that covers part of your penis, making it look smaller. With ventral phalloplasty, Dr. Cornell surgically removes excess scrotum skin.
This cosmetic procedure can improve the look of your penis and help boost your self-confidence with a penis that appears larger and better-looking scrotum
How does ventral phalloplasty genital contouring work?
First, during a consultation visit, Dr. Cornell reviews your medical history and performs a thorough physical exam to make sure you are a good candidate for a ventral phalloplasty.
During the procedure, Dr. Cornell prepares the treatment area with shaving and standard skin preparatory techniques using an alcohol-based topical solution. You are put under anesthesia for the duration of your surgery.
He holds your scrotal skin taut and makes a checkmark-shaped incision on the frontal scrotal skin near the shaft of your penis. He then uses special surgical tools to remove some of the scrotal skin outlined by the incision and stitches up the resulting wound carefully.
Is ventral phalloplasty genital contouring safe?
Dr. Cornell provides safe ventral phalloplasty with minimal chance of risk or side effects. However, as is the case with any surgical procedure, you may experience complications, like an infection at the incision site or problems with anesthesia. If you experience more serious side effects, which are very rare after ventral phalloplasty, let the office know right away.
