Scrotoplasty, more commonly called a “scrotal lift,” is a surgical procedure that’s performed to tighten and lift the scrotum. This area can lose elasticity and begin to sag with age just as other parts of the body do. Scrotoplasty is performed while the patient is under either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.
The scrotum has a line or ridge that runs down its center called the raphe, and Dr. DuPéré makes use of this existing ridge for incision placement. He makes an ellipse-shaped incision, then removes this area of skin and closes the area with sutures.
Because the skin of the scrotum is quite thin and delicate in comparison to other skin of the body, the resulting scar is relatively discreet. Additionally, the results of surgical scrotoplasty are likely to last for many years, although they cannot completely halt the aging process and the effects of gravity.
More minor concerns can be treated with surgery as well. For example, some men have a “web” of skin that connects the scrotum to the rear of the penis. This can make the penis appear smaller and affect intercourse. This is a relatively simple procedure that can be performed on its own or incorporated into a scrotoplasty surgery.
Aesthetic treatments of the scrotum may be difficult to discuss, but they can yield big benefits. Please request your consultation with Dr. DuPéré online or call us at (416) 929-9800 to schedule your visit.
