SCROTAL LIFT AND SCROTAL REDUCTION

Undergoing Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery can be one of the most personal and private decisions a person can make. Yet, within the many procedures that we at Chandigarh Cosmetic and Plastic centre. Surgical Associates do to help people create better lives for themselves, some are even more private that others.

Men who are self-conscious and unhappy with the size or shape of their scrotum may feel as if they have no one to talk to because the subject is so personal and private. They may keep their thoughts about their bodies to themselves, even while it makes them self-conscious in the bedroom and uncomfortable during many different physical activities such as jogging, bike or motorcycle riding or horseback riding

Most males elect to proceed with scrotal lift surgery, or scrotoplasty, because of scrotal tissue getting caught in swimwear or work out clothing, bicycle seats, interferes with their intimal life, or commonly, because it touches the toilet water when they sit down to have a bowel movement. Some patients elect to have it done for cosmetic reasons also.

Yet, Scrotal Reduction or Tightening, also known as Scrotoplasty, is a routine procedure. It treats stretched scrotal skin and muscle. It is an outpatient surgery that requires no overnight hospital stay and that heals relatively quickly with great results.

THE BENEFITS SCROTAL LIFT
Large scrotum can make a man self-conscious about his body and can make some physical activities uncomfortable or even painful. By tightening the scrotal muscle and skin, discomfort and irritation can be greatly reduced. Some men who before were self-conscious in the bedroom (usually due to a one time comment from their partner) often feel relieved and have more sexual self-confidence.

SCROTAL LIFT SURGERY
The surgery is usually performed on an out-patient basis using local or twilight anesthesia. It takes from 30 minutes to little over an hour depending on complexity.
Neither the penis nor the urethra is affected when the scrotum is made smaller.
There are several options to scrotal surgery. The simplest way is to remove the skin only. It may work well for some but the skin may and will stretch in time.
Another option is tighening the skin and muscle or performing internal Z plasty. Occasionally a small rotation of muscle or additional tissue graft is needed to reinforce the stretched and thinned out tissues. Retaining a natural shape along with all normal sensation is paramount. Self-dissolving sutures are used so you won’t have to come in just to have the stitches removed.

TESTICLE IMPLANTS

If you decide that getting a testicle implant is right for you, surgery can be performed at the same time as the operation to remove the testicle, or it can be done at a later date.

Dr.Rahul Goyal M.Ch Plastic and cosmetic surgeon and assistant professor , says two types of incisions could be used to place the implant, one directly into the scrotum or one into the lower groin area. In the former, the incision is made and the prosthesis is placed inside and tied in with stitches. In the latter, called an inguinal incision, the prosthesis is placed in the lower groin, reducing the chance that the implant will stick out of the scrotal sac.

Normally the space in which the testicle implant will stay is created using an inflatable balloon. The implant is designed with a small loop at the end to help it stay put in the lower part of the scrotum.
