Concealed Penis Repair

A concealed, hidden, or buried penis is a rare disorder that may be diagnosed in both children and adults. A concealed penis may actually be normal in size, but the shaft is buried under the lower abdomen or tethered to the scrotum. When erect, it rarely extends beyond 2 or 3 inches. Not only is a concealed penis devastating to a man’s self-confidence, but it also carries health risks.

Causes of concealed, buried, trapped, or hidden penis include:

  • Obesity (excess fat in the lower abdomen)
  • Scrotal webbing
  • Circumcision complications
  • Congenital birth defects

What are the treatment options?

  • Weight loss
  • Surgery to remove excess fat or scarred skin

Surgery might involve:

  • Removal of excess fat around the lower abdomen
  • Removal of scarred tissue
  • Scrotal contouring
  • Skin grafting to penis
