Is a penile scrotal web effecting my penile length

Dear4 Dr. Reed, Is a penile scrotal web effecting my penile length.  Had an adult circumcision 3 years agio and think I look shorter?  Rusty   Dear Rusty, A penile scrotal web can create the illusion of a shorter penis on side view, and if recessed as shown in our gallery of before and after photos, I think you'll agree, this is a more attractive appearance.  Please look at Is befofre and after photos penisdoctor.com/before-after-penile-scrotal-web While penile scrotal web can occur from an overzealous circumcision, they are also seen in uncircumcised men, as this area is a transition zone and demarcation of where the penis takes off from the scrotum, may not always be perpendicular to the body surface line. Another consider is weight gain.  Blousing of pubic fat and skin over the base of the penis will certainly shortened perceived penile length, both when flaccid and erect. Cordially, Harold M.
