About a year ago I was circumcised by my urologist. Saw photos of your revsions and turkey neck release on http://www.penisdoctor.com/ and also reviewed http://adult-male-circumcision.com/
He did not respect my request to leave as much inner foreskin as possible. Nor did he respect my request to remain awake and aware during the procedure. The outcome is a low and sloppy look with suture marks all around.
He also pulled scrotum skin up the shaft leaving a turkey neck web. The result is that my penis looks much shorter and I cannot penetrate as deeply. The frenulum was left. It is very sensitive and pleasurable upon initial penetration but after thrusting and becoming more erect it becomes painful.
I’d like to have a recirc if possible and have the turkey neck trimmed back and the frenulum removed. Would photos help in evaluating if this is doable?
Can you give me some idea of fee?…healing time?
I’m 65, gay, and love sex. But due to what I’ve described, find myself not having it as often as my partner wants. Oh yes, I want to be as aware as possible and see as much of procedure as possible.
Good morning Manny
Thank you for your continued interest in what we do.
For most patients we recommend you stay here overnight following your revision procedure, and you can throw in a safety factor of an extra day. Your sutures should be removed 12 days after revision by a health care professional.
You can be seen in consultation and done the same day.
Yes of course, we wish to see you before you take off.
Taking your other thoughtful questions…
2. Can the frenulum be removed without total loss of sensation that it offers?
We remove the frenulum on most patients, and of the 10 % or less that request it not be removed, 80% return and say, “now Doctor, please remove it.” Truly doubt there will be any difference in sensation, but if there is any concern then don’t have it removed.,
3. When I am erect, turkey neck is barely visible but my balls are pulled up the shaft. Is this the usual situation? I very much want my balls lower for penetration again!
If you have hyper-retractile testes or so called “yo-yo” testes, there is a procedure to correct for this.
How much scaring is left by scrotal cuts?
Usually a fine white line that lays out like an inverted “Y” with limbs about 3/4″ at most in each direction.
How long is healing?
Healing continues over 6 weeks for maximal tensile strength but cosmetically certain refinements such as fading of all redness can take up to 13 months.
How many weeks before sex is possible?
You could resume sex typically in 6 weeks.
4. Could lengthening be done simultaneously?
No for this reason. Successful lengthening depends upon use of traction within a day or 2 after surgery to maintain what was accomplished in the operating room and build upon that. If you have a circumcision revision, your penis will be much too tender for traction and also you will rip you suture line apart.
How much would that cost in addition to other surgery?
If you have orchidopexy (to prevent rising in your scrotum), that fee is an added $2,500. Lengthening as a procedure unto itself is $4,500 and this is posted on our web-site.
Manny, have a serene weekend, and again many thanks for considering our facility,
