Can you revise my circumcision, fix a penile scrotal web, and do glans enhancement all at the same time?

Dr. Reed,  Are you able to revise my circumcision, fix a penile scrotal web, and do AlloDerm glans enhancement all at the same time?  I only get 2 weeks off a year?  Nestor

Dear Nestor,

We insert AlloDerm to enhance the glans via an underside  transverse incision in the coronal sulcus from about 9 to 3 o’clock.  Our approach is to go underside to avoid transecting the neurovascular bundle which could result is appreciable loss of glans sensitivity. Please see a photo below.  Certainly you don’t want Dr. Reed to lift the glans caps by making an incision on the top. Doing simultaneous surgery and making a circumferential incision below could place some added risk to wound healing. Looking at your circumcision scarring there is a lot of work to be done.  Possibly we could do the penile scrotal web at the same time. The same patient who has “get-there-itis” is never happy with related rush rush complications.
