Waddle of skin still left after my adult circumcision

Dr. Reed, Seems to be a waddle of skin underneath my penis after an adult circumcision done last year by another doctor.  How easy is his to remove?  Henry

Dear Henry,  We see penile skin waddles all the time as there tends to be a laxity and redundancy of skin on the underside of many penises.  Naturally once circumcised you anticipate a smooth cylindrical result.  This is minor surgery. 

In our practice, we look at the patient very carefully before applying a dressing and give the patient a hand held mirror to be sure we all are happy with the result.

Please initiate consultation by sending some photos with your specific critique.  

Do look at our web-site penisdoctor.com for before and after pictures of adult circumcisions and revisions
