The term “buried penis syndrome” describes a penis of normal size that lacks an appropriate sheath of skin and is located beneath the integument of the abdomen, thigh, or scrotum. The penis may also be buried within its own skin.
Buried penis syndrome is a true congenital disorder commonly diagnosed in children, usually presenting in neonates or obese prepubertal boys; however, it can also be seen in adults and has been observed in both circumcised and uncircumcised individuals.
An Example of Expected Gains
A buried penis size of 1 inch is likely to be covered by 1 to 1.5 inch of fat-skin tissues on its “invisible” portion. As an example, if 1-inch of fat-skin tissue is removed, it will allow the penis to appear bigger visually, adding an additional 1-inch to its length for a total of 2 inches length.
The placement of the Penuma implant can potentially increase the appearance of length and girth of the penis.
The above example is based on average gains in our patients. Individual results after surgery may vary depending on the size of the implant used for a patient- specific case.
