What is the treatment for buried penis?

Buried penis frequently requires the combined intervention of a bariatric surgeon and of the uro-andrologist. 

Significantly overweight patients need to lose weight first and in this case the intervention of the bariatric surgeon can be extremely useful.

Once patients have reached the target weight, the management of the buried penis requires the excision of the suprapubic fat and of all the excess skin performing an abdominoplasty. 

If there is not enough penile skin, or if the skin needs to be removed because it is affected by lichen sclerosus, the penis needs to be reconstructed using a variety of skin grafts. In expert hands, abdominoplasty, excision of the suprapubic fat and penile reconstruction, yield excellent functional and cosmetic results and allow patients to restore sexual and urinary function.
