Hidden Penis: Possible Cause of "Small Penis"
Thank you for your question. It is challenging to answer
this question without photographs or an examination. A possibility is
that you may have a component of a hidden penis (buried penis). This can
occur after a circumcision. The issue is not that the penis is
physically smaller, but rather it is less visible due to
anatomic issues. The anatomic issues can include excessive skin
removed with the circumcision resulting in "hiding" of the penis
under scrotal skin. Another possibility is that the circumcision resulted in
worsening of the hidden penis due to the lack of repair of the congenital (born
with the condition) hidden penis at the time of the surgery.
I would recommend evaluation by an experienced male cosmetic
genital surgeon. The outpatient surgical technique that I
use to address this issue is one that I developed and have presented
my technique and results at national and international
Best of luck.
