Scrotal Enlargement (Scrotal Surgery)
The scrotum usually consists of a very flexible and wrinkly skin sack which accommodates the testicles. Its shape and size are usually adjusted to the size of the testicles to look “filled out”.
Some conditions such as undescended testicles (testicles that remain in the groin area and need to be surgically moved down into the scrotum or removed in order to eliminate the risk of cancer), testicular atrophy (testicles were originally “normal” in size, but have shrunk over time due to several conditions such as hormonal imbalance or testosterone abuse), removal of one or both testicles due to cancer, and originally smaller size of the testicles compared to the scrotal sack may require a surgical correction of the scrotal aesthetics.
Depending on the given condition that is causing the scrotum look like an oversize empty bag, Dr. Elist enhances, replaces, or inserts a testicular prosthesis and implants in order to achieve a fuller and natural look of the scrotum through scrotal enlargement surgery.
If one or both testicles are missing, Dr. Elist achieves a scrotal enlargement through the insertion of testicle shaped prosthesis via scrotal surgery (i.e., Testicular Replacement). If the testicles are small in size compared to the scrotum, Dr. Elist achieves a scrotal enlargement through the insertion of Elist Testicular Implants to enhance the size of existing testicles by performing scrotal surgery.
The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and takes less than an hour and is generally very well tolerated by our patients.
