Penoscrotal Webbing

The scrotum in some men extends up the underside of the penis, creating an indistinct junction between the penis and scrotum. This penoscrotal webbing makes the penis appear short on its undersurface. It can also cause discomfort with intercourse or difficulty using a condom. The web may be congenital or due to removal of too much skin from a circumcision. A mild web is eliminated by rearranging the tissues at the penoscrotal junction, leaving a zigzag incision (Z-plasty). A more severe web is eliminated by excision of the web and closure with a linear scar and Z-plasty. Simple web excision by leaving a linear scar may result in tightening and worsening of the web. This procedure is relatively simple.
