While it’s not often talked about, many men feel self-conscious about the appearance of their low-hanging scrotums. The excess skin can make it difficult to exercise, go to the bathroom, and be intimate with a partner.
At Pacific Plastic Surgery Group, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Miranda offers scrotal lifts in California.
As a male plastic surgeon for San Francisco scrotoplasty, Dr. Miranda takes intimidation and embarrassment out of the equation for men seeking a scrotal lift surgeon in San Francisco. They maintain a professional, respectful environment in which male patients can discuss their aesthetic concerns and receive the world-class treatment they deserve.
Scrotoplasty is a routine outpatient surgery that treats over-stretched scrotal skin and muscle. It is sometimes referred to as scrotum tightening, scrotal reduction, or a scrotal lift. During the procedure, your surgeon will carefully remove the elongated scrotal tissue. As they close the incision, the scrotum takes on a more youthful, smooth, and aesthetically pleasing appearance. At Pacific Plastic Surgery Group, we strive to deliver the best scrotoplasty San Francisco has to offer.
Improving scrotum size and shape can make exercise more comfortable and boost a man’s confidence in the bedroom. Our San Francisco scrotoplasty patients who previously felt embarrassed by sagging scrotal tissue often enjoy an improved sense of masculinity and a more satisfying sex life. Performed by a highly trained and specialized surgeon in the United States, a scrotal lift can offer permanent results with minimal scars and a quick recovery.
Some of the advantages of scrotum reduction include:
If you experience pain or feel embarrassed due to a sagging scrotum, a scrotal lift may resolve these problems. Some males are born with a low-hanging scrotum, while others develop wrinkling or scrotal elongation due to weight loss, aging, injury, or genetics.
The ideal candidate is in good health, both mentally and physically. If you have health issues like heart problems or bleeding disorders, let Dr. Miranda know during your consultation. Certain conditions pose an elevated risk of complications or, in some cases, may disqualify you from having the procedure. Smokers should quit for several weeks before and after the surgery to facilitate healing.
The main reasons men undergo scrotoplasty include:
During your private consultation, Dr. Miranda will listen to your concerns and examine the area. If you are a candidate, they can let you know how to prepare for the procedure. Pre-operative instructions may include quitting smoking, temporarily discontinuing blood thinners, and avoiding NSAIDs and aspirin. On the day of your procedure, arrive at the surgical facility showered and free of moisturizers, deodorant, powders, and other skincare products.
Scrotoplasty is an outpatient procedure that usually takes around an hour. Dr. Miranda will administer local anesthetic or twilight anesthesia, depending on the extent of your surgery. After making an incision along the midline of the scrotal sac, he will excise the sagging tissue. In some cases, he may also tighten the cremaster muscle. He will then close the incision in layers with fine sutures.
You can return home on the same day. Someone should be present to drive you home if you have twilight anesthesia. Dr. Miranda will advise you to limit strenuous workouts and sexual activity for six to eight weeks. The absorbing sutures dissolve on their own, so there is no need to come back into the office for stitch removal. Most of our San Francisco scrotoplasty patients feel ready to return to work in four to five days.
It takes approximately ten to 14 days for the incision to heal. The scar will fade over time. There is no need to return to the office for suture removal as the sutures will dissolve on their own.
You may have testicular pain or soreness for a few days. The discomfort should subside in one to two weeks. You can use ice packs to alleviate swelling and bruising as directed.
The scrotoplasty results in a more aesthetically appealing, lifted scrotum with smoother contours. The results are considered permanent. Most patients notice immediate improvements that will become more refined over the next two to three months as the tissues heal.
Scrotal reduction surgeons are not widely available in the United States. As the scrotoplasty surgeon at Pacific Plastic Surgery Group, Dr. Miranda has undergone extensive plastic surgical training so men can have access to this life-changing procedure. His refined techniques aim to minimize scarring and promote a comfortable recovery. In addition to this procedure, Dr. Miranda also has specialization in scrotal reconstruction, scrotal Implants, and scrotoplasty revisions.
