This book presents state of the art knowledge on penile augmentation with a view to providing a guide that will be highly relevant to clinical practice. The coverage is wide ranging, with clear descriptions of penile anatomy, patient selection and counselling, preoperative preparation, girth enhancement and penile lengthening techniques, postoperative care, and the approach to the pediatric patient. Experienced surgeons describe operative procedures from traditional fat transfer to the penile disassembly technique and reconstruction of the amputated penis, while the newest tissue engineering techniques are presented by leading researchers with reference to high-quality data.
My sisters were both told that they should have been retracting the foreskin at every diaper change and this problem would never have happened. When my son had his procedure, I went in with him to observe it done. I was asking a lot of questions about retracting the foreskin to prevent adhesions and was told that I didn't need to do anything to him besides applying Vaseline at every diaper change for the first 24 hours and then keep the area clean with plain water until it is fully healed. I have been noticing for the last six months that it seems he has a lot of extra skin on his penis and that his penis actually looks like it is sunken in all the time.
Circumcision is a common surgical procedure used to remove the foreskin of the penis. The tip of the penis, called the glans, is typically left exposed. The foreskin is reattached to the penis shaft.
Skip to content. What are penile adhesions Penile adhesions in circumcised boys occur when the penile shaft skin adheres to the glans of the penis. There are three types of penile adhesions: glanular adhesions, penile skin bridges and cicatrix.
Penile adhesions in circumcised boys occur when the penile shaft skin sticks, or adheres, to the glans of the penis. The glans is the bulbous structure at the end of the penis. Skin bridges are a thicker, more permanent attachment.
This leaflet is published by Circumcision Information Australia to complement the policy statement on circumcision issued by the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and to assist Australian and New Zealand parents care for their baby boys. The media are full of confusing information about the benefits, harms and risks of circumcision. After a thorough examination of the evidence, Australian and New Zealand doctors have concluded that there is no medical justification for circumcising normal male infants and boys in Australia and New Zealand.
A penile or prepuce adhesion can occur after a circumcision if the remaining skin is not retracted after the circumcision has healed. When a circumcision is done, tissue which would normally be intact is split. Unless proper care is taken, the epithelium of the inner prepuce at the point where the foreskin was removed can reattach to the epithelium of the glans.
