It’s an unfortunate though often natural part of aging and the effect of gravity that wrinkling, loss of firm skin texture and sagging happens. Most of us think of this being a problem in the face and neck or perhaps the general loosening of skin that results from weight loss, but there is another issue that is not always talked about; scrotum sagging. The good news is you don’t have to suffer with it any more.
Here are three important reasons to have scrotal lift surgery:
You dislike the shape and length of your scrotum. Perhaps you feel self-conscious in intimate situations. It’s even possible you’re in a relationship with someone much younger and want to rejuvenate the over all look of your genitalia. This procedure tightens and lifts the scrotum, removes excess skin and not only improves appearance but can help bring back your confidence. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look and feel your best.
You’ve previously suffered a sports injury or had testicular surgery. Difficulty with managing a sagging scrotum can affect how you use the toilet and use fitness equipment making it difficult to even ride a bike. Skin can get caught in swim suits or work-out clothes. The surgery can relieve the discomfort and pain and allow you to be at ease again in underwear and tight clothing.
You have Scrotal Lymphedema. This less common occurrence is, according to National Center for Biotechnology Information, “a disease that is caused by obstruction, aplasia, or hypoplasia of the lymphatic vessels draining the scrotum.” Without being able to drain, the fluid enlarges the scrotum, thickening the tissues and can even engulf the penis. Sometimes in advances cases, surgery is the only option.
