What is a scrotal lift?
A scrotal lift, also known as a scrotoplasty, is a lift applied to the envelope that covers both of a man's testicles called the "scrotum". This intimate surgical procedure aims to remove excess tissue and tighten the cremaster muscle that protects the testicles. A scrotal lift improves the aesthetics of the testicles by giving them a rejuvenated and toned appearance. To do this, the surgeon removes any excess skin to lift the human genitals.
The procedure is applicable when there is elongation in the scrotum or when the testicles appear drooping, which is likely due to aging or trauma.
Who should have a scrotoplasty?
The right candidate for bursa lift surgery is the one who:
- Experiences pain or discomfort from scrotal enlargement during sports and sexual intercourse
- Is unhappy with his scrotum appearance
- Has drooping and wrinkled testicles due to advancing age
- Has had a scrotal or testicular accident or testicular torsion
How is the testicular lift performed in Turkey?
The plastic surgeon must make a diagnosis before proceeding with the operation in order to detect the existence of anomalies in the testicular area.
Diagnosis of scrotal problems
To examine the problems related to the testicles and scrotum, the surgeon must perform ultrasound imaging. Sound waves are used to create a clear image of the testicles, which helps determine abnormalities in the genital organ.
More detailed images of the anterior structures of the scrotum can be detected by MRI, which is more advanced than a simple X-ray.
The course of the operation
The scrotoplasty procedure is performed under local and sometimes general anesthesia, depending on the case.
The surgeon prepares the area to be operated on by shaving and antiseptic cleaning beforehand. Then, he makes an incision at the level of the longitudinal light line located between the testicles or along the perineal raphe. He lifts the testicles and removes the excess fibromuscular tissue from the scrotum to reshape the scrotal sagging. The operation usually takes no longer than 45 minutes.
The stitches are absorbable and will fall out after 3 weeks. A suspensory bandage must be maintained throughout the recovery period.
The patient can resume his sports activities and his sexual life after the healing phase (estimated at 15 days).
Post-operative follow-up of the scrotal reduction surgery
After the operation, some side effects may occur:
- Urinary discomfort
- Blood in the urine
- Swelling in the scrotum
To have a quick recovery, the patient must clean the operated area with a disinfectant.
In case of pain, the surgeon will prescribe a painkiller. Wearing loose-fitting clothing is strongly recommended.
