Anyone had surgery to reduce penile-scrotal webbing AKA turkeyneck?

    So if your ballsack seems to connect halfway up your shaft (instead of at the base), you might have penile-scrotal webbing. Also known as turkeyneck, this flap of skin can make a penis look shorter from a side view, and worse yet can get sore during intercourse if it's bumping things.

    I have seen guys on here who talk about stretching it, softening it, etc. More power to ya, but I think a surgical approach would be in order.

    Would a urologist laugh a patient right out of his office if a patient asked for a penal-scrotal webbing removal surgery? Is it even in their scope of procedures, or would a patient have to go straight to a plastic surgeon and pay fully out of pocket for such a procedure?

    Here is a description from a plastic surgeon:

    I have not had this done.
    I would think it is not a complicated procedure.
    Any doctor who laughs at you because of a medical issue is no a professional. I don't think that would happen.
    Not being familiar with the procedure, and since the link you provided is of a plastic surgeon, I would guess that is who you would want to see an not a urologist. It is a skin reduction surgery.

    As far as payment and cost. The justification would have to be made to your insurance company and that it is medically necessary. If you can do that then you have to deal with all the in network vs out of network rules.

    I don't think it would be that expensive. Get the best doctor you can find. It is your dick and balls after all.
    I paid a good deal of money for Lasik from one of the best in the country.
    Someone I know who took the cheap route has had issues.

    I always thought the turkeyneck was caused by varicoceles (varicose veins in the scrotum). There's nothing unusual about asking to have them removed so I'm not sure why the doctor would laugh that one patient out of the office. Lots of guys have it done.

    I had it done 5 years ago. At that time it cost $5,000. I could actually have a little more work done but when I asked my urologist he said the proceedure would be close to $7,000 now. It isn't covered by insurance.

    Interesting that the webpage stated: "Patient had a history of an aggressive circumcision at birth." There's a general belief that circumcision makes the webbing worse. The doctor's comment affirms that.

    I have a rather large web but I wouldn't consider surgery.

    I have never even though of this before. How does it happen? Is it like a bad circumcision so they have to use sack to cover up the damage? What the Hell?

    I guess, actually, that I've seen it in porn before, but never like in that link. Like, really, how often could it get that bad? I just sort of logged it away and never thought about it ever again.

    You've successfully screwed with my head, OP.

    For those of us that aren't lucky enough to have a nine inch cock a couple inches of webbing is a bit of a curse. Condoms will not stay on. They roll right up the webbing then come off. When using a cock ring the extra skin gets bunched up and becomes a little sore after a long session. Someone who is quick to shoot may not notice. That extra skin should be sewed back to the scrotum where it belongs. I got a vasectomy quite some time ago so I never gave much thought to having something done. But now that I am older I find that a cock ring is indeed very satisfying yet a little painful especially after 45 minutes or so.

    I just joined recently, and DAMN! I knew there was a reason.

    This webbing thing has been bothering me for quite a few years now, and I've never heard it mentioned or even knew what to call it until now.

    My webbing goes about half way up the shaft and can get pretty sore after a while during sex. I briefly toyed with the idea of trying to take care of it myself, but as my boss wisely says sometimes, "Lie down until that feeling passes." I took the advice.

    I'm circumcised, but I don't think that had anything to do with it. My balls are pretty big and always ride "high and tight." If that piece of skin got sewn back onto my scrotum, my sac might have a little more swing to it.

    Thanks LPSG-ers for this info!

    The penile scrotal web is caused by aggressive circumcisions. If too much skin is removed then skin from the scrotum pulls forward on the penile shaft. Please do a google on penile scrotal web there are lots of scientific articles on anatomy and why an aggressive circ can cause this problem.
