Whether you are consulting with our board-certified urologist, Dr. Tariq S. Hakky, for scrotoplasty to decrease your discomfort or for aesthetic reasons, scrotoplasty is one of our outpatient surgeries that can provide for both. Also known as a scrotal lift or ventral phalloplasty, this is a cosmetic urology procedure that will reduce the unnecessary skin hanging from your scrotum. At Atlanta Cosmetic Urology, Dr. Hakky provides private consultations to discuss how to address the loose skin on your scrotum, asymmetries, to make the penile look longer and larger, or to improve the overall look of your phallic area.
Over time, your skin may have lost its elasticity because of your age or trauma to your scrotum. Skin naturally loses its tightness as we age — the scrotal skin is no different. Dr. Hakky will also provide services to assist in making your scrotum appear more symmetrical if one side is lower than the other. If you would like to have a conversation about scrotoplasty with Dr. Hakky, please call and schedule your first appointment.
"Dr Hakky is the best around ! After having a major car accident in 2007, I had very bad nerve damage after my pelvic surgery and ED was a serious issue! I tried other options for years and We talked and the Titan implant and it was the very best option! Awesome Doctor, and Fantastic work ! My life has completely changed for the better! I'm a brand new man. I highly recommend Dr Hakky ! He treats all of his patients with respect and the best knowledge you will receive about whatever issues you are having! He will definitely get any issues squared away !"- L.T. / Google / Apr 24, 2021
"My husband and I heard about Dr. Hakky through a close family friend. We went in for a consultation and he was nothing but respectful and professional in every sense. He made my husband feel comfortable which is extremely rare being that he absolutely hates seeing ANY DOCTOR lol! It was a match made in heaven and to this day my husband still goes into see him! He does not trust anyone else! He’s the best “dick doctor” in GA!"- S.S. / Google / Mar 22, 2021
"Dr. Tariq Hakky is one of the best urologists I have had the pleasure of meeting. He is knowledgable, well informed, friendly, and above all a true professional. I received a penile implant and he performed a great surgery. I had very little pain and almost no bruising at all. I couldn't be happier with the result. Highly recommend him if you're suffering from ED and are looking to get an implant."- M. / Healthgrades / Dec 29, 2020

"My wife and I have been struggling with fertility and we were recommended to Dr Hakky. He was super detailed and really took the time to understand our issues. His ability to listen and problem solve is worth the extra driving to his office."- C.C. / Google / Jul 14, 2020
Candidates for scrotoplasty or a scrotal lift should come into this process with good health, realistic goals, and sensible expectations as to what cosmetic surgery can do for this area of your genitalia. To qualify for scrotoplasty, you may have:
- Too much skin around or hanging from the scrotum
- Pain or discomfort within the scrotum in certain clothing or during physical activities
- Embarrassment or severe self-consciousness about the appearance of the scrotum
Dr. Hakky will perform your scrotoplasty in an outpatient setting in about 30 minutes with a general or a local anesthetic. Once you are prepared for surgery, Dr. Hakky will make an incision (the type of incision will be agreed upon during treatment planning) in the scrotal skin and remove the excess from the scrotum. He will close the incision after adjusting the skin for the best appearance and symmetry. Scrotoplasty surgical incisions by Dr. Hakky are generally made very small and are placed in areas that can best hide the scar.
If your penis has a small amount of loose skin hanging between the base of your penis and scrotum, it can be also be removed. Excising loose skin on your penis will use the same surgical technique as a ventral phalloplasty only it requires a much smaller incision. This delicate incision will be shallow and oval-shaped. Dr. Hakky will make a dotted line starting from your scrotum and move dorsally up your penis just in the area where there is lax skin.
What to Expect
Upon waking from surgery (if a general anesthetic was used), we will discuss the best way to care for your treatment area when you are at home. The recovery time for a scrotoplasty is about two weeks. To manage your pain, lots of ice packs and sleep will help ease your discomfort and reduce swelling or inflammation. You will need to be cleared by Dr. Hakky before you go back to the gym (to allow your scrotum to heal).
You will need to schedule a six-week follow-up appointment with Dr. Hakky so that he can document your progress and see how your scar is healing. If you experience any signs of infection (fever, odor, discharge, or excessive swelling) from your treatment area, please call our office immediately for assistance.
