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.

In that time, through multiple appointment's he's shown care, professionalism and knowledge above any medical professional I've worked with. He sat next to me with his ipad, wrote out my concerns, his thoughts, the plan moving forward and a directive to direct contact him with any concerns. He then sent that all directly to my email.

"Dr. Hakky is such a great doctor. We first found him at a Urology practice in Snellville and were SOOOO happy to hear he was opening his own practice. My husband had an abnormal semen analysis and has Low T, so treatments were typically go to fertility specialist for IVF or IUI. Dr. Hakky introduced us to a newer way to treat both and we are now pregnant with our 2nd child and my husband feels great hormone wise. I am a nurse at a OBGYN practice and we now send all of our abnormal semen analysis patients to him. He has a great personality and knows his stuff. Highly recommend!!"- L.J. / Google / Dec 04, 2019
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.
