  • How To Fix A Buried Penis?

    Just found that your member down there is practically gone? We hear, nightmare!! But this is an actual serious condition and is called a buried penis or a hidden penis.

    A buried penis happens when the penis is covered with excess skin or with a layer of fat in the pubic area or scrotum( the sac of skin that contains the testicles).

    To make it simple, when the penis is itself not able to extend outside the body then the problem is known as a buried penis. The opening area where the penis would normally hang,  & normally the head is plush with skin, but outside the body, there is no visible shaft.

    If you are facing this problem, it is a matter of concern for you. The problem of buried penis is becoming an increasingly common problem among adults. We are seeing a daily increase in the number of men suffering from this problem in our clinic today than we have ever seen before.

    Causes of Buried Penis

    • Obesity is a major cause, as excessive fat may cover the penis. 
    • The issue can also be a case of circumcision gone wrong. 
    • It can also result from swelling of the scrotum caused by excess buildup of lymph fluid that can bury the penis. 

    A Buried penis can also result from abnormal development of the penile shaft during fetal development, leading to an excessive layer of skin and fat around the penile shaft.

    Here Are Some of its Dreading Effects

    • Limits penetrative sex, obviously!!
    • Sometimes men also complain of being unable to control urination and fall prey to dribbling and incontinence of urine. 
    • It also makes it tough for that area to keep clean. To keep the area clean you have to pee by sitting down & when you do that there is a possibility that you can urinate on yourself. And because the area remains wet, this makes it very hard to maintain genital hygiene. It can lead to bacterial and fungal infection on the soft tissues and urinary tract.
    • Psychological issues such as depression & low self-esteem are inevitable as the person loses self-confidence and generates depreciating values about oneself. The psychological issues are also a result of deteriorating sexual relationships.
    • It can also lead to sexual problems like erectile dysfunction and phimosis.
