Penis Curvature Correction IN BANGKOK, THAILAND
Penile curvature is a urological condition that can occur among men of all ages. In rare cases the condition is congenital, meaning men are born with it. Mostly, it is associated with a condition called Peyronie’s Disease. This is where scar tissue develops inside the penis causing curved, painful erections.
Penises naturally vary in shape and size, and having a curved erection isn’t necessarily a cause for concern. However, Peyronie’s disease can cause a significant bend which can be painful. This can prevent you from having sex or make it difficult to achieve or maintain an erection. Understandably, the condition can also cause a great deal of stress and anxiety.
Peyronie’s disease sometimes goes away on its own although this is quite rare. In most cases, the condition will remain stable or get worse. Treatment may be necessary if the curvature interferes significantly with the ability to have sexual intercourse.
Although surgery can remove painful erections in most cases, it will not return the penis to its normal pre-curvature state. Rather, the aim of the surgery is to provide enough correction to allow satisfactory sexual intercourse.
Who Is a Suitable Candidate for Penile Curvature Correction?
To be considered a good candidate for the procedure, you should be over 18, in good health with penile curvature of more than 30°. In the case of Peyronie’s disease, surgery isn’t usually recommended until the condition has persisted for at least one year, and the curvature of your penis has stopped increasing and has remained stable for at least three months.
Different surgical techniques have been developed for penile curvature correction. The two main approaches are plication and plaque incision and grafting. The choice of procedure depends on a number of factors, including the degree of penile curvature and the total length of the penis. Plication is typically recommended for patients with good erectile function and curvatures of less than 60°. If the penis is bent more than 60°, plaque incision and grafting is usually more appropriate. The surgery is performed under a general or spinal anesthetic. The process begins by stimulating an artificial erection to assess the degree of the curvature. The skin is then rolled back to expose the penis and the curvature is corrected by one of the two methods below:
A wedge-shaped incision is made at the point of curvature, on the opposite side. Stitches are then used to bunch up the erectile tissue, and the unaffected side is shortened to straighten your penis.
Plaque incision and grafting:
The surgeon will cut into the plaque (segments scar tissue) to release the scar tissue and use a graft patch to fill the gap. For cutting into the plaques, the nerves either on top of the penis (for downward bends) or the urethra (for upward bends) are dissected. They are replaced when grafting has been completed.
Finally, the skin is rolled back, and the incisions are closed using dissolvable stitches.
