  • Stop drinking alcohol, a week before the surgery and throughout your recovery period.
  • Taking any medications should be avoided such as hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids and supplements at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complicating medical factors prior to surgery, and also avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.
The Procedure

The procedure yields a very satisfying aesthetic result especially since the scar can easily be hidden due to the particularity of scrotal skin. Before commencing the operation, the area of skin to be excised is marked, personalizing the entity and the form according to the specific individual. The operation exclusively involves the skin and the superficial integument and therefore there is no involvement of the testicles whatsoever or their function. The risks are really minimal and are mostly linked to the presence of post-surgical haematomas so a few days of rest and the use of a jockstrap for the the first week following the operation are recommended.

The operation is not at all painful, and the final appearance is natural since only the excessive skin is corrected and the result lasts for a very long time.

Post Operation

Recovery time from scrotal lift surgery may varies from patient to patient. You may experience some swelling or bruising. Sports activities may resume 20 days after surgery. You can go back to work 4 days after the surgery and sexual activities resume after 30 days.
