A scrotal reduction is a body procedure that contours the skin that incase the testicles with resultant lifting of the testicles resulting in a more youthful appearance, sleek and normal proportions of the male genitalia.
For those men that are born with or acquire (after massive weight loss or normal age effects) that have a elongated or saggy scrotal sac are candidates for scrotal reduction. The most common associated symptoms are:
- inability to wear certain clothes
- difficultly in exercising
- undesired cosmetic appearance
- pain without support
Any male who desires a more streamlined, youthful and less saggy scrotum.
A scrotal reduction can often be performed under local infiltrate anesthesia or general anesthesia. The scrotal skin only is removed thus preserving all normal penile function and sensitivity.
Depending on how much scrotal skin is needed to be removed will determine the length of the well hidden resultant incision.
The results are permanent and after healing is very unusual to have recurrence.
The recovery is usually straightforward and uneventful. A athletic supporter is worn for several weeks until the incision have healed and normal post operative pain has resolved. Ice packs have been found to reduce early, normal swelling and surgical induced inflammation.

Unfortunately there are no non surgical options that effectively treat a saggy scrotum.
Scrotal reduction will not reduce the size of the size of the testicles.
Besides the generally very low risks of any surgical procedure such as bleeding, infection and anesthesia there is an additional uncommon risk of fluid accumulation in the scrotal sac. Fortunately this is very rare and usually resolve in a few days. Scrotal reduction will not interfere with penile function, erection or ejaculation.
The fees are based on the anesthesia used (local vs sedation or general anesthesia), the facility (minor surgical suite, outpatient operating room or hospital setting) and if combined with other procedures. All pre and post operative care is included. Some preoperative laboratory analysis may be required (usually covered by your medical insurance).
