What is a Buried Penis?

Buried penis is a general condition where the penis becomes concealed, leading to urinary and sexual problems if left untreated. This concealment can be due to excess fat around the belly/genitals, lymph build up around the scrotum, or scar tissue around the penis.

What are the Common Causes and Symptoms of Buried Penis?

Some of the leading factors in acquiring a buried penis include obesity, inflammatory conditions like lichen sclerosus/BXO, lymphedema, and iatrogenic causes. In some cases buried penis may have genetic causes.

What Do I Do if I Suspect I Have Buried Penis? 

If you suspect you have a buried penis it is important to meet with your doctor right away. While buried penis is a treatable disease, it may progress over time if left untreated – potentially leading to more serious issues. Untreated buried penis can lead to further concealment of the penis, itching/pain due to inflammation, and even penile cancer.

What are My Options?

Surgical options for Buried Penis include phalloplasty, escutcheonectomy, and scrotoplasty. These options will be weighed by both you and the physician, determining which might provide the best outcome. Surgical treatment involves retraction of the skin/fat surrounding the penis and then a graft or surrounding tissue is used to reconstruct the penis. What does recovery look like? You will be discharged with detailed instructions for taking care of your skin graft. This includes changing xeroform dressing daily and keeping the graft side clean and dry. It is suggested you walk around in small, frequent intervals. In some circumstances you may feel tired during the recovery process – this is completely normal. Detailed instructions regarding your current and new medications will be given at time of discharge.

Restrictions After Surgery

No lifting objects greater than 10 pounds for six weeks.


A hydrocele is when a pocket of fluid collects inside the scrotum. Hydroceles occur when abdominal or lymphatic fluid collects into a sack within the scrotum. Hydroceles often progress over time – to the point where one might have significant discomfort. While an alarming appearance, hydroceles are rarely serious. Removal of the hydrocele involves a simple surgery where the collected fluid is drained.


Hidradenitis is a chronic disease where painful bumps are formed under the skin. The bumps occur when pus fills in hair follicles located near sweat glands. These bumps often occur in locations prone to rubbing, such as the scrotal area. Surgical management is the preferred treatment option due to the reduced risk of recurrence.

Testis Implant

Patients may be interested in receiving a testicular implant for a variety of reasons. They are often implanted in those who have had their testes surgically removed, experienced testicular trauma, or have a birth defect where the testes have not developed properly. These implants offer a real-looking prosthetic, giving patients their confidence back.


Lymphedema in general is a condition where lymph collects in spots such as the legs due to disrupted flow within the lymphatic system. In some cases this fluid may collect in the pelvic and genital region – leading to an abnormal looking scrotum. The general surgical procedure for treating lymphedema involves removing the mass and then reconstructing the scrotum/penis if necessary.
