There are a number of conditions that can cause men to be uncomfortable with the shape or appearance of their penis. In some cases, the condition may cause pain with or without an erection and problems having sex.
Some conditions such as scrotal webbing are troubling both from a functional and appearance standpoint. Other conditions are the result of surgery such as problems with a previously performed circumcision or a male enhancement procedure such as fat transfer, Alloderm or hyaluronic acid injections may leave an unsatisfactory appearance – or worse.
For men with Peyronie’s disease, a medical condition that is caused by excessive growth of scar tissue causing a penile curve and painful erections, penile corrective treatments can correct the appearance of the penis as well as restore sexual function.

There are multiple approaches Dr. Dellinger may take during your penile curvature corrective procedure. A thorough evaluation is necessary to determine the best option. Possible options include:
Your recovery time will vary depending on the type of corrective procedure Dr. Dellinger performs. Minimal treatments such as injections allow you to return to work almost immediately. More extensive procedures may require a few days. Resuming sexual activity may require you to take a couple of days to a few weeks depending on the procedure. Dr. Dellinger will give you detailed recovery instructions so you know more about what to expect.
Are there non-surgical options for penile correction?
Both oral medications and injectable treatments are options to treat penile curvature without surgery. Oral medications have not been consistently reliable, and have not delivered the same level of results as surgery. For injectable medications, multiple treatments are typically required. As with oral medications, evidence of these treatments working consistently is limited. LISW (low intensity shockwave therapy) shows significant promise as a non-invasive treatment for curvature as well as erectile dysfunction.
Are there risks associated with penile correction?
Of course, there are always risks to any medical procedure. Dr. Dellinger will discuss with you the risks and benefits of any procedure and these will vary with the surgical approach and the specifics of the condition treated.
Will my condition come back again?
Most conditions treated achieve permanent results although any procedure may require additional treatments to enhance the results.
