Penis Reconstruction

Penis Reconstruction in Bangkok, Thailand

Penis reconstruction refers to surgical procedures aimed at restoring the form and function of the penis. This may be necessary due to congenital abnormalities, trauma, cancer, or other conditions that affect the penis. Kamol Hospital provides a multidisciplinary team of specialists, including urologists, plastic surgeons, oncologists, and mental health professionals. Our team works together to create and develop a personalized treatment plan for the individual.

Penis reconstruction may be indicated in various situations, including:

1. Hypospadias:

Hypospadias is a congenital condition where the opening of the urethra is located on the underside of the penis rather than at the tip. It can range from mild to severe and may require surgical correction to improve urinary and sexual function.

2. Epispadias:

Epispadias is a rare congenital condition where the opening of the urethra is located on the upper side of the penis rather than at the tip. Like hypospadias, it may require surgical intervention for correction.

3. Micropenis:

Micropenis is a condition where the penis is smaller than average, typically defined as being less than 2.5 inches, standard deviations below the average size for age and stage of development. It can result from hormonal imbalances or genetic factors.

Phimosis is a condition where the foreskin is tight and cannot be retracted over the head of the penis.

A good candidate for penis reconstruction:

1. Underlying Condition(Diseases):

Individuals with congenital abnormalities such as hypospadias or epispadias, traumatic injuries resulting in penile loss or deformity, or cancer requiring partial penile removal (penectomy) may be candidates for penis reconstruction. The specific type and extent of reconstruction needed will depend on the underlying condition.

2. Good Health:

Good health is important for undergoing surgery and recovering from penis reconstruction. Individuals should be in reasonably good physical condition and free from significant medical issues that could increase the risks associated with surgery.

3. Psychological Readiness:

Penis reconstruction surgery can have a significant impact on body image, self-esteem, and sexual function. Candidates should have realistic expectations about the outcomes of surgery and be emotionally prepared to undergo the procedure and any necessary postoperative care.

4. Support System:

Having a strong support system, including family, friends, and healthcare providers, can be beneficial for individuals undergoing penis reconstruction. Supportive relationships can provide emotional support and assistance with practical aspects of recovery.

5. Motivation and Goals:

Candidates for penis reconstruction should have clear motivations and goals for undergoing surgery. Whether it's improving physical appearance, restoring sexual function, or addressing functional issues related to urination, having well-defined goals can help guide treatment decisions and postoperative care.

6. Consultation with Specialists:

Before undergoing penis reconstruction surgery, candidates typically undergo a comprehensive evaluation by a multidisciplinary team of specialists, including urologists, plastic surgeons, and other healthcare providers. This evaluation helps determine the most appropriate treatment approach based on the individual's specific needs and circumstances.

Surgical Techniques:

        Kamol Hospital can provide congenital abnormalities like hypospadias. The surgery typically involves repositioning  of the urethral opening to the tip of the penis and reconstructing the penile shaft to achieve a more typical appearance.

In cases of traumatic injuries or cancer requiring partial penile removal reconstruction, we can provide  surgical techniques such as skin grafting, tissue flaps, or microvascular surgery to restore both form and function.

Penile reconstruction after penectomy, Kamol Hospital offers various approaches, including phalloplasty (construction of a new penis using tissue from other parts of the body), penile implants, and cosmetic procedures to achieve a natural appearance.

Post-operative care

  • Wound Care: Proper wound care is essential to prevent infection and promote healing. This may include keeping the surgical site clean and dry, as well as following any specific instructions provided by the surgeon regarding wound dressing changes or wound care products.
  • Pain Management: Pain and discomfort are common after surgery, and pain management strategies may be prescribed to help alleviate discomfort. This may include over-the-counter or prescription pain medications, as well as techniques such as ice packs or warm compresses, as recommended by the healthcare provider.
  • Activity Restrictions Patients may be advised to avoid strenuous physical activity, heavy lifting, or sexual activity for a certain period following surgery to allow for proper healing. It's essential to follow any activity restrictions provided by the healthcare provider to avoid complications and promote optimal recovery.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Patients will typically have follow-up appointments with their healthcare provider to monitor healing progress, assess for any complications, and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan. It's important to attend all scheduled follow-up appointments and communicate any concerns or issues with the healthcare team.
  • Hygiene: Maintaining good hygiene is important for preventing infection and promoting healing. Patients may be advised to gently cleanse the surgical site with mild soap and water and to avoid harsh or irritating products that could irritate the skin.
  • Medication Management: Patients may be prescribed antibiotics or other medications to prevent infection or manage specific symptoms during the recovery period. It's important to take all prescribed medications as directed and to notify the healthcare provider of any adverse reactions or concerns.
  • Emotional Support: Penis reconstruction surgery can have a significant emotional impact on patients, and emotional support is essential during the recovery process. Patients may benefit from counseling, support groups, or other resources to help cope with any psychological or emotional challenges they may face.
  • Diet and Nutrition: Eating a healthy diet and staying hydrated can support the healing process. Patients may be advised to consume nutritious foods, drink plenty of fluids, and avoid alcohol and tobacco, which can impair healing.
