Scrotum reduction (scrotum lift) is a normal surgical procedure today. An enlargement of the scrotum may occur for various reasons. It is considered mainly a cosmetic handicap; it has no effect on the functionality.
It is a simple outpatient procedure. Upon request, it is possible to perform scrotal reduction in total anaesthesia. In this case, the duration of the procedure is about 1 hour. One-day hospital stay is required after the surgery. The scrotum may be reduced to virtually any length according to the wishes of the patient. Complications associated with the scrotal reduction are minimal. In exceptional cases, a hematoma can occur. Removal of stitches is not necessary because they fall out within three weeks.
