Countless men are increasingly becoming more interested in having the excess scrotal skin removed through a scrotal lift. Many of them are young male who practise sports on a regular basis and feel their testicles noticeably sag and get in the way when wearing sports clothing or do high intensity exercise. Some other men choose this intervention out of aesthetics reasons, wishing to boost their self-confidence. In some cases, our patients underwent a previous pathology and/or a testicular intervention, such as varicocele or hydrocele reconstruction, causing the skin to lose its retraction capability. Scrotal lift, a safe and reliable intervention, is becoming highly demanded.
Surgical techniques and scar location
To select the best procedure, a preoperative assessment is carried out alongside specialized surgeons. The incision is performed along the scrotal raphe. If the scrotum benefits from a vertical tightening as well (bi-dimensional lift), an additional short scar is performed alongside the base of the penis, leaving minimal scars. In order to achieve aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting results, both skin excision and muscle plication are part of an up-to-date scrotal lift technique.
Scars after the scrotal lift are almost invisible and concealed in the raphe or along the natural lines of the penis base.

The stitching used for the scrotal lift are dissolvable, making their removal unnecessary. At PD Dr. Richard Fakin’s clinics, we recommend to do a daily and thorough cleansing of the wound without rubbing it. As of the second day after surgery, the contusion can be washed. Patients should avoid exercise and sexual activities for at least 14 days. To sooth the pain, we recommend painkillers during the first days after the intervention.
