What is a buried penis?
A buried penis is a penis that is completely buried in the prepubic fat and can be usually found in obese patients with excessive fat in the lower abdomen or when excessive penile skin has been removed during circumcision or when both situations coexist.
Having a buried penis can severely affect the quality of life as both sexual and urinary functions are usually severely compromised.
Since the patient is not able to expose the penis while urinating, the pooling of urine in the abdominal skin folds causes progressive damage and maceration of the pubic and penile skin and recurrent urinary tract infections. If this condition is left untreated, the recurrent urinary tract infections can eventually lead to renal damage. The skin, chronically exposed to the irritant chemicals present in the urine, is macerated and frequently presents degenerative changes such as LS.
