Penis Image Assessment

What can go wrong with Phalloplasty?

Penis enlargement surgery can go wrong for several reasons. The main reasons are outdated or ineffective surgical methods and incorrectly performed surgical techniques. The results can range from disfigurement to dysfunction. Reconstruction of penile enlargement surgery is the surgery that corrects these problems as much as possible.

For example, an outdated technique used to make the penis wider is to inject fat into the shaft of the penis. This technique is known as FFT, or Free Fat Transfer. This method can result in multiple complications. These problems can only be corrected with full and extensive reconstruction surgeries. Dr. Krakovsky has performed a significant number of reconstruction surgeries for men who have experienced the FFT technique. He removes the fat (because it deforms the penis) and substitutes a permanent graft.

How to get great results!

Reconstruction of enlargement surgeries is a safe surgical procedure that provides excellent results when performed by a qualified, trained surgeon. Here are a few things to remember:

1. Have realistic expectations. When the penis has been changed through previous surgery, scar tissue, previous grafts, and other complications can limit what can be reconstructed. Discuss with surgeon what to expect.  

2. Choose the most qualitifed surgeon. Make sure the doctor you select is the most qualified to reconstruct your penis. Ask many questions in order to be able to make an informative decision. The American Academy of Phalloplasty Surgeons has standards and guidelines that surgeons should follow when performing the phalloplasty.

 3. Get the support. Make sure your sugeon provides pre-operative and post-operative support and can be reached in case of a question or concern.
