CONSULTATION

DURING YOUR CONSULTATION WITH ME IN MY OFFICE I WILL DISCUSS AND PUT INTO PERSPECTIVE THE FOLLOWING ISSUES AS THEY RELATE TO MY SURGICAL TECHNIQUES.

The frequency of complications is not known because there are no large-scale studies reported in the medical literature. Consequently, some physicians consider these procedures to be experimental or investigational.

The following complications from penile lengthening and Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) widening are theoretically possible:

  • Loss of erect upward angle of the penis. This has occurred in one of my patients.
  • Keloid scars (a thick scar). This is unusual but can often be treated by injections of medication.
  • Scarring causing a shorter penis. I have never seen lasting shortness in my patients who use a penile stretching device.
  • Absorption of the Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) with loss of thickness. I have seen one patient who had partial absorption and some loss of thickness.
  • Contracture of the Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®). I have seen one patient with partial contracture of the graft.
  • Failure of the Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) to "take". This has not occurred any of my patients.
  • Skin incision separation. I have seen slight temporary skin incision separation in a few of my patients.
  • Loss of some penile skin. This rarely occurs.
  • Bleeding. I have seen one patient with a collection of blood under the skin that was easily managed.
  • Fibrosis of superficial vein. This rarely occurs and usually resolves by itself.
  • Infection. I have seen one patient who developed an infection and lost the graft and one patient who lost part of the graft.
  • Ecchymosis (bruising). This occasionally occurs and resolves by itself.
  • Nerve injury resulting in decrease of penile sensation. This has not occurred in any of my patients.
  • Edema (temporary swelling of the skin). I have occasionally seen this in my patients.
  • Seroma (collection of serum under skin). This has not occurred in any of my patients.
  • Erectile dysfunction (difficulty with erection). This has not occurred in any of my patients.

If some of these complications occur, further surgery may be required.
