Most likely: My understanding is that the procedure involves releasing the tissue causing the problem, it should not affect the penis ability to respond to testosterone but i would ask the urologist if procedure can wait until he is done with puberty.

See below: Depends on the age of the child. Talk to your urologist, in all likelihood the growth of the particular organ has finished at this point.

Question Peyronie's: This would be very unusual for a teenager & thus wonder if this is an accurate diagnosis. Teen in question may have upward curvature of his penis as a congenital defect. If so might be amenable to some surgical correction. Second opinion by an experienced pediatric urologist might be considered. Penis will noe grow larger if puberty incomplete.
