Doctor can check: Every year, at his annual check-up with his pediatrician, his doctor looks at the penis and testicles to be sure that they are at the correct stage of development for his age. If the genitals are underdeveloped or overdeveloped for his age, his doctor will investigate. If he is not due for his annual check-up anytime soon, he can make an appointment just to have his penis and testicles checked.

Probably no need: From your description, I don't see any obvious need for revision. But check back with the doctor who did the procedures.
