Some adults have come from countries without hypospadias surgeons. Parents of some children are advised against any surgery because defect thought to be too minor, may request repair as adults. 5% of my patients are adults. ...Read more

My son had hypospadias repair at age 1 and meatoplasty at 3.5, which he now needs again. Is this common? Are there possible complications for repeats?

Yes, can recur: Meatal stenosis is quite a common complication after hypospadias repair. Usually taken care by a meatoplasty. Repeat meatal stenosis has occurred which is why meatoplasty needs to be repeated. Ask your urologist whether a different technique will be used or whether a larger opening will be created than last time.

My son will need hypospadias repair. How successful is such a repair?

My son will need hypospadias repair.  How successful is such a repair?

Highly successful: Hypospadias is a condition that has various levels of severity-. Distal hypospadias (hole close to the tip) is easier than the more proximal cases (hole closer to scrotum) which can require two surgeries. Complications include fistulas and meatal stenosis, and rates are higher with more proximal cases. The penis will look normal, but it may take a few surgeries. Seek a pediatric urologist. ...Read more

My son recently had hypospadias repair and now has a cyst close to the incision. Is this an emergency?

No, unless can't pee: Hopefully this is a small epidermal inclusion cyst which can easily be removed at your convenience, unless your son complains of pain or difficulty urinating.

When can a 14-yr. Old take a shower after circumcision and hypospadias repair?

Here are some...: The timing to take shower depends on how long the surgery is done and what the surgeon prefers. The "best" answer is following the surgeon's postoperative advice; so, call to confirm. But generally speaking, start taking shower after all dressing & the catheter are removed-roughly in 1 week; before then, taking sponge bath is the right thing to do, which, though inconvenient, patient has to cope. ...Read more

I had Hypospadias surgery, have anything to do with the size of my penis? I'm below avg. And want to know the best method to enlarge the size of it.

None, but...: Physical growth naturally comes to a haul soon marching into adulthood — for men, around 18, and hypospadias repair, for most cases, should not adversely affect penile growth since most hypospadias involves the distal part of penis. For individual variation, ask your urologist if still around, or contact me at www.Healthtap.com/dr-Lin with RQPWJC to log in. ...Read more

I am undergoing glanular hypospadias surgery, what will be the recovery time, it's effects my sex life, how many days I need to have folly iin penis.?

Ask your urologist: There are many techniques for repair. Hopefully your urologist is experienced and does at least 1/month. Most cases of glandular hypospadias do not require repair or just a minor glansplasty to correct spraying or to redirect stream. Most of my glansplasties are performed without using Foley catheter, both for patient comfort & risk of catheter tearing open the repair. Sex delay 3-4 weeks. ...Read more

I am 28 I have glan hypospadias, it's the cosmetic defect only I had two correction surgeries 1. Failed 2. Partial success, meatus is big, options?

Do nothing: Enjoy life. Glanular hypospadias is not associated either with functional or fertility issues. Big meatus can be associated with a spraying urinary stream. Or with mild urethral irritation from vaginal mucus after sex without condom, in which case would suggest urinating after sex. Repair would be cosmetic only ; any critical friend/partner/other ought to be pretty close friend to notice it! ...Read more

Could I have fat deposits in my penis due to hypospadias repairs?

Could I have fat deposits in my penis due to hypospadias repairs?

Unlikely: Modern techniques for hypospadias repair involve the use of local skin flaps from the foreskin for skin coverage- there is no fat on the foreskin so any baggy tissue is from the way the skin healed. If your repair was done a long time ago, sometimes they used flaps from the scrotum or other parts of the body which had fat. The bumps you feel may also be inclusion cysts from the stitches. ...Read more
