Peyronie’s Disease Surgery Shortening
The formation of scar tissue on one side of the penis shortens that respective side of the penis, resulting in a curvature, i.e., if the scar tissue is on the right side of the penis, the right side will become slightly shortened creating a pull of the penis to the right (Figure 1).
Shortening the longer side of the penis can help create equal length on both sides (Figure 2). Although some shortening may occur, the amount of shortening is typically no more than 3/4 of an inch. This procedure is utilized for less severe cases of Peyronie’s Disease.
