Our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif in Atlanta, GA, offers scrotoplasty (also known as a scrotal lift or scrotum reduction surgery). The surgery removes the excess skin from the scrotum for improved comfort and appearance. The skin around the male scrotum may be stretched and loose due to genetics, natural aging, trauma, or injury, which can lead to discomfort, pain, and self-consciousness. A scrotal lift at Y Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery is a relatively fast, safe surgery that requires a short recovery period, but it can help a man increase his confidence and self-esteem. In some cases, Dr. Yalif will also tighten the underlying muscles and adjust the tissue and skin for a normal, symmetrical appearance.
Candidates for scrotoplasty can be any age, but the best candidates have:
- Excess or stretched skin around the scrotum due to age or trauma
- Pain or discomfort in the scrotum during physical activities
- Lowered confidence or self-consciousness about the size of the scrotum
- Good overall health
- Realistic goals and expectations
What to Expect
A scrotum lift is usually performed as an outpatient procedure in 30 minutes to 1 hour with the patient under local anesthesia. Once the patient is prepared, the doctor will surgically remove the loose skin from the scrotum and then close the incisions. In some cases, the muscle tissue may be tightened or adjusted for the best appearance. A Z-plasty may also be used to add tissue grafts that will reinforce the skin. Surgical incisions are usually very small and with proper aftercare, should be difficult to detect.

After scrotoplasty, patients will have swelling and bruising for the first week, but the final results are usually visible in 2 – 3 months. Ice packs and rest will help alleviate any inflammation and discomfort. Patients should avoid exercise and sexual activity for 6 – 8 weeks after their surgery to allow the area time to heal properly. Patients should attend all follow-up appointments recommended by their plastic surgeon.
