In most cases of Hypospadias, patients have the fear of deforming the appearance of their penis, as the surgery is complex in itself. However, men no longer need to live with the fear of ridicule over cosmetic changes in his penis after the hypospadias surgery.
It is seen that boys who undergo surgery at young age between 15 months and 18 months have high success rate in comparison to the men who go for the surgery in their later life. But generally parents of kids experience the fear of deformation of their son’s penile appearance in his adulthood.
Parents whose son is diagnosed with hypospadias have basic question that the surgery done at young age can affect his manhood so they let their child grow with hypospadias. We encourage such parents to consult reconstructive urologist once your son is 15 months old.
In addition, it is advised not to circumcise the kid if diagnosed with hypospadias, as sometimes in the surgery, that foreskin is required.Parents should lessen their worries as if an expert urologist performs the surgery, it does not affect the manhood of your kid at all. We advise parents to keep a regular follow up with the urologist after the surgery as most cases are completely treated in stages.
