Urinary Disorders

Inverted Penis



My husband has an inverted penis which causes him difficulty when going to the loo. What options or treatments are available to him?


Inverted penis is not a term that I am familiar with. Buried penis is a circumstance in which the penis is buried by pre-pubic fat- this may be what you are describing and in those cases weight loss may be indicated although pre-pubic fat is difficult to eliminate by diet alone. Consultation with a plastic surgeon would be indicated to determine if liposuction might be beneficial. If this is not the situation, then please rephrase the question with more detail.
