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.
