Male genital enhancement and corrections are sometimes requested by patients. These can also be done satisfactorily in highly selected suitable cases. Sometimes the penis is hidden under an excessively fatty pubis or the length is shortened by previously performed excessive circumcision. In such cases aggressive liposuction of the mon pubis and partial release of the suspensory [restraining] ligament of penis can advance the length. In addition, girth can be augmented as well by fat grafting. Great care is taken in choosing the right individual who can realistically benefit from this and the operation is not generally for everyone.

Other congenital problems like an abnormally placed urinary opening or curvature come under the heading of reconstructive surgery and are discussed elsewhere.
