17-YEAR OLD WITH 18 CM LONG PENIS REQUESTED FOR PENIS REDUCTION SURGERY
An 17-year old American teen requested and underwent world's first penis reduction surgery.
His penis grew too large and restricted his movements. He was unable to have sex or play competitive sports.
He also had difficulty wearing underwear due to the size of his penis which is an impressive 7-inches long and 10-inch in circumference when flaccid.
He was also embarrassed of its visibility underneath regular clothing.
Due to his past history of priapism – a medical condition whereby unwanted erections occurred and caused abnormally shaped blood cells which block vessels in the penis, his penis is constantly looks bloated, his penis did not grow in size during erections but merely become firmer.
Surgeon in-charge of his case, Dr Rafael Carrion, a urologist at University of South Florida said the boy's penis is shaped like an American football.
'It sounds like a man's dream – a tremendously inflated phallus – but unfortunately although it was a generous length, it's girth was just massive, especially around the middle', Dr Carrion added 'You don't normally have men complaining about this kind of thing. These are very unique cases.'
