The Specifics

What is a scrotoplasty (a.k.a. scrotal lift)?

A scrotoplasty (a.k.a. scrotal lift) is a plastic surgery procedure to reduce the size of the scrotum and reposition the scrotum for improved aesthetics and function. Scrotal elongation can occur due to aging or trauma, or can be genetically correlated. Depending on the needs of the candidate, a scrotal lift may involve removal of excess tissue, tightening of the cremaster muscle, and/or tissue grafting for structural support. A scrotal lift can help reduce pain and discomfort associated with poor scrotum size or positioning.

What cosmetic concerns does a scrotal lift procedure treat?

Who is the ideal candidate for a scrotal lift procedure?

The ideal candidate for a scrotal lift is experiencing discomfort or pain due to excessive scrotal length, or is dissatisfied with the appearance of their scrotum. A scrotal lift is not recommended for those who have not sought professional medical advice for an evaluation of scrotal pain.

What is the average cost of a scrotal lift procedure?

A scrotal lift can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $8,500. The actual cost of a scrotal lift is dependent upon location, board certified plastic surgeon, and length and involvement of the plastic surgery.
