Male Cosmetic Surgery

So what exactly is male cosmetic surgery?  Looking and feeling one’s best goes hand in hand.  Self-image and self-esteem have been linked by several peer reviewed studies (see references below).  Male cosmetic surgery involves meticulously performing the initial or revision procedures on the male genitalia to provide an aesthetically pleasing and optimally functioning outcome.

Over the past 20 years we have developed new techniques as well as modified existing standard techniques that provide both an optimal cosmetic and functional result. We perform many standard procedures such as vasectomy reversal, circumcisions, testicular and penile implants with innovative techniques and painstaking attention to detail to assure the best possible outcome for our patients. We strive to have our patients completely satisfied.

The following pages discuss several of these procedures.  Please feel free to contact Dr. Gilbert directly for answers to your medical questions.
