Umm well this is a first. I’ve never heard of a man wanting to have a smaller package but clearly this situation was one of a kind.
A Florida teenager has successfully undergone the world’s first penis reduction surgery, doctors at the University of South Florida claim.
The unidentified 17-year-old’s “massive” penis was “too large for intercourse,” according to a report published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Shaped like a football, it was almost 7 inches long and had a circumference of 10 inches when it was soft.
“It sounds like a man’s dream — a tremendously inflated phallus — but unfortunately, although it was a generous length, its girth was just massive, especially around the middle,” Dr. Rafael Carrion, the urologist who treated the teen, told the Daily Mail.
The well-endowed patient, who “reported inability to penetrate his partner,” had asked for the operation after the shape of his penis also restricted his ability to play competitive sports, the study says.
“There comes a time in every urologist’s career that a patient makes a request so rare and impossible to comprehend that all training breaks down and leaves the physician speechless,” Carrion reportedly said. Since he was 10, the teen, who has a history of sickle cell disease, had three episodes of priapism — a medical condition in which the penis stays erect for hours — that “progressively” led to his penis deformity, surgeons said in the report.
Doctors were able to make it symmetrical.
The average length and circumference of a penis is about 5 and 3 inches, respectively, according to the study.
