Will Scrotal Reduction Affect My Testosterone Levels?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I want to have scrotal reduction. I’m an athlete and I am use to working out. For the last sic months I have been having trouble from the stretched out skin on my scrotum and I’m not able to workout as I used to do.
Please help me as I love working out and I’m not able to workout because of this discomfort. The main reason for choosing scrotal lift is to remove my discomfort while doing exercise and I also don’t like its appearance. I am vyoung and not married and want to know if this will it affect my sex life if I have scrotoplasty? I have heard that it effects sperm quality and testosterone hormone levels which will be not good. Please clarify my questions.
Waiting for your reply, thank you
A: Scrotal reduction is a skin removal procedure that tightens and lifts up the scrotum. Such skin removal is done along the medial raphe which is a natural midline skin crease of the scrotum. There is no negative effect on sperm production or testosterone levels as the testicles are not affected in the procedure.
