Penile Curvature

Having a curved penis (or as commonly can be called having a bent or curved penis), or is something that many men worry about but that is very normal. Not all curvatures are considered pathological. We can say that there is a problem when this curvature affects or hinders sexual intercourse, there are difficulties when urinating or cause pain to the patient.

1. Indication

Curved penises have different characteristics depending on the shape and how this curve has been acquired.

The penis or phallic body can present with DEVIATIONS of various types:

  • – Going up: As is often the case in Peyronie’s disease.
  • – Going down: We usually talk in these cases of curvature of the penis, recurvatum penis, which is generally a congenital disability (birth) and that is observed since the age when the penis has its first erections and. Oftent, it deviates towards down. It usually occurs in large penises.
  • – To the left.
  • – To the right.

The deformity of the penis also varies depending on:

  • – If the deformation is of birth or congenital.
  • – If the deformation is acquired by the passage of time.
  • – If the deformation has been caused by accidental fracture.

There are cases in which the curved penises are associated with the lack of growth of the urethra. If the urinary duct is too short, it produces “deformity,” and this usually causes psychological problems in patients. The deformity of the penis can create insecurity when having sex, and in many cases, this deformity directly affects and hinders sexual intercourse (and even has the risk of billing the phallic limb during sexual play if the curvature is very pronounced).

The penis has two possible clinical forms:

1.1. The curved penis from the birth

The congenital curve of the penis is produced by a malformation of the cavernous and spongy bodies of the penis from the birth of the male. This curvature has as its only solution the surgical intervention.

Do you have pain in the penis?
75% The congenital curve is usually painless, although it is very pronounced.

The specialist must assess when this curve should be operated. This will basically depend on the severity and difficulties that the curved penis causes the patient. It is assessed on the one hand at the physical level, defining the difficulty or even impossibility of penetration of the member during sexual intercourse or when urinating, and on the other hand at the psychological level, taking into account the trauma that is causing the patient.

The “congenital curve of the penis” is a morphological alteration. In most cases a need for correction is detected, when a sexual health problem appears beyond being considered in some cases as cosmetic surgery.

1.2. The bend as a consequence of diseases or injuries

Peyronie’s disease, causes a clear abnormal curvature of the penis in erection, that is, bends noticeably, which can hinder penetration and cause pain during intercourse. It usually appears after age 40 and can be very uncomfortable and painful. Regarding the treatments, the first thing we should know is the time that has elapsed since its appearance, the existing degree of twisting and how this twist affects the sexual relationship. The disease of Peyronie or induratio penis plastica is a disease that inflames the tunica albuginea, which is the fibrous membrane that covers the testicle and that participates in the erection. The origins of this disease are still being studied, but it usually appears related to diabetes, the consumption of certain medications and in some cases after receiving a blow to the limb during the sexual act.

Do you have pain in the penis?

3 out of 4 patients with Peyronie’s Disease have pain in the penis. More than half also have palpable nodules in the penis, retraction, loss of size and some erectile dysfunction.

2. Treatments:

One of the main characteristics of curved penises is the lack of symmetry of the corpus cavernosum. That is to say that usually the curvature of the penis, especially the lateral curvature, entails or is the cause of an asymmetry between both corpus cavernosum.

Iontophoresis can be a solution to the acquired curve of the penis in its early stages. Thanks to iontophoresis we can apply a drug in a profound way that eliminates the nodules that cause the penile curvature.

In more severe cases these problems are solved (for the congenital and acquired curve) through surgical intervention. The biggest problem that this operation usually causes to the patients is the reduction of the virile member. This is because until recently, the only thing that could be done was to cut a longer part of the corpus cavernosum to result in two equal bodies. The greater the curvature, the greater the amount needed to cut.

Thanks to the development and research of this technique in depth, MD Natalio Cruz, head of the medical services of our Clinic, can guarantee that the shortening of the penis in these surgeries is reduced to a minimum, thus allowing to maintain almost in its entirety the natural size of the penis. This procedure involves enlarging, using graft, the shorter cavernous body, and thus making the penis completely symmetrical without reducing the size. Another new method developed is the rotation of the corpus cavernosum. This method, like the previous one, considerably reduces the shortening of the penis thus maintaining 95% of the initial size that the patient had before the intervention.

3. Results:

This problem in 99% of cases has a solution. The penis maintains its sexual and reproductive functionality of 100%. After the operation, the patient retains 95% of the initial size of his penis.

4. Tips:

We must not let time go by, and we must do the surgical intervention at the same moment in which this malformation is detected.
If it is before the male begins to relate sexually much better to start a full and healthy sexual life.

The sexual health of men is very important for their development and emotional stability, taking care of them from a very young age is fundamental.
When dealing with these treatments with patients, we must bear in mind that they usually arrive with fear and distrust due to misinformation.

“The discretion in the consultation, the empathy and the compression with the importance of maintaining the size of the penis are fundamental for a proper understanding doctor/patient in this type of treatments.”

    I have a question regarding the operation for curve treatment.

    What are the side effects. How much does it cost ? How long must i stay in hospital ?

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Russian Federation says:

      Hello Darko, there are no side effects, more than the postoperative itself. Hospital internation its usually less than 24 hours. If you are interested in a budget regarding your own case, please contact us via email in info@andromedi.com

    • Denis Slovenia says:

      after the rotation surgery……. the penis is not cylindrical shape anymore right ? its flat , because of the rotation. Or im wrong ?

      • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

        Well…that it´ s one of the risks If the technique it´s not implemented correctly, but the cylindrical shape should remain intact if the surgeon have experience and knwolege in the rotation method.

  • Jay United States says:

    Penile curveage. I was wonder how it’s possible to get treated. I currently live in the uk and suffer from this problem.

    Thank you

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

      Hi Jay, the best (or we should say, the only one) method to fix the curve it´s surgery. We aply some technique called “rotation”, in wich no penis shortening occurs.

      • darko Slovenia says:

        no penis shortening ?

        • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

          Hello Darko, that´s right no shortening. With the technique used in our center (cavernous corpse rotation) the shortening in other techniques like Nesbit gets solved.

          • darko Slovenia says:

            i saw in videos that there is a 0,5-1 cm lenght loss after surgery.

            How about the care of the penis after the surgery ?

          • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

            Hello Darko. Usually in our center there is no loss with the technique we currently use (cavernous corpse rotation), being 0,5 cm the max lenght loss in some special hard/difficult cases.

            The care after surgery it´s easy. No sex in 30 days, and normal life in 48 hours, making some cures meanwhile if needed.

          • Darko Slovenia says:

            how about girth loss?

          • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

            No grith loss neither, at least with the techniques we use in our center.

          • darko Slovenia says:

            no girth loss with rotation technique? this is impossible :/
            also others doctors told me that this is impossible and that the penis is a bit flat ,not round anymore.

            is this true?

          • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

            We said “no girth loss”, because the girth loss is really imperceptible. No patient complain after surgery about that. In our experience it´s really not clinically relevant to say it.

            Of course this technique can be implemented with less experience by some medical team that is not used applying it, but in our medical center, we are specifically expertised on it.

  • Mahesh says:

    Sir, i have a problem of curvature penis about nearby 60 Degree, sir last time i can not intercourse with someone bcoz of this problem? Sir my que is can i sex with someone ib future? Will i hv to get marry or not?

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

      Hi Mahesh, 60 degrees it´s a big curve, you maybe not be able to make some sexual positions, but that does not mean you are not going to have problems making any kind of sex…just some difficulties.

  • john Romania says:

    Hi. I have A curved penis from birth and its almost 35 degree down. I don’t feel any pain and I want to know does this device (Iontophoresis) fix it?

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

      Hi John. Iontoforesis it´s a metho to aply pharma to the Peyronie disease, not to cure the congenit curvature. To this last, surgery is the only way to achieve it.

  • Fariborz Rezaei United Kingdom says:

    Hi

    I am male and my age is 43 years. I am feeling pain during intercourse. My penis also become bend and feeling dysfunction and ejaculation happened in very short time. I am also suffering in sexual erectile problem and can not enjoy sex for long time. Please advise me and show me the way how I get rid from this problem. I prefer medicine or device rather than surgery.

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:
