Scrotics Aesthetics

 

El paso de los años produce un agrandamiento de la piel escrotal, lo cual da una apariencia de envejecimiento dentro de la estética íntima masculina.

Otras alteraciones como la poliquistosis producen un estiramiento de la piel escrotal. Cuando hay un agrandamiento del escroto, el paciente refiere incomodidad o malestar estético y funcional.

El Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra utiliza laser technology para disminuir el tamaño de las bolsas escrotales y mejorar la estética y el confort del paciente que lo padece. Es un procedimiento que se hace con anestesia local, en forma ambulatoria, pudiendo al otro día el paciente continuar con su actividad diaria.

Postoperative

La cicatriz que deja este procedimiento suele ser muy poco evidente. Con este procedimiento se logra mejorar la estética y eliminar molestias funcionales.

Entre los 15 a 20 días de la operación, el paciente puede reiniciar su vida sexual y deportiva.

Si los pacientes presentan cistocele or varicocele, primero deberán resolver el factor desencadenante de aumento del escroto.

Lichen sclerosus or scleroatrophic

It is a rare disease that creates white spots on the skin, which becomes thinner than normal. It is a chronic inflammatory skin pathology, which mainly affects women in the vulvar and perianal area. In the case of men, it is usually located in the foreskin and the glans. The age of onset is variable and may appear at any time (including children's age), although it is more frequent in older ages.

What areas does it affect?

Lichen sclerosus can affect the skin of any part of the body. However, it most often attacks the vulva, the foreskin of the penis, or the skin around the anus. It is not a contagious disease.

Causes

Its cause is not well known, it may be due to an overactive immune system or previous damage to the skin. This condition commonly occurs in postmenopausal women, although cases are also reported in men and children. In women, lichen sclerosus et atrophicus usually affects the vulva. In boys and men, who are not circumcised, the risk of suffering from this disease increases, since it generally affects the foreskin.

Symptoms

One of the symptoms of Lichen is pain during sexual intercourse, itching, fissures, blisters. It can produce scars that narrow the vaginal opening. It is very frequent that the patients who suffer from lichen suffer alterations of the desire and the possibility of having sexual relations.

Treatment for vulvar or perianal lichen sclerosus

He Dr Ricardo Hoogstra performs a treatment at the Caballito branch in the surgical area Carbon dioxide laser both inside the vagina and the external genital area. This treatment is associated with the application of a large quantity of plasma enriched in platelets.

The combination of the Aphrodite Laser plus rich plasma produces a repairing and rejuvenating effect of the treated area. Treatment with Carbon Dioxide Laser in conjunction with the application of platelet-enriched plasma increases vascularity, elasticity and trophism of the affected tissue.

We consider that before or at the same time of performing this treatment it is convenient to perform biopsies to confirm through histopathological studies that what we are really treating is a Scleroatrophic Lichen. This procedure is performed under sedation and the patient must carry out previous studies. It is ambulatory and effective.

Short bridle

When the frenulum is too short it restricts the movement of the foreskin, which causes discomfort during sexual activity.

It is normal to confuse the short frenulum with the concept of phimosis, but it's not the same. With a simple examination, it will be possible to determine what your pathology is and propose the pertinent solutions.

What happens if the man's frenulum is cut?

If the penis is erect and the frenulum is too short it causes the head of the penis-glans to deviate downwards. This causes pain, difficulty in penetration and can even cause tears and bleeding. These tears when healing can shorten the frenulum more and aggravate the situation.

Frenuloplasty: short frenulum operation

He Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra performs this procedure under local anesthesia, which is very well tolerated by the patient. After the anesthesia is applied, a minimal incision of the frenulum is made with a Carbon Dioxide Laser. Next, 3 resorbable points are given which fall off on their own after 14 days. The procedure takes 10 minutes. Once completed, the patient continues his normal life. The procedure is not painful, nor is the recovery. It is recommended not to have sex for 20 days. After this the patient will have a normal life and sexuality.
