Abstract

ABSTRACT: Plastic surgeons reconstruct hard and soft tissues in many parts of the human body. Penile reconstruction is unique in that the target tissue has to be soft but intermittently rigid. There are many ways to treat penile defects. The ideal reconstruction must take into considerations sensation, cosmesis, and erectile functions. There is limited literature available on the management of penile glans defect. In this report, we present the reconstruction of penile glans defect, after surgical excision of Bowen disease, using a bipedicled foreskin flap of bucket handle type. It is easy to perform and highly effective, and importantly, both cosmetic and functional outcomes at 1-year follow-up were quite satisfactory.
