While non-invasive methods can give results and reduce the volume of the calcified plaque, in many cases where the medical condition has been present for more than 6 months, the best option will be to operate on the patient. Surgery will yield the most visible results and will allow our doctors to precisely treat the affected area. That being said, it is important to note that performing this kind of surgery might end up shortening your penis by up to 1-2 cm. Additionally, the occurrence of penile erectile dysfunction is possible, especially if the patient is of older age.
If we manage to catch the disease in its early stages, using the proper medication can stop the plaque buildup, but it won’t be as effective if you’re well into something we like to call the fibrotic phase. Also, medication won’t entirely fix the curvature issue. Great results can be achieved by administered injections directly into the affected area but, as is the case with using medication, you should not expect to resolve the curvature issue entirely. This is why surgery is still considered the best route.
Recovery and Post-Op Care
After the operation, there is a chance that you will require to use a prosthesis for your penis in order to correct the curvature. The time required for wearing this prosthesis varies per patient. If you’ve undergone surgery, we highly recommend avoiding any activities that might hinder the recovery process.
