Surgical Treatments for a Variety
of Penile Conditions
There are several other conditions that Dr. Solomon is able to treat. Peyronie’s disease is a condition in which scar of the shaft of the penis prevents it from being straight during erections. Patients who fail medical management of this condition may be candidates for surgery that includes removal of the scar and placement of graft material. Other men have had surgery for Peyronie’s disease that leaves them with a shortened penis. Dr. Solomon has experience correcting these problems as well.
Many men have issues with circumcision that was performed either incompletely or incorrectly. Dr. Solomon can correct these problems with surgery. He has also seen patients who have had repeat circumcision that has created a buried penis. Correction of these issues is complex and requires judgment and surgical techniques that Dr. Solomon has perfected over decades of male enhancement surgery.
Scrotal Web Surgery
Scrotal Web Surgery
Some men have a web of skin from their scrotum to the penis shaft that gives a “turkey neck” appearance. This web may interfere with intercourse. Other men dislike the appearance of their scrotum because it’s too long. Dr. Solomon has devised several surgical methods to correct these problems. Satisfaction with these procedures is high and they can be combined with other penis enlargement procedures if desired.
Buried Penis Surgery
Buried Penis Surgery
A buried penis is one that is difficult to see due to its length combined with excess tissue in the pubic area. There are several reasons for this to occur, including birth defects, weight issues or changes after significant weight loss. Surgical treatment may require fat removal, skin removal, stabilization of the shaft skin, or a combination of these procedures. Many men come to Dr. Solomon with these issues asking for a penis length operation or circumcision, either primary or revision. Performing a length procedure or circumcision procedure in a man with this problem will only make it worse. Dr. Solomon has the expertise to determine what procedure is right for you.
Pubic Fat Surgery
pubic pad reduction
Some men will have excess fat in the pubic area. Treatment of this area by liposuction, with skin removal if needed, will enhance the result of any other penis enlargement procedure. Because he is a plastic surgeon, Dr. Solomon has the skill to determine if one of these procedures is for you, along with the skill to perform these body contour procedures.
Circumcision is a commonly performed procedure. In fact, it is usually performed in infancy. However, there are several reasons those men who were not circumcised, as infants will request circumcision as adults. The most common reason is in men who cannot retract their foreskin to have intercourse. These men have a tight foreskin that causes pain when it is retracted, or when they get an erection. Circumcision is required for them to have sex. Another reason for circumcision is hygiene. It is easier to keep the glans of the penis clean and free of build-up of unpleasant materials when the foreskin is removed.
An argument against circumcision is that loss of foreskin may reduce the pleasure of sexual intercourse. However, adults who have been circumcised do not report this when asked.
Men who want penis girth surgery may require circumcision, depending upon their anatomy. Dr. Solomon can determine this at the time of a physical examination.
Some men who have circumcision have an inadequate removal of foreskin that makes their appearance unusual. This is one reason for revision surgery. Other men have circumcision that is complicated by infection, scarring, or poor result. Revision circumcision can provide improvement in appearance for these men.
Circumcision surgery can be performed as an isolated procedure, or in combination with other surgery of the penis and body. It is performed as an outpatient procedure. The operation is painless and pain control after surgery is managed with medication, ice and elevation.

Penile and Pubic Surgery After Weight Loss
Penile and pubic surgery after weight loss
Many men undergo weight loss surgery, or lose weight with diet and exercise. A significant number of these men will have a condition known as a “buried penis.” This occurs when the pubic skin and fat slide down on the penis. This causes the skin of the shaft of the penis to slide, hiding the head of the penis. This condition can be very upsetting for men. Fortunately, there are surgical options to help.
Often, these men will think that they need a revision circumcision. This will actually make the condition worse, allowing the skin of the shaft to continue to slide onto the head of the penis. In addition, some of these men have an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) without attention to the pubic area. Again, this will make the situation worse, by pulling the penis up and into the pubic fat pad. So men who have had weight loss need surgery that will enhance, not reduce, the appearance of their penis. Dr. Solomon has years of experience caring for men with these problems.
Ideally, patients who have lost weight and not had surgery can choose between pubic surgery or abdominal surgery that includes treatment of the pubic area and penis. Dr. Solomon will discuss all of your options and create a plan that works for you. The amount of scarring is related to the extent of the surgery you choose.
Pubic surgery can be combined with release of the ligaments to enhance length if you desire. It can also be combined with scrotal surgery or girth surgery, for those patients who desire it.
Dr. Solomon and his staff are amazing! They go above and beyond to help you feel comfortable in their office. The office is beautifully decorated and offers the type privacy and luxury you’d expect at such an upstanding facility. I would recommend Dr. Solomon to anyone seeking out male enhancement surgery.
Every experience in life is a lesson learned, and what I learned from my first penis enhancement using a fat graft was extremely valuable. I thought I had done thorough and complete research. I thought I was making a sound decision by using fat from my own body. I thought I understood the implications—I was very wrong. The first surgery went well, and it looked great for a week.

Every experience in life is a lesson learned, and what I learned from my first penis enhancement using a fat graft was extremely valuable. I thought I had done thorough and complete research. I thought I was making a sound decision by using fat from my own body. I thought I understood the implications—I was very wrong. The first surgery went well, and it looked great for a week. In next week or so, the fat graft shifted and did not take as intended, leaving lumps, folds, and a wavy look. Lucky for me, most of the fat was absorbed which minimized the overall damage. It wasn’t bad, and I don’t think anyone would notice, but it was a visual reminder of making a poor choice. I can’t recommend this procedure to other others—Please don’t go down this path.
In my quest to correct the look and feel, I used what I learned to the best possible extent. The first experience taught me to ask better questions. It also taught me how to better filter out marketing tactics from science and fact. I also learned more about how the body heals and responds to surgical procedures. I can’t even list how much I learned.
After an intense search, I found Dr. Solomon and his team. I contacted the office, and Jennifer answered the phone. She was, and still is an excellent resource. I explained the situation, and she completely understood how I was feeling. She reassured me, I was not the first person and won’t be the last to elect a fat graft, implant, injection, or other enhancement procedure.
Jennifer was extremely helpful and a valuable colleague in my journey. She answered many of my questions, provided items to consider, and prepared me for the consult with Dr. Solomon. She knows so much about Dr. Solomon’s procedure and what is offered by competitors, she probably could write the book on the subject. She also shared tons of tacit knowledge regarding the post-op process and healing, while other physicians gloss over after care and state the recovery process it’s a fast and easy—it can be, but it could also have a few setbacks. She made sure the administrative items were prepared with the correct information, and was exceptional at resolving concerns. Thank you so much Jennifer for all of your contributions to my journey.
After considering many options, I chose Dr. Solomon to perform corrective surgery from the previous fat graft, and insert a new graft for girth. Three years after my procedure, I am EXTREMELY satisfied with Dr. Solomon and his team. The outcome was excellent, and Dr. Solomon was there every step of the way, from the very beginning to current day.
From the early stages of researching corrective procedures and doctors, it was very clear to me, that Dr. Solomon possessed deep experience and knowledge–a critical factor in my decision. I was impressed he knew the implications, issues, and risk of the procedures available in today’s market. He provided facts and the science for me to make my own informed decision. He had also performed many corrective procedures with positive outcomes—Yep, I am one of them. In my opinion, his graft procedure is the only one that provides a long-term durable solution with a uniform look and feel for the entire penis and the surrounding areas. Since it uses proven graft materials, it has a higher probably of success than other options.
Using grafts that are proven to have positive outcomes by the medical industry, is one part of the formula for success. Dr. Solomon graft selection process is very methodical and scientific to obtain a good result. He chose the graft material and size specifically for my body based on a number of factors. He measured and cut the graft material to fit me the best, rather than using a small, medium, and large approach. He was thoughtful to provide complete coverage by going beyond the shaft of the penis in the surrounding public and scrotum area. If only the shaft is covered, you will feel a difference at the base and may visually notice a difference in girth. I think his graft selection method is better than using a single material for all patients.
In addition to providing complete coverage with the graft, Dr. Solomon made every effort to prevent and minimize potential scaring. For my procedure, he made the incision down the midline of the scrotum. Other doctors stated they would place the incision at the base of the penis, which is more visible. The end result was no scarring, and I have to look very hard to see anything had been done.
Dr. Solomon’s emphasis on after care and follow up is another part of his formula for success—a really critical one. Dr. Solomon places a high degree of effort and focus on post-op care. In contrast, other doctors send you home with an instructional DVD, and follow up with text messages. He made daily in-person visits for days after the procedure to ensure the healing process was on the right track, and would adjust the protocol as needed. Even after I went home, Dr. Solomon contacted me on a regular basis to make sure I was doing well and healing. In office visits were always encouraged, but Dr. Solomon understands that video calls or a simple voice call is may be more practical if you don’t live in the immediate area. If I had any question or concern about the after care or healing process, Dr. Solomon or Jennifer was always available and happy to provide the correct and best answer. If I elect to repeat the procedure for increased girth, I would choose Dr. Solomon again.
A special thanks to Dr. Solomon and his staff for putting up with my endless questions both before and after surgery. I just had my post op photos taken and am even more pleased than I thought when comparing with my before photos. I recommend Dr. Solomon to anyone looking for a talents surgeon who will be completely honest with you and that is there for you every step of the way!! Thank you, Dr. Solomon!!
I have to review Dr. Solomon because I see so little reviews and some of these other doctors here have dozens and hundreds (many undeserving) and Dr. Solomon is top of the line, a hidden gem. I traveled several times from New York City to Philadelphia to see him. Why would anyone in NYC bother going to a plastic surgeon in Philadelphia when NYC is practically the capital of plastic surgeons? I won’t get into the details of what possessed me at first, and anyway...Read Full Review
I have to review Dr. Solomon because I see so little reviews and some of these other doctors here have dozens and hundreds (many undeserving) and Dr. Solomon is top of the line, a hidden gem. I traveled several times from New York City to Philadelphia to see him. Why would anyone in NYC bother going to a plastic surgeon in Philadelphia when NYC is practically the capital of plastic surgeons? I won’t get into the details of what possessed me at first, and anyway it is not important, what’s important is I came back again and again and scheduled my revision surgeries with him, specifically a breast lift revision and a stomach lipo revision. He made such huge improvements that my original plastic surgeon even refused to touch telling me no improvement is possible. Dr. Solomon proved him wrong. Dr. Solomon has an excellent eye for what will work and won’t work. He turned down a few of my requests because he said it just won’t look good or wont work, and he still significantly improved my overall look. He’s just a great and extremely talented doctor, a great plastic surgeon, his staff is great, he takes his time with you, his staff takes his time with you, he consults via email if needed, he’s high tech but he doesn’t do anything trendy, he has excellent judgment on which way to go. It just feels like a luxury high end experience somehow, and yet he is so low key and sincere and just seemed like a great human being, which is so rare in top plastic surgeons I’ve seen. Anyway, I can go on and on singing his praises. If you somehow stumbled upon this, walk and don’t run to see him. You won’t regret it. And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me, I may be slow in responding, but I will respond eventually. You’ll see from my posting history I’ve been posting since 2008 on and off!
