Penoscrotal webbing is a condition where the skin of the scrotum is attached to underside of the penis, causing a flap of skin that creates a webbed appearance. Often referred to as a “turkey neck,” the condition can be the result of circumcision, where the tension of the skin underneath the penis causes the scrotum and joining skin to be stretched and lifted up.
Penoscrotal webbing can cause the penis to look significantly shorter and make intercourse uncomfortable, particularly when using a condom.
This effect can be corrected by removing the tissues at the penoscrotal junction using a Z-plasty. If the webbed effect is more severe, the procedure can be combined with a vertical incision leaving both a straight and Z-shaped scar underneath the penis, which fades over time and is concealed by pubic hair.
