Abstract

Male circumcision is a standard surgical procedure to remove part of the foreskin for cultural, religious, or medical reasons such as phimosis. Hypertrophic scars and keloids after male circumcision are very rare postoperative complications. To our knowledge, only a handful of cases have been published previously. In this case report, we present our experience using a running-w-plasty after extralesional excision. Postoperative silicone-gel-sheets have been applied for a duration of 3 months. Using these techniques, we achieved a very satisfactory functional and cosmetic result and our patient still showed no signs of recrudescence 1 year after surgery.
