The concealed penis is a long-standing problem that only recently has begun to receive the attention it deserves. We offer a classification for this general disorder, which facilitates the selection of appropriate surgical procedures for these patients. To correct the most common problem, the buried penis, involves removal of localized deposits of fat from the hypogastrium with open surgical or closed suction techniques followed by anchoring of the skin of the base of the penis to the periosteum of the pubis. During the last year we have used this approach successfully in 7 boys with various forms of penile concealment with good results.
