Several different mechanisms may account for the concealed appearance of the penis. A particular type of concealed penis is the retractile penis, due to dysgenetic fibrous bands tethering the penis to the prepubic subcutaneous tissue. The retractile nature of the concealment can be confirmed by flexion of the hips. A simple technique for surgical correction of the retractile penis is described. While there are many different methods to correct a concealed penis, proper selection of the technique based on understanding of the pathophysiology is critical to a successful outcome.
