Suprapubic fat pad is placed directly on the area above penis. This fat pad may enlarge with aging and weight gain. Usually despite man’s weight loss, sufficient weight loss may not be provided in this area. Existence of big fat pad and fat tissue may cause perception of penis getting smaller.
With liposuction, the excess fat tissue in this region can be removed. Additionally, excess skin and fat tissue can be removed with surgery. This procedure, at the same time, can be operated together with an abdomen lifting (abdominoplasty) surgery.
