Dysmorphophobia and Penile Cosmetic Surgery

Prof. Kevan Wylie MB, MD, DSM, FRCP, FRCPsych, FRCOG

The penis, a symbol of huge importance around masculinity since ancient times has become the hidden anxiety of modern man. Few men will admit to having a fear of, or even the actual presence of a small penis for fear of ridicule and ‘loss of face’. Some men may celebrate their small size. Other men whilst acknowledging a perfectly normal sized penis want to vary the appearance and the use of genital piercing, skin tattoos and ‘body art’ may be seen as a normal extension to self expression. In some circumstances representations of the genitals may become disturbed through a number of mental mechanisms.
