Steps to take before Meatoplasty
A physical examination will be done by the doctor at Medanta, to detect the narrowed meatus. A sample of the urine will also be collected to test for a urinary tract infection as the cause of any problem. Past medical records will also be studied by the doctor.
What happens during the procedure?
Meatoplasty is done under general anaesthesia. The surgeon will measure the opening using a soft surgical instrument and will make a surgical cut. Later, the doctor will apply antiseptic on the wound. Before making the surgical incision, the doctor is likely to apply scrub on the penis. The sterile cloth is used to wipe it off.
Post-surgery, oral painkillers may be required to relieve the patient from any pain. Pain ointments can also help. Usually, the patient will feel easy to urinate in warm water. A lubricating ointment may also be applied on the patient’s penis to give him comfort.
