A 17-year-old boy has undergone the world’s first penis reduction surgery, according to the Daily Mail.

The american teenager requested the surgery after his penis grew so large he was unable to have sex or play sports.

Surgeons say the boy’s penis measured almost seven inches in length and had a circumference of 10 inches in a flaccid state, about the size of a grapefruit.

Surgeons described it as being shaped like an American football or rugby ball.

DailyMail adds:

The surgeon who treated the teenager, Rafael Carrion, a urologist at the University of South Florida, told MailOnline: ‘There comes a time in every urologist’s career that a patient makes a request so rare and impossible to comprehend that all training breaks down and leaves the physician speechless.

‘That question was “can you make my penis smaller”?’

The teenager had suffered from several bouts of priapism – an unwanted erection, due to having a condition in which abnormally-shaped blood cells block vessels in the penis, causing it to swell.

These episodes had left his penis bloated and misshapen.

He said he was unable to have sex or play competitive sport, had difficulty wearing his pants due to his ‘large and heavy phallus’, and was embarrassed by how visible it appeared underneath regular clothing.

Though his penis was so large, it did not grow when he had erections – it merely became firmer.

‘His penis had inflated like a balloon,’ said Dr Carrion.

Surgeons decided to slice along an old circumcision scar, unwrapped the skin of the penis, and cut out two segments of tissue from either side, in order to reverse the teen’s condition.

The teenager spent two days in hospital recovering before returning home and is apparently ‘ecstatic’ with his new penis (which is functioning normally again.)

‘It’s slightly longer and slightly thicker than the average male, but now it looks symmetrical, and the patient was very satisfied,’ he said.
