|One man's horribly botched
These are all photos of the same penis.

Buried Penis - This condition may arise from natural causes and/or
overly "aggressive" circumcision. The shaft of the penis is buried below
the surface of the pubic skin. A true congenital buried penis is rare. It is
caused by an abnormally large pad of fat over the pubic bones and dense
tissue that holds and pulls the penis inward. The skin of the shaft is
pushed forward over the glans, giving the appearance of an unusually long
foreskin. Circumcising an unrecognized buried penis can remove shaft
skin as well as the foreskin, making the case even worse. If the penis
was not buried already, removing too much shaft skin when circumcising
can bury it by pulling it down into the pubic fat. A second circumcision may
be incorrectly performed on patients with various causes of concealment,
preventing repairs made by using the remaining shaft skin or foreskin.
Instead the boy will need a skin graft.
Boys with a buried penis are often told that they will grow out of it, and
many cases will improve, but some will never have a penis that looks as
long or works as well as it might. A boy with a deeply buried penis may be
ridiculed by other boys. If he has no visible penis when he is standing up,
he may have to sit down to urinate.
Buried penis can be corrected by (more) surgery, cutting out pubic fat and
sewing down the skin of the groin and scrotum.
Hairy Shaft - The removal of virtually all of the normal shaft skin has
pulled up hair-bearing skin from the base of the penis and scrotum to the
circumcision scar line. Not only unsightly, the hair interferes with comfort
during intercourse. Arrow 1 shows the circumcision scar with hair
growing right up to it. Arrow 2 shows scrotal skin pulled up on the penile
shaft. Obviously, the location of hair-bearing skin cannot be judged when
circumcision is done to a child.
The shaft of the penis is normally hairless, but erection of a tightly
circumcised penis can pull hairy scrotal skin on to the shaft, causing
discomfort on intercourse.
Double meatus (opening) . This is caused by untreated meatal ulcer or
a complication of treatment for meatal stenosis. This results in a double
stream of urine. Meatal stenosis occurs in 1/3 of all victims of Periah
Scarred Glans - "My parents said 'There was one complication, which
could have been serious. The technique back then to get the least
possible scarring was to slide a clear plastic tube over the cut surface,
this was so tight that we got the doctor to cut it off after a couple of days,
but still the pain persisted, we called the doctor in again another couple of
days later and he discovered that a second clear sleeve was on there!'
Therefore another reason for the scar around the glans could be that this
tube was so tight that the end of it cut into me, which may explain why the
scars are deeper and wider at both sides, where the glans start to
protrude from the shaft." [This could be a reference to a PlastiBellTM.]
This scar is also visible on the side and corona of this man's penis in the
above "double stream of urine" photo. See arrows on photo above.

circumcision, then I will be pleased."
