The hidden penis belongs to these “false” short penises and is found in overweight individuals. The penis is normal in form and size, but not very visible, or “hidden”: the excess suprapubic adipose tissue surround the base of the penis at the level of the pubis causing its abnormal appearance.
This condition is also known as pseudo-micropenis insofar as it is a normal penis buried in suprapubic fat (particularly in obese young men). The hidden penis, in addition to significant psychological unease, can also case recurrent urinary tract infections. In most cases, a suprapubic lipectomy is carried out, removing suprapubic fat such that the hidden penis may re-emerge.
