The teenager requested the operation after his penis pictured on an X-ray grew too large 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 are very unique cases.
The teenager 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 clothing file pic The doctors were able to bypass the urethra - the tube which carries urine through the penis - and all of the nerves that provide sensation.
The teen now has no problem having normal erections and has full sensation.
The doctors did not take final measurements of the penis, although Dr Carrion told MailOnline the result was 'generous'.
Rafael Carrion, urologist at the University of South Florida 'It's slightly longer and slightly thicker than the average male, but now it looks symmetrical, and the patient was very satisfied,' he said.
