Procedures to Improve the Appearance of the Meatus and Glans
The ultimate goal of hypospadias repair is to have a near-normal looking penis, functionally and cosmetically. Until 30 years ago, normal appearance of the meatus and the glans was considered a luxury or a secondary issue. Many surgeons were reluctant to operate on patients with distal glanular hypospadias as most of those boys were able to function normally. With modern sophisticated technology, however, most surgeons are now only satisfied when they achieve a near-normal appearing penis for the majority of their patients.
