Scrotox Surgery Is Real, Exactly What It Sounds Like

How to keep your plums from turning into raisins

At a certain age, some parts of the male anatomy start to sag — and we don’t mean your earlobes.

To stop scrotums from heading south, some guys have started to pay upwards of $1,500 to undergo a tightening and/or smoothing procedure called Scrotox that corrects low-hanging fruit.


In addition to stopping the non-NYE-related ball drop, the Scrotox surgery also supposedly cuts down on wrinkling and sweating while making testes appear bigger and fuller than they did before.

Again, really.

While speaking with the Cosmetic Surgery Times (also a real thing, alarmingly), Beverly Hills dermatologic surgeon Dr. Jason Emer said he has been investigating Scrotox treatments at the request of some of his patients.

“It’s not only cosmetic,” according to Dr. Emer. “My marathon runners and cyclists who get inner thigh rubbing and irritation from sweat, benefit from this treatment as it decreases skin burn. I think it’s a trend that people will start hearing more about, as there is significant demand.”

If you agree with the Doc and would like his services, drop him a line on Facebook. Otherwise, we’d recommend watching this SNL skit about Scrotox and then let’s never speak of it again.
