Pictures from before the operation show that it looked something like a rugby ball.
Surgeon Rafael Carrion from the University of South Florida who carried out the operation told Mail Online: ‘There comes a time in every urologist’s career that a patient makes a request so rare and impossible to comprehend that all training breaks down and leaves the physician speechless.
‘That question was “can you make my penis smaller?”.’
For those of you interested, it did not grow any bigger when erect, it just became harder.
Mr Carrion added: ‘Lord knows there’s a global race on how to make it longer and thicker in plastic surgery circles, but very little on how to make it smaller.’
Surgeons made an incision in an old circumcision scar and unwrapped the skin. They then cut out two segments of tissue from each side.
