Abstract Immediate reconstruction of the penis can save time and significantly reduce postoperative psychological morbidity. A patient suffered a cancerous lesion in his glans penis. After total amputation, an iliac flap based on the superficial circumflex iliac artery was used to reconstruct the penis. The subcutaneous tissue around the vascular pedicle was carefully preserved for enhancing the venous drainage of the new penis. A self-sculptured silicone implant was inserted later to increase the penile rigidity. The advantages of this technique include ready availability, easy mobilisation, hairlessness, elimination of multi-staged procedures, and saving time. The patient is pleased with the operative results.
