Among the complications of penile prosthetic surgery, the SST deformity is uncommon. Nonetheless, this functional and cosmetic complication affects patient and partner. We describe a modified corrective technique of glandular stabilization and repositioning specifically designed for the inflatable penile prosthesis. The pericoronal glandular fascia is secured to the tunica albuginea by protecting the underlying inflatable cylinder and avoiding tunical plication. This technique minimizes the risk of cylinder perforation and penile sensory loss and foreshortening.
