Yes, penile curvature correction can affect the natural curvature or direction of the erect penis. This is because the surgery involves making changes to the tunica albuginea, which is the tough outer layer of the penis. The tunica albuginea is responsible for the penis’s rigidity and shape.
During penile curvature correction surgery, the surgeon may make a cut in the tunica albuginea on the concave side of the penis. This allows the surgeon to straighten the penis and reduce the curvature. However, it can also cause the penis to curve slightly in the opposite direction.
The amount of curvature correction that can be achieved without affecting the natural curvature of the penis depends on a number of factors, including the severity of the original curvature, the location of the plaque, and the patient’s individual anatomy.
In some cases, the surgeon may need to make additional cuts in the tunica albuginea or perform a graft to achieve the desired results. This can increase the risk of complications, such as erectile dysfunction and penile shortening.
It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of penile curvature correction surgery with a qualified urologist before making a decision about whether or not to have the surgery.
It is important to note that all penises have a natural curvature, even those that do not have Peyronie’s disease. This curvature is usually slight and does not interfere with sexual function. However, in some men, the natural curvature of the penis may be more pronounced. This is not necessarily a problem, but it can be a concern for some men.
The direction of the erect penis also varies from man to man. Some men have penises that point straight up, while others have penises that point slightly to the left or right. This is also normal and does not usually affect sexual function.

Penile curvature correction procedures are typically designed to address abnormal or excessive curvature of the erect penis, with the goal of straightening it or reducing the curvature. The intent is to bring the erect penis into a more natural and straightened position. The specific effect on the natural curvature or direction of the erect penis depends on the type of procedure performed and the individual’s unique anatomy.
Here are some key points:
- Correction of Abnormal Curvature: Penile curvature correction procedures aim to correct abnormal or excessive curvature, which can interfere with sexual function and cause discomfort during intercourse. The goal is to make the penis straighter and more functional.
- Preservation of Natural Curvature: Surgeons take into consideration the natural curvature and anatomical characteristics of the individual when planning and performing these procedures. The goal is not to eliminate all curvature but to reduce it to a more functional and aesthetically pleasing level.
- Individual Variation: Every person’s penis has a unique shape and curvature. Surgeons work with each individual’s anatomy to achieve the best possible outcome while preserving a natural appearance.
- Functional and Aesthetic Goals: The primary goal of penile curvature correction is to improve sexual function and alleviate discomfort. A secondary goal is to achieve a cosmetically pleasing appearance.
