The uniquely complex anatomy of the male genitalia is a subject area of which reconstructive surgeons must remain fully abreast. Comprehensive knowledge of normal anatomy of the penis, scrotum and perineum contributes to excellent surgical outcomes in a variety of cases including congenital abnormalities, trauma, cancer-related extirpation, and aesthetics. This chapter lays the foundation upon which surgeons can strengthen understanding of the male genitalia so as to most appropriately select and design methods of reconstruction. Surgical flexibility accompanies thorough understanding of the unique characteristics and advantages of the male anatomy, which ultimately facilitates the finest care for patients in need of reconstructive surgery. Thus, reconstructive surgeons must remain proficient in this field, as continued elucidation of the intricate anatomy of male genitalia has led to the best possible surgical outcomes.
