The Prince Albert Piercing Reversal Procedure

It can happen to any of us – we get excited about a new hair style, tattoo idea, or adding another piercing to our bodies. Sometimes, however, these decisions can create bigger problems once we decide they’re no longer our style. In the case of a Prince Albert piercing, it can unfortunately have lasting effects on your health and wellness, even after the piercing is removed. 

What is Prince Albert (PA)?

The Prince Albert (PA) is one of the most common male genital piercings. The PA is “a ring-style piercing that extends along the underside of the glans from the urethral opening to where the glans meets the shaft of the penis.” The related “reverse Prince Albert piercing” enters through the urethra and exits through a hole pierced in the top of the glans.

Complications

Proponents of PA piercing report that this type of body manipulation enhances the sexual experience. However, this type of piercing can often lead to significant complications, including infection and expansion of urethral tear and erosion. The piercing can also cause urine to flow through the urethra and the piercing hole, leading to two streams.
