Aim: We aimed to evaluate the parents' view of the cosmetic outcome after hypospadias surgery. Materials and Methods: Between January 2017 and December 2020, 70 patients aged between 2 and 7 years underwent surgical correction of hypospadias. Group 1 had 35 patients (coronal: 6, distal: 19, and mid-penile: 10) assigned for tubularized incised plate urethroplasty (TIPU) with modified foreskin reconstruction. Group 2 had 35 patients (coronal: 4, distal: 22, and mid-penile: 9) assigned for TIPU and circumcision. Parents were assessed with the Pediatric Penile Perception Score (PPPS). Results: Parent satisfaction for the position and shape of the urethral opening, shape of the glans, penile skin, and length exhibited no statistically relevant difference between the group. Parent satisfaction with the appearance of the genitals in Group 1 was relatively high 2.60 ± 0.55, as compared to Group 2 1.77 ± 0.49 which is statistically significant (P < 0.00028). Conclusion: Our experience shows good early cosmetic results of foreskin reconstruction and high parental satisfaction. Foreskin reconstruction should constitute a key element of the final result to restore a penis with an appearance as normal as possible.
