Traumatic penile amputation and re-implantation or refashioning is scarcely reported in the literature. We present our case, the first report of successful glans refashioning in an 11-year-old boy, using the Bracka (refashioning) technique after complete glans penis amputation from a dog bite injury, with unsuccessful re-implantation due to the nature of the injury, during the dog bite. We elaborate on the process, technique, as well as the satisfactory postoperative results of the abovementioned procedure.
