Well the only possible way to remove a plaque is by surgery and getting a surgical reconstruction thereby. It has associated risks of decreased penile length and sensitivity.

The best option for men who suffer from Peyronie's disease and erectile dysfunction is to receive an implanted device known as the Internal Penile Pump. This device increases the rigidity of the erect penis as well as improves the curvature without shortening of length. In very rare instances, Internal Penile Pump placement combined with a technique of incisions and grafting (or plication, which is pinching or folding the skin) is indicated if the penile pump alone does not straighten the penis. So thats basically the way to go

Hope it helped.

Let me know if you have any more queries.
