Penis enlargement surgery

If you worry about your penis size, surgical enlargement surgery might help you. Or it may not. You may not even need it at all. If you are set, you should know the pros and cons of penis enlargement surgery.


Do I need penis enlargement?

Many men underestimate their penis size and you may be a victim of misconceptions about yourself in comparison to other men (blame porn and non-expressive partners). So the chances are - you are well within the average.


How does surgery compare to other methods of penis enlargement?

A penis enlargement surgery is dangerous compared to other methods such as penis pumps and jelqing. It is advised that you investigate other methods before thinking about surgery.

Jelqing or manual exercises have shown some promise. It is free but requires a bit of effort and discipline. Penis pumps in particular are the only relatively safe non-invasive method of penis enlargement that is backed by scientific evidence. In addition to being easy to use and fairly cheap, they are becoming widely available. You'll be surprised that their usage is becoming common, partly due to their application treatment of ED (erectile dysfunction) it was research into ED that has shown pumps to be a promising tool for penis enlargement.


Is penis size that important for the quality of sex?

In some ways, a larger penis size helps improve sex however it is not the whole story. Sex is a complicated process and physiology of the two partners requires more than just a penis. On top of physiology, there is the psychology of sex which is even more complicated and perhaps even more important than physiology.

Understandably, you want to increase pleasure for your partner. But when it comes to sex, there are a lot of nuances. One thing for sure that penis size alone is not enough. For instance, as many as 80% of women have difficulty achieving orgasm via vaginal sex and a third struggle whatever the stimulation.


Still, if you want a penis enlargement surgery, let's review types of surgery

Surgery to increase penis length

Surgery to increase penile length is a complex procedure. It involves cutting the suspensory ligament. This is what makes your penis point upwards when erect. This ligament connects the penis to the pelvic area and gives it an upwards bend when it's erect. After ligament is cut, the penis drops downwards and stays there, which will give it an appearance of looking longer. Apart from a somewhat unnatural position, the result of the surgery may also mean that a penis will point downwards when erect and the erection strength may be weakened.



On a plus side, as a working method of penis enlargement, research in 2006 found that the penis enlargement surgery had increased the penis length by an average of 1.3cm, or by half an inch.



On a minus side, only about a third (35%) of patients were happy with the outcome of the procedure.

The cost of the surgical procedure is quite high.

The erect penis may point downwards

Erection may be weaker

As with any surgical procedure, there could be complications.


Surgery to increase penis girth

There has been little research into surgery to increase penis girth but it is still widely practiced and considered to be somewhat safer than surgery to increase penis length.

The procedure itself requires a surgeon to inject/place fat taken from elsewhere in the body into the penis. The source is usually the abdomen, fat has to be of good quality and the reason why it is taken from you is that if you have it in your body already, therefore, it is safer than something alien.

The fat is inserted usually though tiny incisions just below the head of the penis, under the foreskin. These incisions if done correctly by a professional - leave no scars and the stitches dissolve.

Then the procedure requires the patient with a surgeon's help or advice to use a soft-rolled dressing, as a kind of cover to distribute fat evenly across the whole length of the penis. In the first few days after the procedure, any uneven blobs can be re-rolled to even out across the area.

The fat gets absorbed into the body all over so it may also happen after fat injection into the penis. This may result in the fat becoming distributed unevenly under the skin surface which can be corrected by further injections.


Makes the penis somewhat thicker, or girthier, depending on the amount of fat inserted. 

On the plus side, it is a widely practiced method of penis enlargement. Fat, unlike other substances, is relatively safe.



On the minus side, it is still an invasive and potentially dangerous method of penis enlargement.


Lack of availability

Corrections in the follow-up to the original surgery may be required and may cost even more.


Penis enlargement surgery - the verdict

Well, penis enlargement surgery works, but with limited success and a lot of risks. Out of the two, surgery to increase penis girth is safer, after all, most plastic surgery uses fat as a shaping substance.

On the other hand, penis enlargement surgery is costly, there may be other, cheaper, and safer solutions, such as penis pumps mentioned above, which may require time and effort to realize your needs.

Warning about penis enlargement surgery

It is best to discuss all invasive medical procedures with a neutral medical professional to learn about the positives and negatives of the surgery. It is best to seek out an impartial or independent physician, as their answers are more likely to provide the whole picture. Most importantly, don't get your hopes too high up and remember that sex is more than just a penis. Did you know that some women can achieve orgasm from breast stimulation alone?
