There are several names for this procedure: phalloplasty, penoplasty or simply penis enlargement. This form of surgery includes procedures to change and improve the appearance of the male genitals. This is a relatively new field in aesthetic surgery, however along the years this type of operation has become more popular. Numerous patients feel inhibited in their sexual relations and are also distressed by situations linked to swimming or sports.
The length of the penis can vary from a few centimeters up to 15 centimeters while at rest. In a recent study where penile length and dimensions measured at flaccid and erect status dimensions in 80 physically normal men before and after pharmacological erection, it has been found that the mean flaccid length was 8.8 cm., stretched length 12.4 cm. and erect length 12.9 cm.
Neither patient age nor size of the flaccid penis accurately predicted erectile length. Stretched length most closely correlated with erect length. The reason why most patients want a penis enlargement is not that they feel the penis is too small when erect, but that is too short while at rest. We can modify the shape and size of your penis through two main procedures: girth enhancement and penis lengthening.
Girth enhancement is accomplished by injecting fatty tissue under the skin of the penis, resulting in a thicker penis. Today, surgeons have gained great experience in using the patient’s own fat for cosmetic application as a filler. New techniques were developed to harvest the fat which resulted in better and longer lasting results where it was placed. Still, criticism of fat as a graft has persisted because of uneven results and unpredictability.
Great strides have been made when it was discovered that adding the patient’s own Stem Cells rich resulting in almost complete acceptance of where fat is placed. The processing of these factors – previously common only in a hospital setting – are now available in the outpatient office setting resulting in the use of fat with its adherent advantages including no risk of foreign body reaction or rejection and usually an abundant supply. Scarring is minimal, usually one fourth of an inch, because the only incisions needed are for a small cannula.
Penis widening can be done alone or in conjunction with penile lengthening. We use several methods to help patients get the penile girth gain that is right for them.
Penis lengthening entails cutting the ligament that attaches the penis to the pubic bone. The penis drops forward several inches, causing the part of the penis that is visible to appear lengthened. The two procedures can be performed simultaneously, or as separate procedures.
This type of surgery includes procedures to alter and improve the appearance and function of the male genitals. This is a relatively new field in aesthetic surgery, but in later years this type of operation has become more popular. Many patients feel inhibited in their sexual relations and are also troubled by situations linked to swimming or sports.
