Penis Enlargement Surgery

Penis Enlargement Surgery – Is it Worth the Risk?

Wanting a bigger penis is something a lot of men are obsessed with, it’s kind of crazy when you think about it, especially considering the fact that there have been so many surveys and statistics on how women feel about penis size.

For the most part, most women are satisfied with the size of their partner’s penis, however, some women have said that they prefer a thicker penis to a longer one, yes, most women do say girth is more important than length.

So why all of the hype?

The movie and adult porn industry probably has some degree of influence on men wanting a bigger penis, and while some men are well endowed, most men fit into the average penis size category.

What is considered average? If you look at country statistics, the average penis size can range between 4 – 6 inches.

Are you a shower or a grower?

You have probably heard of the term “shower or grower”, meaning there are those men whose penis length when flaccid is almost the same size as when erect (shower), when the penis is erect the size increase is minimal.

Other men have a shorter thicker penis when flaccid, however, when the penis is erect it can almost double in size if this is you, you’re a (grower).

This can be very uncomfortable, especially in a public place such as a public bath or dressing area.

There is nothing wrong with wanting a bigger penis, the question is what is the best way to achieve that?

Doctors will obviously tell you that the only way to make your penis bigger is by surgery.

What a lot of them don’t tell you is that the size increase is not that much and the risk far exceeds the benefits.

Penis surgery is a lucrative business, the average penis lengthening procedure can cost anywhere between $3500.00 – $9500.00. That’s pretty expensive, especially considering that you may only get a half inch of increase in size.

What is penis enlargement surgery?

There are many penis enlargement methods available and surgery is one of them, any surgical procedure can have risks and penis enlargement surgery is no different.

There are two different procedures that may be performed and one is for increasing length and the other for increased girth ‘thickness’.

Suspensory ligament release

Cutting the suspensory ligament to lengthen the penis is the most common surgical method.

The suspensory ligament anchors the penis to the inside of the pelvic area and is responsible for providing support when you have an erection.

Cutting the suspensory ligament lets the penis hang more and gives the appearance of a longer penis. The actual length you may achieve is slightly just under a half inch.

Cutting the suspensory ligament will give men a small increase in penis size so it makes your penis look bigger when flaccid.

The issue with detaching the ligament is that in spite of the penis being completely erect during arousal it will point downward (there is nothing to support it),  unfortunately, in some cases, the results have not been favorable.

Complications from surgery:

  • Scarring
  • Fat buildup
  • Loss of sensitivity
  • Deformity of the penis

The only reason men would want to have this procedure done would be in the case of having a micro penis which is considered anything under 2.5 inches in length,  or because of some congenital defect, otherwise, surgery should only be considered as a last resort.

Surgical Thickening (Fat Transfer)

Surgical thickening to increase the thickness and length of the penis can be done in two ways, one is by fat transfer, this procedure involves injecting liposuctioned fat from the groin or abdominal area into the ‘dartos fascia’ underneath the skin of the penile shaft. This is a similar procedure used in facial rejuvenation.

Other injection procedures use soft tissue fillers under the skin of the penis and help stimulate collagen production.

The procedure usually takes about an hour, after the procedure is done you have to wait 4-6 weeks before you can have sex again.

Using this method can add up to delivers considerable thickness to the penis.

The other method is placing grafts of the dermis which are extracted from underneath the skin of the groin or inner thigh and then placing these grafts underneath the penile tissue.

In the case of a  fat transfer procedure in less than a years time men will lose over 90% of the size gains requiring the procedure to be repeated again.

Possible complications from injections:

  • Potential to damage blood vessels
  • Potential nerve damage
  • Fat necrosis (cell death)
  • Swelling
  • The material can shift causing lumps in the penis

Is surgery right for you?

Penis enlargement surgery is usually considered a procedure that is safe and comes with minimal risk, the truth is there are risks and these should be considered beforehand.

Penis enlargement surgery should not be taken lightly, while most procedures are fairly common it does come with potential risks that can affect your sexual health over the long term.

Men who are serious about increasing the length of their penis might be better off inquiring about all natural methods using penis pumps using a traction device, they can be just as effective plus unlike with surgery, there are no side effects.
