Also known as a Penis Enlargement, Penis Enhancement, Phalloplasty or the Penoplasty and involves any technique aimed to increase the size of the penis, where some procedures aim to increase total length, others may increase the shaft’s girth. The Penile Implant is an alternative technique that is more common among those with erectile dysfunction. The procedure is performed under general anesthetic and can be completed in 45-60 minutes.
The most common procedure involves lengthening the flaccid penis by releasing the muscle at the Mons Pubis, but there is also the option for a fat transfer, which combined with liposuction, is particularly useful for increasing the girth. Note that these procedures aide in increasing the length of the flaccid penis only, the erect length remains the same. To increase the length of the erect penis, a form of penile disassembly is required, where the head is detached and the extra tissue is grafted into the shaft – this technique takes longer and is more expensive. All techniques require two nights of hospitalization and a recovery time of 10-14 days at your destination.
Before proceeding with the surgery, you will have an extensive consultation with your surgeon to determine whether the procedure is suitable for you. You will discuss your expectations and it is important to be realistic to avoid disappointment. You should also inform your surgeon about the reasons why you want to undergo the surgery. Your surgeon will get you to do a physical examination to find out if you have any medical conditions and to help your surgeon evaluate the best treatment option for your specific case. During the surgery you will be given general anesthesia, meaning you will be asleep and will not feel anything. The most common types of penis augmentation surgery are:
- Penis girth surgery is aimed to increase the thickness of your penis in a flaccid and erect state. Your surgeon will perform a small liposuction procedure to harvest fat from the abdomen, thigh, or buttock. The fat is then purified with a system to improve the quality of the fat. The last step is distributing the fat along the shaft of the penis to thicken it. Some studies claim an increase in girth of around 1.4 cm to 4 cm.
- Penis length surgery can give the flaccid penis an average of 2 cm, but it cannot change the size of the erect penis. During the surgery, your surgeon will cut the ligament where the penis is attached to the pubic bone. Then, your surgeon will perform a skin graft at the base of the penis to allow for extra length.
- Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove fat from below the abdomen which can reveal up to 2 cm of the penis that had previously been buried. By removing excess fat around the pubic area, a partly buried penis can appear more prominent. This procedure works well with men who have a large tummy. However, if the man puts on weight again, the fat will return to the pubic area and may bury the penis again.
- Penuma is a device inserted under your penis skin to make it longer and wider. It is crescent-shaped and made of medical-grade silicone. It comes in three sizes: large, extra-large, and extra-extra-large. It will be designed to fit your penis shape. Your surgeon will make an incision in your groin area just above the base of your penis to insert the Penuma. The device will stretch the penis skin and tissues to make your penis look and feel larger. If you are not already circumcised, you will need to do it before the procedure.
Length of Stay in Destination
In general, it takes around 45 minutes to an hour to complete a penis augmentation. You may go back to your hotel on the same day of the surgery after the effects of the anesthesia wears off. However, there are some cases where the patient will require a two nights stay at the hospital. Plan to stay in the country for at least 10 to 14 days. During your stay, it will allow for the initial recovery and you will attend follow-up checkups.
You will need to take some time off work after this surgery, normally one week if your job does not involve any physically demanding activity. If your job involves a lot of moving around, you can go back within 2 weeks. Avoid any strenuous activity, including exercise for around six weeks. Do not have any sexual intercourse or masturbation for around four weeks. It may take around three to six months before you will see the completed result.
Your surgeon will give you a set of instructions about post-operative care and you will need to follow the instructions. Pain and soreness following the surgery are normal and your surgeon will give you painkillers to control the pain. A surgical dressing will cover your penis, which will need changing at intervals. You will need to keep the area clean, but avoid getting water on the area. Use a flannel or a sponge to clean the area. Your surgeon may ask you to massage your penis on a daily basis to prevent lumps from forming on the surface and to stop it from becoming lop-sided. Avoid heavy lifting and other strenuous activity and wait for a month before you resume any sexual activities.
The success rate is high and the procedure can give the patient a significant confidence boost. Patients often cite the improvement of premature ejaculation (sexual stamina) and increased libido. Feeling and sensitivity are not affected and the patient is still able to ejaculate as normal, therefore the chances of conceiving are not impacted. A study found that 81% of patients who had Penuma rated their results high or very high. Nonetheless, there are still risks and complications that you will need to be aware of. For Penis length surgery, the cut ligament may not provide the support it originally did, which could lead to less satisfactory erections. In addition, it can also cause pain during sex. For girth surgery, some patients may experience scarring, disfigurement, infection, and lumpiness. Other complications include implant coming apart, and blood cloths.
Alternatives to a Penis Augmentation Procedure
The penile implant is an alternative technique, but it is more common among those with erectile dysfunction. Non-surgical alternatives to this surgery are pills, lotions, vacuum devices, penile extenders, and jelqing (stretching techniques). However, no study confirms the success of those procedures.
