So now that you realize penis size does matter it’s time for you to get a longer and thicker penis. Maybe you are considering penis enlargement surgery as an option. Remember that going down this route requires plenty of research and knowledge of the surgical procedure.
What is Penis Enlargement Surgery?
In the medical world penis enlargement surgery is known as “Phalloplasty”. The procedure is an artificial modification, construction or reconstruction of the penis using surgery usually for cosmetic purposes.
This type of male surgery still remains a very intriguing and controversial surgical procedure even though it has been around since 1990. Many plastic surgeons will not carry out this surgical procedure due to unpredictable results and the many risks involved.
There are actually two separate surgical procedures required to both thicken and lengthen the penis. There is penis lengthening surgery and of course penis girth enlargement surgery. We look at both below in more detail:
Penis Lengthening Surgery
The most common technique involves cutting the suspensory ligament within the penis and then using plastic surgery to give the penis additional penile skin to cover the new length. Just by cutting and then dividing the suspensory ligament the overall length of the penis can be increased by 0.25 inches.
The skin advancements will result in an average gain of 0.75 inches or more. Unfortunately this procedure can result in a man’s erection pointing downwards rather than upwards. This is because the actual suspensory ligament is responsible for the upwards erection.
Penis Girth Enlargement Surgery
There are two ways to increase penile girth; the first is to inject liposuction fat directly into the skin of the penis shaft. The second is to place grafts of fat and dermis from around the groin area into the penile shafts. Results of doing grafts seem to have better results than by injecting the liposuction fat. So far there has been no data that confirms the overall long-term results of this surgery.
Penis Enlargement Surgery Risks
The worst case scenario as a result of penile surgery is to end up with a non-functional penis. The harm done from penis enlargement surgery is normally permanent and irreversible which is why many medical doctors do not recommend the procedure.
Besides losing functionality in the penis, patients are found to be at risk from infection, blood clots, bruising, blood loss, death to parts of the penis, penis scrotilization, formations of nodules due to fatty irregular lumps, “dog ears” that result from the operation scar and actual sloughing of the skin which is used from enlarging the penis length within surgery.
Should I undergo penis enlargement surgery?
There are three main reasons why you should avoid penis enlargement surgery; it’s potentially risky and unsafe, it’s expensive and the procedure has no guarantee for the results you want. Unless you are really willing to spend the $10k – $15k required for the procedure and really willing to risk your penis for a much larger manhood then you would be better looking at several other penis enlargement techniques.
Remember that surgery should always be your last resort for anything related to your health and that is especially true with something quite as invasive as penile surgery. We would recommend that you use a penile extender because it has been clinically proven to increase penis size and it is much cheaper and safer option than surgery.
