Penis Enlargement Surgery: Does It Really Work?

There are two main types of surgery that help increase the size of the penis: one to increase the length and the other to increase the width. Although this operation can be performed by anyone, it is not offered because it is considered only to enhance body aesthetics.

In addition, this type of surgery usually does not produce the expected results and can even cause serious complications such as penile deformity, scarring, or infection.

Therefore, the need for penis enlargement surgery should always be discussed with a urologist to understand the benefits and risks in each case.

Operation to increase width

Penis enlargement surgery

Surgery to increase the width of the penis can be done in two ways:

  • Fat injection: liposuction is performed on other parts of the body, such as the sides, stomach or legs, and then some of this fat is injected into the penis to fill it and increase its volume;
  • Mesh placement: An artificial, biodegradable mesh with cells is placed under the skin and around the shaft of the penis to provide more volume.

Depending on the type of operation and in each specific case, there may be an increase in penis diameter from 1. 4 to 4 cm.

In any case, there are high risks: fat injections can cause deformation of the penis, whereas with mesh implantation, the development of infections, for example, is more common.

Length addition operation

If the goal is to increase the size of the penis, surgery is usually recommended to cut the ligament that connects the penis to the pubic bone, so that the penis can descend further and appear larger.

Although this operation can increase the size of a flaccid penis by around 2 cm, this is often not visible when the organ is in an erect position. Additionally, due to ligament cuts, many men report that the height of their penis decreases when erect, making intimate contact difficult.

How is the recovery going?

Recovery from penis enlargement surgery is relatively quick, and you can return to work within 1 week after the procedure.

In most cases, you can go home the next day after surgery, it is only recommended to rest at home until the stitches are removed and follow several recommendations, including taking pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs prescribed by the doctor, and maintaining cleanliness. Your penis is dry and clean at all times.

Sexual intercourse should only be resumed after 6 weeks, or as recommended by your doctor, and more intense exercise, such as running or going to the gym, should only be started after 3 to 6 months.

Other Penis Enlargement Options

Another existing solution for penis enlargement is to use pills or a vacuum pump, which increase the amount of blood in the genitals thereby making the penis feel bigger.

In addition, if you are overweight, the penis may be covered with fat, so the urologist may also recommend liposuction of the intimate area, which will remove excess fat and, for example, better expose the shaft of the penis.
