Penis enlargement surgery refers to the invasive procedure of increasing either – or both, in many cases – the penile length or the penile girth.

Many surgeons in the United States are actually offering the procedure but it must be emphasized that the technologies used are not yet as proven as, say, breast enlargement techniques so complications are still aplenty.

Determining Suitable Patients

Contrary to popular notion, penile surgery has been around for decades. It was first offered in 1971 for men with severe penile shortening caused by:

    • Congenital abnormalities like micropenis where the adult penis size measures less than 7 centimeters but are otherwise normal in physiology (i.e., anatomy).
    • Surgical complications brought by procedures intended to address penile cancer or Peyronie’s disease
    • Physical trauma brought by accidental or deliberate amputation

It was not until the late 1980s, however, when penile enlargement surgery was performed for cosmetic reasons with the techniques first described in detail in 1990.

But the techniques used today are still worrisome despite the advances in modern medical science and technology considering the types, severity and frequency of post-surgery complications, not to mention the often unsuccessful results.

Nowadays, men who have the deep pockets and the deep motivation to address their perceived shortcomings in the penile aspect are more likely to undergo the surgery, never mind the risks. But this should not be, as we will explain later!

 

Lengthening The Penis

The most popular penile enhancement surgery is penile lengthening for good reasons – men want longer penises more than they want larger penises, for example. The surgery involves cutting the penis’ suspensory ligament and then attaching new skin to cover its new length.

The results are not as impressive as most clinics report. The few reliable reports on the subject report negligible increases in flaccid length – just 0.5 centimeters in length for suspensory alignment and 1.6 centimeters for skin advancement.

But the disappointments do not stop here. First, the erect penis basically has the same size between pre- and post-surgery, which is big disappointment in itself. Second, the erect penis now points downward!

Why?

Because the suspensory ligament, which aids in keeping the penis pointing upwards during an erection, has now been divided and, thus, the support has been removed.

 

Increasing The Thickness

The surgery involved in increasing the girth of the penis can be performed on its own or as part of the penile lengthening procedure.

Two techniques are used, namely:

    • Injection of fat gathered from either the thighs or the abdomen into the skin of the penile shaft
    • Placement of skin grafts and fat harvested from the buttocks or the groin into the penile shaft

Don’t expect better results here either. Up to 90% of the fat grafts can disappear within a year, not to mention that the post-surgery complications can lead to a smaller, if not deformed, penis in the long run.

 

Suffering From Complications

And speaking of complications, most patients not only suffer from disappointing results but also from moderate to severe complications including:

    • The risks for infections and bleeding are high
    • The penis appears to arise from the scrotum instead of the abdominal wall (scrotalization)
    • The fat is reabsorbed into the body resulting in loss of girth
    • The penis has a deformed appearance because of nodule formation and irregular fatty lumps

The bottom line: You should not touch penile enlargement surgery with a ten-foot pole!

Instead, you should turn to safe, natural and effective methods like penile enhancement pills and manual penile exercises as well as counseling from a sexual therapist, if necessary. You will soon observe significant penile enlargement.

The combination of the male enhancement supplements and manual penile exercises can be considered as a one-two effective punch against a relatively smaller penis in comparison with the average penis of most men.

Both act on penis enlargements by increasing blood circulation to the genital organ while also improving on its control (i.e., erection and ejaculation).

Male enhancement products are all marketed as the best products for increasing the length and girth of the penis as well as in prolonging its erection periods.

Consumers particularly males can choose from several products including pills, patches and pumps as well as extenders and exercises with each product using different techniques for penile enlargement.

But a few penile enhancement products are better than the rest. Let’s take a look at these products and see which ones merit your trial and which ones are better left off as scams.

 

Pills

pills

Penis enlargement pills are obviously manufactured with ingredients that promote larger and longer penises in men. The most common ingredients include plant extracts from the likes of:

    • horny goat weed
    • saw palmetto
    • ginseng
    • nutrients like B-complex
    • folate and zinc
    • and special proprietary mixtures

These ingredients complement each other in the achievement of two main goals:

    • Increase blood circulation to the penis
    • Improve on the health of penis in particular and the body in general

Keep in mind that, during erection, the penis becomes engorged with blood such that the more blood circulation to the organ, the greater the erection in terms of length, girth and duration.

Since the penis depends on the body’s overall blood circulation to pump blood through its blood vessels, it makes sense to promote good health in the former, too.

Penile enlargement pills are arguably the most popular products in its category for several reasons:

    • For one thing, these contain safe, effective and natural ingredients that scientists and consumers have proven beneficial in increasing penile length and girth.
    • For another thing, these can be taken as nutritional supplements – no piece of equipment to wrestle with, for example.

Exercises

exercisePenile enlargement exercises refer to the variety of manual manipulation techniques applied on the penis with the goal of lengthening and widening its size. The most common exercises are:

Stretching and jelqing exercises are designed to stretch the penile tissues and to stimulate blood circulation to the penis. The principle can be explained as: In the process of stretching the penis, microscopic tears form on the cellular level, which the body will then repair by generating new penile cells to bridge the gap.

The massaging motions also encourage more blood to flow to the penile blood vessels. In time, the blood vessels increase in size, thus, enabling it to accommodate a greater amount of blood flow during

 

Extenders

penis-extender

Penis extenders are actually traction devices designed to stretch the penis via mechanical means. Basically, the penis will be placed into the traction device and screws will be used to secure the organ into place. If you would like to know more about how do penis extenders work, check out this post by Dario McNut

As the penis lengthens with regular use, the screws are adjusted little by little until the desired penis length is achieved.

Well, at least, that’s how it’s supposed to work in theory but real life is another story. For one thing, penis extenders must be worn for 6-8 hours in a day – or the time you spend sleeping at night – for several months before the supposed enlargement becomes visible – or perhaps not.

For another thing, these traction devices can result in injuries like scar tissues on the penis from prolonged use.

 

Pumps

pumps

Penis pumps are essentially vacuum devices. A typical penis pump, for example, is a cylinder-shaped device fitted over the penis wherein a pump then creates a partial vacuum around the organ; either a manual or motorized pump is used.

As the vacuum around the penis increases, the blood pressure level in the penile blood vessels also increases. The intended result: Larger and longer erections.

But like extenders, the use of pumps has its fair share of risks. These vacuum devices can form blisters and burst blood vessels on the penis, for example, which no man wants to experience for himself.

 

Patches

patchesonly

Penis patches are similar to nicotine patches. These are designed to deliver active ingredients to the circulatory system via the skin, said ingredients of which are supposed to improve blood circulation and increase penis size.

But there is little evidence that these patches work. The ingredients, for example, may not even pass through the skin’s multiple barriers before being diluted.

 

Conclusion

Which of these penis enlargement methods are the best? We have to say that the combination of the supplements and the manual exercises is the most effective method in lengthening and widening penile size.

Before going around checking out the penis size of other men in the locker room with a measuring tape with the goal of discovering the average size of the male appendage, stop and think about it.

Scientists have already measured the penis of men around the globe so there’s no need to go to such great lengths.

Measuring

 

Under And Over Estimation

Keep in mind, too, that measuring penis size is not as simple as taking a measuring tape to measure the length, width and girth of a flaccid and erect penis. Scientists usually measure penis size at different times because it will be affected by arousal level, frequency of social activity, and time of day including room temperature.

In most studies, men tend to report larger and longer flaccid and erect penis size on average based on self-measurements in comparison with scientific measurements for many reasons.

The bottom line: You may be underestimating or overestimating your penis size in relation to the penis size of other men, which is a common occurrence in males.

 

No Implications On Lengths

Unlike breasts in women, the size of the penis cannot be implied from either its flaccid or erect length. Flaccid penis length, for example, is a poor starting point for erect penis length as an apparently small penis at its flaccid state can grow in size to more than average when erect.

Think of it this way: Some smaller penises at their flaccid state can grow much longer while some larger penises at their flaccid state can grow comparatively less.

Again, several physical and physiological factors will affect the flaccid and erect length of the penis in a single man at different times of the day and at different phases of his life.

These factors include your age, physical condition (i.e., certain disorders like hypertension and erectile dysfunction will adversely affect the capability to achieve and maintain erections), and arousal level as well as environmental factors.

For example, you may have observed that your erection appears to be smaller in length and girth in a cold room or when you are nervous. Don’t worry – this is an involuntary reaction known as shrinkage, which is the result of the cremaster muscle’s action.

But there are men whose penis size fall well below the average size – men with micropenises who comprise 0.6% of the male population.

The condition is defined as an adult penis with an erect length less than 7 centimeters but otherwise normally formed (i.e., no physical and physiological defects including underlying diseases).

 

Measuring Up

So, how do you measure up? Keep in mind first that every man’s penis is unique in its own way and that it should not be the be-all and end-all of your existence, much less your sexual adequacy.

Men’s penises can be long and thin, wide and short, and long and large in the same way that women’s breasts come in all shapes and sizes. Yours may, in fact, fall within the average man’s penis size.

    • Get into a room with warm temperature like your bathroom. Be sure to measure as soon as you undress.
    • Measure your penis with a measuring tape at both its flaccid and erect state.
    • Compare your penis size to the average size of the penis around the world. (And stop fretting while you are at it)

 

Here Are The Average Sizes Of The Male Penis:

    • Erect length from shaft to base 5.8 inches
    • Erect girth around the base of the penis 5 inches around, which translates to 1.6 inches in diameter
    • Erect angle 106.8 degrees (Stand with your back against the wall to estimate your angle. 180 degrees, it points at your chin; 90 degrees, it points directly ahead; zero degree, it points at your feet)
    • Flaccid length is 3.43 inches

If you are a relatively healthy male adult with a healthy sex life, you should measure up, perhaps even exceed, to the average penis size from around the world. If you want to enjoy a larger and longer penis, there are always the penis enhancement pills and manual exercises.
