How is penis enlargement surgery performed?
There are several techniques for enhancing the size of your penis. The procedure steps will vary depending on the problem you are addressing and the surgical or nonsurgical techniques you and your aesthetic plastic surgeon decide on.
What are my penis enlargement options?
Talk to your aesthetic plastic surgeon about what you would like to correct or enhance, and your surgeon will recommend the procedure or combination of procedures that are best for you.
Alternatively, losing weight may make your penis look larger and eliminate the need for penis enlargement surgery. Similarly, you could get liposuction around your pubic area and thighs to make your penis appear larger. Your surgeon may recommend you lose weight or try liposuction before considering more invasive surgery options.
Phalloplasty (Penis Lengthening Surgery)
Approximately a third of the penis lies inside the body, beneath the pubic bone. In the lengthening surgery, called phalloplasty, your surgeon performs a ligament release which allows the penis to extend further outside the body. This option typically produces the most dramatic results however, it is the highest-risk penis enlargement procedure, which is why most surgeons usually recommend this as a last resort. Below are the general steps for this procedure:
- Your surgeon makes a small incision in the pubic hair area.
- Your surgeon releases the suspensory ligament above the penis, which causes the penis to extend further outside the body.
- The surgeon then closes the incision.
- This surgical treatment increases both the flaccid length and erect length of the penis.
Scrotum Tuck Surgery
In some individuals, the scrotum is attached high up on the penile shaft. Your surgeon can partially disconnect the scrotum to produce the appearance of a longer penis. This procedure is a quick and relatively easy enhancement with minimal downtime.
Penis Widening Surgery
Fat transfer is the most common method for increasing penis circumference. Your surgeon may also use this technique to create a slight increase in the length of your penis.
- Your surgeon will use liposuction to remove fat from other areas of your body, such as your belly or inner thigh.
- The surgeon will purify the fat, place it in a syringe, and inject it into your penis through tiny incision sites around the penile shaft. Your surgeon will use a numbing agent on your penis so you will have minimal discomfort.
- You won’t experience tissue rejection since this approach does not involve foreign bodies.
- Following the procedure, your surgeon may cover your penis with a dressing that you’ll need to change at intervals.
- This type of surgery won’t negatively affect your sexual performance or your ability to urinate.
In some cases, your surgeon may recommend using allograft surgery to increase the overall width of your penis. With this method, your surgeon places a dermal wrap of an allograft material under your penis skin. Your surgeon inserts acellular dermal matrix sheets (soft tissue fillers) through the same incision as the lengthening procedure.
Non-Surgical Penis Enlargement
Your aesthetic plastic surgeon may recommend a newer, less invasive, non-surgical procedure in which they transfer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood supply into your penis. Since this approach uses your own blood supply, you won’t have problems with tissue rejection.
