What is Penis Enlargement?
Penis Enlargement is a Surgery that can be done in the Center under Light Anesthesia (One-Day Surgery) by our Team of Uro-Plastic Surgeons.
Also known as Penile Augmentation this technique consists of 2 surgical procedures to enlarge the Penis.
- one is used to increase the girth of the penis
- and the second to increase its length.
Typically patients opt for both at the same time.
Increasing the girth relies on fat cells (usually from the patient?s abdomen) being transplanted around the penis. The procedure, known as fat transfer, bulks-up the penis and can increase the girth from 1 to 3 cm.
Penis lengthening procedure are quite different from that used to increase the girth. The tissue in the penis that fills with blood is called the corpora cavernosa. This spongy tissue normally extends from the penis back into the body. In some cases half of the corpora cavernosa may be concealed inside the body. Penis lengthening relies on releasing this concealed tissue which has the effect of increasing the length of the penis. Releasing this concealed part is done by cutting the suspensory ligaments that keep the corpora cavernosa anchored within the body. This moves the penis FORWARD achieving additional penis length outside the body. This type of procedure can result in substancial size gain of up to 3 cm.
If the patient still wishes or more lengthening, a more complex intervention is feasible using skin grafts and probably prosthesis but this is seldom required unless extremely small penis incompatible with sexual intercourse.
