A Comprehensive Guide to Penile Enhancement Surgery

Although many over-the-counter products claim to enlarge the penis, penile enhancement surgery is the only treatment for increasing penis size that is guaranteed to work. However, there’s more to this surgery that men need to know. Below, we’re sharing a comprehensive guide to penile enhancement surgery so you can decide if these treatments are right for you.

Length vs. Girth

The first thing to understand about penile enhancement surgery is that there are two components to the size of the penis: length and girth. Before deciding to pursue penile enhancement, men should understand which of these qualities they want to focus on. Men who want to achieve a longer penis should consider penile lengthening surgery. On the other hand, men who want to achieve a thicker penis should consider penile girth enhancement. It is also possible to receive both treatments at once, simultaneously increasing both length and girth. Patient must be circumcised prior to the girth enhancement procedure.

Penile Lengthening

Penile lengthening surgery is a simple technique for producing a longer penis. Surprisingly, up to ⅓ of the penis is hidden inside of the body, held in place by ligaments. During penile lengthening surgery, a small incision is made at the base of the penis. Through this incision, the ligaments are released, which allows the penis to extend much farther from the body. As a result, patients add an average of one inch to the flaccid penis, which can equal even more than an inch in added length to a fully erect penis.

Penile Girth Enhancement

Penile girth enhancement is the technique used for creating a thicker penis. This is performed using your own fat. With this treatment, fat is taken from another area of the body and transplanted to the penis. This involves incisions at the base of the penis and on the neck of the penis. Penile girth enhancement with the fat grafting strategy can increase the thickness of the penis by 20% or more.

Penile Enhancement Surgery Scars

In both penile enhancement surgery procedures, incisions are made on or near the penis. Fortunately, these incisions and the resulting scars will be well hidden by the natural anatomy. Scars at the base of the penis will blend in with pubic hair, making them virtually unnoticeable. Scars on the neck of the penis for penile girth enhancement are relatively small, and should blend in with the contours of the penis.

Sexual Activity After Penile Enhancement Surgery

One of the most important questions men have about penile enhancement surgery is when they’ll be able to resume sexual activities. Fortunately, penile enhancement surgery at The Body Sculpting Center has very little risk of impacting your sexual functions. After surgery, we recommend that patients wait approximately 6 weeks before resuming any sexual activities. After this point, you should be able to resume all usual activities and enjoy the benefits of your penile enhancement procedure.

Penile Enhancement Results

The results from penile enhancement surgery are permanent. You may notice some small changes in the penis during the recovery period, but your final results will become visible after any side effects fade. As long as you follow your recovery guidelines and use any postoperative devices as advised, you can enjoy your results for many years to come.
