Penis Enlargement Male Enhancement Surgery
Penis enlargement surgery (also known as penile augmentation or penile enhancement surgery) consists of two surgical procedures to enlarge the penis, one is used to increase the girth of the penis, the second is used to increase the length of the penis. Typically, patients opt to have both penis enlargement procedures carried out at the same time.
Increasing the girth of the penis relies on fat cells (usually from the patients abdomen) being transplanted (injected) around the penis. The procedure, known as fat transfer, bulks-up the penis and can increase the girth of the penis by 1 to 3 inches. One of the possible drawbacks is that the transplanted fat cells feel soft, somewhat like female breast tissue. Additionally, increases in the girth of the penis achieved this way can often disappear as the fat cells are reabsorbed back into the body. Sometimes, the re-absorption of the transplanted fat is uneven and the penis is left looking lumpy and unsightly.
A variant of the fat transfer method called “dermal transfer” may overcome the fat re-absorption problem. Dermal transfer uses strips of skin and fat together. The skin stops the fat from being re-absorbed into the body but because this procedure requires strips of skin and fat to be grafted onto the penis the surgery is more complex and the risk of disfigurement is much greater.
Penis lengthening procedures are quite different from the procedures used to increase the girth of the penis. 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 the concealed part of the penis is done by cutting the suspensory ligaments that keep the corpora cavernosa anchored within the body. This moves the concealed part of the penis forward achieving additional penis length outside the body. This type of penis enlargement surgery can result in substantial flaccid size gains but sometimes only a small increase in the erect penis length.
The side effects of this penis lengthening surgery stem from the fact that with the suspensory ligament no longer anchored to the pubic bone, the penis is effectively “floating loose”. If the penis is flaccid this will not cause any problems but if the penis is erect then several problems may occur. Floating loose from the pubic bone, the erect penis can slip and shift around during sex. And without the suspensory ligament to hold it, erections can point downwards. Nowadays, more sophisticated surgical techniques mean that this can be minimized but the angle of erection is still likely to be reduced no matter how the surgery is carried out.
Penis enlargement surgery has advanced a long way since the early days when penile disfigurement was almost a certainty but many surgeons still refuse to offer penis enlargement procedures because of the risks associated with it. Candidates for penis enlargement surgery should seek advice from their own doctor and ideally undergo counselling before consulting with surgeons offering these procedures
Unsatisfied Penis Size
Almost all men experience anxiety about the size or appearance of their penis at some time. For most men, these feelings will pass but, for others, they can be persistent and disabling.
A man's concern about his penis can lead to avoidance of sexual relationships, and even of sporting and other activities where other men might see him naked. Such men are not only embarrassed by the apparent smallness of their penis, but frequently also feel ashamed and silly about their anxiety, too.
Problems with Judging Penis Size and the Average Penis Size
Men generally fall into two groups regarding their penis size and appearance. Some men have a short, fat, rather elastic penis when flaccid that stretches and expands very considerably during erection.
Others have a long, impressive-looking flaccid penis that barely changes in size when erect, and simply becomes more rigid. Men in the first group who see men from the second group naked in the showers incorrectly think that they have an abnormally small penis.
Both are normal, just different.
Pills and Potions for Penis Enlargement
There are loads of adverts and articles on penis enlargement - your email inbox probably suffers as a result. They talk of the amazing, 'unbelievable' results to be achieved from pills and potions, oils and lotions. The only honest word here is 'unbelievable'. Save your money. Nothing currently on the market will have the desired effect.
Vacuum Devices for Penis Enlargement
Vacuum devices are usually recommended for treatment of impotence and are advertised for penis enlargement as well because the penis does increase in size temporarily. Vacuum pumps work by placing the device over the penis. Sucking out the air from the tube creates pressure and blood is forced rapidly into the penis as happens in an erection. A ring is then applied temporarily to the base of the penis to stop the blood draining away too quickly. Enlargement will only work for 24 hours.
There can also be side effects to the vacuum treatment. Blood vessels can rupture causing swelling and pain. If you do want to try a vacuum device for erectile problems or you feel it might be a pleasant sensation you do need to be aware that some of the devices available via adverts may be poorly designed.
As the penis does not contain any muscles there are no exercises or massage techniques that will enlarge it, (except in the short term)!
