What is Penis Enlargement?
Penis length surgery (penile elongation)
The male penis consists of a visible part and a part hidden within the body. During a penis enlargement surgery, the penis suspensory ligaments are severed in an operative procedure. This allows to move a part of the “hidden” penis downwards and outside the body. So the visible section of the penis increases and is leading to a visual length gain.
In addition to the cutting of the penis ligaments, further optical enlargement of the penis can also be achieved by a reduction of the fatty tissue in the pubic area. If the visible part of the penis is surrounded by a fat depot, liposuction can make the full length visible again in some cases a fat pad reduction surgery might be necessary (pubic lift).
In the erect state, the length of the penis is largely determined by the erectile tissue, which means that the length of the erect penis can only be minimally influenced by surgery.
Penis girth surgery (penile girth enhancement)
Penile girth enlargement surgery aims to increase the girth of the penis by injecting fat cells or filler into the penis.
The autologous fat or hyaluronic acid dermal filler is injected under the penile skin along the penis shaft to increase the circumference of the penis.
In terms of girth gain, an increase of 30 – 40% can be expected.
Reasons for getting Penis Enlargement:
Many men are dissatisfied with the appearance of their penis.
The reasons beyond the desire for a larger penis are manifold:
- Micropenis: Very few men suffer from a micropenis condition (affects around 0.6% of all men).
- Shame: Many men avoid public showers or saunas and feel insecure towards their sexual partner.
- Confidence issues: Many men simply do not feel comfortable in their own skin.
- Psychosexual effects: Unease and insecurity can have serious psychosexual implications, making it difficult for men to have intimate relationships and burden everyday life.
