Penis enlargement Surgery Options
In contrast to our minimally invasive injection technique, other methods of penis enlargement either don’t work (ie. p-shots, pills, pumps) or require major surgery with or without implants. Below are some of the common surgeries.
Penile suspensory ligament release
Performed by a urologist, this is a major surgery that permanently transects the penile suspensory ligament thereby making the penis hang lower. Mostly this will effect flaccid length. It has a relatively high rate of dissatisfaction and requires general anesthesia, hospital or surgical center admission and is quite costly. It is also non reversible. Often times the penis will revert back to its normal size after the ligament reattaches itself thereby making the surgery pointless. Furthermore, it only realistically gives an inch in length and will have no effect on girth. We see many patients who have previously had a ligamentolysis and are still exploring other options. Many of them are then happy with filler injections.
Implants (ie. Penuma implant)
As with any implant/foreign body inserted surgically into the body, there is a chance of infection (requiring surgical removal, antibiotics, etc), poor healing, scarring, prolonged hospital stay, etc. This is an expensive option and sometimes does not look natural. Also the maximum gain will realistically be under 2 inches in length.
Pubic Fat Pad Liposuction
Although technically not a penis enlargement surgery, for many people who are overweight this is the most effective way to make the penis “appear” larger. Those who are overweight with large pubic fat pads can have “buried penis syndrome” where the penis becomes retracted into the pubic fat and therefore appears small. Fortunately however, this surgery does work and is effective at making the penis appear larger. Our sister practice, Norcal Liposculpture, run by Dr. Friedlander does perform this procedure.
