Penis enlargements

The most talked-about procedure in genital surgery for men is penis enlargements. The length of the penis can vary from a few centimetres up to 15 centimetres while at rest. The reason why most patients want a penis enlargement is not that they feel the penis is too small when erect, but that is too short while at rest.

During the consultation the surgeon discusses any urological and sexual problems which should be investigated by a urologist or a gynaecologist. The length and size of the penis are assessed, also its mobility and suitability for an enlargement.

The extension of the penis can be anything from a few centimetres up to 25-30% of its length while at rest. In certain cases an extension of 4-6 cm is possible. How long the extension will be is not clearly visible until the time of surgery.

The operation is done under general anaesthetic. In order to extend the penis, the fixtures which keep some of the penis inside the body are loosened, so that part of the penis which was inside the body is ejected and ends up on the outside. Then, the erectile tissue is fastened to its new position. The cut is stitched together in such a way that the skin is pushed forward and helps extend the penis at its base.

Erection ability is not influenced by the procedure. As long as no complications ensue, the sensitivity of the skin and the head of the penis is not altered.
