Penis Surgery FAQs

What is the most common surgical technique to lengthen the penis?

Penile lengthening: the most common technique to lengthen the penis is to cut its suspensory ligament and then perform plastic surgery to provide additional skin to cover its new length.

Are Penile Enlargement & Girth Enhancement a psychological factor or more than realistic needs?

The plastic surgeon does not require patients meet with a sexual psychiatrist, however patients need to have realistic expectations and be physically and mentally healty before doing any plastic surgery. Patients with micropenis or curved penis at the lower part of the penis will be considered as the first priority because these patients have problem with penetration.

Will the functions of other parts of the male organ be disturbed after surgery?

Urination, sexual intercourse, and the angle of the penis may lower from the right angle to a horizontal angle if the surgery is not operated properly. There is no change in ED, on the contrary may slightly improve from various congestion improvements.

How long does the surgery take?

The surgery takes approximately 1 hour – 4 hours. Admission at the hospital for 1-2 days.

When can the patient return to work?

Light works or a week of rest is recommended. Patients should abstain from heavy work for 2 weeks.

How long should patients wait before having sex?

Sexual abstinence for at least 6 weeks is recommended.

What are the post surgery experiences?

The penis swells for the first 2-3 weeks. There may be some slight pain but controlled by taking pain killer medicines. The penis is covered with bandages for 1 week to control the swelling and sustaining fast recovery. The stitches at the tip of the penis are absorbable. However, for some patients, the base of the penile wound conditions is cut within 1 week. The wound would harden for approximately 1-2 months and there may be a minimal chance of having keloid.

Will the any penis enhancement be covered by insurance?

Just like any other plastic surgery cases, insurance companies do not provide coverage. However, local insurance companies would provide coverage for patients who claimed to have micropenis (penis size less than 4 inches during erection) or Peyronie’s disease.

Does penis enlargement actually work?

YES! Although this question has been asked so many times, the answer still stays the same. Increasing the length and thickness of your penis is possible, and although the size gains vary from one person to another, and from the products used, most people experience noticeable gains in months.

Most penis enlargement methods can add anywhere between 1/2″ to 2 1/2″ in length, with 1/4″ to 1″ in girth. In a recent study, an average person could receive gains of 35% from a penis extender.

Are there risks involved with penis enlargement?

As with anything, trying to enlarge you penis can incorporate risks. Surgery is most likely to cause you damage, whilst penis extenders, penis pills and manual exercises have minimal risk.

Why should I take part in penis enlargement?

It is up to your own discretion whether or not you take part in penis enlargement. If you are entirely satisfied with the size, function, and general ‘health’ of your penis, why are you reading this site? If you are looking to optimize what you already have, or you are insecure about the length and thickness of your penis, penis enlargement devices and manual exercises could help.

By using penis enlargement products and manual exercises, you will be able to produce harder erections than ever before – be a man of steel! The circulation in your penis will improve, you will be able to last longer with your partner and most importantly, your penis will grow!

Are the results of penis enhancement permanent?

This depends on the penis enlargement method used. Traction devices and surgery are known to have the most permanent results whilst pumps only last for a short period of time. Many penis enlargement users usually make their gains ‘solid’ by reducing the number of days per week they dedicate to enlarging their penis, once they have achieved their final goal. Some members believe that penis enlargement is a life time commitment.

What is the average sized penis?

An average penis size varies from country to country. A Study displays all of the average penis sizes by age, ethnic and general. The charts show a bell shaped curve which is most common for 90% of users.

What are the options for a thicker penis?

Penile girth enhancement can be performed by one of four techniques: Placement of dermal-fat grafts which are harvested from the lower abdomen or buttocks area, insertion of AlloDerm strips, insertion of liposuctioned fat, soft silicone is commonly used by Koreans. However, irritation of the silicone may cause friction seroma and the silicone may interfere with the erection.

What is Alloderm?

AlloDerm is material processed from donated human skin. The tissue goes through a multi-step process in which the top layer of the skin, the epidermis, is removed along with all cells, retaining its structural integrity. The structural components preserved in AlloDerm serve as a scaffold into which your own tissue will grow.

After the procedure, blood will flow from your tissue into the preserved vascular channels in the AlloDerm. Next, your own cells will begin to move into the AlloDerm and begin the process of new tissue growth. As healing progresses, more and more of your own cells will grow into the AlloDerm and transform it into tissue that not only resembles your own but also functions as your own.

What is a penile implant?

Penile implant surgery is an option for men who suffer from erectile dysfunction but who have not gotten results from other types of treatments. It is a surgical procedure where we implant a prosthesis directly inside the penis and scrotum to allow a man to achieve an erection.

How does a penile implant work?

A penile implant is a device that is placed surgically, either through one incision in the scrotum or through an incision in the lower abdomen, right above the penis.The device is either inflatable or non-inflatable. Typically the device is filled with salt water (saline), and the patient has a pump, which is hidden in the scrotum. By gently pressing on that pump, the salt water travels through a reservoir that is placed next to the bladder and travels into the device itself, which is in the penis. The device in the penis has two chambers, which go into the erectile chambers of the penis. When these are inflated, and the water inflates the device, then the patient achieves an erection. When they are finished, then they can deflate the device.

How does a patient know when an implant is a good option for him?

Patients with all types of erectile dysfunction, from men who may have had radical prostatectomies (or removal of their prostate), to young patients who have experienced some type of trauma, to older patients who may have been told they shouldn’t worry about it or are too old for certain treatments. We treat all stages of this disease with a broad range of options. These may range from pills and injections to vacuum devices, suppositories and surgery.

As with any medical condition, we always try to treat patients with the simplest and least invasive treatments possible, and the same goes for erectile dysfunction. So, before considering any surgical procedure, we do a comprehensive evaluation of the patient to rule out systemic problems or other diseases that can cause impotence. There is a range of treatment options, from oral medications like Viagra, to injections, vacuum devices, and suppositories. If these are found to be ineffective, a patient may consider having penile implant surgery.

One option for men who suffer from erectile dysfunction but who have not gotten results from other types of treatments is penile implant surgery. This is a surgical procedure where we implant a prosthesis directly inside the penis and scrotum to allow a man to achieve an erection.

Are there age or health limitations on who can have penile implant surgery?

We have performed the implant procedure on patients as young as 20 years old (trauma patients) and as old as 90. Patients who think they are too old or too sick to undergo penile implant surgery can get successful results in the hands of our experienced team. We have successfully performed the implant procedure on patients with complicating conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, organ transplants, etc.

What are the different types of penile implant surgery?

There are two approaches to penile implant, also known as sexual restorative surgery. One is the traditional method in which the device is placed through an incision in the scrotum. Another method is the infrapubic penile implant, in which the implant and reservoir are placed through an incision in the lower abdomen, right above the penis. In either approach, we minimize dissection in the penis and spare the patient’s natural tissues.

Why is penile implant surgery considered minimally invasive?

The operation is minimally invasive because it is done in 15-20 minutes, involves only one 3-4 cm incision, and can be done on an outpatient basis. This results in a very short recovery time and only a few days off from work. Dissection of the tissues inside of the penis is dramatically minimized from the way the procedure was done at many institutions over the past 20 years. This is especially well-suited for men who have had radical prostatectomies, where the procedure can be more complicated. The risks and potential complications have been dramatically reduced or eliminated with the simpler, more streamlined, and less invasive outpatient procedure.

What can a patient expect during penile implant surgery?

The procedure takes about 20 minutes. The patient can go home the same day or the next day, whichever is more convenient.

What is the recovery process following penile implant surgery?

Recovery usually takes about 2-3 weeks. Patients are usually able to go back to work in 2-3 days. Most patients can resume sexual activity within one month.

Is the penile implant visible or detectable after it has been implanted?

No, the device is completely internal and is hidden from view once it’s implanted. The patient inflates and deflates the prosthesis by squeezing a small pump hidden inside the scrotum.

Is there anything patients with Erection Disfunction should know about penile implant surgery?

Penile implant surgery is an important decision. I would tell patients not to be embarrassed about the issue. Come in and find out what is available and then take the time to think things over and discuss it with your partner. No one is too old or too sick to be evaluated for this procedure. Medications are affordable and for the majority of patients, the surgery is covered by insurance.
