Lose belly fat. Your penis may look smaller than it really is if it's partially obscured by skin that droops over the top. Losing belly fat is no simple task, but it can make a big difference when it comes to the perceived size of your penis. Start taking measures to lose weight and you'll likely see improvement in other areas as well. According to a report from Harvard, men with a 42-inch waist are 50 percent more likely to have erectile dysfunction (ED) than men with a 32-inch waist.
Apart from the risks, penoplasty (surgical penile lengthening and girth enhancement, often by releasing the penile suspensory ligaments, so just an optical improvement) is the most expensive way for penile enhancement. According to About Health it ranges from $4000 up to $17000. If you are interested in surgical enhancement, we recommend reading the in-depth article on Medscape about possible surgical techniques and results. There is a less risky new method, the FDA-cleared Penuma implant developed by my collegue Dr. Elist (James Elist, MD) for flacid size enlargement, but the erect size lengthening is minimal and the cost is in the low five digits, too.
Being fit and at a healthy weight has a lot to do with how a penis appears and performs (more on that soon) but it also has a lot to do with what we eat. For example, foods like onions are said to increase healthy blood flow and circulation — including to the penis! Salmon is known for this as well, and so are bananas (we’re trying not to make a pun here) and dark chocolate. Also, foods high in protein (say, like eggs or low Greek yogurt) and proper hydration can only work in your favor.
Free fat grafting (FFT) starts with the extraction of adipose (fat-storing) tissue from the thighs of thin men, lower abdomen of normal-weight men, or the pelvic area of overweight men. The tissues are centrifuged (spun at a high rate) to break the cells apart and injected into the penis with a syringe or flexible tube called a cannula. This final step helps prevent the irregular clumping of fat cells. Because 20% to 80% of the fat cells will be reabsorbed by the body in the first year, multiple procedures may be needed.
The average flaccid penis is between 3.5 and 5 inches long and 3.5 inches around, while the average erect penis is a little more than 5 inches in length and 4.5 inches in girth. Some men feel inadequate, even though their penis size is perfectly normal. Nearly 70% of men say they’re not happy with their size, and about half wish they could be larger.
Another variation of the super-concentrated thrombocyte injection is the STIM shot, another term coined by Dr. Neavin. The STIM shot combines PRP injections with the application of a penis pump to apply negative pressure and create micro injuries in the tissue. This allows PRP to spread evenly throughout the penis and target the tissue with its reparative and rejuvenating properties.
Stretching with weights. Weights or stretching exercises won't bulk up your penis -- it's not a muscle. But hanging weights off your flaccid penis may stretch it a bit, O'Leary says. The catch is that it requires a freakish degree of dedication. "You might have to wear a weight strapped to your penis eight hours a day for six months," says O'Leary. At the end of it, you could be lucky enough to gain about half an inch. Risks include tearing of the tissue, burst blood vessels, and other problems.
