Like injectable fillers, these platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments involve injections into your penis. First, you get a local and topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable. Then your doctor draws blood from your arm and spins it in a centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells and concentrate the platelets, which are rich in growth factors. They then inject the platelets into several different areas of your penis.
If you notice a change in the angle of your erections, see a urologist who specializes in sexual medicine. Your doctor can prescribe an intervention, such as a penile traction device or vacuum device, which can essentially stretch contracted scar tissue back to its normal length, says Walsh. They won’t do much for healthy penis tissue, which is probably as elastic as it can be already, he says.
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.
Yes, it can, but surgery is always associated with risks, including anesthesia, wound healing deficits, pain from scars, worst case even a deformed penis or permanent erectile problems. It’s effective without a doubt from our experience, but the last resort in our opinion. For men with a real micropenis (smaller than 2.75 inch) it’s often the only solution and covered by health insurance, but only about 0.5% of all men worldwide suffer from this condition. If you are just a bit below average, the risk versus reward calculation is negative for surgical penis enlargement. Especially one problem that arises from cutting the ligaments, the erection pointing slightly downwards instead of straight forward, can become a real problem according to professor Kevan Wylie from the NHS, he said “It can make sex quite uncomfortable. You’ve got to do a lot more manoeuvring with your partner. The advantage of a 2cm (0,8 inch) gain in flaccid length is far outweighed by the loss of angle of erection.”
A penis enlargement procedure may be indicated for a man who has experienced penile trauma or has a medical disorder that affects the function of the penis. In cases where penis size affects fertility or quality of life, penis enlargement may be considered under the direction of a urologist. These include surgical procedures known as penile augmentation (a.k.a. augmentation phalloplasty).
