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.
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.
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.
Definitely yes, if you have a big or small penis is mostly defined by your genes. Sons of men with a large penis often have a large penis. Sons of men with a small penis often have a smaller penis. There are certainly exceptions, but in general genes are very dominant when it comes to erect penis size. From my own experience and research, genetics are the most dominant factor in size, environmental factors or lifestyle only have very limited to no effects.
Even those penile extenders and stretchers that claim to work over time would actually just be stretching your flaccid length, and that has absolutely no correlation to how big you get when hard, says Fisch. So don’t waste your money on a product or service that swears it can give you five more inches. “There’s no actual scientific study that they rely on."
Some men are born with what’s called a micropenis, defined by the American Urological Association as a stretched penile length of 7.5 centimeters or less. Micropenis is a condition with varying degrees of severity and may include a hormonal imbalance. Having a micropenis does not necessarily make you a good candidate for any or all penis enlargement surgeries.
A fairly common way for surgeons to add volume in such areas of the body as the face and butt, fat grafting is also an option for the penis. Dr. Tim Neavin, a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, California, says that some surgeons have been doing penile fat transfer (also called composite augmentation phalloplasty) for decades. In this technique, a surgeon takes fat from the belly or inner thighs and injects it into the penis to increase girth.
An extender is designed to provide gentle and painless penis traction. The device fastens around the base of the penis and around the corona glans (head), offering a fully adjustable traction apparatus. When you gradually increase the longitudinal force on the shaft of the penis, the body’s natural reaction to this force is multiplication of tissue cells and gradual expansion of the penile tissue. In other words, the penis gradually adds tissue for a larger and longer penis. But be careful with these devises, some of them can traumatize your penis.
Ligament release will immediately make you look about one-half to one inch longer, but it can also change the angle of your erections so the penis doesn’t rise, but elongates while pointing straight down. Between that and the risk of erectile dysfunction, it’s no surprise that many men find this option unappealing. If this is not a compromise you want to make, it’s wise to avoid this procedure.
But, before you get excited, there are some things to consider first. To begin with, this procedure only works on circumcised men, so if you aren't cut, you'll need to undergo a circumcision beforehand. Next, consider the cost: a $1,500 down payment is standard, with the actual procedure often reaching $15,000 in pricing, depending on how reputable and experienced your surgeon is. Finally, it's going to be painful (even with anesthetic) and will involve a lengthy recovery time, during which you cannot masturbate, have sex, or even get aroused. If you still think this is the solution for you, proceed by first consulting your doctor.
• Forget surgery. The full lengthening and girth enhancement, is expensive (around $15,000) and problematic. Lengthening surgery cuts the ligament that makes an erection stand up. This adds an inch or so, but erections no longer salute. They just hang between your legs and must be manually directed into erotic openings. Girth enhancement takes fat from the buttocks and injects it under the penis skin. Sounds good, but quite often, the result is a lumpy, deformed-looking penis. Not to mention if overtime it could cause problems.
V-Y plasty is a surgical technique in which the suspensory ligament that anchors the penis to the pelvic bone is severed, releasing the shaft and allowing it to extend forward. The procedure is so named because it involves a triangular incision, the edges of which are pulled together and sutured in a "Y" shape. While effective in elongating the penis, it also makes the penis less stable when erect.
