For most men around the world, penile length is a major source of concern in terms of physical appeal. There are a number of products and techniques in the market today that claim to help increase the size of the penis.
However, penile surgery still remains the only permanent solution for a man who wants to increase his penile dimensions. The surgical procedure can bring about visual changes in the penis and lead to penile enlargement by a few centimeters or more than an inch.
Phalloplasty Surgery is a penile enhancement surgery that augments the girth, length, and possibly the glands of the penis. With this surgery, the length and circumference can be increased by one to two and a half inches and up to fifty percent thicker, respectively (except the head).
The surgeon cuts and detaches the suspensory ligaments that hold the penis in its usual position to increase the length. This allows the penis to descend, which allows access to the area hidden beneath the skin wall.
The penile implant surgeon then extends the penile length in proportion to the length of the internal portion. Further, penile weight hanging and certain stretching devices (Penile traction devices, or penis extenders) can be used for the next few months to permanently increase size as a successful outcome. The total increase in the length may vary depending on the individual’s anatomy and it cannot be predicted prior to the surgery.
Another surgical technique used is known as a dermal graft/implant, also called a dermofat graft. This method can increase penile girth as well as length. The procedure involves the use of the patient’s own fat cells/tissues, taken from other parts of the body, and then transplanted into the penis.
This results in an increased circumference of the penis (50% or more) and the penile shaft is filled with fat cells to maintain a proper proportion.
