Penis enlargement surgery is still a taboo subject for men, but it is an extremely common procedure. The goal of this surgery is to enhance either length or width or both, but not to obtain a spectacular girth or length. It enables patients to get rid of psychological and physical complexes but it is very important to have realistic expectations. Penis lipofilling and penis length surgery (penile suspensory ligament division) are 2 methods with natural outcomes, unnoticeable by sexual partners.
This information sheet is issued by Dr. Vincent Nguyen, board-certified plastic surgeon in Paris, familiar with the treatment of penis enlargement.
It provides all the information about the surgery, scars, recovery, before and after comparison photographs, Social Security coverage and the costs of penoplasty.
What is penile enhancement in girth or length surgery?
Esthetic penoplasty or phalloplasty is a surgery which increases the length or girth of the penis, flaccid or erect.
Why undergo penoplasty?
The size of their penis is a major concern for many men, and those with concerns about the size of their penis may feel inadequate and insecure.
Even if most penises are of average size, there are normal differences in length and girth, erect or flaccid.
What are the indications for penoplasty?
Penoplasty is for men whose penis is within the average size but who are greatly affected, both physically and psychologically, by its somewhat modest appearance.
What’s the goal of penoplasty?
Penis widening is a procedure that aims at increasing the girth of the penis in the flaccid or erect state. It is the most common procedure.
Penis lengthening is carried out to increase the length of the penis in flaccid state. It has no positive impact on sexual intercourse. It is often performed on patients suffering from the “locker room syndrome”.
May penis widening and lengthening procedures be combined?
Yes, the procedures may be combined or may be performed separately.
BEFORE PENOPLASTY PROCEDURE
PENOPLASTY: THE PROCEDURE
Penis enlargement with lipofilling:
Is the result permanent?
Concerning length enhancement, the result is permanent.
Concerning penis lipofilling, the result is permanent but depends on weight variations. Penis will lose fat in case of weight loss and will be enhanced in case of weight gain.
May patients undergo a second penis lipofilling?
Yes, it may be done to increase the girth of the penis, but it must be done with moderation.
As fat graft is unpredictable, it is sometimes necessary to perform a second lipofilling procedure.
May penoplasty be combined with other procedures?
Yes, penoplasty may be combined with glans enlargement, circumcision, frenuloplasty or preputioplasty.
What are the procedures to enhance penis in length and girth?
Lipofilling, also called lipomodelling, uses autologous fat injections to increase the girth of the penis. The penis is widened with fat.
Lipofilling is a procedure that has been carried out in many plastic surgery procedures for years. It consists in a graft of adipose cells: fat is removed from the patient’s body by liposuction and reinjected in the penis after being purified.
Due to new injection techniques, the fat is evenly distributed in the penis.
It results in the enlargement of the size of the penis in both flaccid and erect states.
The result is reliable and permanent.
Patient’s weight should be stable to avoid variation in adipose cells. Glans is not altered.
An incision will be made to cut the penile suspensory ligament that connects the penis to the pelvic bones. It allows the shaft to be brought forward and become more visible. It is lengthened by 3 to 6 centimeters, in flaccid state only.
Does penoplasty leave visible scars?
In lengthening penoplasty, a small incision is performed in the subra-pubic area where it will be covered by pubic hair and will therefore be invisible to your partner.
In widening penoplasty with lipofilling, as micro incisions are made to insert the cannula (to harvest and inject fat), the marks will become invisible.
What are the benefits of penoplasty?
The advantage of penis enlargement with lipofilling is that the penis looks absolutely natural. The procedure is undetectable. You may keep it from your partner.
What are the alternatives to penoplasty?
Hyaluronic acid penile injections can enhance the girth of penis.
The advantage of this procedure is that it is performed at the private practice and the patient can choose the size during the procedure. But the result is not permanent and it has to be maintained with regular injections, depending on the filler, after 8 months to 1 year.
