In July 2017, the 55-year-old decorator, from London, became one of a growing number of British men to have a surgical penis enlargement. Talk of enhancement was once the preserve of promotional spam mail for bizarre-looking pills and pumps; now, it is serious clinical business. British clinics, which have taken consultancy rooms in Harley Street and in UK cities including Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham and Leeds, report record numbers of patients calling on their services. One practice, the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery, has gone from performing a handful of penis procedures annually when it opened in 1990 to more than 250 in 2017. Between 2013 and 2017, members of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery carried out 45,604 penis enhancements worldwide. Previous numbers are unknown; the procedure was considered such a minority concern that it wasn’t included in surveys. This increase in demand seemingly caters to a growing anxiety about penis size, but it is by no means a risk-free procedure. For Alistair, dreams of a larger penis were overtaken by infections, lumps and an erection that no longer rises above a 45-degree angle. And he is not alone. In recent years, the General Medical Council has recorded stories of “wonky penises” and erectile dysfunction following surgery. In Stockholm, last summer, a 30-year-old man died after suffering a cardiac arrest following an operation to enlarge his penis.
There are several surgical treatments, most of which carry a risk of significant complications.[6] Procedures by unlicensed surgeons can lead to serious complications.[7] Risky surgical treatments include subcutaneous fat injection, division of the suspensory ligament, and the injection of dermal fillers, silicone gel, or PMMA.[8][9] The American Urological Association (AUA) and the Urology Care Foundation "consider subcutaneous fat injection for increasing penile girth to be a procedure which has not been shown to be safe or efficacious. The AUA also considers the division of the suspensory ligament of the penis for increasing penile length in adults to be a procedure which has not been shown to be safe or efficacious."[10] Dermal fillers are also not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the penis.[11]
Androgen Deprivation Therapy – Androgen deprivation therapy is used to eliminate as much testosterone as possible in the body to treat prostate cancer. This may be done with GnRH or LHRH agonists, which reduce the amount of testosterone in the body or with anti-androgens, which block the use of testosterone by cancer cells. Unfortunately, the reduction of testosterone can cause genital shrinkage [21]. While other treatments are available if you’re worried about shrinkage, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons with your medical professional when making a decision.
Before engaging in pumping, you should take some precautions. Warming up should be done before pumping. Otherwise, you might find yourself heading to a doctor instead of achieving your desired results. Also, you have to manscape down there to make pumping more effective. Pubic hair can hinder a good seal, which is very important when you create a vacuum.
Because many young men are concerned about the size of their penis and would like it larger, there are many unethical people or businesses that offer lotions or pills or other types of non-medical treatment to enlarge or lengthen the penis. None of these methods have been fully tested in clinical trials and approved for medical use – and none of them are recommended by reputable physicians. They are taking advantage of a man’s concerns about his penis size (despite the fact that most men have a normal size penis) and seeking to get his money for treatments that are worthless at best. Some can be dangerous or may even damage the penis. None of these methods or products can be recommended or should be used.
Male enhancement supplements work by increasing the amount of blood flow the genital region receives and the volume of blood that it can retain. In a flaccid state, the penis, like any other part of the body, receives a normal amount of blood flow. When an erection occurs, the penis is surged with a rich supply of blood which is then trapped in the spongy tissues of the Cavernosa and Spongiosum.
The side effects of lengthening surgeries are numerous and include infections, nerve damage, reduced sensitivity, and difficulty getting an erection. Perhaps most disturbing, scarring can leave you with a penis that's shorter than what you started with. Widening the penis is even more controversial. Side effects can be unsightly -- a lumpy, bumpy, uneven penis.
Not all operations leave happy customers – infections and scarring are both potential side-effects (“This is the same as an operation of any kind,” Viel says). Some men report a decline in angle after the suspensory ligament is cut, but according to David Ralph, a professor of urology at UCL, “By and large, patients don’t complain about that. The operation doesn’t change the erect length at all – this is only for men who have anxiety about how they look in the changing rooms. The average increase in size is 1.3cm, less than the diameter of a 1p coin. In my clinics, I show patients one of these and ask if they still think it is worth it. Less than 5% decide to, and of those who do, the satisfaction rate is just 20%.”
Agree with Mary. Most women I've dated have stated they only date men with big dicks (7and up and fat). To many, 7 inches is their minimum. Most women may not have this criterea but many modern women do. Saying penis size doesn't matter is a ridiculous PC answer. However, vaginas come in different sizes. A big dick with a small vagina is not meant to be. The Kama Sutras recommendations in this regard are far more helpful than just denying it matters. It matters... To some women... To varying degrees. Key is in finding partners who are a good mutual fit.

Penile enlargement pills and patches are devices that you see advertised on-line lots. They promise to become very convenient and discreet solutions if you need to make your penis bigger. However, you have to be conscious of research about the efficacy of those pills and patches are consistent in showing that these pills are ineffective and they are purely offered for profit. Every current brand of pill I know of may also be not FDA approved, so anybody’s researching their claims of safety and efficacy.
According to the website of one such product, the safe application of traction encourages tissue cells to divide and multiply, a process called cytokinesis. Over time and with great effort this will lead to tissue growth. The FDA considers these low-risk devices (Class 1) and so provides only general controls intended to be followed by manufacturers.
The surgical treatments, the researchers found, were dangerous and had “unacceptably high rate of complications.” But among the nonsurgical methods, at least one appeared to help grow a man’s member: the “traction method,” in which a penile extender stretched the phallus daily, resulted in average growth of 0.7 in., or 1.8 cm, of the flaccid penis in one study. In another study of the same method, men reported an average increase of 0.9 in. (2.3 cm) in length while flaccid and 0.67 in. (1.7 cm) while erect.
Occasionally, the cut ligament leaves genitals lopsided when flaccid, and pointing off to the left or right when erect, as Francis Tilley, director of London clinic Androfill, explains. “Ligaments are there for a reason,” he says. “If you start cutting at them, the stability of the penis will be reduced: the erection will be lower and less straight.” Tilley’s practice offers the operation, but its website clearly identifies it as high risk.
Pills, Exercise, and traction device effectively enlarge penis. One who is up to penis enhancement might find it hard to decide which one to use. With the revolutionary, all-in-one penis enhancement system named SizeGenetics, you need not choose one over another, because SizeGenetics mixes up traction device, exercise and pills. This combination creates one program that guarantees smashing success in your sex life. With SizeGenetics, you get all the benefits that pills, traction device, and exercise bring.
I originally thought that pills would dish out the results I desired, but in no time at all, I learned how lousy they were for enlargement purposes. Only up until I realized this is when I actually took the time to sit in front of my computer to research what else was out there. Soon after reading a dozen or so articles, I realized that everything worth buying or trying was based around some sort of penis stretching method.
“The penis extends for two to three inches inside the body in the pubococcygeus (PC) muscle, which can be strengthened in order to achieve stronger erections and orgasms. It also helps a great deal with obtaining better ejaculatory control,” says Hall. “The PC muscle, which surrounds the prostate gland, is like a valve around the genitals. Orgasm builds from the prostate, so learning to develop these muscles is highly beneficial. Doing PC muscle exercises helps to strengthen the muscle, and men can even add weight to help build it up,” says Hall.
I use a product called the bathmate x30 and intermitant jelqing, used it for about 6 months straight, I have gained girth .25 of an inch. Gained about half an inch in length. If you keep on your bathmate regimen you will see an increase in flacid size, if you stop it goes back to the slightly improved permanent size. It’s a little bit of an annoyance to draw baths on the regular but if you are commited it’s no issue and you will get gains.
One of the things I took away from dating him is how insecure men can be about their penis size. So whenever I date anyone, I always tell them the very specific details in how I love their penis. I never lie – that would be too tough to maintain long-term – but I always find something. Huge girth. Love the way it curves. The hardest I’ve ever been with. I can barely fit it in my mouth. Whatever. I don’t understand the penis-insecurity but I am going to do my best to rid this world of penis insecurities, one cock at a time.

If you’re worried about how to get a bigger penis, it’s also a good idea to learn about issues that can cause penis shrinkage and learn how to prevent them. Certain medications, surgical procedures, and medical conditions have the ability to result in shrinkage. Here’s a look at some of the potential causes of shrinkage and what you can do to prevent it.

For men with performance issues who are physically healthy, Boyle often prescribes counseling, such as marriage counseling for men with relationship issues or psychiatric help for men who are preoccupied with a problem in penile appearance. For young men with sexual performance problems and no signs of physical problems, Boyle may prescribe counseling and a low dose of Viagra as they work out issues of insecurity. "They need reassurance from a physician that everything is OK," she says.
For men trying to figure out how to get a bigger penis, innovative surgical techniques for lengthening the penis and enhancing girth have sparked interest. Male genital corrective surgery is becoming a more popular request by patients, but there’s not a lot of long-term data and patient-related satisfaction details surrounding surgical intervention as a method for penis enlargement [15]. Penile elongation surgery is an option for restoring the penis to functional size for satisfactory sexual intercourse, although it’s generally only recommended as a treatment for micropenis [16]. Currently, reputable medical organizations do not endorse surgical intervention for purely cosmetic reasons [4].
Finally, there are a few uncommon medical conditions of the penis that a man should talk about with his doctor (especially a urologist). The first is an extremely small penis, a condition called micropenis in which the penis does not develop to a normal size. Occasionally a boy will also have a penis that does not develop normally even before birth; usually these conditions are recognized shortly after the baby boy is born and given the necessary medical attention. Another medical condition occurring most commonly in middle-aged men is Peyronie’s Disease. In this problem the penis develops scar tissue that may cause it to be smaller or curve abnormally – but this is not a cause of concern about a small or short penis in young men.
The physiological goal of Big Al’s program is to expand the spongy bodies of the penis — known as the corpora cavernosa and the corpus spongiosum — while simultaneously stretching the tunica that holds those spongy bodies and spreading the suspensory ligaments that anchor the penis to the pubis. Cell walls grow and expand with each exercise session, Big Al tells me, and the compound effect over time is increased length. “One-third to one-half of the entire length of the penile body is hidden behind the pubis,” he notes. “Lengthening exercises like the Side-to-Side Stretch permanently expand these ligaments, allowing more of the inner penis to be exposed, and thereby, lengthening the measurable portion of the penis.”
Not all agree though. Pills and supplements seem sometimes to satisfy men who are looking for something that will not be permanent but are worried more about performance. “Penis pills don’t require a device or consistency and practice. I’ve seen pills work at making the penis not only harder, but also last longer. I always say that men have never seen the full potential of their penis. Until you pop some penis pills or try a cock ring or a penis pump, you will have never seen what your penis is capable of,” says Leo Debois of AdamsToyBox, a male-focused adult toy store.

However, after more than a century of generally dubious and sometimes lunatic penis enlargement attempts, there's still not much you can do. Sure, there are lots and lots of supposed options out there -- penis pills, creams, brutal stretching exercises, horrific-looking devices, and penis surgery. Almost none of it works. The few approaches that can work often have modest benefits and serious side effects. How serious? In some cases, erectile dysfunction-serious.
