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%.”
I ask for his pre-op dimensions. He doesn’t want his exact measurements reported, but they are surprising: while flaccid, he was smaller than most men; erect, his penis grew significantly. Modecai, it seems, experienced two decades of stress despite the fact that, fully extended, he was bigger than the UK average. This apparent contradiction does not surprise Angela Gregory, a psychosexual therapist based at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. “Penis enlargements can be about a lot of things,” she says. “But the amount of anxiety a man experiences rarely, in my experience, correlates with his actual size.”
The success of PRP injections led to the cosmetic industry adopting the use of PRP for various specialized cosmetic treatments, such as the Vampire Breast Lift, Vampire Facelift, Vampire Facial, and the Priapus Shot. Certain doctors offer the Priapus Shot as a method for increasing penis size and improve erectile function. The procedure involves drawing blood from the arm, using a centrifuge to separate platelets, making those platelets think the body has been injured, so they release growth factors, and then injecting this liquid into the penis with a small needle. While you can find satisfied testimonials of men who have had the Priapus shot, no actual studies have been done to back up the idea that these shots offer effective, long-term results.
“Operations are very safe,” says Viel, who founded the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery with his twin brother Maurizio. “Perhaps 95% of our patients are very happy. Where they are not, it is often to do with expectations. Some men want 10 inches when nature gave them four or five. I have to say, gently, ‘This is not possible. I am not a miracle worker.’”
Penis enlargement, or male enhancement, is any technique aimed to increase the size of a human penis. Some methods aim to increase total length, others the shaft's girth, and yet others the glans size. Techniques include pills, hormones, massage, stretching, inflation, incision, injections, and implants. While some techniques are hoaxes, others may be somewhat effective, perhaps at high risk of complications.
"Some men are confused (or rather not as educated on the matter) and they believe that the outside skin get’s longer and thicker. That’s false. However, some men have false expectations; they think using a penis pump once will cause them to have a bigger penis permanently, and that’s false. As in the gym example before, you have to keep at it, and you have to practice to see results. Yes, early on you will see results like any newbie in the gym, but if you don’t keep at it you will see those results diminish,” says Dubois.
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.
Adrian, I've been using your fat loss workouts & my weight is continually dropping to where I'm beginning to look better naked. 6 weeks ago my stomach flap below my navel, when standing, I could grab two hands full. Well it is now gone and when I got out of the shower this morning, standing straight up I looked down and I can finally see my penis (a much bigger penis!) Mike Meachem
Results from a study of over 4,000 men from the Archives of Sexual Behaviour, found that one of the keys to a happy sex life could be something as simple as self-acceptance. They used the ‘Index of Male Genital Image’ (IMGI) to study the men’s perceptions of their genital size, and perhaps unsurprisingly the men who were dissatisfied with their genital size were less likely to report being sexually active.
The popular concensus is: size doesn’t matter and many women perpetuate this myth. Truth is: size does matter. I am living proof. Stick with the exercises and the penis pump, and you’ll see results. I pump for an hour before a massage/sex session. I pump carefully and in a controlled manner so I don’t blow out veins and end up with blood blisters. Patience gets results. Sometimes it’s a struggle to get my puffed up foreskin back over my glans, but once done, it’s fine.
Obviously my gf broke up the week after I had my issue. I don’t blame her for anything, it was my own insecurities that led me to my decision. I’m a young guy who didn’t know how to deal with the situation and I ended up doing something stupid. I’ve been majorly abstinent over the course of these four months or so. I didn’t touch anything down there until about two weeks ago. It’s been a challenge but I’m putting my health first.
A past article we wrote on this blog was about how to have sex if his manhood is too big. In that article, we stressed that size isn’t all that important (when a guy’s penis is big, it’s the positions that matter, not the penis size). However, what we are doing today is presenting clear information about some of the most commonly talked-about size enhancing techniques out there, starting with the penis pump.
Amr Raheem is an andrology specialist (meaning his focus is on medicine relating to men) at University College London Hospitals, as well as a surgeon at International Andrology, a private clinic in the capital. Over the past 15 years, he has carried out more than 250 enlargements. “There is no typical patient,” Raheem says. “All professions, all ethnicities, married, single, gay, straight, rich, poor. It’s across the board. And all ages. I’ve worked on men in their 60s – I don’t know if they go out and use it afterwards. Early 20s, I won’t do. These are still boys. They must get to know it before they change it.”
Jelqing can be an exercise that’s designed primarily to enhance the girth as well as the time your penis. It doesn’t require take any substances or undergo any surgery. Everything you need to be able to apply these techniques are your hands. The best of this concerning this method is that the gains you create are permanent. They won’t vanish once you stop doing the exercises.
I found that passionate professionalism a bit unnerving to be honest, but then again, I’ve never had weekly strategy sessions about my dick with a stranger. Like, how do you respond to a statement like this before lunch: “Be very careful not to grip the glans during your exercises, Brian. If you need to use some talcum powder to enhance your grip, that would be fine. Remember to update your log.”
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.
Herbal remedies, Kegels (pelvic floor exercises — learn more here), and exercises have all been mentioned as potential ways to make your penis bigger. However, we’ve searched and searched for medical evidence that these techniques will work to grow your penis, but there’s simply zero, zilch, nada, no evidence. You may find lots of unverified anecdotes, which come from a sample size of one, but they simply cannot be trusted. After all, no one on the internet knows you’re a dog (or liar). We recommend that you avoid these techniques.
