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.
Brandon Bartling, store manager of The Pleasure Chest, an erotic store located in New York City's West Village, understands this as well. His store carries any number of products that cater to this manly desire, everything from dietary supplements to a “penis extender, which is a sleeve that you literally wear over your penis to increase length and girth. Kind of like a thick, firm condom in a phallus shape,” he told Medical Daily in an email. He added his customers tell him that “the Blue Wolf pills work the best to help boost one’s ability to obtain firmer, longer lasting erections, while others swear by the Bathmates line of Hydromax and Hercules pumps.”
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.
Morganstern Medical’s most popular male enlargement operation is a cutting-edge proprietary approach – providing maximum available increase with both length and width. Our success rate is 100%. The primary bulking agent utilized to create your enlargement is derived from your own fatty – which our urologist extracts during the procedure. Our unique approach overcomes historical challenges associated with implanting fatty tissue – clumping and reabsorption – through administration of our patented Tissue Restructure Technology. The equally outstanding aspect is this natural implant results in a penis that’s both longer and thicker, permanently. This enlargement procedure is handled with utmost discretion and only takes an hour to perform. Most patients return to work in 2-3 days. This means the surgery could be performed on a Friday with the patient returning to work on Monday. Sexual activity may be resumed within 2 weeks. Recovery is days not weeks – there’s no need for any embarrassing excuses to “hide” the fact your penile enlargement surgery just occurred.
“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.’”
Overall, most studies seem to conclude that women are not overly concerned about penis size. In fact, some studies have reported that 84% of women are very satisfied with the size of their partner’s penis size . In another questionnaire on penis size, 55% of women responded that the length of the penis was unimportant and 22% responded that penis length was totally unimportant. Their opinions about penis girth followed the same trend, although length was found to be less important to women than girth .
“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.
Penis extenders and traction devices are other options often advertised to make your penis bigger, and they are designed to stretch the penis by exerting traction on it. One small study done on 23 men saw a small increase in both flaccid penile length and stretched penile length after using a penile extender . Another small study on 15 patients saw more significant gains in length after six months of using penile extenders, along with improvements in erectile function . It’s important to note that both of these studies are very small, and while they look promising, further studies on penis extension and penis stretching are needed.
