Male Enhancement Surgery Not That Effective

male enhancement surgery, also known as phalloplasty or penile augmentation, is a medical procedure aimed at lengthening and/or widening the penis. While many consider it as the most effective male enhancement method, the truth is, male enhancement surgery does not really provide that big a difference.

A 2005 study published in European Urology found that the average increase after male enhancement surgery was only 0.06 inches in length and 0.09 inches in circumference after lengthening and widening procedures, respectively.

Meanwhile, a 2008 study published in the Indian Journal of Urology suggested that male enhancement surgery suffers from a “serious lack of standardization that has led to a wide variety of poorly documented surgical techniques with unconvincing results.”

According to the Indian researchers, men who complain of having a small penis actually have normal sizes. Some are simply misinformed while others suffer from penile dysmorphophobia, a sub-type of body dysmorphic disorder which is characterized by worrying too much about an imaginary or minor defect in a facial feature or localized part of the body.

The authors suggest that only men with a flaccid size of less than 4 cm (1.6 inches) or an erect size of less than 7.5 cm (3 inches) should consider lengthening male enhancement surgery.

No Actual Increase in Length

Lengthening procedures usually involve cutting off the suspensory ligament, which anchors the penis to the pubis. When the ligament is severed, the penis slumps forward. Lengthening male enhancement surgery doesn’t really add inches to your penis; it merely exposes more of its hidden parts to make your tool appear bigger. Hence, the researchers say that only a “pseudo-longer” penis is created.

Claims of extraordinary length increase cannot be taken seriously due to the lack of any measurements of post-augmentation erect size. Many men who have undergone the procedure also deny noticing any changes in the size of their erect penises.

Male enhancement surgery is associated with a number of side effects, including:

  • “scrotalization,” where the penis is covered by scrotal corrugated skin rather than by its natural smooth skin
  • “dog-ears” or skin sloughing
  • hypertrophic and/or wide scars
  • proximal penile hump
  • penile lumps
  • shaft deformities

The International Society of Sexual Medicine does not recommend male enhancement surgery due to the lack of significant results and the frequent complications. But if you’re looking for ways to achieve male enhancement, there are many natural methods available that won’t burn a hole in your pocket and won’t give you grief due to unpleasant side effects.
