Penile enhancement - surgery risks

Penile enhancement surgery is an experimental field of cosmetic surgery. At least one method of surgery is regarded as sufficiently safe to be approved by western medical regulation bodies. However, the field is notorious for disreputable surgeons performing ineffective and dangerous procedures which often have serious side effects.

The safest method of penile enhancement is the use of a silicon implant. This implant is inserted beneath the skin of the penis. The most clear benefit is to girth due to the implant’s size, however patients have also reported increases in length as the implant stretches the penile tissue. Gains are on average between one and a half to two and half inches in length and girth, although length gains are much less commonly reported and tend to be less significant.

An older form of surgery involves cutting the ligament which attaches the penis to the pubic bone. This causes the penis to ‘hang’ further outside the body and therefore appear larger. No improvement will be seen in either length or girth when erect. Furthermore, if the ligament heals shortening can actually occur.

Both of the above methods carry the significant risks associated with any experimental surgery. Complications such as infection and tissue damage are likely to be particularly serious for the patient due to the delicate nature of the organ. Complications are far more likely to result if the surgeon is not adhering to professional standards. Many surgeons offer procedures with wildly optimistic predictions without informing patients of the very real risks the surgery represents. Furthermore, such ‘back street’ practitioners will cut corners in equipment, skill and hygiene to save costs. This can threaten not only the function of the patient’s penis but also their long term health, or even their life.
