Through the ages, men have been obsessed with their penis size (or the lack of it). And it is not difficult to understand why. For a bigger penis means better sexual prowess and sex appeal. Everyone wants to get bigger, no matter how big they are now.
So if you have this feeling that yours is just not big enough, what can you do? There are various options available to increase your penis size and one of them is phalloplasty or penis enlargement surgery.
This article discusses what phalloplasty is, the pros and the cons, and whether it is worth the risks and money for you.
1. What is Phalloplasty or penis enlargement surgery?
Phalloplasty is the process of enlarging the penis by surgery. Usually known as penis enlargement surgery, phalloplasty can set you back a cool $4,750 or more. And that’s provided there are no complications involved.
2. How is Phalloplasty done?
There are two types of surgical procedures involved and they are:
i) Girth enhancement or thickening of the penile shaft
This is done by “isolating” fats from the pubic mound, abdomen or “love handles” and injecting them underneath the skin of your penis. This will give the penis much meat and will help it look thicker. Today, penis girth enhancement tend to be more permanent with no lumps or ugly patches.
ii) Penis lengthening
This is a more complicate procedure and involves dividing the hidden ligaments suspending the penis from the underside of the pubic bone and causing the penis to protude roughly an inch and a half forward. In other words, the “visible” part of the penis is increased, making the penis look longer. However, you need to wear a penis stretcher to hold and stretch the penis for more permanent gains in length.
3. How Long Does The Operation Take?
Penis enlargement surgery or Phalloplasty procedures usually takes less than an hour to complete. It is considered an “outpatient treatment” and you can normally leave the surgery center within 2 hours.
4. How Much Does Phalloplasty Cost?
A quick survey of surgical centers that do Phalloplasty gives the following average figures:
i) Penis girth enhancement : $4,750
ii) Penis lengthening : $4,750
iii) Discounted combine package : $8,250
5. Are There Any Negative Side Effects To Phalloplasty?
Penis enlargement surgery or Phalloplasty is not the perfect solution that many men wants to believe in. There are huge risks involved and horror stories abound.
Post surgery problems such as slipping and shifting of the penis during sexual intercourse may appear. This may be due to the extended penis not firmly “anchored” to the public bone.
Furthermore, if the surgeon is not careful enough, the penis may end up pointing in an awkward position which can be difficult and painful for sexual intercourse.
While phalloplasty is a viable solution for enlarging a man’s penis, it does come with a massive price tag and huge risks of surgical failure. The damages, if any, are irreversible, so think carefully before deciding on this procedure.
Fortunately, phalloplasty is not the only option you have. There are also effective, nonsurgical alternatives in the form of penile traction devices, pills, exercise techniques and so on. These cost a lot less and are also safer without the big risks of surgery.
