Penis enlargement operations and stages of their implementation

Penis enlargement surgeries are gaining popularity lately. According to world statistics, 80-85% of the strong half of humanity has some problems associated with a small penis size.

To take such a risky step, a man must know in advance everything about all the advantages and disadvantages of the methods of correction of the genital organ and be patient before the operation.

Indications for penis enlargement operations

The problem is psychological in nature and the doctor will first of all try to dissuade a man from this type of intervention in any way.

The indications are divided into 3 groups:

Indications for surgery What diseases are carried out
Doctor micropenis, hypospadias (abnormal development of the penis), consequences of trauma, congenital malformation of the urethra, thickening of organ tissues, curvature of the penis due to fibrotic changes (Peyronie's disease)
Functional membranous penis, large amount of subcutaneous fat, hidden penis, buried penis
Aesthetic penis dysmorphic disorder (dissatisfaction with the size, shape, appearance of the penis).


Reasons why the operation is contraindicated:

  • inflammatory diseases of the genitourinary system;
  • age under 18;
  • poor blood clotting;
  • the presence of diseases identified after the survey;
  • diabetes;
  • Sexually transmitted diseases;
  • visible open wounds on the genitals;
  • tumor neoplasms;
  • mental disorders.

Penis enlargement correction methods

Before the operation, it is necessary for the surgeon to study the structural features of the organ and, if all indicators are normal, proceed to further manipulations. In the evening, the day before the operation, a cleansing enema is performed. In the morning, before the upcoming correction, you should stop eating and drinking.

The increment operations are divided into 2 directions:

  • surgery to increase the length of the penis;
  • measures to increase the volume of the penis.

Increase the length of the penis

After operations by any of the methods, it is necessary to refrain from sexual intercourse, physical activity, go to the sauna, stop drinking alcohol and smoking. One of the corrections for penis enlargement is ligamentotomy. The purpose of this operation is to cut the ligament that anchors the inside of the penis to the pelvic bones. Ligamentotomy is necessary to improve the results of organ enlargement after wearing an extensor, a device that fixes the penis in a certain position and distributes it in length.

Ligamentotomy is an auxiliary manipulation, without further use of the extensor it loses its meaning.

Operational access can be:

  • through the scrotum;
  • pubis.

The surgeon makes an incision in the scrotum or pubis, depending on the operative access. Then the ligament is incised and the penis is extracted, giving it the desired length, and fixed in the correct position. There is an improved surgical method that uses the patient's fatty tissue. The free space under the ligament is filled with fat, and the blood supply to the postoperative wound area is improved. This leads to faster patient healing and recovery.

After the operation, it is mandatory to use an extender. The use of the device should be started from 2 hours a day, gradually increasing the usage time to 6 hours, within 3-6 months.

Particular attention should be paid to the use of underwear while using the extender. Briefs and pants must be loose fitting. Sexual rest is required during the first week after surgery.

Volume increase

The challenge in penis enlargement surgery is to create an additional layer between the skin and the corpora cavernosa. Depending on the implanted material, the following operations are distinguished:

  • lipofilling - the introduction of the patient's fat under the skin of the penis;
  • microsurgical muscle transplant - transplantation of the patient's tissue into the subcutaneous space of the penis;
  • phalloprosthetics - the use of special prostheses to restore the erectile function of the organ.


In such an operation, fatty tissue is pumped and treated with special substances, then injected into the subcutaneous area of the penis. In the process, if there is no rejection of fat cells or other inflammatory changes, the new tissue becomes part of the penis. After the operation, the volume of the organ will increase by 2 cm. For a month after discharge, it is recommended to exclude sexual intercourse.

Microsurgical muscle transplant

Microsurgical muscle transplantation is an expensive innovation in penis enlargement. The operation is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 3 hours. The surgeon makes an incision in the organ in a circle and pulls it down like a sock. Then he preliminarily cuts small areas of skin taken from the abdominal region. A penis is wrapped with a flap of skin, the foreskin is placed in its place, and sutures are applied. The volume of the enlarged organ after the operation is 4 cm The patient is on the ward for the first 5 days. Painful sensations can persist for another 15 days after surgery, so you need to monitor your general well-being.


It is performed strictly according to medical indications and is used in situations where a man has a penile injury or is unable to have sexual contact. And the operative method is also used when changing sex. The operation is performed under general anesthesia. The removal of the cavernous bodies is performed by bougienage and the introduction of semi-rigid prostheses. For 2- or 3-piece prostheses, an incision is made in the scrotum and a pump is inserted. When installing an inflatable implant, an incision is made in the lower abdominal region and the reservoir is placed behind the pubic bone.

penile prosthesis for enlargement

The positive effect after surgery can be achieved by fulfilling the following requirements:

  • strict bed rest for the first 2 days;
  • mandatory oral antibiotics for 5 days;
  • inpatient treatment for 4 days, in the absence of contraindications, rehabilitation is prescribed at home;
  • refusal of sexual intercourse for 7 weeks;
  • after resuming sexual intercourse, you should consult a doctor for further recommendations.

Postoperative complications

The risks of possible complications may increase if mistakes were made during surgery or if the man did not adequately treat the recommendations during the recovery and rehabilitation period.

There are 2 groups of complications: non-specific and specific.

First group:

  • intestinal paresis with transperitoneal access;
  • pulmonary embolism;
  • complications after anesthesia - headache in SMA.

Second group:

  • necrosis of the material obtained;
  • changes in erectile function;
  • curvature of the penis;
  • violation of the angle of erection;
  • irregular reabsorption of fat mass.

Pros and cons of operations

Each of the surgical penis enlargement methods has positive and negative sides.

Pros of ligamentotomy:

  • nothing is implanted in the skin with respect to the phalloprosthesis;
  • during the rehabilitation period, it is necessary to wear an extender, which will not cause discomfort to a man;
  • in most cases, the outcome is positive.

Cons: Incorrect use and application of the extender will lead to negative results during the rehabilitation period.

With lipofilling the advantages are:

  • the use of the person's own adipose tissue;
  • small percentage of rejection of donor material.


  • in the process, fat cells are absorbed, the procedure must be repeated 3-4 times every six months;
  • the use of synthetic components that can lead to inflammatory processes.

The advantages of microsurgical muscle transplantation are:

  • the skin takes root well;
  • slower resorption of fat cells compared to lipofilling;
  • quick and visible effect after surgery.

Negative factors include:

  • due to a violation of blood supply, there may be a possibility of rejection of the transplanted tissue;
  • pain for the first 2-3 weeks.

The advantages of phalloprosthesis are:

  • the ability to restore the sexual function of the organ;
  • the ability to lead an active sex life.


  • it is a serious damage to the patient's life;
  • inability to perform surgery if chronic diseases are present;
  • a significant increase in the negative result with previously conducted vascular operations on the penis.

When carrying out surgical interventions to increase the penis, first of all you should choose the right clinic, a highly qualified specialist and get acquainted with the necessary information on the chosen method.
