Many men mention embarrassment or self-consciousness while in the locker room or when they are with their partner. You may feel a longer penis would improve your self-esteem and self-confidence. After penis enlargement surgery, patients speak enthusiastically about satisfaction with the results and report a positive sense of feeling more confident.
The surgery increases the non-erect length of your penis and, to a lesser extent, the erect length. The average gain in length is 4 cm (1.5 inches) but varies from person to person. It’s not possible to know ahead of time how much actual length you will gain after the surgery.
The surgery is done under general anaesthetic. Release of the internal part of your penis is done by dividing a ligament holding it in place. In addition, a muscle technique is used to ensure the long-term effectiveness of the surgery. Sometimes, liposuction to the area above your penis will be recommended if this area is too full and is masking the full length of the penile shaft.
After the surgery you will be able to control any pain with medication and most men don’t require it any longer by the 5th day following surgery. You will have to pay attention to special instructions in order to keep the extra length gained during the operation –specifically, you will need to wear weights and wrap your penis for 12 weeks. This is done during the day only and is inconspicuous in regular clothing. Most men require 1 week off work, but this varies with the job. Sexual activity must be avoided for 3 to 4 weeks afterwards, and high energy sports for 6 weeks.
Penile lengthening is real surgery. Before you decide, it’s important to learn about any possible complications, even though they are rare. These will be fully explained to you during your private consultation with Dr. Bowman. At that time, you will have an opportunity for a careful and complete discussion of your options and what is involved. You will benefit from asking all your questions and browsing through our photographs.
