What is Penoplasty Surgery?

The goal of penoplasty is to increase the length and/or girth of the penis.

To increase your length, the physician will perform a penis extension surgery.

They start by making a triangular-shaped incision in your pubic area. The next step is to snip your suspensory ligament. Next, they’ll reattach it to your pubic bone a few inches lower. 

This will increase the length of your flaccid (non-erect) penis.  

Increasing girth involves transferring fat. First, your physician will obtain fat from your abdomen or flanks via liposuction. They’ll then purify that fat before injecting it into the shaft of your penis. 

You can repeat the procedure if you’re unhappy with the girth post-surgery.

The entire process is done under sedation. It takes 45 minutes to an hour and a half complete. You’ll be in and out of the clinic within a few hours, barring any complications. 

There are other penis cosmetic surgery options if you don’t need lengthening and widening. Check out to learn more about penile prosthesis and implants. 

Is Penoplasty Safe?

Penis plastic surgery is safe, but it’s important to remember that any surgery has risks. Patients must follow post-procedure care to the letter to prevent complications.

Most of the complications for penoplasty are common with other surgical procedures. Patients may tear their sutures or experience minor swelling. 

What Are the Risks?

Penoplasty should not affect ejaculation, sensitivity, or fertility. 

The ligament that’s cut during the lengthening procedure is outside of the penis. It doesn’t interfere with any of the internal structurings. No erections will be harmed in the making of your longer penis. 

Girth enhancement surgery tends to carry more risks. The fat that’s injected into the penis can sometimes be deposited into incorrect areas. This leads to bumps and lumps where there shouldn’t be.

Some physicians recommend penile fillers instead of girth extension for this reason. It’s also less traumatic and can be reversed if necessary. 

What’s Recovery Like?

Your physician will give you painkillers and antibiotics to take post-surgery. Be diligent with your medication to avoid any potential infections. You’ll also have to take medication to stop erections until you’ve had time to heal.

How Much Girth and Length Can I Expect to Gain?

One can expect a 2-4 centimeter increase in length in a flaccid state. Patients should know that penoplasty doesn’t increase your erection length. 

The average increase in girth is usually 20-30%. 

How Soon After Surgery Can I Have Sex?

You should refrain from sex for five or six weeks. You’ll want to avoid getting an erection during this time, too. 

Reclaim Your Sex Life

The average size of an erect penis is 5.16 inches. How do you stack up?

If you’re self-conscious about your size, consider giving surgical enhancements a shot. Penoplasty surgery can give you the confidence you need to be a better lover.
