Penile Lengthening and Girth Enhancement
When it comes to penile enhancement, you typically have two options to choose from. You can either use oils, lotions, massage therapy, vacuum devices, stimulation, and other non-invasive techniques to produce the desired results or, you can choose a more permanent option which involves a male enhancement surgery that both increases the penile length and girth of your penis.
Planning Penis Lengthening Surgery
Some men feel their penis is too thin. This can often be corrected, either in combination with an extension procedure or as a separate one. Transplanting fat to the penis shaft can thicken the penis. The size of the thickened area depends on how much of the fat stays in place. As a rule of thumb, approximately 30%-50% of the injected fat stays in permanently. The final result is visible in three months. Should the patient desire extra thickness, a touch up procedure is recommended in 12 months time.
1. Penis lengthening surgery: The extension of the penis can be anything from a few centimetres up to 25% of its length while at rest. In specific cases an extension of 4 cm is possible. How long the extension will be is not clearly evident until the time of surgery. The operation is performed under general anaesthetic or local anaesthetics with twilight sleep (sedation).
In order to extend the penis, the ligament that suspends the penis inside the body is loosened, so that part of the penis which was inside the body is ejected and ends up on the outside. Then, the erectile tissue is fastened to its new position, followed by inter positioning of fatty tissue to further elongate and stabilise the penis during erection. Finally the skin flap advanced to further elongate the skin of the penis at its base.
Erection ability is not influenced by the procedure. As long as no complications ensue, the sensitivity of the skin and the head of the penis are not altered.
2. Penile thickening procedure: The surgeon uses a refined fat transplant technique. Fat is usually extracted out of the pubic area, abdomen and waist lines in a mini-liposuction procedure. which is then followed by fat purification. Once blood and oil removed from the fatty tissue, the resultant healthy fatty cells are ready to be injected around the penis shaft through puncture hole. Normally, 20-30ml of fat is needed to fill the whole shaft and crown of penis. Post-operative pain is not usually severe.
The procedure is performed as a day surgery. Erection ability is not influenced by the procedure. Penile lengthening: Any pain after surgery is normally manageable with simple painkillers. However, the penis may swell, and erections during this time can be painful. The discomfort diminishes after the 3rd day of surgery. You will also be asked to take oral Antibiotic as a prophylactic measurement against infection.
You will have a simple dressing at the pubic area. It is extremely important to keep the area clean and to shower twice a day from the 3rd day after the procedure.
The sutures are dissolvable. The wound will be reviewed 5-7 days after surgery.
Any pain after surgery is normally linked to the area where the liposuction has been performed, rather than the penis. However, the penis will swell in the first week, and erections during this time can be painful. The discomfort diminishes after the 3rd day of surgery. You will also be asked to take oral
Antibiotic as a prophylactic measurement against infection.

Can both be done at the same time?
It is possible to perform lengthening and enlargement of the penis during the same surgical session. Indeed, the combined procedure is the most frequently performed (70% of cases) because it ensures the maintenance of the correct proportion between length and girth of the penis. A too long penis could visually appear thin, while an overly large penis could give the visual impression of inadequate length.
Penile lengthening is carried out through the division of the suspensory ligament, in order to allow the forward movement of the corpora; while the most common technique for penile girth enhancement consists of autologous fat transfer, whereby adipose tissue harvested from areas such as the hips is grafted into the dartos fascia of the penis, with no involvement of the erectile tissues. The main advantage of autologous fat grafting is the use of the patient’s own adipose tissue.
All our procedures are outpatient procedures, with discharge within a few hours from the surgery.
