The size of the penis depends on the structural characteristics of the man and his heredity. In some cases, insufficient penis size is due to hormonal disorders or congenital anomalies.
Currently, the only effective way to enlarge the penis is surgery. However, before deciding on an operation, a man should consider all possible contraindications and consult a specialist surgeon.
Types of functions
With the help of plastic surgery, penis enlargement can be achieved in length and width. Men often resort to combined surgery. There are many techniques for resizing the penis:
- Port resection is a procedure to increase the length of the penis. This technique is considered the most modern and safe, but is contraindicated in patients with erectile dysfunction. Its essence lies in the incision of the suspension joint (apoligamentum suspensorium penis - suspension of the penile ligament, incision - dissection). The operation allows you to increase the size by 1-2 cm and the subsequent wear of a special orthopedic device (dilator) increases the penis by 4-6b. After sphincterogenesis, our clinic may recommend liposuction to increase the thickness and align the shape of the penis.
- Lipofilling is a procedure used to thicken the penis. This can be achieved by inserting the patient's adipose tissue under the skin of the genital organ. The operation can enlarge the penis with a diameter of about 1 cm. It does not require much recovery, however, the result is short-lived.
- Muscle transplant is a complex surgery that aims to increase the diameter of the penis. The transplant uses tissue from the abdominal wall or fascia. The flap is placed in the genital organ, the vessels are sutured. As a result, the diameter of the penis can increase by 3-4 cm. Falloprosthetics is performed exclusively according to strict indications, such as not only the insufficient size of the penis, but also its dysfunction. Cartilage tissue or elastic materials are used for prosthesis.
With the exception of developmental abnormalities, when penis enlargement is necessary to have a normal sex life, this operation is performed for aesthetic reasons.
If the penis is functioning normally and the man can reproduce, then there is no immediate indication for surgery. How much phalloplasty is required - the specialist will decide.
Penis enlargement surgery is contraindicated if the patient has serious diseases, damage to internal organs, blood clotting disorders, diabetes, oncology, etc.
The decision on the possibility of phalloplasty will be made by the treating physician, based on the test results and the patient's state of health.
Preparing for surgery
Before the operation, the surgeon consults the patient. The doctor will tell you about all the possible risks and consequences, as well as choose the most appropriate surgical technique.
In the preparatory stage, a man should undergo a full body examination for possible contraindications. The patient should donate blood and urine, undergo an ECG and x-ray, and be examined by a urologist.
Regardless of the method chosen in the clinic, the operation will be performed under general anesthesia. The course of the operation depends on the desired result, as well as on the chosen technique.Lynatotomy and liposuction take about an hour on average. Muscle transplant - about 3 hours. The duration of the prosthetic operation is 1-2 hours.
The recovery period after stiffening is relatively short: after surgery, the patient should remain in the hospital for about 2 days. After leaving, you should come regularly for examination and dressing. After 2-3 weeks, the seam becomes almost invisible. You should wear the extension for at least 6 months.
Falloprosthetics will require a longer and more serious recovery period. Its duration depends on the man's body.
The recovery period after a muscle transplant will last at least 5 weeks.
A small penis is a very sensitive problem that prevents a man from living a normal life. The specialists of the "CM-Clinic" medical center have the necessary qualifications for penis enlargement surgery. To learn more about phalloplasty, make an appointment with a surgeon.
