Penis Lengthening – Male Enhancement Surgery
Penile enlargement can be accomplished through penis lengthening and penis widening. Both male enhancement procedures are considered cosmetic surgery.
Penile lengthening was first performed in the early 1980s. Originally, performed as a reconstructive procedure on a man who was injured as a child, the success of this procedure makes it possible to offer it to adult males who desire more length to their penis.
Approximately half of the penis, three to four inches, is positioned inside the body. It is attached to the pubic bone by the suspensory ligament. When this ligament is released, the penis drops, or extends, further outside the body, increasing the outside length. A small incision is made in the pubic area which will be covered by pubic hair so no scar is visible. No incision is made in the penis.
There is no way to tell before having penis surgery the exact amount of length you will gain. Although the length gain varies between patients, everyone achieves some gain. You can expect to achieve an extra one to two inches in length in the flaccid state, less in the erect state. When you consider that the average length of the normal flaccid penis is 2-4 inches, this is a big deal.
Achieving the best possible results after your penis enlargement is also dependent on your adherence to post-op exercises and instructions provided by Dr. Capriotti. You should also refrain from active sports and sexual activity for one month after Phalloplasty surgery and because the surgery is done as an outpatient procedure, you can expect to experience only minor discomfort.
Contact Dr. Capriotti to schedule a consultation to discuss which penile enlargement procedure is the best choice for you.
