Interested in penis lengthening? You’re not alone. According to a 2019 survey by Men’s Health, about 17% of men felt their penises were too small. Depending on your situation, there are a few things you can try to help you look bigger and feel more confident about your penis. For instance, there are a few non-surgical things you can do to give a slight boost and may give the illusion of a longer penis. However, it’s important to remember that surgery is generally the most effective way to help make your penis look bigger.
Things that Can Give the Illusion of Penis Lengthening
First of all, let’s dispel some myths. Studies suggest “jelqing” doesn’t work, and there is likely no magic pill that will make your penis bigger. In fact, those things could even be dangerous. However, if you want to try a few things before opting for surgery, then you can focus on things that may give the illusion of penis enlargement. This primarily has to do with the look of your pubic area.
If you want your penis to look bigger, then consider burning some fat, specifically around the pubic area. Extra fat or skin can hide more of your penis, making it look smaller. So, it might be time to hit the gym if you’re concerned that your penis looks small.
Another option is penile surgery called pubic tuck. This is common to use after reaching and maintaining your ideal weight. A pubic tuck can include liposuction to get rid of stubborn fat deposits in the pubic area as well as tightening excess skin after weight loss. Getting rid of extra fat and skin in the pubic area can help reveal more of your penis. This can help give the illusion that you’re larger.
Also, “manscaping” may also help make you look slightly longer. Manscaping is a common slang term for trimming or shaving your pubic hair. Just like extra fat or skin, a lot of extra hair in the area can hide some of your penis from view and make it appear shorter or smaller. So, trimming or shaving can help uncover more of the penis and may make a small difference in how big you look.
Surgery is the Only Way to Get Real Penis Enlargement
We’ve discussed these non-surgical options that may help you look larger, but surgery may offer more predictable results. Penis lengthening surgery helps more of your penis hang outside of the body to increase apparent length. How it works is we go in through the pubic area and release the suspensory ligament that holds the penis to the pubic bone. This allows more of the penis to hang outside of the body, which increases length. You can also often combine this procedure with others, like a pubic tuck and girth increasing surgeries to enhance the overall look of your penis.
