If you’ve thought about having Houston penis enlargement surgery, then you likely have plenty of questions. One of the most common questions we hear from men and their partners is whether the procedure will affect erections. Many are concerned about how the penis will feel, whether erections will be firmer or softer, or if the penis will look differently.
How Does Houston Penis Enlargement Work?
There are two types of Houston penis enlargement surgery that we offer: lengthening and widening. The lengthening procedure involves releasing the suspensory ligament. About half of the penis actually sits inside the body, attached to the pubic bone by the suspensory ligament. When we release this ligament, this allows more of the penis to hang outside the body. This is how we perform lengthening cosmetic procedures on the penis.
By contrast, widening procedures involve transferring the patient’s own fat to the penis to increase the circumference. First, we remove fat from your body using liposuction, generally in the pubic fat pad. Then, we use the Puregraft technique to filter and purify the fat before injecting it into the penis for girth gain. We prefer this penile surgery method to fillers and implants because there is virtually no chance of rejection, as this is your own tissue.
Will Houston Penis Enlargement Change My Erections?
Naturally, if you’re looking for Houston penis enlargement, you want to make sure that the penis will still function adequately. Many people are concerned about how penile enlargement procedures will affect erections.
Lengthening Penile Surgery
The suspensory ligament simply supports the penis in its erect state. Therefore, suspensory ligament release surgery should have no effect on erection quality or strength. However, in some cases, you may notice that your erection angle changes slightly after Houston penis enlargement surgery. After suspensory ligament release, you may notice that the angle of your erection is lower than before. However, most patients don’t experience this and this doesn’t affect the function of your penis.
Once again, widening penile surgery doesn’t involve changing the tissue responsible for erections, the corpora cavernosa. Therefore, it shouldn’t affect erection strength, quality, or frequency. We place the purified fat between the outer skin of the penis and the erectile tissue for natural-looking results and to avoid affecting erectile function. Most people describe the feel of the flaccid penis after widening procedures as soft to the touch, with a marshmallow-like texture. During an erection, the fat compresses and generally feels similar in texture and firmness as your erections before the procedure.
