Penile enlargement surgery with a silicone implant is a short procedure (45 to 60 minutes) with a high success rate. Although some people find the idea of genital operations a little worrying, this particular procedure is increasingly popular and involves a minimal incision in the pubic area. More and more men are realizing that penis enlargement is a viable long-term option that can offer permanent results.

Who is the Surgery Suitable For?
Penile enlargement surgery is suitable for a wide range of patients and conditions. If you suffer from small penis syndrome, curved penis, buried penis, or have sustained a penile injury or trauma, then the procedure can help to increase penis size. Some people opt for penis enlargement for personal or aesthetic reasons rather than medical, so it is also available as a cosmetic surgery.

One alternative that has been suggested by some is penile traction for straightening or lengthening the penis. It involves using an instrument to ‘stretch’ the penis by either pulling or pushing it but can be quite uncomfortable. These devices require years of consistent use, and there is little scientific evidence to support their usage. They are designed to increase penis length, but do not influence girth. Some men use penis pumps to provide a temporary increase in size; however, at best, this likely only lasts for 1-2 hours. Once blood flow and water retention rebalance themselves, the penis quickly returns to normal size.
Male enhancement medications designed for erectile dysfunction are sometimes used to increase penis size though they are not indicated for such use. They induce an erect penis prior to sexual intercourse and have a temporary effect that is especially beneficial for older men. However, these types of medication encourage blood flow to cause an erection and do not increase penis size over the long-term.
Finally, method such as fillers, fat injections, Alloderm, and others can cause severe damage to the penile skin. Many patients who have tried these methods have come to our clinic to attempt to have the materials removed, often after they have formed nodules and other skin abnormalities. Most physicians will avoid the use of these materials for penile enhancement.
