Penile Girth Enhancement Surgery
The girth of the penis refers to the circumference of the penis. Girth enhancement refers to a thickening of the girth of the penis, or an increase in penile circumference. In order to increase the girth of the penis, something must be added to it. A previous technique that used fat transfer (Free Fat Transfer) had many disadvantages, including lack of uniform fat distribution, secondary to uneven fat absorption; shrinkage, secondary to constant fat absorption and disappearance over time; and lumps, clumps and bumps on the shaft of the penis, secondary to fat sequestration and fat graft displacement during sexual activities. The best solution is a graft that can be attached in a flat position and stitched to the penile fascia.
This surgery primarily increases the non-erect (flaccid) length of the penis and, to a lesser extent, the erect length. The average penis length that a patient gains as a result of this surgery varies from person to person, and may or may not fall into the normal range of one-half to one-and-one-half additional inches in the flaccid position. It is not possible to determine before surgery how much length the patient will gain from the surgery. Separation of the penis from the pubic bone, combined with suprapubic liposuction, enhances the length of the penis, and additional length can be gained by repositioning the scrotal pubic fold closer to the pubic area.
Girth enhancement surgery can increase the circumference of the shaft of the penis from a 10% increase to a 30% increase over the existing pre-operative circumference size, depending on the number and size of the grafts used during this surgery.
