Penoplasty is an operation preferred by people who complain about penile thickness. This surgery is also known as penile aesthetics.

Insufficient penis size can be a concern for men in some cases. In fact, these complaints cause a lack of self-confidence, a feeling of incompleteness, and problems in their social and sexual life. There is a possibility that the person experiencing these problems may withdraw from sexual intercourse. Penoplasty, which many men utilize in this context, is a plastic surgery procedure.

The penis gains volume when an erection occurs; expands in girth and length. The average length of the erect penis is 12-13 cm. While this length is considered normal, lengths below 12 cm are considered short. In addition, the fact that the thickness of the penis is thinner than normal can cause anxiety in the person. For this reason, men often turn to penile lengthening surgery.

Can Medicines and Creams Enlarge Penis?

Many drugs and creams are sold on the Internet for penile lengthening or penile thickening. A normal penis is small. But it grows when erect. For this reason, people think that by using these drugs or creams, the penis size can become larger. But such a thing is not possible. Due to the anatomical structure of the penis, growth is not possible. Unfortunately, there is a possibility that drugs and creams can cause allergic reactions and erection problems that have not been seen before. Do not believe the drugs and creams that are sold to you on the internet or elsewhere with the promise of penis enlargement or penis lengthening. If you are complaining about the length and thickness of your penis, consult a specialist doctor.

Who Is Penoplasty Performed On?

  • People whose penis length is shorter than normal,
  • Penises with deformities due to circumcision errors,
  • People whose penis thickness is lower than normal,
  • People whose penis is curved in different directions,
  • People with excess fat on the penis can apply for penoplasty.

Penis surgeries are performed with spinal anesthesia (numbing from the waist down) or general anesthesia. These surgeries do not cause any loss in sensation, sensitivity, pleasure and erection.

Penis Lengthening

In this surgery, a ligament, known as the suspensory ligament of the penis, is cut between the root of the penis and the pubis bone. Thus, the part of the penis buried beneath the skin is utilized. With this piece, the length of the penis is elongated. It should not be forgotten that the penis in the normal position lengthens. Elongation of the erect penis is also seen. As a result of the surgery, there is an elongation of about 4-5 cm. Another method used in overweight people is the removal of fat in that area. The purpose of this process is to reveal the buried penis. In this way, the elongation of the penis is provided.

Penis Enlargement

Penis enlargement surgeries are performed using special fillers, composite tissue transfers and fat injections. Fat injection is the most preferred method among these methods. Fat tissue is taken from other parts of the body. This tissue is injected into the determined area of the patient by applying some special procedures.

After this procedure, 40% of the tissues transferred to the area become permanent after 6 months. During this period, the remaining fats in the penis are permanent. Upon the request of the patient, this surgery can be repeated after 6 months.

Penis Thickening with Filler Injection

The prepared special filling material is injected to the appropriate places to provide thickening. The permanence or temporary nature of this method varies depending on the ingredients in the injected filler. The filler injection procedure is performed under general anesthesia. It is generally successful.

Penis Thickening with Tissue Transfer and Fat Transfer

Tissues from the person’s own body are taken. These taken tissues are injected into the suitable fat tissues in the penis. General anesthesia or spinal anesthesia is used in this operation.

As we mentioned, there are two different methods in penis thickening procedures. The doctor performs the necessary tests and examinations for the person. And, as a result of these, decides which method will be successful and applies that method. Success in methods differs from person to person. Success can be achieved by performing tissue transfer operation on one patient and fat injection on another patient.

Curved Penises

Surgery is required for deformity caused by incorrect circumcision, curving of the penis in a different direction during erection, and curvatures caused by some traumas. Curvature is diagnosed during erection. It causes pain during sex. This problem is corrected by surgery and straightened. The recovery process in the penis after surgery varies from person to person. In general, if a date needs to be given, there is recovery within 7-14 days. Generally, healing is observed in the cut area in the first week. However, swelling, bruising, and any uncomfortable sensations improve within two weeks.

Considerations After Penoplasty

  • Attention should be paid to the cleanliness of the operated area in order not to get any infections. In addition, it is important that the wound is redressed regularly.
  • In order to reduce the swelling that will occur after penoplasty, you can wrap ice in a towel and cool it without damaging the tissue and skin.
  • Sexual intercourse and masturbation are dangerous until the tissues in the penis are completely healed. This period is approximately 1.5-2 months.
  • If your doctor has given you drugs that you need to use, use these drugs regularly. There might be a risk of complications if medication is not used.
  • Avoid tight clothing for a while, such as tight-fitting underwear and trousers.
  • Wait 20 days to exercise after the surgery. After this period, you can start exercising.
  • You can use supportive underwear after penoplasty.
  • You should not take a shower for 3 days after the operation. At the same time, it is inadvisable to take a shower with hot water for 7 days after the operation.

Penoplasty Complications

Complication is the occurrence of an unexpected negative situation in the patient. It may occur during or after surgery. Possible complications after penoplasty;

  • You may feel short-term inflammation, bruising and swelling in the penis.
  • It is quite normal for edemas to occur during the recovery of the tissue.
  • Another possible complication is infection.
  • Penis aesthetics is one of the more sensitive procedures. For this reason, it should be performed carefully in order to not damage the penile nerves and to prevent thickening and elongation beyond what is intended.
  • Injected fats can cause some irregularities in the penis.
  • Fats injected for thickening sometimes melt prematurely. This causes fat leakage. On average, a discharge occurs for 1 week, and then it resolves on its own.
  • Although very rarely, cluster occurs with the fats.
  • Penile curvature, penile thickening, penile lengthening surgery may result in a loss of sensation and dysfunction in the penis.

Penoplasty Surgery Costs

Each hospital and doctor has their own special price policy. Factors such as the location of the hospital, the technological infrastructure used during the surgery, the teams that will take part in the surgery may change the price. The quality of the surgical materials to be used in the surgery and the prices of penile aesthetics are related to each other. There may also be those who want a thickening procedure in addition to penis enlargement surgery only. In this context, prices vary.

There is a noticeable change in men after the surgery. Satisfaction from sexual life increases, and the bond between them and their partner is strengthened. Since it is a very sensitive organ for men, the most questioned factor is the experience of the surgeon who will perform the operation. After the surgery, men begin to be more self-confident. In summary, thanks to penile enlargement surgery, the problem of penile length and penile thickness, which is of great importance in both social and sexual life, is eliminated.
