What is penis enlargement?
Penis enlargement is a procedure that aims to increase the length or girth of the penis. The penis can enlarge in two ways: by lengthening or widening. In some instances, both procedures can be done together.
What are the types of penis enlargement procedures?
There are two types of penis enlargement procedures – the one that requires surgery and a minimally invasive option. The latter can be accomplished by injecting fat into the penis or inserting tissue and fat grafts. These options do not require intensive procedures and can be achieved with local anaesthesia.
In fat injections, the doctor will use your fat cells to increase the width and girth of your penis. Known as autologous fat injection, the doctor will harvest fat cells from an appropriately identified area in the body through a micro-incision. Then, the fat cells are processed to remove non-fat tissues. Finally, the doctor will inject the fat through a tiny incision on the penis. This is considered the most crucial step in the procedure since how the fat is injected will influence the aesthetic outcome—the goal is to have a natural-looking penis.
As a bonus, an autologous fat injection avoids any possibility of rejection of tissues since it uses your body fat. Consequently, there is minimal discomfort, pain, and scarring.
The other procedure, a dermal-fat graft, is also performed under local anaesthesia. The method involves enveloping a dermal fat graft sheet around the corpora, the two columns of spongy tissue in the shaft of the penis. Meanwhile, the doctor will apply the graft directly to Buck’s fascia, a deep layer covering the three erectile bodies of the penis. Because the graft is placed between the Dartos fascia and Buck’s fascia, new blood vessels will develop, giving a more desirable outcome.
What are the reasons why men undergo penis enlargement?
Notwithstanding having a penis that is functional for urination and sexual intercourse, some are still inclined to consider enlargement or augmentation. Medical conditions such as micropenis or microphallus, which result in a smaller than average size, or other issues like prostate cancer and Peyronie’s disease, may likewise necessitate this procedure. Additionally, personal perceptions and intimate reasons are significant considerations. As a rule of thumb, a consultation with a medical professional is essential to explore individual suitability and options.
Who is eligible for penis enlargement surgery?
Eligibility for penis enlargement surgery is typically determined on an individual basis, considering both physical and psychological suitability. Medical conditions that result in a smaller than average size or functional issues are considered factors for this procedure. Additionally, candidates should be over 18 years old with no previous penile surgeries or implants other than circumcision. An eligible candidate must also be in good physical health and have no medical problems that could interfere with the procedure.
How much does penis enlargement cost?
The cost of penis enlargement surgery in Australia can vary widely based on several factors such as the surgeon’s experience, complexity of the procedure, facility where the surgery is performed, and specific technique used. Prices are typically within the ballpark of $3,000 AUD to $15,000 AUD. It’s important to consult with a qualified medical professional in the region to receive a detailed assessment and personalised quote, as the cost can fluctuate depending on individual requirements and desired outcomes.
