The Truth about Penis Enlargement

Let’s cut through some of the myths surrounding penis enlargement because like most things in medical circles, there are quite a few. Because we provide more penis enlargement procedures than any other centre in the UK, we feel that we have seen and heard most of the penis enlargement myths.

There are a lot of myths surrounding penis enlargement. This video explains the myths of men who are seeking alternatives for erection problems

1. You can have an enormous penis

Even penis enlargement surgery and treatments have their limitations. When you choose to go ahead with surgery, you should know exactly what can and cannot, be achieved.

We know that in terms of length 95 % of men have an extra one to two inches more in the flaccid length of the penis. In girth, we are able to achieve between one and two inches more in both the flaccid and erect girth of the penis with a penis girth fat transfer, depending on initial absorption rates. These are the results that most patients get from the surgery at Moorgate Andrology and Gynaecology.

Penis enlargement injections (penis fillers) increase girth by one to two centimetres depending on the amount of filler you choose to have of course. Your penis length also plays a part. If you have a particularly long penis it will be able to take more filler. You can have periodic top up treatments to increase the girth even more if you wish.

2. Penis Fillers increase penis length

This is another of the penis enlargement common misconceptions. Penis fillers focus on increasing the girth of the penis.

The length may appear longer because the penis just looks bigger and the weight of the filler may make the penis hang a bit lower, but technically the length is the same as before. Real penis lengthening comes from the ligamentolysis procedure.

3. Penis enlargement will make me a better lover

Having a bigger penis may not make you a better lover in itself. However, if you have increased self-confidence because of the surgery or treatment, then you (and your partner) are likely to enjoy lovemaking more.

4. I can have sex straight away with my bigger penis

This is not possible. There has to be a period of time for the treatment or surgery to settle before you can have sex again. If you have sex too soon, you can compromise the results. Be sure to follow the correct advice of the Doctors after treatment or surgery, and you will be back to what you like doing best in no time. Generally speaking, you cannot have sex for six weeks after penis enlargement surgery and two weeks for penis fillers.

5. I am the first guy to get it done

Most guys that go ahead with penis enlargement do not tell anyone about their intention to do so. We carry out hundreds of procedures each year, but you perhaps wouldn’t know it. We filmed a documentary for the BBC called “The Penis Extension Clinic” which raised a lot of awareness about penis enlargement surgery, as did the ITV on This Morning, about penis fillers which featured a Moorgate Andrology and Gynaecology patient who had 15ml of penis filler. However, most guys still get the procedure done and remain firmly anonymous.

6. My partners will know I have had a penis enlargement

Your partner is unlikely to know that you have had a penis enlargement. This is the case for both penis enlargement surgery and penis enlargement fillers. Advances in both surgical and non-surgical penis enlargements are now producing results which are largely undetectable.

7. I won’t be able to father children after penis enlargement

The ability to father children remains intact after penis enlargement surgery.

8. I can get a penis enlargement on the NHS

Unless you have a condition called “Micropenis” it is not a procedure that is available on the National Health Service. Penis enlargement surgery and treatments are considered “aesthetic” procedures and are performed to improve appearance, not function. If you have difficulty getting or sustaining an erection, then that is a different matter of course.

9. I must have a circumcision if I have penis enlargement

This is not the case. Sometimes the foreskin can become tight after surgery or treatment, but usually, this is temporary. In very rare cases if the foreskin remains tight, you may require a circumcision. If you would like to have a circumcision at the same time as penis enlargement surgery, this can be done of course.

10. I need a seven-inch penis to be able to have sex

There are perhaps more misconceptions about what is the “normal” size of a man’s penis than anything else we hear. You do not need an enormous penis to be able to satisfy your partner. We see Patients who are technically within the normal penis size range but are lacking confidence in their size and just want something that looks bigger and better. According to studies the average size of a man’s penis when flaccid is 3.5 inches and 5.1 inches when erect. The main point here is getting to a point where you are confident and happy with your size.

11. I will lose all the fat in three months after penis enlargement surgery

A fat transfer to increase your penis girth is still the most requested option of all penis girth procedures. This is because after the initial absorption period of around three months, the remaining fat becomes living tissue with its own blood supply. At this point the remaining fat becomes permanent. Most men achieve permanent girth gains of between one and two inches. Of course, you cannot stop the ageing process and you may wish to have a fat top up in future years to keep your penis looking its best.
