Penis enlargement


enlargement of the glans penis

The border (corona) of the glans penis can be widened by injection with a filler in the office. Numbing cream makes the treatment painless. The diameter of the glans is widened relative to the diameter of the body of the penis.


penis widening with a filler

a filler gel can be injected under the skin of the penile shaft outside the erectile bodies. This causes an enlargement that feels soft to touch and mainly changes the aspect of the penis in a flaccid state. The erectile columns in the penis determine length and hardness during erection, which is not changed by the treatment. Usually, 10 ml. of gel is injected. Extra injections may be performed a few weeks later if wished for. This filler, when locatedl under the skin, is usually digested over a period of two to three years. Top-up injections are usually performed after a year.


operative penis widening (girth enhancement)

The body of the penis can be widened operatively by fat injection (lipofilling). General anaesthesia and admission in a hospital day clinic are required. The fat is harvested by careful liposuction from the abdomen or the thighs. It is injected under the skin of the penis. The erectile tissue itself (the cavernous and spongious bodies) cannot be enlarged by this operation. Deep injection in the penis is not possible.

Like for any operation there are temporary inconveniences such as pain, bruising and swelling and complications have been described, such as infection, irregular take of the fat grafts and the general complications of surgery under general anaesthesia.
