The objective of penis enlargement and thickening surgery is to achieve a proportionate penis whose size is the maximum possible. One of the most frequently asked questions about penis enlargement and thickening surgery is the result we can achieve. We have cases in which an increase at rest of more than ten centimeters is achieved, but there are also cases in which the increase is much smaller. Likewise, the increase in erection is more difficult to measure but it is proportional to the increase at rest. What we can say is that it is a surgery with a very high rate of satisfaction, and that patients feel happy after undergoing it.
The definitive increase is not observed until six months or a year after surgery. This is due to the fact that inflammation and retraction of the tissues after surgery greatly conditions its development.
That is why the answer must always be that we cannot predict how much we will be able to thicken or enlarge the penis. This is because we depend entirely on the anatomy and structures present in the penis. We can talk about the average we get in our results and that is why it is essential to see real results before deciding on surgery, but we can never extrapolate them to a specific patient before doing the surgery. That is why we cannot promise a certain result.
Why can’t we know how much of the penis we can enlarge or thicken? Because we depend on two internal elements, such as the amount of penis attached to the pubis that the patient has and the angulation of the pubis with respect to the penis.
In penis enlargement surgery we must prioritize a good erection angle and a good functionality of the penis over getting more centimeters. The more ligament we release, the more progress we can make, but the greater the decrease in the erection angle. In surgery we constantly check the erection angle of the penis and generally release as much of the penis as possible until the erection angle reaches 90 degrees to the abdomen. At that point we have to stop. At that point we will have patients in whom we reach length increases of up to fifteen centimeters, while in other patients we may stay at barely half a centimeter.
This should not be understood as a success or failure, in patients with a basal penis of half a centimeter an increase of one centimeter means tripling the size of their penis. However, achieving a five centimeter increase in a patient with a basal penis of ten centimeters is a smaller percentage increase. We will always try to make the penis as large as possible, but in a natural way and prioritizing to avoid functional alteration of the penis.
Regarding the increase in erection will be proportional to the increase at rest, although other elements such as the musculature of the base of the penis or the diameter of the arteries that reach the penis and its distribution after surgery are factors that influence this gain.
As for the thickening, it must be done proportionally to the lengthening to prevent it from being excessive and not taking away proportionality from the penis, the increase depends on the adaptation of the cells that we place in the penis and ranges from a few millimeters to five to six centimeters. Again we depend on the basal penis and structures. We must understand that more is not always better. The cells we place must survive and settle in the new location. If we place the correct cell volume in the penis we ensure their survival. However, if we do it excessively, this decreases exponentially and the result can be much less.
In short, as in any surgery, we cannot assure results, but we can put the means to try to look for the same. In the case of penis enlargement and thickening surgery, the result usually brings a lot of satisfaction to the patient, being essential to understand how the surgery is and the dependence of its anatomy to achieve the best possible result while minimizing complications.
