A micropenis is a physical condition that can leave a man feeling embarrassed and even fearful about engaging in intimate relations. An infant or child who is exhibiting the symptoms of a micropenis should be treated early so the penis develops normally. Adults or adolescents with this condition can live a more confident life through treatment. Dr. Elist is recognized for his work in treating men who are living with a micropenis.
Why does a Micropenis happen?
The condition may come about due to various physical factors, including:
- Genetic conditions and diseases
- Pituitary or hypothalamus gland deficiencies or conditions
- Decreased body production of testosterone or other critical hormones impacting penis growth and size
How do you fix it?
Whatever the underlying condition that resulted in a child, teenager, or adult male to have a micropenis, treating the condition is an urgent and personal matter. Dr. Elist has focused his practice on this area of medicine for decades and offers male patients the opportunity to have a more positive, confident life through effective treatments.
What is a Micropenis?
When the penis has not developed correctly and is abnormally small with a normal configuration, the condition is termed a “micropenis.” The size of a micropenis is about three inches or less when flaccid and about five inches when erect. A penis of this size typically has an abnormal position of the opening of the urethra, a medical condition called “hypospadia.” These conditions can be resolved with the help of Dr. Elist, leading urologist in Beverly Hills.
Treatments for Micropenis
Effective treatment for a micropenis will be based upon identifying the underlying cause of the condition. If penile size in an infant or child is diagnosed as being the result of a hormone deficiency, a custom hormone therapy treatment is often an effective way to help a male child develop correctly and have a normal penis size. It is important to seek treatment for a male child as early as possible if you believe he is not developing normally.
Micropenis Treatment for Adults
Men or adolescents who are living with a micropenis and did not undergo hormone treatment as a child, or have had limited results with hormones deserve help that produces real-world results. Penile enlargement surgery is an option. This treatment allows a male patient to have enhanced penile size through implanting a soft silicone implant to enhance length and girth.
What can I expect during micropenis surgery?
The surgery takes about 45 minutes to complete. The incision is placed at the base of your penis near the groin to avoid incisions or scarring on the penis itself. The Penuma® implant is a crescent-shaped piece of silicone that replicates the feel of natural tissue. It is inserted and positioned to create greater volume and the incision closed.
What is recovery like after micropenis treatment?
You will be able to return home the same day as your micropenis surgery. The recovery period is typically short because only one incision is required near the groin. You will likely need a few days off of work or other physical activities, but most men resume their daily routine quickly. You should refrain from sexual activity until you have completely healed.
Are there any side effects?
Micropenis treatment typically has a high rate of success. The majority of men will experience greater confidence and retain all normal functions of their penis. You may experience some soreness, discomfort, or bruising near the incision, but those are temporarily and will dissipate on their own within a few days. You may experience some swelling for up to a few weeks after your procedure. Serious complications are very rare due to Dr. Elist's years of experience helping men resolve a micropenis condition.
What results can I expect?
There is a high rate of success with micropenis surgery. After the incision has healed, you can enjoy a larger penis and boosted confidence in and out of the bedroom. Your inhibitions of the past will be gone, and sexual contact will no longer be intimidating. Once healed, your penis will look and feel completely natural. Your micropenis treatment will provide the length and girth you desire while still maintaining normal function of your penis.
How Can a Penis be Enlarged?
In the past, men with a micropenis just lived with the condition – but modern surgical techniques have made it possible to create a normally-sized penis with the use of a custom penile implant. This implant is created from a soft silicone that has the feel of natural tissue. It is surgically implanted to increase the length and girth of the penis. With thousands of penile enlargement surgeries completed, Dr. Elist is one of the most qualified and experienced practitioners in the field. His patients who were living with a micropenis have report that their lives have significantly improved after penile enlargement surgery.
Can I Get a Bigger Penis?
The short answer is yes. Every guy has a unique situation, but in most cases, a bigger penis can be attained with Penuma® surgery in Beverly Hills. The Penuma® implant is the first cleared penile implant, and has been successfully implanted by Dr. Elist in thousands of patients to date. The benefits include:
- Looks and feels natural
- No interference with natural functions
- Short, out-patient procedure
- No incisions or scars formed on penis
- Short recovery time
*Individual results may vary. A detailed list of potential risks, complications, benefits, and alternatives, including no surgery, will be discussed with each patient in advance
Can I customize the Penuma® implant?
Certainly. The implant comes in three sizes: large, extra-large, and extra-extra-large. Once you choose the size, the implant can be further customized to fit your needs. The implant is made to look and feel natural in order to yield the best result, so we go to great lengths to make sure your implant is exactly what you want.
Is recovery painful?
The groin is a very sensitive area, and some men hesitate to undergo micropenis surgery for that reason. However, recovery is typically well-tolerated with minimal side effects. Most side effects are easily mitigated with medication, and the incision typically heals quickly. Any discomfort is typically associated with the incision and goes away quickly as the incision heals.
Will I have visible scarring?
The incision is disguised in the groin area to avoid visible scarring on the penis. The incision will be visible immediately following surgery, but over the following few months it should heal down into a thin, nearly imperceptible line. Dr. Elist uses state-of-the-art tools and technology to avoid complications and promote fast healing. The scar eventually loses any residual redness and blends in with the skin in the area.
When can I engage in intimacy?
With increased self-confidence you may be ready to put yourself out there and confidently engage in sexual activities. However, it is vital that you refrain from sexual activity until fully healed to allow for the best possible results. You will need to abstain from intercourse and masturbation for up to six weeks following your procedure.
How much does micropenis treatment cost?
Micropenis treatment will vary based on many factors, including the type of treatment you receive, your goals, and your budget. Micropenis treatment is typically not covered by insurance. Surgery is considered elective, but provides long-lasting, natural results. Dr. Elist will discuss your condition and help you determine the best course of action in an initial consultation.
