Penis Enlargement Implant for Men - FDA Cleared Surgery
Penile Enlargement FAQ
At the Penile Enlargement FAQ, you may find commonly asked questions about the procedure by our patients.
Can my partner tell that I did penis enlargement surgery? Is the implant noticeable?
The physician makes no incisions on the penis. The only incision is in the suprapubic area and can be hidden over time under the pubic hair. Patients report that if a partner has not seen the patient’s penis prior to the procedure, the partner cannot tell that there is a silicone implant present. Nevertheless, we do expect that patients discuss this procedure with their partner well in advance of the journey.
I want to get the largest size of the Penuma implant. Is that possible?
The physician will determine the maximum size that is safe for you based on your individual circumstances. All implants are customized in the operating room for the individual patient and are designed to maximize results in a safe manner.
How long must I abstain from sexual activity?
Patients are expected to abstain from all sexual activity for 6 to 8 weeks after the procedure to ensure full healing. Clearance to begin sexual activity will be given by the medical staff.
With the penile implant, am I always erect/hard?
No. The implant fits naturally with your penis whether you are in a flaccid/soft state or erect/hard state.
How much does the penis enlargement procedure cost?
All pricing will be discussed with your Patient Consultant in advance. Please note that we work with several financing companies, some that may offer interest-free financing.
What about non-surgical penis enlargement methods?
Unfortunately, no non-surgical method for penile enlargement have proven to be effective. Non-surgical methods to achieve a larger penis can include pumps, pills, or jelqing, but unfortunately, there is no proof that these methods work and can sometimes be damaging to patients.
What about surgical or so-called “non-invasive” penile enhancement methods?
Other surgical options for penile enlargement unfortunately do not work either. These surgical and “non-invasive” methods include AlloDerm, dermal grafts, collagen fillers, PMMA/silicone gel injections, fat injections, and others. You can read more specifically about fillers here: Filler Facts.
We have seen many patients come to our clinic asking to have these materials removed from their penis. Unfortunately, for many, the damage is permanent and nothing can be done. Therefore, we ask all patients to carefully conduct their research in advance.

Myths & Misconceptions About The Penis Size:
Misconception 1: The Small Penis
A study published in the September 1996 Journal of Urology concluded that average flaccid penile length was 8.8 cm (3 1/2 inches), and average erect length was 12.8 cm (5 inches); more men are now concerned about their penis size to be “average” or above than ever before.Patients seeking solutions for a small penis size frequently have a distorted view of what they actually have. Occasionally a perception of inadequate penile length is a manifestation of underlying feelings of inadequacy in general. In these instances, psychological counseling may prove helpful.
Misconception 2: You Can Increase Penis Size Without Surgery
The current growth in the market for “Male Enhancement Products” has caused the misconception that penis enlargement can be achieved by non-surgical means. No natural or chemical pill has the ability whatsoever to permanently enhance the penile size. A few “physical” techniques like vacuum devices simply cause engorgement by drawing blood into the penis. While these devices are very useful tools in the management of erectile dysfunction (ED), they do not progressively enlarge the penis. The only permanent solution to increase the penile size and achieve a progressive penis enhancement is surgery with the Penuma silicone implant.
