  • A complete list of potential risks, complications, benefits, and alternatives, including no surgery, will be discussed in detail between you and the medical staff before any procedure.

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.
