2) What does penis enlargement surgery involve? What are the benefits of the operation?
Penis enlargement surgery uses the fat transfer technique. This involves injecting fat from another part of the patient’s body into the penis to enlarge it. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with liposuction if the patient so desires. It is a true and tested technique. It should be noted that injecting of silicon directly into the penis as practiced in some South American countries can lead to serious complications. Penis enlargement surgery also allows lengthening of the penis.
3) Is penis lengthening possible during the penis enlargement surgery? By how much can the penis be surgically lengthened?
Cutting the suspensory ligaments increases the length of the penis. This can be at the same time as the fat transfer procedure. Generally, gains of 2 to 4 cm can be achieved depending on patient anatomy and post-operative scarring.
4) Does penis enlargement improve sexual performance? Does it have an effect on sexual satisfaction?
The quality and how long an erection is maintained depend on a number of factors both physical and psychological. The quality of the sexual act cannot be equated to the girth of the penis but it is a fact that concern about one’s penis may lead to a psychological block that may inhibit erection. Penis enlargement surgery will improve self-confidence but will not improve erection. One of the things to check on before and after the operation is sexual satisfaction.
5) Is penis enlargement surgery painful?
Penis enlargement surgery is mildly painful. Appropriate pain medication will be prescribed. The operation takes place under general anaesthesia so you will not feel anything during the surgery.

The surgery is ambulatory or a 1 night stay may be necessary.
