Penile enlargement

Dr. Reed, Do you perform penile enlargement?  Russ

Dear Russ,

Men seeking penile enlargement should be aware of normal penile lengths (differs for Orientals – about 5 to 5/12″, Caucasians, about 5 1/2″ and Afro-Americas about 6″.  Frankly we do more penile enlargement revision surgery than primary surgery.  Perhaps, body enhancement is the primary reason men seek penile enlargement, not partner dissatisfaction.  

If you are considering penile enlargement remember there is penile length, done as a procedure unto itself, and penile girth enhancement.  Lengthening can be achieved with traction alone and for girth we favor AlloDerm.  The 2 procedures should not be done simultaneously.  Injection of liquid products such as silicone and fat into the penis may result in asymmetrical contours and lumps or fibro-fatty nodules.  Injections tend to go into tissues planes of least resistance.
