3 things you should know about Phalloplasty


Phalloplasty, a surgical procedure aimed at lengthening and thickening the male member. As surgical options advance, it’s important to understand some key aspects before considering this process.

In this blog, we’ll explore three fundamental things you should know about phalloplasty.

  1. Varied Approaches
    Phalloplasty is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. There are several approaches and techniques that plastic surgeons use to meet each patient’s specific needs. The two main approaches are:

a) Lengthening: This procedure focuses on increasing the length of the penis. It is carried out by releasing the ligaments that attach the penis to the pubic bone, allowing part of the internal member to be exposed. However, it’s important to note that lengthening does not guarantee drastic results and may vary from patient to patient.

b) Thickening: This variant of phalloplasty focuses on increasing the thickness of the penis. This is usually achieved through fat injection taken from another part of the body or through the use of tissue grafts. Like with lengthening, results may vary and depend on various factors, including individual anatomy.

Thickening can also be done without surgery using hyaluronic acid fillers.

  1. Realistic Expectations
    It’s crucial to understand that phalloplasty does not radically transform the male member. Results can vary from patient to patient and depend on factors such as initial anatomy, surgical technique, and each man’s recovery capacity. Therefore, it’s important to set realistic expectations and have open communication with the surgeon to understand what can be achieved.
  2. Recovery Process
    Recovery after this procedure may require time and patience. You are likely to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the first few weeks. It is essential to follow your surgeon’s instructions to the letter to ensure optimal recovery. Returning to normal activities, including sexual activity, may take several weeks or even months, depending on the type of procedure and your recovery.

This procedure can have a significant impact on the confidence and quality of life of some men.
