Myths and realities about penis enlargement


Indeed, penis enlargement is a reality thanks to advanced plastic surgery. This procedure, called phalloplasty, is mainly done for aesthetic purposes. Through this procedure, men can experience an increase in the length of their penis, ranging from 20% to 30%.

It is also possible to achieve an increase in thickness WITHOUT surgery, using hyaluronic acid fillers.

From this point on, we tell you that “miracle pills” and “exercises” do not work as advertised. In fact, in this blog, we will debunk several myths so you don’t fall into misinformation.

Myths and Realities about Penis Lengthening

MYTH 1: I will get a longer penis but lose sensitivity

Fortunately, this is incorrect. Sensitivity is not affected, as during the lengthening surgery, the nerves or the skin that provide sensitivity to the penis are not manipulated.

MYTH 2: Anyone is a candidate for the procedure

Definitely not. Before undergoing the procedure, it is crucial to undergo evaluation by a certified plastic surgeon experienced in this type of surgery, such as Dr. Juan José Ruiz Treviño, MD, FACS. He will determine if the patient is a candidate for the procedure or not. In some cases, a patient with a “micropenis” (a penis that measures less than 6 centimeters in an erect state) might be recommended by the doctor for the procedure. Additionally, if during the consultation the plastic surgeon detects psychological problems in the patient, it is likely that they will refer the patient to a specialist such as a psychologist or psychiatrist before considering surgery.

MYTH 3: Penis Lengthening Surgery is not the only solution

Nowadays, numerous methods are promoted that promise results without the need for surgery, but most of them do not work and can even be dangerous. Some of these options include:

Manual exercises such as stretches: Although promoted on websites and blogs, they rarely produce significant and consistent results.

Pumps, extenders, or weights for the penis: These devices can be uncomfortable and annoying, and their results are usually temporary.

Pills or drugs: They may temporarily increase penile firmness, but do not permanently alter its size. Some “natural” products can be risky to health.

MYTH 4: I can have sexual intercourse immediately after surgery

This is completely false. The surgeon will give you specific instructions, including the use of medications and changes in your personal care routine for faster recovery. Generally, you will be advised to wait for a period before resuming sexual activity, and the necessary time will vary depending on your individual situation.

MYTH 5: I can reverse the changes after surgery

Phalloplasty is irreversible. It is of utmost importance to make an informed decision and seek advice from Dr. Juan José Ruiz Treviño. Before surgery, you should discuss the risks and all your doubts. Consult with previous patients who have undergone the procedure and make your decision calmly and consciously.
