Penile Enlargement: Is it right for me?


In Professor Moore’s experience, most men want an increase in the length of the penis when flaccid and erect. Many of the earlier operations for increasing penile length achieved only increases in the flaccid state.

Professor Moore uses a modified technique to increase the length of the penis when it is both flaccid and erect. This patented technique is the only one capable of producing increases in the erect length and can only be performed at The Australian Centre for Penile Surgery.


Being more confident in the shape or size of your penis will allow you to approach your relationships with added confidence. If your penis is of average size and you would like to experience enhanced pleasure for yourself and your partner, you may wish to consider penile enlargement.

If your penis is somewhat smaller than average, you may wish to have the operation simply so that you can feel more at ease when, for example, you are in the shower at the gym after a workout.

Before your surgery, you will be provided with all the information you need to ensure you are prepared for what happens after your operation, and to make sure your recovery is as smooth as possible.

Any post-operative pain is managed with a Pain Buster system, which delivers a metered dose of local anaesthetic into the operation area. You will be pain free. There may be some discomfort but you WILL be pain free. Some oral pain relief is also supplied.

You will need to spend two weeks lying flat in bed in order to minimise any swelling. Excessive swelling strains the blood supply of the penile skin and may cause it to die, resulting in loss of shaft skin. This is almost entirely avoided by lying flat.

During this time, you will also need to take a combination of three drugs to prevent you having erections. As a side effect of these drugs, you will feel very drowsy.

Typically, during the third week after surgery you will be able to resume your usual activities. Extreme physical activity such as jogging, sex, and lifting weights in excess of half a kilo are to be avoided for a minimum of six weeks following surgery.


Follow up with Professor Moore post-surgery is necessary in order to prevent complications and to ensure the desired outcome has been achieved.
During the first two weeks Professor Moore will be available 24/7 to all his patients. The first follow-up consultation will take place four weeks after surgery, and this is followed by a second follow-up appointment at three months. At this stage, you will be shown how to ensure the resulting scar can be effectively improved.

A further consultation will take place four months after surgery. After this, follow-up consultations should take place every three months until the scar is mature, at around 12 to 18 months post operation.


The size of the penis after surgery is limited by the initial size of the penis. Typically, an increase of between 1-2cms in diameter and 2.5-7cms in length can be achieved.

Smoking must be stopped at least two weeks prior to surgery, and for six months after surgery. This is because healing and recovery is inhibited and the chance of wound breakdown/infection is greatly increased if you smoke. This will be discussed during your initial consultation.

Following the widening procedure the penis will be very red and swollen for at least 14 days and sexual activity needs to be restricted for a six-week period. In the penile lengthening technique a small wound at the base of the abdomen is the only evidence of surgery. This wound heals quickly and is well disguised by the pubic hair. Following lengthening both the penis and the scrotum are swollen and this takes some time to resolve. Both procedures require two weeks of downtime.

Because of the surgical techniques employed by Professor Moore, both penile lengthening and widening are permanent procedures. The Australian Centre for Penile Surgery does not recommend penile widening by fat injection because of the risk of fat necrosis. Prof Moore uses dermal fat grafting which is long-lasting in 98 percent of cases, and produces excellent results.

All surgery carries risks such as infection and bleeding. Both penis widening and lengthening are generally of low risk as there is no interference with the function, sensation, erection or urination.

During any procedure, Professor Moore endeavours to minimise and hide the signs of surgery. It is impossible to cut the skin without leaving a scar. However, you will be provided with a management plan to ensure you can minimise the appearance of any scar, which will fade over time.

During follow-up, you’ll be taught how to stretch your scar. If you fail to perform this exercise properly, some or all of the length gained through surgery might be lost.

Retraction may also result from the patient’s own excessive production of adrenaline, which causes the penis to shrink. This is extremely rare.


Breast Augmentation

Women looking to achieve a fuller bust line, whether it be a lifestyle choice or due to mastectomy.
Your breasts are your choice. Any reputable and experienced surgeon will aim to provide an augmentation that satisfies your body goals while retaining your body proportions. Breasts that are causing back, neck, shoulder pain and injury or that impact your quality of life are too big for the proportions of your frame.
Prof Colin Moore will give you all the information you need for the saline vs. silicone decision. Both saline and silicone implants have their pros and cons regarding the way they feel, the size of the incision during surgery, their shape and their risks.
There are two types of implants available: round and teardrop shape. Round implants offer more fullness in the upper region of the breast. They are perfectly round and are often the preference for women whose breast volume was lost through breast feeding or weight loss.
Teardrop implants offer fullness in the lower half of the breast and produce an attractive, more natural appearance.
Initially, as nerves and blood vessels recover from the surgery, your nipples will feel more sensitive. This should return to normal as your body recovers from the surgery.
Some women have no issues breast feeding, but others may have some difficulty producing milk if the breast does not have the tissue required for milk production or blood vessels are damaged during the implant process.
Capsule contractures and ruptures are the most common issues that can arise from breast implant surgery. Scar tissue can form after the surgery, which tightens and thickens over time. These contractures can compress or shift the implant and affect the insertion site, causing discomfort. Ruptures, on the other hand, can only be detected by ultrasound, but since silicone implants are designed with barriers in place that block the silicone from leaking into the body, ruptures are rare. Regular checkups are essential to ensure your implants are healing properly.
Yes, for the first two weeks you will need someone to help with any children and drive you to any appointments. You should also avoid reaching for things or carrying anything heavy, but you are encouraged to walk and move around to ensure good circulation.
Prof Moore will consult with you about whether you require a medical compression bra. You will be wrapped in compression bandages following the surgery to assist with support and to reduce swelling.
Understandably, your breasts may be swollen and sore to touch following the procedure. The skin may feel tight and you may suffer from some bruising. Prof Colin Moore can provide pain relief as required post-operatively.
Yes, breast implants are not designed to last forever, but may last up to 20 years.

Breast Lift

A breast lift elevates the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest. It can be combined with breast augmentation, and it is often performed for women who are happy with their breast volume, but unhappy with their breast positioning.
Prof Moore will discuss with you how your particular surgery will go. Surgeries do vary, but typically involve the removal of breast tissue and the repositioning of the areola to a higher position.
While the first few days after surgery may be painful, pain medication can be used to control discomfort. At the two-week mark, you should be able to return to work (no manual labour or heavy-lifting roles).

Abdominoplasty

Ideally, you will have finished having children and reached your desired weight (albeit for the excess skin). You should be in good health with no pre-existing medical conditions. Your mental and emotional resilience is important too.
Also known as a tummy tuck, the procedure removes excess skin and stubborn fat on the abdomen that can accumulate after pregnancy, weight gain or with the effects of ageing.
No, if you are not at your desired weight, a tummy tuck would not be advised as the procedure would most likely have to be redone once you are at the desired weight.
You can, however it is not advised to do so, especially if you become pregnant while the surgery is healing. Pregnancy could cause serious issues with the muscles that have been tightened and the scar itself if the procedure hasn’t finished healing.
Yes, it is made hip to hip, just above the pubic line.
The incision is usually placed so that it is hidden by underwear or your bikini bottom. It will always be visible, but with proper care, the scar will fade over time.
Yes, during a full abdominoplasty, the fascia and rectus abdominus muscles are lifted, which tightens the muscles and makes it hard to stand up. During recovery, you are encouraged to get up and move around, even though you will not be able to stand up straight for a few days.
If you manage your weight and do not become pregnant following your tummy tuck, then there is no reason the procedure should not be fairly permanent. The tissue will relax as you age, but it will not be as significant as the pre-operative state.

Buttocks Enhancement

Fat from other parts of your body are used. Liposuction is performed to transfer fat from one part of your body into your buttocks.
As society perceptions of beauty continue to shift, there is a greater appreciation for a fuller, curvier, more shapely buttocks. Many people are looking to increase their buttocks size, add shape to their flat backside and have a more symmetrical buttocks.
Fat can either be taken from the hips, abdomen or lower back, depending on the amount of fat available in each region. The fat is then purified and injected back into the buttocks using a series of injections across the area. Injections are done in varying depths to ensure the greatest fat absorption rate.
Yes, but only for a short time. You will need to lie on your stomach in bed to allow for the fat to take shape. You may also have a tender backside from the injections.
This varies depending on your body’s fat reabsorption rate. In general, 20% of the fat injected is reabsorbed into your body. If your body does this at a greater rate, the enhancement will last a shorter amount of time.
For ease of access and comfort, we recommend loose-fitting dresses and loose-fitting trousers.
This all depends on the type of work you do. Enhancement patients can go back to work four or five days after the procedure on the provision that you do not put any pressure on the enhancement location. You will also still be wearing a compression garment over the liposuction sites.
Beyond the general surgical risks are potential fat injection risks, such as:
1) Additional surgery to correct the fat absorption and consequent asymmetry.
2) Fat embolism, which is the injection of fat into the bloodstream that causes inflammation in the lungs.
3) Fatty tissue found deep in the skin might die (fat necrosis), which can result in infection and further medical intervention.
4) Disappointment in the results as the effect of the transfer may not last as long as you would like.

G-spot Enhancement

If you have a desire to make your G-spot more accessible or you are seeking more intense orgasms, then you are a good candidate.
G-spot enhancement involves the injection of collagen into strategic areas of the vaginal wall. Through enlarging this erogenous area, sexual pleasure can be enhanced as the area is more amenable to pressure during sexual intercourse.
The procedure should take no longer than 30 minutes. You may feel a little tender, but you will be able to drive yourself home.
Yes, your surgeon will advise whether a vaginoplasty, clitoral hood reduction and labiaplasty can be combined with the procedure, depending on your body and lifestyle. In some occasions, it may be better to perform the G-spot enhancement first as it is not a surgical procedure.
The procedure is simple and straight forward, and it is performed under local anaesthetic.
Your body will naturally absorb the collagen over time. The injections last anywhere from three to six months.
As it is not a surgical procedure, women can return to normal sexual activity within a few hours and will notice the heightened stimulation.
Your partner will notice that they can locate your G-spot more easily.

Vaginoplasty

Women who have decided not to have any more children are great candidates.
The procedure has the potential to enhance sexual gratification. Your confidence and increased self-esteem following the procedure may also positively impact your sex life.
Guidelines recommend you abstain from sex for eight weeks. Some women still experience tenderness at 10 -12 weeks.
While kegel and pelvic floor exercises are great for strengthening muscles, a vaginoplasty can enhance the vaginal muscle, tone, strength and control even further.
The procedure tightens the vaginal muscles and supports tissues with a laser or scalpel to make precise incisions. The procedure generally takes about one hour.

Labiaplasty

There is no one-size-fits-all measurement for labia. You may experience discomfort during sexual intercourse or during physical activity like running or cycling, and you may experience discomfort while wearing tight-fitting clothing.
Some women may also feel that their labia are too fat and look to a labiaplasty as a corrective measure. One labia may be longer than the other or may look aesthetically unappealing as well.
A labiaplasty can be performed on both the inner and outer lips if required.
Yes, it is permanent. It is also important to note that this procedure does not tighten your vagina, however a labiaplasty can be combined with other vaginal procedures if desired.
Prof Moore will discuss the operation with you in detail to ensure you are well-informed about the surgery and your recovery. Most commonly, the labiaplasty is performed to reduce the size of the labia minora (the inner lips). The surgeon removes the unwanted tissue and remodels the labia into the desired shape and size (as discussed in your previous consultations). Alternatively, a wedge-shaped section of the labia is removed. A laser may be used instead of a scalpel to reduce bleeding.
No, it is generally an outpatient procedure.
You should be able to return to work within four to six days and fully recovered in six to eight weeks. Tampons, sex, and tight underwear are not recommended during the recovery time.
It is unlikely that anyone looking at your vagina will be able to tell you have had the surgery.

Penis Enlargement

Phalloplasty is a procedure that permanently enlarges the penis.
Yes, in addition to increasing flaccid length and girth, Prof Moore’s surgery is capable of producing increases in an erect penis, which can only be performed at his clinic. He has years of experience performing phalloplasty procedures.
Yes, it can permanently improve both the appearance and function of the penis.
Typically during surgery, the section of the penis that resides inside of the body is extracted, resulting in a permanent augmentation.
The penile lengthening procedure essentially exposes the part of the penis that is hidden inside the body, which makes up about one-third of the total penis length. Penile lengthening is done by cutting the ligaments at the base of the penis via a low abdominal incision. These ligaments act as the “guy ropes of the tent” and, once severed, allow the penis to lengthen naturally. Tissue is then placed between the pubic bone and the lengthened penis.
The length of the penis can usually increase between 2.5 and 5 centimetres in its erect state, and in its flaccid state the length is usually doubled. Width can be increased by around 1 to 2 centimetres in both the flaccid and erect state.
To widen the penis during penis enlargement surgery, Prof Moore prefers dermal fat grafts taken from the stomach or buttocks to widen the erectile cylinders of the penis underneath the skin. The fat is inserted beneath the skin of the shaft of the penis.
Fat injections are not a permanent solution and may lead to other surgeries to correct lumps. Prof Moore does not perform fat injections.
Patients may need to be circumcised before the procedure if they are not already. Circumcision will take place as part of the phalloplasty procedure, and it is performed to avoid problems that may result from the thickened foreskin if it were to remain intact following penile widening.
For the first 48 to 72 hours after surgery, you will use a “pain buster system” where a catheter releases local anaesthetic into the area.
You will also take medication to suppress erections; this ensures the grafts and sutures don’t dislodge.
At least two weeks of bedrest is recommended after your procedure, and patients may experience some swelling for up to three months. The bandaging can be removed a week after surgery, and the sutures dissolve by themselves.
Yes, it will, but the scarring will fade in one to three years following surgery. The duration of scarring depends on the type of grafting used and the patient’s individual healing response.
Sex can be resumed around six weeks after surgery.
Yes, you will be taught how to perform scar stretching exercises to assist in ensuring a permanent outcome.

Hidden Penis

A hidden penis occurs when you have a penis that is hidden under the pubic fat-pad. In some cases, the penis may be getting pulled inwards by a dense subcutaneous fascia.
A hidden penis is usually a congenital condition where excessive fat is located directly above the penis. Additionally, the penis may not be fixed in the normal position due to poor skin attachment. A tight foreskin may also trap the penis in place.
If you have a hidden penis, you are likely suffering from repeated infections due to trapped urine. Younger sufferers may have a poor body image and a lower self-esteem due to inconveniences like having to sit to urinate.
Weight loss can correct the condition for some patients. For others, surgery is required. Depending on the severity of the condition and the cause of the condition, different procedures will be considered. Prof Moore will discuss these with you during your consultations.
Surgery generally takes an hour, and most patients are able to bathe 24 hours later. Patients can resume sexual activity after one month.

Penoscrotal Surgery

A percentage of men are embarrassed by and can suffer discomfort from their large and low-hanging scrotum. They may also be limited in the sports they can play due to the size of their scrotum. Men may feel self-conscious in sexual situations and may even suffer from having their scrotum dip in toilet water whenever they sit down.
There is no correct size. However, there is the right size for you, which would be proportionate to your body and your testicles. Your scrotum exists to house your testicles and will generally adjust to house them safely once surgery is complete.
Do you suffer from thigh irritation, chafing and discomfort when you wear clothing? If your answer is yes, then your scrotum may need to be addressed. As you age, your scrotal skin may sag causing these discomforts.
Yes, under local or twilight anaesthesia the simple technique involves removing the skin only. On occasion, a small rotation of muscle or additional tissue graft is needed to reinforce the stretched and thinned skin tissue. Natural shape and sensation are of paramount importance.
Yes, the viability of sperm may be affected by this procedure. Prof Moore will discuss this with you.
With no hospital stay required, you will be sent home with some swelling and possible bruising for a few days. Ice packs can assist with these problems in the first few days. Prof Moore will provide you with at-home care instructions to ensure the best recovery possible.
It is important to be sensible about your activity. It’s inadvisable to ride motorbikes, go horse riding or partake in sexual activity until you have completely healed.
The scrotum is a sensitive area and risks are minimised when you choose an experienced, qualified surgeon such as Prof Moore. Any surgery carries risks, but choosing a surgeon with experience in your procedure can aid in reducing complications. Sperm viability may be affected by the procedure, however, it is not viewed as a major concern for most patients.

Hypospadias

This is a fundamental symptom of hypospadias. Hypospadias sufferers have a penis opening that is generally in the wrong location on the underside of their penis.
Unless it is in a more extreme location, it is difficult to detect in uncircumcised infants and young boys. The condition can be missed until they are young boys.
The cause is not known. It is not strictly inherited, but it does tend to occur in families with some history of hypospadias.
It is best for surgery to occur before the child is two years old, and the procedure is usually on an outpatient basis.
The operation aims to move the urethral opening to the end of the penis so the child will be able to stand and pass urine effectively.
If your son requires surgery, it is recommended that you do not have your son circumcised. The foreskin is needed for the corrective surgery. He will be circumcised following the procedure.
Parents will probably first notice the occurrence of hypospadias and bring it to the attention of their GP for a diagnosis. You may be referred to a urologist for further tests and a diagnosis.

Testicle Implants

Silicone and saline testicles are pre-fabricated implants that come in varying sizes. The procedure is performed to balance uneven testicles, replace a damaged testicle and restore the appearance of non-functioning testicles.
Silicone implants are slightly firmer, but they are safe and feel very natural. Saline is softer, but more expensive.
A small incision will be made in the scrotum and the implant placed into position. The incision is stitched closed and the scrotum bandaged to minimise movement and assist in fluid absorption. The surgery takes about an hour under general anaesthetic.
• You will be required to follow your post-operative care plan.
• You will be in the hospital for two to three days after the procedure.
• You should return to work after two weeks of recovery – any manual labour roles will require the full recovery period.
• Sexual intercourse can begin after six weeks.
Implants have the ability to restore confidence and increase your sense of masculinity. For some men, it is the satisfaction of not feeling embarrassed by asymmetrical scrotum.
Implants are non-functioning – they do not produce testosterone or sperm.

Bent Penis

A slight curve is normal in a penis. It can add pleasure to intercourse. There may be an issue if a man or his partner is experiencing pain during an erection or intercourse. An extreme curve may be an indication of Peyronie’s Disease.
No, it is not transferable to anybody. Peyronie’s is caused by a build-up of plaques in the penis. This scar tissue plaque restricts the penis from expanding properly and can be quite painful. It can appear to happen overnight (as the plaque build-up is unnoticed) or it can develop less quickly.
Yes, while it is more common in middle-age men, Peyronie’s can occur in men in their twenties all the way up to their seventies.
Damage to the lining of the penis’s erectile cylinders is thought to be the cause. This damage can be due to sexual intercourse positions that forcefully bend the penis down or out of its usual shape.
A plaque or nodule may be present. These develop under the skin as a lump. They are most commonly found between the middle and the head of the penis.
Peyronie’s is painful initially and this is one of the first signs of the disease. Your penis may be painful while flaccid or while erect. Once the scar tissue matures, the pain does resolve. However, the scarring can cause significant curvature which is painful for you and your partner. Peyronie’s can cause erectile problems.
Correction involves surgery, and several options exist including the Nesbitt tuck procedure, which involves cutting out the plaque and some laser surgery. Prof Moore will advise which procedure will maximise results for your penis.

Congenital Penile Chordee

Chordee is a hereditary birth defect affecting the penis that causes a curve. The curve is most visible when the penis is erect.
Yes, the surgery can be performed after the baby is six months old.
There are several techniques Prof Moore may apply. These will be discussed at your consultations, and can include:
• Removal of tissue that is shortening the erection
• Ensuring the longer and shorter sides of the penis are equal in length
• Lengthening the urethra if the urethra is short and causing the curve (tissue from the foreskin or another site will be used to craft the urethra).
The surgery takes only one or two hours under a general anaesthetic. It is generally an outpatient procedure.
An erection is stimulated through an injection to confirm that it is straight when erect.
You will be under a general anaesthetic for the procedure, and medication will be prescribed after the surgery to manage pain. When you return home, you should only engage in light, gentle activities while the penis heals.

Overcoming Impotence

Millions of men of all ages experience the inability to keep an erection. They can still orgasm and conceive children, but with difficulty.
Impotence can be psychological or physical. For most men it is generally easy to identify whether the problem is mental or physical.
This is generally a result of physical damage that has become permanent and will require treatment. For example, diabetes causes hardening of the arteries which can lead to impotence. Smoking also increases rates of impotence. Successful treatment for physical impotence can involve a penile implant operation. Injury, disease, hormonal imbalance or surgeries can all impact physical impotence as well.
A man’s anxiety or fear that he will not perform adequately can cause psychological impotence. Men that are stressed and worried cannot relax enough to maintain an erection. When addressed in its early stages, counselling or sex therapy can help men overcome psychological impotence.
Yes, penile implants are commonly utilised to treat impotence caused by diabetes or hardening arteries. There are two basic types of implants: inflatable and flexible rod implants. Flexible rods produce a permanently firm penis while inflatable rods produce a controllable, natural erection.
