Put away your penis weights and pumps. Here are the true facts of permanent penis enlargement with the Australian Centre for Cosmetic and Penile Surgery.
FACT: Phalloplasty – or penile surgery – can permanently improve both the appearance and function of the penis. It is suitable for men who’ve been born with an unusually small penis, who have suffered trauma or who simply wish to make their penis larger.
Typically during surgery, the section of the penis that resides inside the body is extracted, resulting in a permanent augmentation.
I’m a stat man: show me the facts and figures.
FACT: The length of the penis can usually be increased between 2.5 and 5cm in its erect state and in its flaccid state the length can usually be doubled. Width can be increased by around 1 to 2cm in both the flaccid and erect state.
FACT: Prof. Colin Moore performs 200 penis enlargement surgery procedures per year (on average).
Is longer better?
While most anxieties and physical shortcomings are the reason for most initial enquiries with the Australian Centre for Cosmetic and Penile Surgery it is important to not forget penis width.
FACT: The procedure offered by Prof Colin Moore can widen and lengthen the penis in one operation.
FACT: Phalloplasty can help with feelings of inadequacy, embarrassment, low self-esteem and performance anxiety.
Surgery: the long and the short of it.
The penile lengthening procedure essentially exposes the part of the penis that is hidden inside the body, which makes for 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.
FACT: The procedure performed at the Australian Centre for Cosmetic and Penile Surgery allows for increased length in a flaccid and erect state. Through years of experience and research Prof. Colin Moore modified his operation to the one used today that achieves increases in flaccid and erect penis length.
Don’t forget your girth.
To widen the penis during penis enlargement surgery, Prof. Colin Moore’s prefers dermal fat grafts taken from the stomach or buttocks to widen the erectile cylinders of the penis underneath the skin. This ensures the increase in diameter is even all along the shaft and back inside the tissues deep within the intra-pubic region.
The dermal fat graft is taken from the buttock/thigh fold or abdomen and inserted beneath the skin of the shaft of the penis.
FACT: Dermal Fat Grafting (DFG) was introduced as a surgical technique by Prof. Colin Moore in 1988. This procedure is preferred over fat injections as they use the patient’s own tissue and have an excellent take rate far better and produce aa permanent result.
Fat injections: not the way to go!
FACT: Fat injections of this kind are NOT performed by Prof. Colin Moore.
Fat injections arenot a permanent solution and may often require additional surgery to correct fat that may persist in lumps causing other penile conditions.
Do I need to be circumcised to have these surgeries?
FACT: Patients who are not circumcised may need to be as part of the phalloplasty procedure in order to avoid problems that may result from the thickened foreskin if it were to remain intact following penile widening.
The pain factor: Are you cupping your bits and pieces protectively as you read this?
The operation typically takes around four hours to complete, which is followed by an extensive recovery process.
FACT: 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 (sweet relief!).
No stiffness allowed. During this period, you will also take medication to suppress erections; this ensures the grafts and sutures don’t dislodge (Ouch).
Two weeks of bed rest is recommended post-operatively, 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.
Typically, 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.
After the penile lengthening procedure, 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.
Road testing your new gear.
FACT: Sex can be resumed around six weeks after surgery, and men will generally be fit to resume normal activities after six to 10 weeks.
When you say permanent you mean permanent right?
FACT: Do your stretching exercises. The permanency of your procedure is in your hands – literally.
Your first follow up visit is at 4 weeks to check on everything. At your three month visit you will be taught how to perform scar stretching exercises. A month later Prof. Colin Moore will check your stretching technique to make sure you get that permanent result!
Retraction is rare, but can occur as a result of normal scar contraction, which is managed by post-operative scar stretching exercises. Not performing scar-stretching exercises properly may result in permanent loss of some or all of the extra length gained at surgery. In very rare circumstances, a natural excess of adrenaline production may cause the penis to shrink.
Surgery is becoming more and more popular for men hoping to lengthen and widen their penis.Penile lengthening is a permanent procedure. Most men are very pleased with the results from both an aesthetic and functional point of view. As technology advances, and the stigma around genital surgery begins to lift, an increasing number of men are opting for phalloplasty. Prof. Colin Moore’s experience, research and techniques at the Australian Centre for Cosmetic and Penile Surgery are the reason why he is the leader in this field of surgery.
