Question: Penis Lengthening

 Floralcrest - Sun Feb 03, 2008 2:51 pm

Dear Doctor,

I would like to consider penis lengthening, but am not interested in undergoing surgery. Many things have been advertised on the market, from pills to vacum tubes, etc.

Are there any products, excercises or procedures, barring surgery, which are medically recognized as having the ability to produce any results?

Also, in the case that the answer is no, are there any methods which could be recommended for the widening of the penis?

Thank you.

User avatar Most penis enlargement advertisements are scams. Do not be taken in by these. They are also based on many false ideas of what a penis should be and have little relevance to how partners feel about it. They are selling an illusion that bigger is better. Even surgical techniques for cosmetic penis enlargement are not endorsed by
The American Urological Association, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons(ASPS). In fact they have all issued policy statements against cosmetic surgical procedures to enhance the penis.

Perception is often the problem - you think you have a small penis, and assume that increasing the size will make you more sexually desirable. Most likely your penis is within the normal size range — and even if it is smaller than average, it may not matter as much as you thought. Avoid time-consuming, expensive or dangerous techniques that may at best be only minimally effective. The most effective solution may be as easy as open communication with your partner, talking with a professional counselor or enhancing yourself in other ways.

Best wishes.
