I’m Dr. Paul Gittens, and today, we embark on an insightful journey into the realm of male sexual wellness. One aspect that has gained attention in recent years is Girth Enhancement, a procedure designed to address concerns related to penile size and satisfaction. In this blog post, we’ll explore the intricacies of Girth Enhancement, its potential benefits, considerations, and the importance of seeking professional guidance.
What is Penile Girth Enhancement?
Girth Enhancement, also known as penile girth augmentation, is a medical procedure aimed at increasing the circumference or thickness of the penis. It’s important to note that this procedure is elective and intended for individuals who may have personal reasons or experiences seeking enhancement in this aspect of their sexual health.
How Does Penile Girth Enhancement Work?
Girth Enhancement typically involves the use of various techniques, including injectable fillers or fat transfer which we will talk about today. There are other ways to enhance the girth of the penis such as with Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres and silicone implants. Many of these techniques are not as common at this point and in the case of PMMA are not available in the United States. Either way, the goal of girth enhancement is to provide a natural-looking increase in girth, with results that can enhance both the appearance and potentially the satisfaction of the individual.
Girth Enhancement Techniques
- Injectable Fillers: This technique involves the strategic injection of FDA-approved dermal fillers directly into the penile tissues. These fillers are typically composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body. The injection process is meticulously performed, with the aim of augmenting the girth in a way that appears both natural and proportionate. Patients may choose this method for its non-invasiveness and relatively quick procedure time.
- Fat Transfer: Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting or lipofilling, involves the extraction of fat from one area of the patient’s body, often the abdomen or thighs, through liposuction. After the fat is processed and purified, it is carefully injected into specific areas of the penile tissues to enhance girth. This method offers the advantage of using the patient’s natural tissue, minimizing the risk of rejection or adverse reactions. Fat transfer is a more involved procedure compared to injectable fillers, but it provides a longer-lasting result.
Both techniques are conducted with precision, taking into account the unique anatomy and aesthetic goals of the individual. The goal is to achieve a balanced and harmonious enhancement that aligns with the patient’s desired outcomes, whether that be a subtle improvement or a more pronounced change in girth.
Benefits of Girth Enhancement
- Improved Confidence: For some men, increased girth can lead to enhanced self-esteem and body confidence..
- Personal Satisfaction: Girth Enhancement is a personal choice, and individuals may opt for the procedure to align their physical appearance with their desired level of satisfaction.
- Experience: Physician experience is the most important factor when it comes to placing fillers for girth enhancement.
- Uneven appearance of the penis: Depending on the size and shape of the penis and how the filler is placed the penis may appear uneven or lumpy and bumpy depending on how the filler is placed.
- Infection: Just like any procedure there is a risk of infection when filler is placed into the penis.
