Penis enlargement surgery, often referred to as phalloplasty, is a procedure that achieves permanent enlargement of the penis through improving a patient’s length and girth. It is a surgery that is popular with men who are born with a small penis or for those who have suffered from trauma, as well as men that simply wish to enlarge the length and width of the penis for cosmetic reasons.
Dr Peter Laniewski is an experienced plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has been performing phalloplasty surgery for many years. This includes for medical and aesthetic reasons. His extensive training, experience and qualifications in plastic reconstructive, general and urological surgery enable him to deliver results that his patients can enjoy for years to come.
Prior to undergoing phalloplasty surgery, patients will complete a full assessment with Dr Peter Laniewski to discuss the penis enlargement procedure. This will include talking through what you can expect from phalloplasty and the results you wish to achieve. In addition, the consultation will involve going over the risks associated with the procedure, any side effects of the surgery and after-care. Nothing will be left out so you can gain the full picture before undergoing phalloplasty.
Patients are also welcome to ask any questions they have about penis enlargement surgery and let Dr Peter Laniewski answer your queries before arranging the next steps of the process.
Penis Enlargement Surgery Procedure
Penis enlargement surgery involves undergoing two procedures, which can be performed as a combined surgery or separately at different times that suit the patient. You will be administered a general anaesthetic prior to going into theatre and the penis enlargement surgery normally lasts around four hours.
The first stage of penis enlargement will involve lengthening the penis. Almost half the length of the penis sits inside the body and it is attached internally to the public bone by the suspensory ligament. In order to lengthen the penis, this suspensory ligament will be released and this will allow the penis to protrude further and appear longer while at rest. This is done by cutting the ligaments through an incision made to the abdomen.
The second procedure involves widening the girth of the penis, which will make it appear thicker. While there are several treatments that can be performed to do this, such as fat injections or permanent filler injections, Dr Laniewski prefers to use fat grafting by injections. This is due to the results being more predictable and effective for the patient. Dr Laniewski will take a graft of skin and tissue from the inner thigh of the patient and insert it along the shaft of the penis, using two small incisions at the top and base of the shaft. This will create a wider and thicker looking penis.
Once you have woken up from the general anaesthetic and completion of phalloplasty surgery, it is normal to feel some pain and tenderness on your body. Patients will be given painkillers to reduce pain and minimise discomfort where it is possible to do so. In addition, the penis can be red and swollen after surgery, which can take several weeks to subside. This should not alert the patient. Full recovery from penis enlargement surgery is around four to six weeks.
