Penis Enlargement

The only FDA-approved procedure for penis enlargement is Penuma which is a crescent-shaped piece of medical-grade silicone inserted under the penis skin to make it longer and wider. An incision is made in the groin area just above the base of the penis. An individual Penuma device designed to fit the patient's specific penis shape is then inserted into the shaft over the corpus cavernosa, like a sheath. The procedure generally takes 45 minutes to an hour to complete.

Ideal candidates are healthy individuals who want to enlarge the size and length of their penis. Patients suffering from a skin infection or inflammation on the penis, a history of previous abdominal or pelvic surgery, a history of kidney transplant or any other medical condition that can impair the healing process are not suitable candidates.

The typical cost for a penis enlargement procedure ranges from $4000-$15,000.The final cost depends on anesthesia fees, the geographic location of the procedure and if any other procedures are performed at the same time.

Patients can return home the same day as the procedure. There could be some slight discomfort, swelling and soreness. Patients are advised to keep the penis pointing towards the belly button to prevent it from being curved downward. Patients should refrain from sexual activity and other strenuous physical activities for 4-6 weeks. The results generally last for 9-10 years.
